PC Pilot missions

I don't know how many A-10C fans have tried the series of training missions in the PC Pilot magazine. I have found them excellent for a less than proficient pilot. The JTAC mission in this month's issue is particularly good, as using the JTAC has until now always been a bit of a mystery.:)

A lot of the JTAC-specific tutorials forget to explain that you need to know more than just how to communicate with JTAC. You have to know and understand:

 

-how to input data into the CDU and/or UFC + MFD CDU repeater

-how to read and use the TAD to find, designate, and share targets

-how to use your weapons systems to tie the above together to make a kill

 

Search for youtube videos that cover these other topics in-depth to get the most complete understanding of how the systems all work together.

yeah just figured out how to mark the red triangle on the TAD as a mark point and use the mark instead of FPLAN. that was helpful.

 

need to understand how to plug in the coords into the CDU though. that would help too. make it a WP
