If you have the countermeasures activated the Hornet will dispense flares and chaff every time the skin is painted by a search radar. This was really annoying me until I read about this in the manual.

I'd thought my Saitek Throttle was malfunctioning, triggering random chaff and flares. Another story proving I should R.T.F.M. !
