Kneeboard and briefing frequencies are not usable


Recommended Posts

Hey, first thanks to SorelRo for creating some content for the F-5! It's one of my favorite modules and I was really missing a campaign for it.

 

I am a bit baffled about the frequencies given though:

- The ATC freq is outside the range usable by the F-5 radio, so you have to look at the map to get the one you can actually tune to.

- The RSBN freq is AFAIK useless for the F-5, isn't it?

 

So I wonder how much was this tested, how come it didn't come up? Or am I missing something and those frequencies are usable somehow?

When I made this campaign, I tried to avoid radio gymnastics, since the F-5 doesn't have a radio as capable as F-18 or F-16, pretty much all the campaign can be done without having to change the radio, except for talking to the ATC on the occasion you change the airports and you need to talk to the ATC. In 1.3 where I introduced TACAN I should have changed the kneeboards to represent that, unfortunately I have run out of time adjusting the weather and the clouds, so the kneeboards will get fixed at a next update. I don't think it takes away a whole lot from the playability of the campaign , but I know they will need to be adjusted. 

 

Cheers,

Thanks for replying!

Glad to know they will be fixed. I agree it's not a huge issue, more like a kind of small immersion breaker.

 

I didn't realise we can use TACAN! So is it channel 28 for Krymsk?

It gets introduced during the campaign as a mobile TACAN as supplies make it to Krymsk, when the weather turns for the worst. I'm not going to spoil it and tell you at what mission, but it is marked in the briefings.
