Yes Sir, the first just like we did (actually I screwed up) during training last week.
I’m good though. Totally confident in HARMS procedures.

The coordinates are listed sequentially meaning, the first set are live and on the map and the other three are hidden and not active. Once you kill the first one, the next one on the list will come alive. So were you targeting the first one first?

I plugged in the coordinates from the brief to a new wp. Maybe I was all thumbs.

I managed to get a few practice runs in today before work. Ran the current Caucasus day mission and used Ajax excellent Harm kneeboard reference. Pretty straight forward in setup and employing both PB modes. But for the life of me I could not get the SA2s to light up.  Maybe wait a little longer before launching next time.

The first question that comes to my mind is, what was the range to the Fansong radar unit? Unless you made some changes to the mission, I believe that waypoint 2 is set out at the SAM engagement ring, which is probably 25-27 miles short of the actual SAM site. If you used that waypoint to feed the PB mode with a position for the Fansong, you were WAY off! I only know this because I did the exact same thing for my first shot at trying out the new PB mode.   :Rofl

Probably has to do with the triggers

I think you're on to something there Thud. It should definitely involve some kind of teamwork and coordination at least.  :thumbsup:

I was thinking the HARM strategy should be a dedicated Shooter in PB mode with everyone else ready in TOO MODE just in case.

[/quote]It's possible the 15 lit up once the HARM got close because it will try to shoot it down.  The range ring for the 15 is tighter than the 6.

Nope.  watched the RWR the whole time on the subsequent trials just to see if it did and it never lit (at least that the rwr picked up.  I even moved the waypoint from directly near it to the other end of the airfield.  Still hit it almost directly.  The SA6 lit up and was hit as you would expect, the second missile was still 10 miles away so the rwr was blank the whole time until impact.  I think what I will try is place the 15 by itself, not ever go into it rings and watch.  Ill keep the waypoint a distance from it and see.
