Maverick Bore-sighting is always perfect.


Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

As noted in another thread, turns out that the boresighting on the F-16's mavericks is always perfect, even if intentionally done incorrectly.

Expected Results: Boresight the Maverick incorrectly against a different target than the TGP is looking at, resulting in an incorrect calibration. When Slewing TGP to new target and handing off to Maverick, would expect Maverick to now retain boresighting error and not be correlated to the TGP. Requiring re-boresighting to correct error.

Observed Results: Boresighting is "perfect" even if intentionally done against targets far away from the TGP Fov. Proper boresighting technique can essentially be skipped and you can just get a lock on any target and hit the BSGT button and the Missile will be perfectly aligned with TGP.

 

Tracks attached:

Airborne spawn, missiles pre-boresighted, attempted to ruin the boresight by re-boresighting incorrectly. Missiles retain perfect calibration.
Runway spawn, missiles require boresighting. 2 parked helicopters placed on way to target for boresighting. TGP locked right helicopter (AH64D), locked the left helicopter (Chinook) with Maverick and then hit BSGT. Despite procedure error (hundreds of feet between the 2 targets), boresight is perfect.

Recorded on latest Open Beta.

Hi, 

Air start / hot start as far as I remember is already boresighted. 

Try a cold start do you see different results? 

 

thanks

Hi BN,
 

Hot start on the ground is not bresighted. You can see it clearly in my track that its not boresighted when I lock up the helicopter with the TGP for the first time. I can record a cold start track as well, but to me this is superfluous and rather besides my point.


Air starts are boresighted, correct.

Either way it shouldn't really matter. Boresighting should be able to change a pre-boresighted missile to whatever the new boresight setting is, even if its incorrect. Currently the Mav seeker doesn't care where the TGP is looking, as long as the Maverick can lock something and you hit BSGT you get a perfect boresight.

I will confirm with the team in the morning if the error is being simulated or not.

Would also be interesting to ask them if the boresight error is a different random value for every cold start jet, or for every Mav, or is it always the same offset?

I have reported to the team, as soon as I have some answers I will post.

Awesome. Thanks

 

if you need any more tracks recording then let me know and I can.
