Hi,
FlightGear 2.8 is quite old and outdated, is updating to the latest version an option? Many users report far better performance in the recent versions if that is an issue :)

Hi Ragav,
So you first I don't know which version you of the mirage you actually have, but in the last version, masterarm have to be activated "m" button.
To verify that just try the gun. If it doesn't fire, you need to press "m"
Then if you did "r" on the radar, then the radar focus span should have pass from 120° to 60°. Then, you have to select your target by pressing "n"
And finally you can fire.
(Btw I really need to know which version of the mirage do you have)
Thanks to spend a little of your time on this aircraft, hope you will enjoy it.

Hi,
As far as I remember, I started to work on missile the whole month of September 2012.
So if you can't fire missile with this version, it's because the code is not there.
Then the missiles had lots of improves (by the OPRF team) and things like angular navigation, inertial navigation etc , capability to lock a IR missile on the sun until the very last version of the mirage, f16, viggen, f15, f14 (maybe more)
Did you try what I wrote earlier ? what are the result ?
Enjoy your fly

Is it not possible for you to update your Flight gear version to 2018.3.1?

It will be... difficult to find aircraft compatible with 2.80

seriously try to update to 2018.3.1... FG v2.80 was released 2012 Aug 17... there have been huge changes, bug fixes and a large number of features added over the last 6 years... unless there's a real showstopping reason for not upgrading to the latest FG v2018.3.1, you really should try it...

"Why not?" said Gurder.
