Just a few days since the last video from Matt Wagner covering new HARM modes for the F-16C, now we have new modes being introduced for the F/A-18C too. Let’s have a look!
The new modes detailed
There’s quite a bit of depth in the simulation of these systems as the two new modes are detailed. Pre-Briefed (PB) let’s you attack pre-designated radar types using coordinates and either aircraft or missile lofting (i.e. you point the nose high giving the HARM a range boost). Then there’s the Pull Back sub-mode for the Self Protect (SP) mode which is basically an override to SP mode on what happens with the aircraft when locked onto by a radar.
Matt Wagner explains all of the details in the latest video. The video description also includes a reference to all of the different SAM types and their corresponding numbers. It also won’t take much for everyone to notice that the video features the latest look at the new clouds for DCS World that includes a localized rainstorm.
