Master Arm switch?

Not holding down weapon release switch?

Forgot to put the cartridges in the MAU-12 rack?

 

Kinda hard to tell without a track

Viper- gbu 12 laser guided 500lbs not releasing at all. Not on cue not after circle bothe on preset way point as well as on tgp created point.

Not after circle either

  Very likely same thing as here:

You aborted too early. The first cue is the pull-up cue, not the release cue. Just keep flying straight and level and keep the pickle button pressed. A second cue will appear on the HUD and the bomb will drop eventually.

DCS Panavia Tornado (IDS) really needs to be a thing!

I don't have a track either (naturally), but I will say that the GBU12 has been behaving strangely the last few days. As the release cue is coming down the bomb fall line, it kind like, twitches and stutters on its way down which I don't remember it doing before. A couple nights ago it was only releasing about 2/3 times. But then last night, no issues. 

I figured that because I had adjusted my control curves that it was due to little micro adjustments I was putting on the stick, that maybe I wasn't doing before. I'll see if I can get a track today if I see the behavior repeat itself.

@BIGNEWY

Apologies for the longer track file, but the GBU-12 on the Viper seems to be functioning properly, at least for me. 

Master arm on. Laser On. TGP A-G mode, Auto. GBU-12 in Mode 2 for CCRP. No change to any other weapon settings. 

Drop #1: Autopilot set for both steerpoint hold and altitude hold, auto-lase set for 20s. 

Drop #2: Autopilot set for altitude hold only, requiring minor adjustments for course. Auto-lase still at 20s. 

Drop #3: No autopilot set, requiring steering inputs for both path and altitude. Reset auto-lase for the default 8s. 

All drops were successful. I think I must have just been doing something wrong when they weren't releasing before.

I think there is a bug with the GBU-12s and 10s.  I have been having the issue all week and I am experienced with the F-16 (been flying it constantly since 2020 and fly with 3 different viper squadrons) and tonight I spent 3+ hours with some additional experienced buddies trying to figure this out.  I can get the 12s to drop sometimes when I switch modes (A-A then back to A-G).  But I consistently have release issues.  The release cue (the second one after the loft cue), will hit about 2 sec then pause then go back up with no release.  My flight path is perfectly level with the ASL exactly in the center of the flight path marker.  

I have this problem with both the 10s and 12s but not in CCIP mode. I will find a way to shrink the trk file so I can upload it.

Master Arm is on, Laser is on, Laser code set, stable flight path, and even did a DCS repair and remapped my pickle button.

My buddies are not having the same issues, but one did have it happen once while we were troubleshooting mine.

Hi @Riddleboy99

Yes, in this case, we need to see what you're doing, so a track is necessary.

Just be sure to pay attention to what has already been said here. To press and hold until the release, not pressing when the cue hits the mark or releasing the button too soon, etc.

In our internal tests, the Paveway logic seems to be working fine.
