Flying Fear the Bones Mission 5, and while setting up for some bandits, can’t get my TID to show target info. What have I done wrong? HUD is in A/A mode, Master Arm on, AIM-54 selected. It’s 2 against 8 in the dark, and I’d really like to reduce these bad dudes before the merge. Thanks
That’s an odd screen. Full INS Alignment? Well wait, of course you did. I got nothing. Night obviously makes no difference with these things. But I do know that it is something simple. I relearned the M2000 and have forgotten much of last month’s “mastery” of the Tomcat.
That’s what I’m thinking. We had a slow start off the boat, because finding a crew to shoot us in the dark was a cluster. We taxied around the dark deck begging for a launch. It was like the yellow shirts conspired against us.
Once off the boat, everything is even more dark. No it’s black. As one guy said on coms. “It’s like flying inside a basketball.” We get through the departure profile and then make it to WP 1. Then we are sent to lock up a pair of MiGs coming toward us, but then thy go cold. So we are sent back to anchor over WP1 again and hear a Hornet flight being vectored to attack a Russian DD. A couple of popup groups go after the Hornets and we are sent to intercept. That’s when I notice the TID. At times like this, I wish that I knew how to just have Jester do the shooting. Can he can do that? Will study some tonight.
