A-10C Tips (video)

Recommended Posts

I came across this video from ralfidude. I've been a fan of his videos for some time, but this one is great common sense and "good to know" tips.

Another video. The theme is dropping multiple JDAMs, but the real takeaway is the use of Markpoints.

Just a point of clarification: flight plan and mission waypoints use numbers, whereas Markpoints use letters A-Z (Z being reserved for the last weapon release). This is why he is able to create a Markpoint flightplan just choosing points A-C.

Another great video that explains how the TGP works, and why it's good to lase your target prior to dropping a JDAM (even though the JDAM is not laser guided).

A couple of battlespace/target management videos by Gerry Abbott

Note: if you watched the video in the previous post, you'll understand the target offset at the end of this video B)

This one's a bit longer, but you'll definitely get something out of it. The Bulls-Cursor selection was pretty cool IMHO.

Thanks for posting these videos, Home Fries. I went through them once and will be watching again. I already learned a lot.

I've watched these videos more than once as well. Best bet is to watch, do, watch. That way you have a frame of reference to catch something the second time around.

Another video by Ralfidude on SAM hunting. He also ingeniously uses Mark Points to delineate friendly lines, helpful to avoid blue-on-blue engagements.
