Good evening IFC I hope you all are well. I wanted to share an Idea I had for the ability of fighter aircraft to target other fighter aircraft. first off know that I am military simmer I love the military aviation appeal that IF brings to the table, however they are missing a feature that would bring more attention to the military community and possibly attract more interest in the perspective of mil aviation specifically among the fighter community. I would like to see the implementation of a basic aircraft targeting recognition system. essentially it would be a tone that would come through the HUD of your fighter when you have maintained a lock on an aircraft. of course there would be restrictions to use of this for one, you would not be able to target civil or commercial aviation aircraft of any kind, it would be strictly against military aircraft only. It would also time out below 10,000ft and above active airspaces as not to interfere with any commercial traffic. It would also only be included in the aircraft systems display center with all the other actions meaning it has to be engaged manually much how it is in real life. you could program the acquiring tone to also only work within a maximum and minimum nm distance of targetable aircraft. Think of it as a laser tag system your military aircraft can be pinged only once certain requirements are met then the systems tab allows you to tag/lock on that aircraft and your notified via the solid tone once you have the lock. The acquiring tone would be a resonating beep to let you know your tracking onto on aircraft while the aircraft being tracked also has the same sound in their cockpit signaling a lock is being acquired or the lock has been made. I know its a long shot but to me why have fighters if you cant use them. I know my pieces are not all there on the implementation but this is a start and every beginning starts somewhere. so I leave it up to vote to the community I will attach a link to a short video clip of a default targeting acquirement and lock on tone.
like I stated a long shot but could bring more customer basis to the sim and satisfy many long term consumers as well. Thank you for your time and please feel free to ask any questions. If this request is not for you I get but just be respectful of the request not all of us like commercial not all of us like military but we are community and we are human.
