In F4, or A6, after setting the target point there is a vertical line on cockpit crosshair, that indicates where target point is. That thing helps a lot with CCRP bombing
Tornado IDS has a vertical line like that, but it doesn’t stick with target point but with a in-cockpit crosshair. I can’t tell how many times i have missed my target on SB because i had no idea where target point is.
Now there is a question - is there any way to make ccrp bombing more reliable that that? Is bombing line not sticking with target point a bug?
Afaik that’s realistic.
Hm, I never had aby issues with it in the Tornado…
That F-4 screenshot, what variant is it? I have never seen a CCRP line in my F-4E…
ikr, thats strange, i want that in my F4F
I have had this exact same thought and it is correct, but we have missing symbology.
To clarify terminology: it seems the Harrier and Jaguar use a track line / azimuth steering line (basically a line telling you where you need to fly) where as the Tornado uses a bomb fall line (basically a line showing you where your bombs will fall)
From a cursory glance it seems the Tornado HUD symbology may be correct in how the line is presented. However in real life the Tornado pilot could use the autopilot to keep the bomb fall line aligned with the target marker. Alternatively if the autopilot wasn’t used then there was “flight director” symbology on the HUD which told the pilot how to steer (it also told you when to start pulling up).
The symbology looks like this:
So the F4 is like the Jaguar and Harrier
I do have a bug report in for the missing symbology, but I doubt it will ever get added
