JDAM Accuracy

Recommended Posts

I use JDAMs a lot, AG with the hornet is my go to mission, but as of late I have been having major issues with JDAM accuracy. I do both PP and with TOO/TPOD. Manuallu entering coords gives the best results, but its a gamble with the TPOD.

 

 

 

Some are minor misses, which would be fine if there was a functional damage model, but frequently it's not close enough to do any good even if there was splash damage.

 

 

Massive waste of time when the weapon has such a high chance of missing the target.

Please attach a track replay we will take a look.

 

We do have a JDAM issue reported already but I would like to confirm it is the same issue

 

thank you

Hi Pike. This is where I aim with Gbu38 in TOO mode + A-track to get the best results (lowest central visible point of target). If I use P-track I get relatively bad results.

Note in this video the conditions are optimum (no wind/turbulence, tank platoon is set to not disperse under fire and shows rear aspect).

It's not always a direct hit but if not, it at least deals damage.

I will try to find the track file from yesterday, but im not sure which it is and im likely not going to watch through them to find out.

 

 

 

I will add that today i have dropped about 32 JDAMs and all worked as I would have expected.

 

 

If i cant find the previous file I will attach one the next time things dont seem right.

 

 

Any chance it is server specific? I tend to spend most of my time on one server, I've not been on that one today.

The issue we have reported is usually targets that have a higher than average elevation above sea level. If you are seeing misses with targets above sea level it is most likley related and reported already.

 

thank you
