Author Topic: IFF or NCTR in F/A-18 by Jane´s

Hello, I´ve got a question:
how can I launch the IFF or the NCTR Options in my Hornet?
I tried it a lot of times, but all my targets were unknown all the time.
I hope somebody can help me, thank you.

You don't "launch" IFF. It is an internal electronic tool. And it's not magic (i.e. it does not always work).

Read page 5-108 to 5-109 in the manual, or use TWS scan radar mode which tries to id the target automatically.

As I understand, it is a relayed set of information from AWACS. Indeed, it doesn't necessariliy give you IFF information.

An alternative is to use the SA function. Frendlies appear as ^ and hostiles appear as - with threat priorities.

Neither IFF nor the NCTR system modeled in the game involves AWACS. If it did, it would make no difference to NCTR determination where the bogey is relative to your aircraft or what radar mode you are in, but it does.

Ruben, you are a tad mixed up with the friendly identification in the SA page. Hostiles are marked as ^ and I don't even think friendlies are shown.
