  • Corrected issue with max-G on HUD recorded with very high numbers from initialization on ground

  • Hi folks,
    This warning only applies to the new 2.5.3 release in OpenBeta:
    It seems a bug slipped by me and if you try to do a full alignment with the INS fully unaligned the system won't engage.

    The bug is in the magvar input. It won't accept any value at all and thus INS alignment cannot start.

    To solve it, go to Special Options and select the SAVED HEADING ONLY option. This options still requires that you perform an INS alignment, but it will save all required information into the INS and thus the bug will be bypassed.

    Then you can perform either a full alignment or a SHDG alignment as you see fit. Check the pocket guide for more information on INS alignment.

    I'll advise when the bug is squashed.


  •  Some people cannot believe how the ALR-67(v) RWR shows radar emitters on the display.Here's a copy of the doc forwarded to us that describes the threat bands. Still, this is a work in progress so changes can and will be made, since this document relates to the F-18 and unfortunately different aircrafts that use the same device can have different displays.

____________________________________________________________________________________

Update August 28, 2018:

  • The ALR-67(v) RWR is being updated.

    Here are the following changes:
    1. The Azimuth Display (AD) has changed.
    2. Emitters are now being discriminated into three categories: Non-Critical (SAFE), Critical (Threats) and Lethal (Attacking Threats).
    3. How the emitters are displayed in the AD depends on their category.
    4. Two filters are being implemented: Normal and Priority contacts. Limited Display.
    Normal (N) = All detected emitters (up to 16) will be shown on the AD.
    Priority (P) = Only Critical and Lethal threats will be shown.
    Limited = When selected only the first 6 Non-Critical emitters will be shown.
    5. HUD will show only Critical and Lethal threats to prevent cluttering.
    6. AD center will display RWR status.
    7. Sounds will be improved.
