    Some advice and suggestion. Only one AN/ALQ pod can be used at a time or there is major interference between the pod signal intercept, demod, decode, recode, remod, and jam or wild weasel function. One or either side for aspect only. One at a time. Play Megafortress for a wild weasel screen sim at the signal intercept/jam station. The real world AN/ALQ pods are automated, but if you want to make it more interesting, have player adjustable freq, modulation, squelch, etc. in one of the MFDs. The first wild weasel missions included a bait and trap signal acquisition, using the " crazy pilots " ....um.... I mean " Iron Hand " pilots to bait the EW/LRT radar to emit. Then the EA-6B would intercept the signal, and recode, and remodulate the sign to the misile. The misile tracking system would then detect signal origin as the reflection. ROTFLMAO.... Wish I could have seen the luk on the SAM RO's face. LOL The real screens are top secret. Do not go digging for that realism, or you may have a realy weird dream. Have fun. -Tim

    The LSM1 class landing ship is probably the most diverse and durable asault landing ships built. Wiki specs: Type: Amphibious warfare ship Displacement: 520 long tons (528 t) light 743 long tons (755 t) landing 1,095 long tons (1,113 t) full load Length: 203 ft 6 in (62.03 m) o/a Beam: 34 ft 6 in (10.52 m) Draft: 3 ft 6 in (1.07 m) forward 7 ft 8 in (2.34 m) aft Fully loaded : 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m) forward 8 ft 3 in (2.51 m) aft Propulsion: 2 × Fairbanks-Morse (model 38D81/8X10, reversible with hydraulic clutch) diesels. Direct drive with 1,440 bhp (1,074 kW) each @ 720 rpm, twin screws Speed: 13.2 knots (15.2 mph; 24.4 km/h) Range: 4,900 nmi (9,100 km) at 12 kn (22 km/h) Capacity: 5 medium or 3 heavy tanks, or 6 LVTs, or 9 DUKWs Troops: 2 officers, 46 enlisted Complement: 5 officers, 54 enlisted Armament: 6 × 20 mm AA gun mounts Armour: 10-lb. STS splinter shield to gun mounts, pilot house and conning station The smallest assualt ship with a blue water classification eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeever. It has a split hinged bow, and a "beach party" ramp. My favorite configuration was for the production of L750. ( it has a helipad ). Germany bought a bunch of them. I think it will be a really kewel addition to Arma 3. -Wil "Boogeyman" Doherty
