Paveway Mini-Toss? F-111 maneuver

Recommended Posts

Found this article about F-111 GBU usage, and I tried to replicate it in SF2 without luck, bombs lose the laser track and miss. Anyone know If is possible to replicate this maneuver in SF2 and how to properly do it in the game?

This was also bread and butter for the USAF Block 40/42 F-16C community with the LANTIRN system and Paveway III bombs. F-16 tactic was to toss the LGB from low level and then turn 90 degrees to laser the target. Unfortunately it doesn't work in SF2 very well. Try less aggressive maneuvering and with the GBU-24

You could copy this and paste this in your data ini down in the area where counter measures and ecm are located at,, also works in B-52 and A-6,, you can also dial back the Camera FOV= 0.500000 or what ever you like

Ah Ok, I need to open the bay. Any way to increase the Zoom?

I know I backed it off to see hits better.

You can't do anything with the Laser Designator as it just shows the target in the TV screen, that's it. It has no functionality. It does however zoom in when you're in range but you don't control that either, it's automatic

Long time no see,, I ripped the above out of the F15E,, plus I put the avionics out of the A-7k,, into the B-52 ,,F-111G ,, the A-6 ,B-1 and the F-105G with out the TV for realism sake ,, with the B-52 I load up with dumb bombs and a couple LGBs so the TV will lock on to the target ,, mine you I'm bombing from 30,000 ft I can use the ccip or radar depending on what model I'm flying ,,  but you have to have some kind of sight to line up on the waypoint or you aren't going to hit anything with dumb bombs

I usually just fly with aircraft that has a TV screen or MFD with a display (more of the modern jets nowadays, when I fly though. But I've been more lurking now as I just don't have much motivation to do anything. Besides I'm working on some things outside of here so I'm focused on that too.

That's how it is done at 30,000ft,, can watch a few hits on the TV until lock is lost. but you have to have an LGB on board Mavericks don't work well

I'm back here because of the limitation of my computer,, I did manage to upload a PT 109  I reworked for SH-4 at Subsim.com and I run that a bit,, I was working on Falcon 4 till my game box crapped out,, I really miss IL-2 1946 ,,, but we have the best fleet of B-52s here at Strike Fighters than any where in the game world

I see, I usually level bomb around 10,000ft or so, or around that altitude, though I do it in a Super Hornet vs. a B-52 as well.

You edit this little jewel into your aircraft DATA ini and your wing and flight will stay at a set altitude and will not dive at target when you order them to attack your target 

 

[LevelBombAI]                                                                  goes in toward the top under flight control/commands you can change values this came out of the B-52D
ReleaseAlt=9144.0
ReleaseCount=27
ReleaseInterval=0.1
