Maverick/LGB video feeds?

Recommended Posts

I've seen a lot of real world USAF videos, where a deployed LGB or AGM-65 broadcasts video from the seeker head to an MFD until it hits the target, giving the pilot an idea of the weapon's status. However, I can't seem to find how to enable that in A-10C...is it implemented, and if so, how does one set it up for that?

you sure about that? real life A-10 vids firing mavericks get a lock then a static indicating the missile has left its rail.

AWAITING ED NEW DAMAGE MODEL IMPLEMENTATION FOR WW2 BIRDS

 

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

Had the same question myself a few years back. Apparently, when testing mavericks, a datalink (or something capable of sending the video after launch) can be added. Whatever equptment that might be is not a feature of normal mavericks.

 

I have no idea about laser guided bombs, but I'd imagine that the "image" the seeker sees wouldn't be something a person could make much sense of.

I'd love to see the video in question!

You might be thinking of pictures from Desert Storm of Walleye bombs which were TV guided. Modern day pictures are from targeting pods etc on the actual aircraft.

Hrmm ... I wonder, if we could make a mod for this effect ...

Here's an example of what they're talking about. I have no clue about IRL A-10C's but it would be neat to have this added as a "weapon camera view" (similar to F6) in the future!

 

That video seems to me to be from testing. You can see the a vehicle towing the target.

AFAIK, there are only three US weapons that send video all the way to impact. AGM-62 Walleye, GBU-15 and AGM-130 (GBU-15 with rocket motor) All other do not.

The video is not to give the pilot or the WSO status of the weapon, but to allow them to control it.

To whom it may concern,

I am an idiot, unfortunately for the world, I have a internet connection and a fondness for beer....apologies for that.

Thank you for you patience.

 

 

Many people don't want the truth, they want constant reassurance that whatever misconception/fallacies they believe in are true..

mvsgas, as the intro to your video says, that is from a AGM-130, which I beleive can be steered mid flight by the crew, which is why it provides video feedback:

I don't think the A-10 are fitted to use this weapon system.

 

LOL, if you read my post you can see I already stated that and I never said the A-10 could carry any of them. GBU-15/AGM-130 is only carried by F-15E currently. AGM-62 have been out of service for a long time.

I don't thrust wiki as a source of information, here is some weapons info from USAF weapons file 276, page 2-12 and 2-13

Nomenclature: AGM-130 Name: Powered Standoff Weapon

Description

Derived from the GBU-15, it has since been extensively modified to an advanced, precision

guided weapon used against high value fixed targets. It features Inertial Navigations

System/Global Positioning System (INS/GPS), man-in-the-loop capabilities and has a

propulsion section enabling enhanched standoff capability. There are two versions of the

weapon; the AGM-130A model utilizes the MK-84 warhead and the AGM-130C model utilizes

the BLU-109 penetration warhead. Both versions have advanced control sections and new

Switchable Data Links (SDL) for horizontal target attack profiles. There are two improved

guidance sections for day and night extended capability; Television Guided Section (TVGS)

and Improved Modular Infared Sensor (IMIRS). A new test system, AN/GJM-64 tests all GBU-15 and AGM 130 configurations completely menu driven featuring minimal manual operator

intervention. The software can be readily modified to facilitate testing/updating of new weapon

versions, enhancements, improvements and modifications.
