This would be analog to an ILS or TACAN on a supercarrier. They always not only be set up as by identifier and channel, but need to be bound to the unit (supercarrier / tanker / jtac...) in order to work...

 

Hope everything works now and have fun with refueling!

I used to say it was impossible until I replaced my throttle.  You CAN NOT do it with a HOTAS X.

 

Thanks for your help.

Just had a thought and dont mind me asking:

When trying to receive the tacan, do you set up and select on the ufc "a/a"?

Cause this is the way to receive an airborne tacan. If not doing so, you wont receive a signal

Pete is right!!!

 

In the briefing info you wrote down TACAN SHL 21X, but in the ME the TCN assigned was 1X. As I only changed the TCN binding to the tanker I didn't check the briefing info of what you have written. So just dial in 1X A/A and everything should work...

 

Things happen. Some things are minor but have a major outcome...

 

Changed the briefing info to "Tanker KC-130 TACAN "SHL" 1X...

 

Now you should be having fun with refueling.

 

Cheers!

yap, right... you (equinox) assigned 1X... in the mission briefing you wrote 21X. that was the problem

when I do missions, I write down the data in parallel to avoid this...

 

but anyway... things happen, and we always learn from this... 😉

 

good that it works now!

 

cheers
