Go to F10 map
Hit Left Alt Y to change default coordinate format to UTM coordinates
Get the UTM coordinates of the target
Plug it into this website

That will give you coordinates in Lat Long in Deg Min Sec where the seconds has the xx.xx format.

4/21/2019 - AKA_C2_M1_V32 (mission #1, version 32)

- Removed the static AV8Bs from the Tarawa to hopefully avoid the "delayed" spawning message.
- Rearranged some of the enemy units at Charlie town so they are not hidden in the trees (at least until they disperse)
- Adjusted the friendly FAC vehicles' properties, making invincible/invulnerable higher
- Adjusted the spawn points on the Stennis

Let me know if you can't access it.

S! Rel

With the testing I have done I am able to hit a structure not much bigger than a tank.  You need to have 3 things.

1.  You need to be able to see the target in the F10 map so you can be sure you are picking the right impact point.  Example, if you try and look at a Road Outpost structure it doesnt show on the map (you just see the target icon) and the icon isn't actually on the structure so you can't use it as an aim point.

2.  You need to have two digits after the seconds decimal in order to get the accuracy you need.

3.  You need to be around 20k'+ in alt.
 

here lies the true issue. the game does not produce the final two decimal digits except for lasing correct? i saw an intensive video of a guy in a gazelle taking lasing info from a minimum of 3 vantage points to produce the decimal degrees.

dont read this too early in the morning :D i guess best we can do is have a FACA but that misses the point. without data link between AC it boils down a bunch of unsquelched banter. now question is does ruining the runway eliminate the use by the enemy? DCS modeled that is.

Just dropped $70, mig 19 (used some bonus) KA 50 and the GPS system.  Oh course I will not be flying theses for a while as I am saturated..

MattE

the Ka-50 cockpit is really screwed up, from several patches.. it is a huge shame that you will not see how nice it is until they quit jerking off and fix it... it is very nice when they have it all working correctly.

Maybe we could use not only ground Jtac, but also have another aircraft spot a target and share the location. Until we get more fixes.
Is there a chart of aircraft that share the same navigation info, which can be transferred. (transferred without a lot of math to change).
I don't mind the math but no longer have science calculators.

I see that the large JDams can completely take out an airfield, they just don't leave little craters, they leave moon craters.

What Clutter said, I bought the Mig 19 with the Bonus points the rest were on sale so I could not use Bonus points on them.

Get the Harrier.  F-5 is fun but the Harrier is COOL!

MattE
thanx..

I kind of look at things that fil gaps where I need aircraft for an era, or time and place.. F-5 would have fill a gap...
I could use the Mirage although the two are not even close to the same... but flew in the same time period.... and the Mirage is 3x larger than the F-5.
we are suppose to get an (FC3) next (FC4) that will have an F-5 (but Flaming Cliffs style F/M.) No one knows when.

although the FA-18C would be for SEAD, right now, kind of flaky...
The Harrier, multi-role...

one thing I never saw when working with the British Harriers,,, they didn't have a balance issue, but then again they never flew around me unbalanced... the racks were either completely full or empty...
another thing I wondered.. I would put de-mineralized water in the KC-135 tankers,, but never had to put water in the harriers... so, they either didn't need the water. Also climate makes a huge difference in the engine thrust, and the heat in hot climates or humid and heat made the need for more water injection. Most of the time in Germany there are not many times and months when there is the heat factor for lift. But, when they are deployed in places where they need more lift.

I looked on Youtube and could not find much on using A-A. Not sure how capable it is for fighting off an attacker. Radar, lock, fire, etc.
