this we can see that our radar is scanning from zero to 24,000ft.
have placed the radar cursors over the target at which point
the altitude of the target
is displayed (13,000ft).
we have determined already, the 2 sets of figures over the
bullseye circle is the bullseye position of your radar cursors,
hence the position of the bugged target is bullseye 57 degrees
can use this to pass on the information to other flight members
giving bullseye position and altitude of your target. You
may also be given the position of a target by another flight
member, at which point you can simply move your radar cursors
to that position.
you have put in the effort to learn bullseye, how can you
best apply it to online flying? Here are a few tips given
to me by Minstrel.
in the new F4 patcher, you will find a patch that changes
bullseye calls back to BRA (bearing, range & altitude)
once your target is within 25 miles of your position. This
means that you won't have to make bullseye decisions in the
heat of battle. (This is not a cheat because that's the way
it's done in real life but there will be many occasions in
the game when you will need to find bullseye positions outside
of 25 miles. I would recommend that you do not apply this
patch until you have learnt bullseye correctly as the test
to pass this topic will not make allowances for it.).
your mission brief, you can sketch your route and steer points
onto your grid. This will narrow down the area in which you
have to look with regard to bullseye calls.
has a range limitation however. Outside of the 100-mile ring,
the range calls from AWACS are in increments of 100 miles.
Hence a target at 140 miles range from bullseye will be called
as 100 miles, a target at 220 miles will be called as 200
miles etc. However it is rare that we will find ourselves
outside of the 100-mile radius.
the bullseye trainer (2.5 MB). Thus you can train bullseye
calls without having to start Falcon 4.0.
use the bullseye trainer. Excellent document on how to
use the bullseye trainer.
