A10C CMS keybinds and different behaviour with new update (DCS


Recommended Posts



With the new update the functionality of the CMS keybindings in A10C appears to have changed.


As of DCS

CMS Z axis now runs the selected CMS programme

CMS UP = 1 Flare

CMS DOWN = 1 Chaff

CMS Left = 6 Flares

CMS Right = 6 Chaff


This doesn't match with the manual and what it was doing yesterday before the update

CMS Z used to activate the ECM pod

CMS Up used to run the selected program

CMS Down used to stop the selected program

CMS Left/Right used to cycle between programs


Have tried to reinstall the A10C module and repair game files (both repair options) with no success. I have no modifications.


Can't find any changes on the latest changelog for A10C.


How do I activate the ECM pod now?

I have the same issue as keks166. Functionality of CMS switch has changed since latest update of stable.

Functions are now as stated above by keks166.

I also have no mods.

Just had a look in the A10C II user manual and I guess this is the new functionality.


FYI: Can keybind CMSP Next Up Roary and CMSP Next Down Rotary to cycle through the programs quickly

I know there has been no DCS update since this was reported, but the A-10C manual still has the outdated CMS description and should be updated to match the new functionality of the CMS switch.

... there has been now, but the manual has not been updated at all with the initial 2.7 OpenBeta, so the problem remains.

Is this CMS button switch mapping change to match the A-10 C II going to stay like this on the A-10 C?

Just curious to know if this was the actual behavior of the CMS switch on real A-10 C?
