― Weapon Description

The Mk. 82 Bomb is a generic, unguided free-fall bomb available for all playable fixed-wing aircraft in VTOL VR.

Usage

The Mk. 82 features multiple different weapon release options, which can be found in the EQUIP menu.

  • CCRP Auto: Continuously Computed Release Point marker for TGP assisted bomb drops.
    • ON - Restricts bomb drops to only be possible once CCRP aligns with the horizontal drop point.
    • OFF - Allows bomb drops to be done at any time, regardless of CCRP alignment.
  • Release Area: The distance threshold at which bombs are dropped within the CCRP. Only relevant while a ripple rate is set and CCRP AUTO is active.
    • 25 - Releases bombs in a 25-meter line.
    • 50 - Releases bombs in a 50-meter line.
    • 100 - Releases bombs in a 100-meter line.
    • 200 - Releases bombs in a 200-meter line.
  • Ripple Rate: Determines the rate at which bombs are dropped when holding down the trigger. The drop rates are measured in bombs per minute.
    • Single - Releases a single bomb per trigger pull.
    • 120 - Continuously releases 120 bombs per minute.
    • 240 - Continuously releases 240 bombs per minute.
    • 480 - Continuously releases 480 bombs per minute.
  • Salvo: The amount of available Mk. 82 equipped Hardpoints being released at once.

Deployment

  1. Enable the Master Arm switch.
  2. Select the Mk. 82 as your current weapon.
    • Deploying with CCIP:
      1. Dive towards your target and position the CCIP HUD pipper over your target.
      2. When ready, pull the trigger to release the bomb.
    • Deploying with CCRP:
      1. Turn on the TGP and set it to SOI.
      2. While holding the flight stick, use the thumb stick to slew the TGP reticle over the desired target. The reticle will snap to a unit and lock onto it.
      3. Line up the CCRP line on the HUD. As the diamond passes between the brackets, pull the trigger to release the bomb. (When using the CCRP AUTO setting, hold the trigger while the diamond passes between the brackets.)
