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.

You sure on those temps input into the CDU?

 

You put 26 for temps for all of the altitude blocks? Isn't the OAT fluctuating between +1 and -3 degrees and isn't that input into the LASTE as you pass the relevant altitude?

 

IIRC, it's approximately a decrease of 1.98 degrees C every 1000ft or so in altitude.

 

Ground level would have a temp of 26 degrees C

9000 ft wouldn't have a temp of 26 degrees C

24,000 ft wouldn't have a temp of 26 degrees C

 

26 doesn't sound right. Would you just make a note of the temps as you climb climb to altitude.

Its 26°C for every layer but you maybe right. Maybe I have to check CDU on reaching those altitudes as there is no source of information to vet your claim.

ahhhhh to much waste of time :D just grab 2x3 GBU-12 and u are all set :D

 

yes, but to put those guidance kits means you're keeping a huge arsenal of tritonal at home for no good use.

My guess (educated, but totally unaware of how A-10 crews do this stuff,) would be that they would use the day's meteorological forecasts to determine winds and temperatures aloft. The temperature lapse rate depends on the day, and is only 2C per 1000ft on a "standard day." I do agree that it would make no sense to input 26C for each "layer."
