Is there an updated Weapon Delivery Planner 3.7.3 manual?
I have just downloaded WDP 3.7.3 and am trying to learn its workings. I have found a copy of the WDP ver 2.0 manual, however there has are obviously been some updates between ver 2.0 and the later 3.7.3 build that I don´t have information on. I wonder if there is a more up to date version of the manual available anywhere?
Specifically I am trying to work out how to create PPT´s for my data cartridge. I have worked out how to create a PPT for an SA2 site for example, however I am unsure how to assign specific targets within that site. More specifically, I am wondering how to create a PPT for the Fan Song or an individual SA2 within the site? I have noticed there is a ‘Targets’ Tab under the ‘Datacard’ tab and imagine this is the place to do it, but I cannot seem to find the targets I am looking for in the list, and also cannot seem to find an area to enter the specific coordinates (that I found from reconing a site in game).
Any help greatly appreciated!
What you want to do is create a precision steerpoint for the Fan song.
This you can easily do in BMS
RightClick on the SA 2 battalion and select recon.
Select the fan song out of the list and set the desired waypoint (e.g. 15) and click on assign. Now waypoint 15 is a precision steerpoint on the fan song.
Last, but important, click on save DTC.
Jump into your pit and if you select steerpoint 15 (after you loaded your DTC of course) you find its exactly on the fan song
BMS Manual Chapter 6.2 PREPLANNED THREATS (page 75) also takes you step by step through this process, with accompanying screenshots. As Snowman mentioned above it’s by far the easiest method for creating PPTs.
In the WDP release thread you can find the first 2 of a 10 part youtube tutorial.
Yes, this one is also a little bit older already, but still helpfull.
First off, thank you Snowman and Darkman, appreciate your fast response.
I probably should have explained that I am aware of the method you describe in order to create a precision steer in BMS and have done this many times. However, I find that if I make a mistake on a campaign mission or am shot down etc, I like to discard the mission and replay it. Because I must then go and recon targets again, create new threat circle etc, I decided it was time to learn how to use WDP as I had heard that this program allows you to save this sort of information so you can replay a mission without having to do this over again?
Do you guys know if it is possible to assign individual targets in WDP as opposed to an entire SA2 site, for example? I can see there is a ‘Targets’ tab, but can’t work out how to use it?
Thanks again guys
Thanks Falcas, I didn’t see your post before for some reason? I will have a look at those tutorials.
