FC3 - can't fire missiles?


Recommended Posts

I just DL'd FC3 in hopes of some more 'lax' flying enviroment...

 

well I'm having a problem firing a missile! I'm going to DL the training stuff tonight sooo....

 

I pick A2A radar (press 2)

slew to a target and attempt to lock (enter) I don't think it's working right thought lol

once it looks like i'm in range, press weapon release

nothing happens!

 

lol?

Try holding the button until missile launch.

 

Easiest with F-15C, Russian fighters won't let you launch if they don't like the situation.

ok, that did the trick...

 

when you lock onto a target, from RWS (it looks like RWS) shouldn't it go to a TWR or STT though?

 

and we are putting FC3 stuff on here, or to Lock-on area?

Once you lock on the target

Press and hold weapon release button for at least 2 second

In a Russian fighter, launch the missile after the "LA" symbol appear

 

ok, that did the trick...

go to ED's FC training video, to learn more about operate F-15C's radar

pretty useful :)

Locking in RWS will go to STT

 

Locking in TWS will just add the target as a primary or secondary track.

The fire control system in trying to tell you to close the distance with the target because you're not in range yet. I realize in arcade-type games if you want to launch a "guided missile" you just press the button any time, but that's not how it happen in real aircraft. This is probably a good thing considering the $500,000/per unit cost of a modern guided missile.
