Wind correction not working on CV90-35 DK-NL

Recommended Posts

Can you please give any more information what's not working? IIRC on the -DK variant met properties cannot even be entered, an in the -NL it is only the TC who can change these settings via the MFP..

Maybe thats another bug. In SB you can enter wind speed and wind direction on both CV models from TC and gunners position,using the black and yellow letter screen (i dont know the name),in the CALC tab.

"MFP", and the secret meaning to that acronym is Multi Function Panel. Another military secret lifted!

Scratch another one "MFD", Multi Function Display".  Seems the Air Force and the Army don´t get along to good with acronyms as both do mean the same, or someone decided to swap the "d" for a "p" :D

 

Just lick your finger and stick it out the hatch!

The problem with that name is CV-90-35 has two MFD, so saying the one with the yellow letters reduce the options to only 1.

Yesterday Rotar and I were doing some tests and I think we discovered what is happening: Cv-90 NL use a clock reference to enter the wind direction, the usual thing is 12 is North, 6 is South and so on, but in SB is using a diferent reference, so 12 is East, and 6 is West. The same thign happens with the Dk version but with mils instead the clock directions, 0 mils is East, and 3200 is West

Ah, but the other is called the VIS (Vehicle Information System).

That's an excellent hint.

East and North - confusing cartographers since the medieval era...
