Flight member lock lines on ATK format


Recommended Posts

The lines that currently appear showing the aircraft your flight members have for an L&S on the SA format, are those coming to the ATK RDR format? It can be difficult to break up who is targeting who on the SA page as I can't expand the display, but I could use TWS EXP to do this and help sort targets. Is this a thing on the real jet?

some people say you should be able to designate L&S on SA page, which would also solve your problem

You can expand the SA format. TDC over track and press event mark on HOTAS. This toggles the expanded view. Or you hit step until the track is highlighted and press EXP.

Thank you! That button was always hidden by the stick, so I never noticed it.

Datalink part is a classified supplement. Best to ask sme's

 

FYI you can lock targets via sa

The lock lines are only for the SA, not Attack.

 

A missing piece of the SA is the blanking around the STEP box also. It should occlude any trackfiles inside the box shape, other than the one that's stepped to, so you can see it a lot more decluttered. As mentioned EXPand works too.

 

SA and Attack are hard to cross reference right now due to the funky and wrong MSI logic right now, resulting in tracks having different ranks/IDs, ultimately resulting in different looking HAFUs for the same target on both displays.

No, lock as in acquisition into STT can only be done from the Attack or Az/El. However L&S/DT2 designation is supposed to be doable from the SA.
