Radar Scan Elevation locked in RWS after using TWS


Recommended Posts



I am unable to change the elevation in RWS after using TWS AUTO/MAN. Switching back to TWS I can adjust the elevation again in MAN, however it's still stuck in RWS.


The track doesn't show two MiGs that are spawned via script but shows the bug correctly for me.

Similar issue. Locked a target with A/A Radar. Used TWS Auto Mode. Lost lock at some point in turn. No longer could use radar elevation in A/A Radar modes. Still had radar tilt function in surface modes. 


Unable to upload Track file as it is 57.9 MB. Track: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1f2v0tkUu6RNEJRls--NTHmax5yvxRH-N/view?usp=sharing


Bug encountered shortly after locking C-130


Unsure how well this will sync up but I used TacView to get a time for the bug. Mission time shows 2011-06-01 at about 11:31:00 to 11:35:00 for when the bug first appeared


Additionally at the end of that track file, I tried the FCS BIT test to see if that bug was still around. But I'll make another post for that.

I have the exact same problem using TWS AUTO.  if i can't move elevation, i try everything (lock blank space, use ACM modes Auto Ack modes, etc) then after a while the elevation will go to -99 and stay there.


No controller binding conflict, and keyboard commands cannot rectify the problem instead of using axis.


I have a sneaking suspicion it has something to do with AUTO mode in TWS.

Same issue.

1. Steps to reproduce: RWS -> TWS -> TWS Auto

Radar elevation control is no longer operable, it is ok since we're in auto mode.

2. Switch to TWS MAN. Radar elevation can now be operable again.

3. Switch to RWS. Radar elevation control is lost again.

4. Back to TWS. Same. Note, that Auto mode is enabled again.

5. Repeat step 2 and so on.

I know this is a bug.

But, until this is resolved do this:

select amraam/sparrow mode, press and release designate on an empty space on the radar format. While the radar is doing the narrow search, change weapon mode to amraam/sparrow/sidewinder.


You will now have regained control of elevation in RWS.
