JA37DI Help

Postby ORCA » Tue Aug 14, 2018 1:12 pm

Hi all.
I'm learning how to fly the JA37DI,
There are a few questions I would like to ask...

1. How do I use radar and autopilot systems?

2. How do you shoot a missile?
(I can shoot machine guns and M/70 rocked, but can't launch missiles)

3. Sometimes JA37DI will suddenly lose power. How can I solve it?

3. Don't fly inverted for more than 10 seconds.

2. Missiles need a lock. Press 'n' or 'N' to designate something with the radar. Then when their within range range use 'e' or trigger (if you have set it up) to fire. However there are more ways to fire missiles, like the IR missiles dont need a radar lock etc., but try this to to start with.

1. This is not easy explained in text. So I have made 7 videos that explains most of its systems: (they are best watched in order)

I still need to make a video for using weapons, but until that is done, just ask questions here.

I’d like to chip in and say that Necolatis’ videos are A+ quality and will help you quite a bit. They are definitely worth the time spent watching if you really want to learn the Viggen.
