Steps to reproduce:

- Activate AA mode (AMRAAM)

- Lock on hostile aircraft with the radar

- Wait until the Patriot-Site is tracking the enemy as well (EWR Warining)

- Launch the AIM-120C

Observed: By pressing the trigger, both weapons (AIM-120C and HARM) will be released at once and the HARM.

Expected: Only one weapon should be released (I expect the AIM-120C as long I'm in AA mode)

Hi,

 

I can not reproduce, when I use the trigger it fires the AMRAAM, the HARM fires when you use the weapon release button.

 

can you check you dont have double inputs?

 

thanks

Hi ok that explained a bit thanks!

On my HOTAS I have

 

First detent = "Weapon Release Button"

Second detent = "Gun Trigger - SECOND DETENT"

 

So that explains why on launching the AMRAAM (on the second detent) the HARM will be launched at same time (Weapon Release Button).

I thought I bound it as it is in real but if it is bound correct I ask me how do they handle it in real (Launching AMRAAM only)?

Or does the Hornet stick has just one detent and WRB is another button?

 

Then the name of the Action might by wrong (if there is only one detent on the Hornet stick) or the key binding for FIRST DETEND is missing or I can't find it 😉

The Trigger launches A2A missiles and fires the gun, while the Weapon Release Button (red button at the top of the stick, to be pressed with your thumb) launches/drops A2G munitions.

I have a question, were you locked by a SAM when this occurred? Was your HUD saying HARM?

Yes

 

Ok then it seems to be no bug thank you!

However I don't understand why the action is called "SECOND DETENT", is there also a "FIRST DETENT"?
