They were surprised by the PAF F-16s firing their American AMRAAM missiles from so far that their own radar/computer/missiles were not able to give them a "firing solution
Now check the range (or better yet, have your spotter do it) and instantly the firing solution
appears on the tablet or phone.
Its sophistication is demonstrated by its ability to fire seven rounds with the firing solution
automatically adjusted so that all rounds impact simultaneously on the same target.
I also predict scopes will give a firing solution
for your target as well.
Once the dot is in place, the optic calculates the firing solution
using input from the sensors and rangefinder, runs it all through the ballistic calculator and tracking engine, then waits for the shooter to depress the trigger and put the crosshairs onto the dot/tag.
Note that a laser rangefinder on the attacking platform can determine an extremely accurate range to the target, providing a very tight firing solution
, which complicates the task of any countermeasures approach.
The necessary changes to the firing solution
are determined and controlled entirely by the system without need for action by the crew of two.
These enhanced capabilities cover navigation and positioning; digitized integrated networked command and control; automatic loading, automated firing solution
computation and gun laying, and improved ammunition.
Data, including target range, can be input in Imperial or metric units, the weapon profile also includes the scope Moa/mrad per click data which allows the app to provide the firing solution
up to 3000 meters, showing how many clicks have to be used on the scope to compensate for the current conditions.
Time into operation from pulling the hand-brake typically hovers over the 30-second mark and boils down to flinging the vehicle's roof doors open, punching the autolaying button (coordinates will have already been keyed into the fire control system and the firing solution
computed), dropping the round into the loading cradle and voila.
