Hey all. I’ve yet to purchase Falcon 4.0 let alone install BMS (I’m holding off until 4.33 is back up for download) as I’ve only recently been informed of its existence. As a serious DCS fan I’m very excited to get the game up and running and have been pouring over the existing documentation for the game in anticipation. What irks me at the moment however is the concept of employing multiple JDAMs with multiple targets in a single pass. I know that in reality the F-16 is capable of doing just that, at least in practice, and I’ve seen tutorials which use steerpoints and manual release mode to pickle of several individually targeted bombs very quickly. I’m also familiar with a very similar methodology in DCS A-10C, where you can program markpoints into the CDU and pickle off several JDAMs in CCRP, switching the SPI to a different markpoint between each release. However, in the case of BMS the release of JDAMs in manual mode has been referenced as being unrealistic, which makes sense, but I’ve also seen it stated that in 4.33 this workaround to having a properly implemented system for handling multiple JDAMs has been taken out.
Can I expect the ability to hit multiple targets with multiple JDAMs in a single pass in the future? If so, how might I expect to go about this?
I’m hoping this approach proves to be viable in BMS as traditionally in DCS some of the most fun I’ve had is using this tactic to take care of deep interdiciton missions swiftly.

Check the JDAM section in the Training Manual: Edit: Nevermind. Links are broken.
JDAM employment is a lot improved in 4.33
It was one thing I disliked in 4.32 but now it is implemented quite realistically and you can do pretty much what you are asking. So the answer is: Yes you can.
Set the steerpoints up in advance (or make marks if they aren’t preplanned) and just pickle, change steerpoint, pickle etc.

I saw this in the Avionics Configurator:
It’s only turned on for the Israeli F-16’s.
Doesn’t that basically let you set specific steerpoints for multiple JDAMs in the ICP?
Or am I not understanding this correctly?
