Manual typo that needs correcting

BMS Manual, page 131, (188.8.131.52) - Incoming camera
Incorrectly shown as the ‘6’ number key press. Should be ‘7’.
Also, ‘Shift 6’ on page 132 (184.108.40.206) should be ‘Shift 7’.
The ‘6’ number key press is correctly shown for ‘Tgt to Self’ camera (page 129, 220.127.116.11)
After several years, I now need to update my signature block!
[edit RD: Corrected next version]

34-1-1, page 109 I noticed an inconsistency in the scenario. Initially the lase time is stated as 20 seconds before impact and later it says 30 seconds before impact. Not too important, doesn’t affect an actual procedure, just inconsistent.
Scenario 1 – Fixed Target, One Pass
In the first example, we will be hitting a nuclear plant with 2 GBU-10s rippled in pairs from 22,000 ft and we have precise lat/longs for the target entered into our STPT 5. We have our LASR page set to start automatically lasing the target 20 seconds prior to impact. We will want to leave our radar in GM mode with STP/TGT (steer point/target) mode selected. That will allow our GM radar to point/aim at the selected steer point when we switch to it making it easy to find our target. We’re 20 nm from the target and we’ve acquired the plant on the radar. We’ve locked it up in GM STT. Next, DMS (display management switch) down/aft to get the sensor of interest (the big box on the outside of the MFD) on the TGP MFD.
With the SOI box on the TGP page, TMS forward (or TMS right) to ground stabilize the TGP in AREA track. You should see the target and now can refine your slew to the target you desire to hit. Select Master Arm on, make sure the laser is armed and ensure you’ve got the proper munitions selected that you’re going to drop on the target. Follow the normal delivery cues as necessary and drop the munitions. Be careful not to maneuver too aggressively and mask the target or make the TGP go into RATES tracking. If it does, you will have to refine your slew again. A good technique is to make a gentle turn away from the target toward your egress direction to keep it more off to the side rather than underneath your jet. But there shouldn’t be a problem with over flying the target either if that is what is required. You’re eyeballing your TGP while also looking outside clearing for threats. Thirty seconds prior to impact your laser should fire and provide terminal guidance to the bomb. Impact. You can now TMS aft to break AREA track and command the TGP to the FCR line-of-sight (LOS). You can exit AG mm and egress.
