[AS INTENDED] Wrong changelog entry, Harrier still rolls forward without wheelchocks.


Recommended Posts

Please watch out in future to not add wrong changelog entries, thank you. (afaik it is even intended, that Harrier rolls forward at idle engine power without wheelchocks, or not?)

DCS Wishlist: Stinger fix (frustrating bug since 1+ year already...), TOR SAM selfdestruct-logic (more logical behaviour. Issue since 6+ months already)

canopy 6DOF tracking-limit (deny head-through-canopy), 2K11 Krug SA-4 Ganef SAM

 basic DCS-community rule-of-thumb: Don't believe bad things that a DCS pilot claims about another famous DCS pilot without having analyzed the existing evidence - that would only be bullheadedly

PvP: 125+ hours AV-8B VTOL (denying low-to-medium airspace since 2020), JF-17 AKG-A2A, F-16C, F-14 pilot - PvP campaigns since 2013

AFAIK the Harrier should be able rolling at idle engine, depending weight and terrain etc. Likely it would require little RPM increase to start rolling, but it would not stop by going idle.

IMO at the moment the ground friction is too low, or the idle thrust is too high. You can reach very high speeds @idle thrust... No need to increase RPM to start rolling.

Yes it takes off nicely when you apply NWS. At least on me it otherwise stays still if nose wheel is casting and happens to be off-angle. Once you apply NWS that will turn the nose wheel straight when no pedals are applied, it starts rolling. 

 

Some bug report stated that they got it up to 50 miles speed, but I have got it get to 64 miles speed.

But depending the weight and all, SME is required to tell that how it should start rolling.

Look at my trk-file. 96knots @idle thrust, then the runway ended...

Almost like only thing you would have needed was to rotate nozzles and you would have taken away 😄

Can I suggest the wheel brake?  It's quite useful.

Markin AS INTENDED, this was to fix the lurching motion when the chocks were removed and is not related in any way to ground idle thrust. Marking AS INTENDED and moving to RESOLVED.

Know and use all the capabilities in your airplane. If you don't, sooner or later, some guy who does use them all will kick your ass.
