Harpoon has been on every computer I have ever had, but finally... FINALLY, I have started the CMANO conversion course. I am now on a steep learning curve. One difference that is causing me all sorts of problems is the system of range circles for aircraft. In Harpoon, aircraft ranges were shown on the map by white range circles which got smaller as fuel was expended. I cannot find anything like this in CMANO. When I go to map settings, all I can find is a show range symbols tab. When I look at the platform details, the only range information in km shown is the ferry range. All other load-out ranges seem to be expressed in terms of time on station before bingo fuel is reached. I am sure that CMANO is doing things the way it does for a very good reason, but nevertheless, I would be very grateful if some kind person can explain how the CMANO system works, particularly with regard to planning and the decision process regarding the stationing of aircraft.

Thanks in advance,

Pongo.

AG aircraft should show relative range of mission, based the hardcoded flight profile. Yes, AA missions usually show a range plus a time on station. It's not ideal for everyone I feel. There have been other threads expressing requests for improved fuel planning, hopefully to be put in the long awaited Advanced Strike planner.

One tip however - can only be used once airborne - create a set of waypoints, and at each waypoint you can adjust speed and altitude. You will notice at the bottom of the altitude/speed window, the estimated fuel consumption for your route, based on which waypoint you select. I find this very useful - to the point I wish it could be done in a planning phase prior to aircraft being airborne.

With bingo fuel range listed in unit fuel area, I'm not sure if range circles would be very useful once airborne. I just look at bingo fuel range (or total fuel range including reserves), and using the range beating tool to see where I can go. Bingo fuel doctrine can be overridden, which I do quite often, as the reserve fuel, not included in bingo fuel calculations, can sometimes be very conservative depending on the aircraft.

I've been told the ASP will also cure certain forms of cancer.
