Can't shoot AIM120 in Bore.
I tried shooting an AIM120C (just to try, without any radar contact) in Bore mode, but it doesn’t launch. When I press the pickle button, the fpm flashes and that’s all. Of course the master arm is on.
I tried both selecting “bore” in the AIM120 WPN page, and also holding down the cursor enable button (which sets the AIM120 mode to “bore”), but the result is the same: no launch and fpm flashing.
Do you have any idea?

It sounds like you’re trying to launch Maddog. This makes the missile’s internal radar go active immediately and it will seek the first target it sees. It has a much shorter range this way, but can be launched without a FCR lock. This is incredibly dangerous if their are any friendlies in your front hemisphere. You can launch Maddog by holding cursor enable and uncage and with them both still held down pickle.
Hope that helps,
Yes, I know Maddog is not the advised launch mode, I was just practicing. In any case thank you, I was missing the uncage part! Now it works.
