[DB ISSUE] MQ-9B SeaGuardian STOL UAV, Unable to Take-Off/Land

Post by FifthDomain »

Good Evening

Build 1278.1, DB3K_496, Steam

#5812 MQ-9B SeaGuardian STOL UAV, United States, 2022 has a landing 1-250m for use on LHA/LHD but currently when trying to load on to LHA/LHD the following messages appears: Unable to land on this facility due to runway/access. Unable to take-off from this facility due to runway/access/launcher. Unable to add all aircraft to base - Exceeded maximum aircraft parking space (The ship has no aircraft at all currently added).

I have tried to add the MQ-9B to the following Ships, LHA 8 Bougainville, LHD 8 Makin Island, R 08 Queen Elizabeth, R 08 Queen Elizabeth (CATOBAR), R 09 Ark Royal, CVN 79 John F. Kennedy, CVN 77 George Bush.

With Runway (1x Medium Aircraft) added to the ships the only message is Unable to add all aircraft to base - Exceeded maximum aircraft parking space (The ship has no aircraft at all currently added).

Save v1.1, Has ships ready to try adding.
Save v1.2, Has drones ready to land on ships to try force a landing (This gives failed to set new home base).
Save v1.3, Has Runway (1x Small Aircraft), 1x Runway (1x Medium Aircraft) and UAV Catapult (NATO Class 1, Small) added to the ships to see if this made a difference. (It didn't).

Logs and Saves Included.

Thank for your time.

Currently looking at a fix for 'fixed-wing UAV's.

The lack of 'runway' is impacting being able to land/launch these. With the fix, I managed to get them to land/take-off in the last example in which you had added runways.

What are the changes that are added to make aircraft carrier capable? Would something like that work in this case?

Yes, making carrier-capable might be one option I think would work; might try that out later this week.

I think the F-35B would be best as reference as that will take off from both carrier and LHA/LHD where as other like the F-35C, F/A-18 Super Hornet will just end up in a constant waiting for runway loop.

Build 1282.1

Unfortunately the newest beta fix has not cured the problem, although it can be made to work by adding a runway to the ships. Same warning messages as before, let me know if you want me to generate some new logs.

Code-wise, it will support the MQ IF there is a runway. I think something needs to be done on the DB side, like making it carrier capable.

Yes please. It has been raised with the DB team, just not 'officially'. :D
