Hey Guys, A word from the developer to clear up a few mis-information posts on the ED forums about the Hawk.
The Hawk in DCS does currently have TACAN, VOR and ILS Navigation which is the staple for any modern day trainer in military use. There is also a ground based taxi-around-the-runway mission in Training on Caucasus map that shows you how to use the nav radios and HSI indicators. We also have a NavEx mission in the Nevada map, included in the module, along with a time-on-target mission (short flight and long flight) which again you can use navaids for if you wish to.
We also have modelled terrain masking, so if you're behind the mountain as an example, you'll lose the beacon.
The flight manual with the module is very detailed on how to use the radio navigation.
It has been reported currently (mid August 2018) that the radio nav isn't working with the latest patch which we are looking into. That said, all of the above functionality is coded into the module and will be available when the bug is fixed.
The Grim Reapers also recently put out a YouTube video on the Hawk weapons functionality and how to use it (graphics are the old cockpit): youtu.be/pLTmc9HsucI
Working on another RAF virtual reality motion platform project. This time for RAF STEM 100. You can come along and see/fly the system this year at the September Duxford Battle of Britain air show in Air and Space hangar in a few weeks time, details in the link below.
