Left and Right Footwells. All switches are springloaded to OFF position but held in position with solenoid to enable automatic disengagement when applicable. In air-to-ground mode up and down moves the designator and forward designates. Button used to command pilot lockon mode of AWG Also used to disengage autopilot while in ACL.
Also used to disengage APC when in use. Switch used to control exterior lights. OFF disable all exterior lights and increases approach light intensity. ON enables all exterior lights and dims approach lights. The main throttle quadrant contains the two main-engine throttle controls, the flap lever and manual wing-sweep handle in addition to the HOTAS controls on the throttles themselves.
The sideways movements of the throttles are not spring loaded, this is so the pilot can have the throttle resting at MIL power for catapult launches and prevents accidental spool down of the engines. A friction lever for selection of desired throttle movement friction is located on the left side of the throttle quadrant, beneath the flap lever. The flap lever has a stepless range of motion between up and down and has two emergency positions, one emergency up and one emergency down.
Both emergency positions have detents, the lever needs to be moved outboards to continue movement into these positions. Emergency up forces the flaps up, overriding the normal flap logic. Emergency down is non-functional. The handle-top is extended for manual operation. For more information see Emergency Mode. It is used to manually add hydraulic pressure for brake operation with gear handle in the down position or for refueling probe operation in case of a failure in the hydraulic system.
Allows fuel dump when speed brakes are retracted, afterburner off and weight off wheels. Horizontal stabilizer position indicators, shows position of left and right stabilizer surfaces, marked L or R respectively. Not currently used in DCS. Indicates weight on wheels when moved down by solenoid.DCS Store. The FC Fighting Falconoften called the Viperis a single-engine multi-role fighter jet airplane. Despite the "F" fighter designation, it is designed for both air-to-air and air-to-ground missions and can use an array of weapons and sensors; built into the Viper is a 20mm cannon as well as a multifunction radar.
The Fighting Falcon's hands on throttle and stick HOTAS system is designed to allow the pilot to manipulate important avionics functions without releasing the hands from the throttle or control stick. This section will provide a summarized description of all HOTAS controls - detailed functionality will be described in other appropriate sections.
The stick is mostly stationary and uses pressure sensitivity to be manipulated; it does, however, move a small physical distance to give tactile movement response to the pilot. The throttle for the F is mounted on the left side, thought it is not rail-mounted to the side of the fuselage as its appearance would suggest.
Instead the throttle pivots on its mounted location to the panel. The FC has multiple flight control surfaces for maneuvering the aircraft. It has a "fly-by-wire" FBW system, which, opposed to a traditional mechanical or "direct" control system, the inputs given by the cockpit controls are inputted to a computer which then decides what controls to move in order to accomplish the desired maneuver.
The FLCS also moves surfaces as a function of the angle of attack to provide the best control. The control stick controls the stabilators, ailerons, and rudder and the rudder pedals control the rudder. The control stick mainly focuses on using force sensing for feedback, not to be confused for force feedback. The speedbrake is a set of four retractable flaps on the back of the aircraft on either side of the engine, used to provide drag to decelerate faster.
It is activated via the speed brake switch on the throttle. There are three positions - aft is momentary, the others are permanent. With weight off wheels, it is disengaged. It automatically engages upon there being weight on wheels. NWS is disengaged manually via the paddle switch on the stick. The hands on throttle and stick HOTAS system of the aircraft is also used for manipulating these systems, which is detailed in its own section and the sections relevant to specific HOTAS uses.
The MFDs can display various software pages to manipulate the aircraft's avionics. These three pages always occupy the bottom center three pushbutton areas. In addition to these, a universal declutter DCLT button is provided, which will declutter the symbology depending on the page, and a SWAP button, which simply swaps the two MFD's quick access pages and selected page.
Selecting any of the three pushbuttons once they have already been selected prompts the main page menu. Any page can then be selected and will be filled at that pushbutton. That page can then be selected by either pressing the corresponding pushbutton or using the Display Management Switch DMS on the stick, and it will be highlighted.
The F avionics display most radar target data as "trackfiles" - single objects in the air the computer determines to exist based on the return of one or more raw radar contacts. Trackfiles are represented by a triangle symbol, with a stem coming out of one corner of the trackfile to indicate its track velocity across the ground.
Underneath the trackfile is displayed its altitude in thousands of feet. The Fire Control Radar page is presented in an azimuth over range format with the aircraft at the bottom center of the display.
The range axis is displayed in a vertical format, where higher range is higher on the physical MFD screen. Range While Search RWS provides the largest scan volume selection available and is designed for surveillance of a large area. Situational Awareness Mode SAM is a Range While Search function which allows for a contact to be designated, which will then center the scan azimuth on it and display it as a trackfile as opposed to a raw contact.
It was only recently unsealed after Tishchenko was extradited from Georgia the country. The original indictment, provided to Polygon by the U.
United States of America vs. The seller apparently knew this, and stated that they were unwilling and unable to ship the items outside of the country. Tishchenko allegedly found a willing co-conspirator among the community on the DCS forums. That means Kenneth Edward Sullivan, a Texan, now has his own row to hoe.
For its part, Eagle Dynamics is flatly denying that this has anything to do with its line of business.
Employee of flight sim developer arrested for attempting to smuggle jet fighter manuals
The company is known for hardcore flight simulations that stress realism. For instance, many feel that the best way to learn how to fly the A Warthog tank killer, as portrayed in DCS Warthog AC, is the get a former pilot to teach you. Meanwhile, the French air force was recently spotted using DCS World to train pilots of its Mirage multirole fighter. Many consider it the spiritual successor to the legendary Falcon 4.

Animal Crossing fans are building great diving spots for the summer update By Patricia Hernandez.The F-4 Phantom II is considered one of the greatest and most versatile jet fighters for its time.
Conceived during peacetime, it served as an interceptor, strike and reconnaissance aircraft, and was the second most produced jet fighter after the North American F Sabre.
The Phantom II was one of the largest postwar programs with a total 5, aircraft constructed — 5, built by the McDonnell Corporation and under license, by Mitsubishi Aircraft in Japan. It was first in many areas of aerospace engineering innovations that would go on to break fifteen world aviation performance records.
The Phantom II was the first fighter aircraft to be completely reliant on its own radar and detection systems. The Digital Modular Avionics System DMAS is an integrated navigation and weapon delivery system installed to enhance the all-weather capability of the aircraft.
In addition, the DMAS provides a self-contained, automatic computer approach-to-landing-mode. This modification is also able to use a guided bomb GBUHome Discussions Workshop Market Broadcasts.

When I select bombs or rockets and press the trigger, nothing happens. Am I doint something wrong or is it just a bug and is there any fix? Last edited by AlphaYarak ; 5 Oct, pm.

Author - Plastic. This mod enables the smoke-winders on the FC. They work across all the AA pylons in a range of colours. Thanks to Razor97 whose Thunderbird's Smoke Mod started me off. If you install the mod on a different version of the game you may experience some unusual problems.
Check user files for updates. You install this mod at your own risk. Arm Pylons 1,2,3 7,8 or 9 with smoke-winders in the mission editor. You can fit the smoke-winders in any combination you wish and mix with other weapons. Arm by flipping the Master Arm. You will get a message telling you on which Pylons the sidewinders are fitted. Press the "Smoke Toggle" button on your joystick. You will get a message with each press confirming the smoke state.
Found a typo?Eagle Dynamics has chosen an F block and upgrade that provides us with some of the greatest flexibility possible giving us one of the most capable Fs around and also matching us up with an aircraft that — though representing the USAF Air National Guard standard of F also matches that of multiple NATO allies. So what is Eagle Dynamics building? Fairly recent! In parallel with the Hornet, we already have a sub-team working on the Viper that includes programmers who have completed their Hornet tasks.
Using much of what we learned with the Hornet, progress has been good, and is in no way slowing down Hornet completion. Because its a big project, just as the Hornet is, there will be a phased release with certain features coming during early access and other more complex features emerging later.
The question is always still, when is this going to happen and when will we see more? Like Liked by 1 person. Checking with a few resources around the web, it appears that the FC Block 40 and Block 50 do have the ability to carry the AGM, however, in US service they apparently do not on a regular basis. Will be interesting to see if we get a purely USAF Viper or if they decide to add weapons used by other services. Like Like. So it would be nice if they still gave the F the ability to carry it in-game as it could in real life.
