  1. I experience the same problem since OB Open Beta (8-JUN-2022).
  2. Sorry for hijacking this thread, but what does the abbreviation "SAS" actually stand for? Is it the same as in the A-10, i.e. "Stability Augmentation System"?
  3. I also use Thrustmaster T Flight pedals and face the exact same difficulties even after greasing. In comparison it wasn't that much of a problem when I was flying the UH-H1 Huey. What I'm experimenting with now is applying curves and decreasing saturation in DCS's axis tuning menu and see how that goes.
  4. Thanks, it's always interesting to get first hand details like this. I also read in IRL you would only get range for A/A TACAN from KC-135 and the bearing is just a setting in the mission editor to make life easier in the game. However at the moment we don't seem to get the range and only the bearing option works in the current open beta which indeed looks like a bug to me.
  5. Thanks for the replies! I hope this will be fixed in one of the next updates.
  6. Hello, Before yesterday's DCS update tankers were transmitting bearing and range when input in the F/A-18C's TACAN UFC. Today I noticed that I only get the bearing but no range information. I know that IRL tankers would only transmit the range via TACAN (but you can activate "BEARING" in the mission editor when the tanker activates the TACAN). I have tested it with the vanilla mission "Persian Gulf FA-18C Aerial Refueling" and set TACAN to "1X" with the "AA" option enabled. Is this behavior a bug? Does anyone else notice this? Best regards and happy holidays!
  7. Wow, this is beautiful! Grüezi zäme!
  8. Haha, same, I'm so afraid of the wires that I never even dared come close to them
  9. That's actually a good point that makes me believe it's in a bugged state at the moment. If only a real F/A-18 pilot could confirm this, then my mind would be at peace. I'm looking at you, @Mover
  10. Thanks, I didn't know that either!
  11. Hi, Until recently I didn't even know what a helicopter's WSPS is and I only learned of its existence when it was mentioned in one of Casmo's Apache videos. Wikipedia: "The Wire Strike Protection System (WSPS) is a mechanical wire cutter designed to mitigate the risk of wire strikes whilst flying helicopters at low-level": Looks like these things cut through wires like butter. Apparently the Apache has installed multiple cable cutters: (from: https://www.reddit.com/r/EngineeringPorn/comments/l3n720/wirestrike_protection_system_wsps_cable_cutter_in/, I think there is also an additional one installed directly on the gun mount) Although I doubt there will be functioning cable cutters implemented in DCS I still find it interesting to find out and learn about this kind of stuff Cheers!
