This situation has been mentioned before, but this is slightly different problem and very easy to detect.

With the assistance of another well-respected forum member, we were able to determine the following:

The Essex group is sailing in a southwesterly direction, when 4 ballistic missiles are detected by the USS SORENSON. This has already occurred, and a few seconds have transpired.

The Essex group is armed with SM-3 IB missiles (200 mile range).

The ballistic missiles are about 400 miles away but due to their speed, the program now allows the SAMs to be fired because the Intercept Point will be within the 200 miles. (Great Job, programmers.)

Now comes the interesting part. They won't fire on their own.

But, if you look at the missiles to fire them MANUALLY you will see that they are highlighted in GREEN, and are ready to be fired.

In fact, if you do fire them MANUALLY, they will work perfectly.

But, they will NOT fire automatically, as they should.

Now, here's a really weird part. If you replace just one of the SM-3 IB missiles with a SM-3 IIA (much longer range), then the program will fire the SM-3 IB missiles at the targets, and everything works perfectly. (Note: It does NOT fire the SM-3 IIA, the program just needs the SM-3 IIA to be present on the ship for the SM-3 IB to be fired automatically.

You can test this in just one minute to see it not work automatically; see it work manually; replace one SM-3 IB with a SM-3 IIA and watch it work perfectly. The whole process will take you just a couple of minutes at the most. The segment in the scenario is already ready to go.

Thanks in advance.

Doug

Hi Steve,

You indicated that this situation would be FIXED for the next update. The "NEXT" update came out yesterday, and I noticed that the same problem still exists. Did you mean the update AFTER this one, since this one came out so soon after we had communicated, or was it supposed to be fixed with this one? In any case, it still functions as I had preciously reported.

Thanks in advance.

Doug

The just official update was the last 'beta' one (.25).
So the fix will be in the next build

Thank you. That's what I figured. I just wanted to verify that.

Thanks again.
