"LOCK" voice announcement implementation?


Recommended Posts

I assume this will show up once the F-16 starts getting more attention once the F-18 gets feature complete.

They'll be giving the F-16 more attention soon and start adding/fixing features. Before that happens though, they gotta get the F/A-18C, Mi-24 and AH-64 out of early access... 😎

Can we exepect this to be implemented for each time you get an STT lock given the voice file is already implemented and is played while performing the respective system test?

This is correct behaviour. The LOCK voice message is heard during ground test, but is not operable in flight.

+1 still no callout. I think it is simple code.

It's actually so simple to code that ED coded it correctly without adding a single line of code.

So that's mean there will be no voice "LOCK" in dogfight mode?

Can you share more information? Not operable for the specific version/tape simulated by ED or in general?

I stand corrected. I've searched far and wide and our F-16 actually has the lock message.
Afaik, only when in ACM modes will you get the lock message when the radar locks a target. This is the case for at least the block 40,42, 50 and 52. The greek block 50/52, the OCU versions and the MLU's all don't have the LOCK message from what I know.
Sorry for the confusion everyone.

Yes It's a ACM only thing, apparently even HAF Vipers have it, you can see here in this video I found:



During this mock dogfight (sim mode is engaged) at 0:39 switching to vertical scan, then bore and obtaining lock (with VMS " lock" call) at 0:52.

I said apparently because of the description contained in the video.

Whether the greeks have it or not is really irrelevant. All that matters is that we should have it in our F-16.

The greek F-16C block 50 does NOT have an in-flight function for the LOCK message. This I am very sure about, your statement about ALL F-16Cs having the LOCK message is incorrect.
