I can usually sort this myself but this one has me right now…
I do AR all the time, and in the F14B (just got the A and haven’t had time). On the Syria map, In the Tomcat the TACAN, when set to the tanker, always points to the carrier. Odd. Here’s the details:
- KC130, TACAN Ch1X. Correct unit in the ME box (Advanced WP action)
- F14B/Client. Tell Jester to set the TACAN to TEXACO11, then AA mode (tried both AA and Transmit mode). Jump in the back and check that it is in fact set to 1X (not that I don’t trust him).
- Carrier TACAN 72X
Needle/DME still point to the carrier, where I launched. Seems to only be with the F14B. Now, this is in a mission I’ve built with other stuff going on but I’ve double/tripled checked all the TACAN settings.
EDIT: When I put a Hornet in there (another Client) it works as designed.
Okay, think I’ve found the issue: I’m using VAICOM Pro and telling Jester to tune aTACAN, and he is, but he’s not changing the pilots TACAN, only his. What good is he?
Carry on…I’ll not delete this as maybe someone else might make the same error.
