A-10C Dual Trigger


Recommended Posts

It is my understanding that the trigger on the Warthog is dual stage. How will they implement that action if your trigger is not dual stage capable? My guess is the thumb button (missle luanch button for most people I'm guessing) will pull double duty. Pressed by itself it will do one thing (whatever that is I don't know much about A-10C at all) and with the trigger pressed it will do another. The trigger will act as a modifier. Why does the Warthog have a dual trigger anyway, whats its purpose, and why do they keep giving Will Ferrell work? His movies are............... just terrible (Bewitched worst movie ever, Anchor Man, Ricky Bobby).

The first stage of the trigger enables the autopilot stability function (holds the aim point on the ground), second stage fires the gun. And with LGBs first stage fires the laser if you want to override the auto lase.

 

Most NATO (US & UK at least) have two stage trigger with similar functionality.

Heyyy, finally a use for the dual trigger on the G940. I'd been wondering why the heck it had one. Eddie, thanks for the info!

 

I've had the g940 for over a month now, and I never knew it had a dual trigger :doh:

 

Thank you too for the info :D

I've got 99 problems but my Ekran ain't one

the A10 has an SAS with PAC1 and PAC2 which will be indicated on the HUD once active. PAC1 stiffens up the stick allowing for more precise aiming, PAC2 "locks the plane into position" and the gun fires. No steering is available during PAC2. You need to release it again in order to pull up, turn, etc.

 

Cheers
