Recommended Posts

Hello mates! 

Don`t know if it is a known bug but every time that i fire a sparrow F or M they don`t track the enemy, 10 of 10 times that i tried it wont work (master arm, missile prep on, tried pal lock and jester lock both dont guide the missile), and is very easy to reproduce just equip a 7m or 7f and try shoot.


PS: MH version works normal.

Well, the difference of DCS Sparrow and the Zuni Pod is the Zuni have 19 rockets.

Already reported. Only jamming targets are affected ie. Su-24 or Su-27 w/ jamming pods. Funny thing, AIM-7M fired from F-15C tracks just fine against the same targets.

The same for the F-18, AIM-7M works perfectly fine only the F-14 is affected. 

 

Considering you are "DCS Ground Crew", is this officially reported? Because in the Bug report from falconxr8sonic a month ago there was no reaction(thread not marked, no comment from HB).

No, I'm not ED or HB stuff. I just meant that it was mentioned in the bug section.

Tested today on F-14, hornet and F-15C, found all 7M and even 7E from 15C works now but 7F from any of them still no tracking in the exactly same condition. Seems that now 7F tracks nothing beyond 6 nmiles without ECM, 7M tracks from longer rage but nothing with ECM, 7MH works even with ECM.

Still can't get AIM-7M and MH to track SU-24.

Wait, so now MH is bugged too?

Shows you how often i fly these days....

Modules in waiting: MiG-23, A-6, F-4U, F-8, Falklands Map

Wish list: South East Asia map, F-4J/N, F-15A/C, Su-27, Sea Harrier FRS.1, Mirage III, MiG-17.

I did some more testing and figured out the MH failing to track was due to the ACM cover. With the ACM cover down it tracks SU-24s just fine. With the ACM cover up, locking a target changes the missile mode indication from BORE to NORM but it still doesn't track, honestly, I don't think it's trying to boresite either.

 

The AIM-7M on the other hand won't track the SU-24 but will track the SU-25 as has been previously documented. Also, I left the ACM cover alone for that test.

F14 7MH ACM cover.trk F14 7MH tracks.trk F14 7M SU24 SU25.trk
