Intercom Control Panel Relevant?

Yes, during rearm and refuel it becomes nessesary to set to INT to communicate with ground crew.

 

Any other uses? VHF/FM/HF are to be ignored?

This DOES have an effect- but you can also just leave (or put ) your canopy up and communicate with the ground crew through your normal radio command- without having to switch over.

No you don't, as long as you have the IN and HM knobs pulled you don't have to change the rotary. Well at least not on the real ACFT, I haven't tested this in months guess I need to take a look to make sure they didn't change the logic.

I have been strungling a bit with the settings needed to control ground crew so sat down and started testing a few days back with as many combinations as possible. The findings are listed in the attached file.

 

Not relevant means any position.

 

In short when canopy is open any MIC call on throttle will work.

 

Once canopy is closed then battery need to be ON, and settings must be according to the listed settings. If in VHF position no coms with ground crews are possible.

 

I have a few small questions though:

 

1. What is the fifth position on the Intercoms Control Panel (ICP). I have marked it as "??".

2. AIM does turn off the Sidewinder tone off when pushed in. However in out position the volumen seems to be regulated 0-100% in just turning the knob 20º. Is it suppose to be like this? Volumen control on the ICP for the radios seems to adjust 0-100% in app. 300º.

 

 

Cheers

Volume for what exactly...you knew I was gonna ask...genuinely curious.

 

Most of the navaids (ILS, TACAN, marker) are obnoxiously loud at the default setting, I turn them way down if I'm using them.

 

For the original question - what's the point of the intercom knob if it has no effect in the real aircraft? Is it just a carryover from the A-10A?
