Bomb fall line out of alignment?


Recommended Posts


Maybe you guys can help me. I have a mission that is for practice bombing. I have Jester align the INS fine with a stored heading on the ramp before I ever move. I use map markers to steer point for Jester to enter my route. For some reason every time I get into the AO and select my bombs the bomb fall line is always left or right of center and as a result I can’t hit my targets. There is no wind in this mission. Any suggestions?

If there's no wind, then a slanted BFL is indicative that your alignment has somehow gotten messed up, or you've damaged the INS. 

 

When are you giving Jester the command to enter steer points? Telling Jester to enter multiple waypoints before he's finished entering the first can cause him to get confused and mistakenly enter them as ownship pos. I don't remember if this is still possible after alignment, but best practice is to give jester one waypoint at a time.

 

How many Gs are you putting on the jet on your way to the target? Grossly Over Ging the jet can damage your INS.

Thanks, I think I figured out what’s happening. I’m new to the F14 and utilizing Jester. I just figured out that Jester auto aligns the INS from the stored heading. So when I tell him to “align fine” I’m actually braking his alignment process and messing it up.
