Hi, couple of questions...
Is it possible in the real live to AS the jamming targets with SA-2 and 3? Because I think it doesn't... Of course we cannot track in RS and I believe by allowing AS on the noise it's like have a pair of very skilful operators...
Also, I believe it's good (in the SIM), when we hit the jammer, and it stopes transmition, we should loose AS (on SA-2 particularry). As I knew, when two targets are very close one to each other and the signal fluctuation is big, it could result in a loosing AS. Disappearing of the noise jamming is a prety big signal fluctuation, isn't it?
In real life, there are 3 ways of tracking the target with the Volhov.
1, FCO tracking in Epsilon/Beta/Range
(his wheels are pulled out, towards him)
We are acting, as player
2, RS - manual tracking by Epsilon/Beta/Range tracker
(FCO wheels are pushed in (you can hear it in the sim), away from him)
3, AS - automatic tracking by the system
The sim has AI Epsilon/Beta/Range tracker, so we only act as the FCO.
The FCO gives the control to the trackers by pushing his wheel, and RS(!!!) lamps will indicate it at the "Z" panel.
The AI trackers will decide if they track it in AS or in RS.
When the target disappears, the manual trackers change to RS, and keep the antenna moving try to find the target.
Am I confusing?
Epsilon tracker RS-AS selector:
Note, that he change the system Epsilon speed, not the Epsilon directly like the FCO.
(this is why lockdown is implemented)
