ACMI pod too far back on the pylon?

I believe the pylon itself it too short, and when users reported it being too far forward, they simply moved it back, when reality it was in the correct position originally, but the pylon itself is too short.

Ah...had not thought of that but I think your right.

Best shot I could find and a slightly different pod,

But you can see it does hang back pretty far just like ours, as it should but in game it seems exaggerated because the launcher is too short.

Open In Model Viewer, Set to Top View, Take a Screenshot,

Draw a Line from tip to tip of Wintip LAUs,

 

Do the Same for a F-5E 3 View Schematic.

Seems pretty on the money to me but I don't know if this is a super

reliable picture hard to find one without sidewinders already on the

pylons. The Length actually seems right when you compare them to

the wing and other pylons

Ok yeah its definitely too short if you look at the front tips they are about as forward as where the LEX starts where as in our model they don't even come as far as the wing root.

So the Original placement of the pod was correct on release but the front tips of the pylons are too far back

It's the AIS pod that's too long, the aircraft is fine.

I Measured the AIS Pod, it's Correct.

 

T50 should be 142 inches long from tip to end.

 

So placing 2 helpers in empty 3Ds Scene spaced 142 inches apart and merging to the T50's edm in model viewer shows it's 142.

 

I think the F-5E's Wingtip Launchers Are Actually Too Short on the Front End.

 

The T50's were Likely Placed Correctly Originally, But the Front of the LAU's are too short.

Yeah you're right it is. What is interesting, and what made me think differently, is that there are also issues with the AIS pod on the A-10C (clipping through the ailerons with air brakes extended).

 

I wonder if the A-10 has a similar issue then?

The AIS Pod on the A-10C Rack is actually a twidge too far back,

 

It's apparent in Operational Pix, the spikes should be past the end of the LAU Tip,

On the DCS A-10C, they are not, so it's like 6 inches off if I had to estimate, Prolly more.

 

The Tip of the LAU should Line up with the Edge of the Black Paint.

For the A-10C Mounting, It's also reported.

 

The F-5E's Problem is the LAU's are Too Short.

 

The Initial Position was correct.

Necro bump, is this ever going to get fixed? Literally been almost a year...

 

It's not even in bug section and noone is fixing the bugs reported there so don't get your hopes up.

 

I am disgusted by this, all those betas and early accesses yet we still have numerous bugs present and reported a LONG time ago.. Is there even single developer that actually cares about their products or they just jump on other project to squeeze more money and then leave it unfinished?

 

I am not very impressed Belsimtek.. RWR, Fuel tanks, Gun dispersion, dark hud screen etc...

This drives me crazy, it’s such a jarring graphical error in an otherwise beautiful sim. And if you want to load the aircraft with an authentic aggressor loadout like I do, you get to stare at it the whole time.

 

Idk the pod itself is not functional it’s purely asthetic, so imho least they can do is make it look correct. Not trying to be criticizing just frustrated. Same feelings on the mig21s fuel tanks
