Exhibit: Tornado (1993)
Commodore Amiga: LGB and JP-233 in Tornado (1993)
Rob "Bomber" Henderson reported :LGB's were superbly modelled along with the TIALD laser designation system.
Just like the 1991 Gulf War footage, you could loose off 4 LGB's and if you timed the launch correctly, you could get four targets one after the other - bang!, bang!, bang!, bang! - quick as it is to read it.
The nav and targeting systems in the rear cockpit were incredibly hi-res and really did allow you to pick out one building in a street or complex and hit it with one bomb from 150ft @ 550kts with a near 100% success rate without causing collateral damage.
Weapons could be linked to the autopilot for automatic release over the target.
The JP-233 anti-runway was a monster and would shake the aircraft to bits while in operation.
Once all the mines had gone, the main canisters would be jettisoned automatically with a huge bang and leave you free to run away. The first time I used one, the effects on the aircraft were so bad I thought I had been hit by AAA.
