Hello,
A few questions for the use of the gun in TacPack:
1. Safety switch on the stick: when is it on: when it's up or when it's down ? 
2. sounds: does the firing of the guns make the usual noise, I was unable to hear anything ?
3. could you be more precise about the weapon select button for the guns, is it RP PR or R ?
4. Same for the gunsight control: is it GA, M, G,R, B or S ?
5. How much "Depression" for gun training on ground target ?

Many thanks for your answer.
A more complete an precise manual would be of great help !
Charles

Hi Charles

Here some answers to your questions:
1.     When it’s up, you can shoot
2.     There is a sound, when the gun shoots
3.     If the gun is live, you can shoot at any position. Use the icon with shift&1 to get the weapons live
4.     Normal shooting distance for the gun is 1’000m. At this distance the gun shoots straight, so use “M” (fix at no depression) to shoot the gun. Aim slightly low as the gun shoots slightly high.
5.     See above

Unfortunately there are still some bugs with the weapons:
-     If you want to shoot multiple bursts with the gun you have to select “AAM green”. This should be possible on “AAM amber” as well.
-     At a shooting distance of 1’000m the gun shoots about 10m high (can be corrected easily)
-     If you load or reload the rockets, you have to push the pickle twice for the first rocket. The rockets should go at the first click of the pickle.
-     If you select a depression on the gunsight, the figures on the wheel do not correspond to the actual depression of the sight. The depression of the sight should be about the double from what it is now.
-     If you have mixed loads with A-A missiles on the wing, you can’t shoot conventional weapons, as long as you have a A-A missile on the wing. Shooting a rocket or dropping a bomb should be possible with a A-A missile on the wing.
