a couple of MIG-29s questions


Recommended Posts

I have a couple of MIG-29s questions:

 

  1. On the vertical speed indicator both on the right side of the HUD [when on final and gear is down] and the cockpit gauge, are the numbers representing metres a second?
  2. If a target dot on the HUD is high, medium or low is it representing where I should be looking relative to my altitude or is it representing the relative distance to my plane [high being far and low being close]?

Thank you.

1) Yes.

2) Target mark high is far away, target dot low is close. There is no huge reason for this to indicate some direction you should be looking since this radar mode is for BVR - Beyond Visual Range. You won't see anything even when looking in the right direction, and either way it's your computers and radars that will do the weapon guidance :) (Well, aside from when transitioning to WVR combat, but you'd get the same effect through locking the target)

Thank you for your response.

Using IRST, is it also indicating far/close?
