@teddy the 24/BLU-118 already is a fuel-air explosive, that's just one way to make a thermobaric bomb. FPS drop is manageable

Thanks for the update, but the new weapons aren't available on the old planes.  Need laser JDAMS! :p

I think that's mostly what they use now, since it's just a small addon kit.  I did notice the change in the model for the GBU-38 and the fact that it doesn't laser lock.  Very thoughtful from a realism standpoint.  It's the little things ;)

Just need my laser JDAMS back.  XD

 

by me f-16c loader module is not setting the weapons anymore...26r1s.jpg

Hey Firewill, just out of curiosity but is the AH-99R going to get the same treatment as your UH-80R as in you can set the pylons on via the Eden Editor?

What is the TGP display function?  is that something to integrate with masnooper?

I don't think I had any Vulcan crash trouble, amazingly.

new weapon integration is will be update each aircraft little by little. today F-16 updated for LJDAM/EGBU-12/CBU-105. APKWS is still under test with A-10C.

TGP Display function is only available in A-10C for test. and just display the targeting screen on MFD. no have any other function.

Again Firewill a huge thanks for all your hard work on updating the UH-80R.  Our group loves it ! Hopefully the community will appreciate it as much as we do !

Loving the APKWS on the A-10C. It locks on all laser targets(from I-TGT; another aircraft; and ground forces). They are great for a fast close-quarters air support. We will continue to use them and try to find flaws:razz:

-thankyou.

I cannot wait for that Firewill!  
I've been playing with the Dev build to pass word to our unit's pilots about all the cool stuff coming, and was just waiting to see what Modders would be doing with it.
Great looking work!

Are those HARMS working as Home on Active Radar ground targets in DEV?  And what Max Range are you testing Active Radar at in the F-16?

currently focus on dynamic loadout, sensor development is didn't start.

Well, thanks.  Good to see someone is working on implementing it for their mods, and your Airframes are some of the best out there. 

I'll quit bugging you about sensor info ;)

Is there any Arma 3 difference between EGBUs to GBUs? In real life there is but I wonder if you implemented something based on weather conditions

EGBU Paveways (and Paveway IV) can use the GPS/INS guidance. So in the addon they can use GPS coordinates from the I-TGT menu in addition to locking on laser targets, where normal GBU Paveways can only lock on laser targets.

 

They work the same as the GBU-54 Laser-JDAMs

To nip any questions regarding what is the difference in the field in the bud, I believe the EGBU-12's paveway kit still offers greater accuracy than the GBU-54's laser spot tracker, thus the EGBU would be used with GPS for initial glide and laser for final attack ideally, while the GBU-54 would use the laser if it needs to for instance hit a moving target but not so much dropping bombs down chimneys. In Arma 3, there's no functional difference, it depends on which you think looks cooler (though you can fit more LJDAMs than EGBUs on the F-15E (when it gets updated) due to the LJDAM's more compact laser spot tracker)

Thanks the new pylon system, now F-16 have only 10 proxies!(in before, F-16 had 35 estimated. F-15E? hell.)

and also can make GEPOD 30 for A-16(F/A-16) in 1980s

Your starting to build quite and extensive arsenal in your AWS ! Excited to see the GPU-5/a in there for your F-15 and your F-16, definitely going to add some unique features. Also glad the new Dev updates are allowing you to cut down on the amount of scripting proxies in your load outs.  Thanks for the updates.

It is a video game so we won't have any of the downsides of the real thing. Kinda worries me with regards to the A-10's place then, an F-15E with a GPU-5 and a bunch of SDB racks would fill the same role as an A-10 handily...

A-10's will be able to take more damage than an F-15 Most likely.  Along with the Sensors/Dynamic Loadout/Datalink  JETS will include hitpoint and damage implementations for discrete systems.

@firewill is it possible to make balanced release? What I mean is, i.e. I have 3*2 gbu-38. When I start releasing them it finishes first one wing and then another. Is there a possibility to make balanced release so it will not have asymmetrical loads?

Another idea about FIR AWS is, it would be nice multiple releases to all memory points which are set. So I enter 4 GPS locations and select all (at the moment it selects only 1) and when I release, it releases 4 bombs.
