DCS World updated

Just thought I would share here the results of a "nuke" in DCS.
Only the MiG 21Bis can carry these and has a pretty simple control panel to drop this menace!

So I found a suitable pilot to get this going.

Previous tests were done with pretty good results with the RN-28 1 kiloton bomb which had to be launched "over the shoulder" (upside down basically) after a 5g climb to from 1000kph to give the pilot a chance to get clear of the blast, only needed to start from 1500 or so feet from the floor so easy peasy.

Moving on to the 10 Kiloton RN-24 a bit more height was needed but not too much as a lot of speed was lost trying to climb straight up from 20k Feet!
The results from the drop.

The pilot was nowhere to be seen.....
 
We now, internally, have a new TDC slew option for the Maverick that does not require the TDC to be depressed while slewing. Once you cease slewing the seeker, the seeker will attempt to lock whatever is the center of the crosshairs. If it can nothing to lock, it will go into break lock mode. In other words, pretty much how it works with the Maverck in the A-10C. It should be available in the next Open Beta. Wags

Hooray for easier Mav's in the Hornet!
