Exhibit - Total Air War

The F-22 in TAW features integrated sensors and weapons, and the fire control system will prioritize all the threats or targets based on all available sensor and downlink data and build a "shoot list" for each weapon type.

The targets show up on the attack MFD and in the HUD/HMD with symbols indicating position and direction of motion, and with the first priority target in a circle.

The defense MFD (repeated in the lower left corner of the HMD) shows positions of threats as well as their estimated radar coverage cones. The defensive systems are largely automated, but you still need to honor the threat - placing an incoming missile at your 3 or 9 o’clock is a good start. BVR combat can get VERY busy in TAW.
