Escort Task

Recommended Posts

I tried to google and search this to find a solution before this post.

 

I can't get the escort task to work properly. The F15c escort starts at 18 thousand feet and slowly loses altitude until one of them hits the ground. Then the other skims the ground following the tanker around. I want them to follow up at the same altitude.

 

I need help figuring out if its a bug or if i need to change some parameters around.

 

Had an image up but my hosting provider is not allowing it to work here.

All those values are relative to where the tanker is. I'd think that a positive number for the elevation would make it be higher, not lower. Try setting it to 0 and see if that works for you.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

Yep...your F-15 is trying to fly 18,000 above the aircraft it's escorting at 270kts ground speed...they don't know better than to try to maintain this position so they're stalling.

 

Distance is left/right spacing with a positive or negative value, elevation is above/below with a positive or negative value, interval is fwd/aft if memory serves.

 

Make sure the aircraft being escorted is flying within acceptable parameters for the A/C doing the escorting or they'll either crash or fly all over the place like crazy people trying to stay in slot.

 

In the case of this specific example, you should be good to go if you decrease the elevation value so that they're only flying a couple hundred feet above or below your tanker.
