AV-8B / Re: AGM-65E2 Hot Tip
« Last post by AG-51_Razor on July 25, 2021, 02:49:58 PM »
First off, the lock on by the E-2 seeker head seemed like it was happening around closer in, like around 3-4 miles.

Secondly, my opinion of the Sidearm is based on the apparent inconsistant ability to lock onto the Shilka outside of it's leathal 23mm gun range despite the fact that my RWR was screaming at me. I am willing to conceed a slight possibility of operator error on that point. Additionally, once I did get the damn thing to go off the rail and actually hit the Shilka, the damage it inflicted was less than 50% and did not prevent the Shilka from using its radar to direct its 4 23mm guns at me. I think that the Mavric would be a far more effective tool for killing thos bastards provided you knew where to look for them.

found that I was getting a lock more consistantly by uncaging the seeker head BEFORE firing the laser.

Interesting - I'll have to check that out.  Were you getting better that the 5.5 nm range?

I have also formed the opinion that that freaking Sidearm is about freaking useless!!  :angry:

 :Rofl :Rofl :Rofl :Rofl - Is that because of range or warhead size (in your opinion)

Hey Ajax, I was messing around with the Harrier this morning in the PG training map, flying up around WPT 3, the Search and Destroy area, and found that I was getting a lock more consistantly by uncaging the seeker head BEFORE firing the laser. I have also formed the opinion that that freaking Sidearm is about freaking useless!!  :angry:

I watched that on a video today also so maybe I was doing it the long way using other methods (involving TDC Depress, etc.) because I certainly did not do that when LGBing on Thr.

After target is identified and locked, don't forget to press your Waypoint Increment button for a long press (? seconds??) This transfers the target location data to the EHDS/Navigation computer. Apparently this is important for both laser guided weapons as well as GPS guided weapons.  :thumbsup:

About minute 19 is where you'll be ejected


Because of the shot or the mistake of the angels?

That's awesome - I never knew the RIO fired those shots at first.

I remember listening to those comms.  I think someone merged it into "Danger Zone" as well.

AV-8B / Another AWESOME Library of Training Videos
« Last post by AG-51_Razor on June 29, 2021, 04:52:30 PM »
This YouTube site belongs to DeepHack: https://www.youtube.com/c/deephack/featured  Go down a couple of rows to the AV8B and take a look at what he has to offer. I find his tutorials to be very well done and easy to understand. They are also blowing my mind with all the capabilities the Harrier has in it's cockpit!!  :tongue3:
