Description

Now it is about 10 second.
IRL it is about 0.1 seconds. Moreover, Ka's FCS have "double fire" mode, when 2 missiles can be launched with very small delay to one target.

Proof - DCS: Black Shark.

It also doesn't lock up a target at the press of a button in RL either. As long as a single target must stay locked for the missile to hit it (ie, not fire and forget), zero reload is fine. However, If the missiles continue to be fire and forget, than an enforced reload time is required to simulate having to remain locked onto a target to hit it.

That's the reason why the reloadtime is set to 10 secs. We want to avoid people doing tab lock and fire the missile in one row at any target. As long as there is no FCS implemented for the chopper I see no reason to remove it.

Is there a possibility to make them SACLOS then? Maybe with camera target locking feature, simulating the Ka-52 Shkval automated TV-lock system.

Updated by Floydii over 4 years ago

pirate the TOW scripts with a small spiralling behaviour to simulate the vikhr's rather unique steering mechanism.

Camera locking on ALL the Gunships probably wouldn't be a bad addition.

Surely since it is gunner operated in the Ka-52, and we have no Ka-50, having it SACLOS is a fine compromise till the proper Vikhr FCS is made, if/when that is.

Updated by VKing over 4 years ago

The problem is that the gunner's traverse on the Ka-52 is far too narrow, as it's slaved to the gun. The traverse on the Shkval system, used to guide the missiles, is significantly wider.
Thus without a scripted FCS solution, having the missiles as is as SACLOS would be severly nerfing the targeting and engagement capabilities of the Ka-52.
