  1. During landing of Air Group, AC get locked up and all planes will not land.

    Group FiA  landing at captured base Fuzhou, China (CHa) only will land 4 planes. ! plane will never land in game.

    The same thing has happened on Carrier Group AEC. Air Groups F1A, IvA, G0A, HXA, AaA, and EtA.

    This situation occurs if you exceed the # of runways the base or carrier is rated for.

    I attempted to create the same issue in a small test scenario and wasn't able to duplicate the issue.

    TonyD and I have both sen this issue. He brought it to my attention.

    Attached is a saved game 1 second before the air group lands.

    If any additional saved games are needed, please let me know.

    Air group EzAis also stuck in the same state landing at base FiA.

    Attached are saved game 1 second before air group lands. GE and SE log files. Copy of the db used for this game.

  2. Magazines on ships and bases don't match mounts in PE.

    In some cases red magazines are on blue ships and bases.

    Looking deeper into my db it seems that the 1st magazine of a ship or base seems to be the one that is incorrect.

    Several examples are shown in the Word Doc. in the attached zip file.

    There is a copy of one of my db's that have the corrupt magazines.

    Please let me know if you need any additional information.

  3. Looking deeper into my personnel db I have found some of my magazines have been scrambled or completely blank. The PE shows that there was something there but everything is totally empty.




    Using Don Tomas's Tool box I can see that there isn't any problem with magazines in my current game.

    My next step is to reload my last backup of my db into the PE and see what happens.

  4. I have seen this happen with bases in my personal db too.

    There is a limit of around 13,000 magazines available in HC.

    You can find the number of magazines you have looking at tPlatformMagazine.

    I have attached a screen shot to help you locate the annex where the magazines are located.

    I use the full version of MS Access and am not sure if it is available to a player that uses the MS Access Runtime the comes with HC.

    That would be a TonyE question.

  5. One of the limiting factors would be how far the Sonobuoy can transmit data to the processing equipment on the aircraft. To process data from a sonobuoy field the AC would have to fly at an altitude to receive data from all the buoy's.

    An article I just came across says that a Sonobuoy from as high as 30,000 feet.


    Here is another article on Sonobuoy's:


    Here is an article on how the whole process for detecting a sub works:


    The lower the AC is to the water the easier it is for the sub to hear the aircraft.

    Once a contact has been acquired and the general location of the contact is known only then the aircraft drops down to a lower altitude to get a precise location of the contact wit MAD.

    I haven't been able to find out the transmission range to the aircraft of the buoy. That information may not be published for a good reason.

    To detect a surface ship you would first look for any electronic emissions. The electronic emissions will be detected long before the ship will be able to detect the aircraft.

    Since the noise a surface ship makes is trapped above the thermal layer of the ocean it can travel long distances. The only way to try an localize a surface contact is to use Time motion analysis. A good example for TMA was used in the Hunt for Red October by Sonar Technician Jonsey when he plotted the course of the weird sound. He was able to figure out what the course was of the Red October.

    The one unknown factor is what can Harpoon do and can't do. That is the question for TE to try and answer.

  6. After leaving TonyD and I alone for 15 minutes we found an issue with the 2023.003 version of the SE.

    When selection weapons on a plane at an air base the SE Crashes.

    When selecting Sensor on a ship or a sub the SE crashes.

    Crashes verified by TD and myself with various db's and scenarios.

    Included in the Zip file is a small scenario, latest db and the SE log file.

  7. The Mark 54 was co-developed by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems and the U.S. Navy under the U.S. Navy's Lightweight Hybrid Torpedo program in response to perceived problems with the extant Mark 50 and Mark 46 torpedoes. The Mk 50, having been developed to counter very high performance nuclear submarines such as the Soviet Alfa class, was seen as too expensive to use against relatively slow conventional submarines. The older Mk 46, designed for open-ocean use, performed poorly in the littoral areas, where the Navy envisioned itself likely to operate in the future.

    The Mk 54 was created by combining the homing portion of the Mk 50 and the warhead and propulsion sections of the Mk 46, improved for better performance in shallow water, and with the addition of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology to further reduce costs. It shares much of the software and computer hardware of the Mk 48 ADCAP heavy torpedo, based around a custom PowerPC 603e microprocessor.

    The Mk 54 can be fired from surface ships via the Mark 32 surface vessel torpedo tubes or the vertical launch anti-submarine rocket (ASROC) systems, and also from most ASW aircraft, although they are slightly different lengths and weights. The P-8 Poseidon uses the High-Altitude Anti-Submarine Warfare Weapons Capability (HAAWC) GPS-guided parachute kit to drop torpedoes from high altitude.

  8. The U.S. Navy is set to demonstrate the ability to fire an AGM-88G Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile Extended Range, or AARGM-ER, from a ground-based launcher this year. The missile's manufacturer, Northrop Grumman, has been pitching surface-launch options for the weapon, and derivatives thereof, for years now. The Navy is also exploring adding the AGM-88G to the already expanding arsenal for the P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol plane.

  9. The BAE Systems Tempest is a proposed sixth-generation fighter aircraft that is under development in the United Kingdom for the Royal Air Force (RAF). The aircraft is intended to enter service from 2035, gradually replacing the Eurofighter Typhoon. It is being developed as part of the Future Combat Air System (FCAS) programme by a consortium known as Team Tempest, which includes the Ministry of Defence, BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, Leonardo, and MBDA UK. £2 billion is planned to be spent by the British government on the initial phase of the project up to 2025.

  10. The Ground Launched Small Diameter Bomb (GLSDB) is a weapon made by Boeing and the Saab Group, who modified Boeing's GBU-39 Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) with the addition of a rocket motor. Initial testing began in 2015. If supplied to Ukraine in 2023, this would mark the weapon's first export and use in combat. The weapon is launched from ground-based missile systems such as the M270 Multiple Launch Rocket System and M142 HIMARS.
