When I have fun flights, I kinda like jumping into the US jets (and Tornadoes) of the Cold War.  Not too happy with the lack of a CCIP in the @FastCargo & @viper63a F-111s so I have crafted my own.

Here are a few pictures of the end result:

It's not perfect and I don't terribly like the reticle.  But at least this lets me simulate radar bombing with CBUs and slicks.  Yes, back before the modern "smart weapon" era where it's click-point-shoot-boom.

Here's the current code that works in the F-111s' Avionics.INI and I put it at the very bottom:

Once I get something I'm 100% happy and not 80% with, hope it's okay to upload the details here for grins.  Already operationally tested this with cluster bombs and MK 82s as well as a LGB before posting here.

Thoughtfully;

Why would there be a problem in uploading the modification? (other than historical accuracy :biggrin: )

I doubt there'll be any (real*) objections

 

 

* imagined ones, sure :lol:

Oh man, with F-111 you can destroy half of small country. It's probably not allowed to attack countries smaller than 10000 sq km, so where is a problem? .:oops: <-- :pope:.

After a bit of research, I need to eliminate the line going down if I can.  But yeah, the reticle is real.  I just want some means to simulate radar bombing in lieu of TLAR (That Looks About Right).

Just the fact that there is a CCIP, instead of trying to bomb by guessing, which is the case with the F-111.

F-111D had a HUD and CCIP bombing mode. Get it here:

Or here: (Ignore the what if Israeli skin)

I have the F-111D and it's HUD.  So will review the code for the above which I just downloaded.

not want to be rude but what is so special about this ccip ?

No worries, see below @yakarov79!

Yup @EricJ.  If you're trying to take out say a radar site that's lit you up and blocking your path to the target, you really don't wanna be guessin... or if you want to just make one pass at the target, you want a CCIP.  Remember, SF2 doesn't simulate radar bombing nor a WSO.

oh...just asking

cause I thought it was for years already here somewhere. At least I have it for ages in F-111.

      0.9 OPEN BETA FOR F-111 CCIP BY JOSEFK
      View File Here is a wad of avionics.ini mods for the SF2 F-111s by @FastCargo.  Now granted I recommend @viper63a's F-111 add-ons to graft on top of 'em you can get here: https://combatace.com/files/category/630-f-111/ 
      Basically what I've done is add a CCIP or Continuously Calculated Impact Point to the HUD.  The intent is to give you the chance to be a lot more accurate droping Mk 80-series dumb bombs in the F-111.  Especially since  there is no feedback when bombing from the Weapons System Operator/WSO in SF2.  
      Now I realize this isn't realistic for the days of the F-111 when there was absolutely NO helmet-mounted display that could project on top of a cockpit like now in 2020 with the Lightning IIs, Flankers, Fulcrums and arguably other front-line jets like the Super Hornet & Typhoon.  Frankly from the research I've done most of the F-111 variants with the exception of the D likely never got a CCIP.  The fact later models got a PAVE TACK to drop laser-guided bombs was a factor and of course, the F-111 had the Lead Computing Optical Sight that one can't program in SF2.  So this copy-paste job of mine could very well be the next best thing with at least a realistic icon big enough to have some decent risk of circular error.
      Maybe there is better, hence this being an open beta.  I would also like to incorporate terrain following into a bigger avionics upgrade... ;-).
