"SFW"

Post  La Ravenn! on Sat May 09, 2009 9:43 am

Pardon me if this was already asked for or requested before, but will the American faction have the SFW or Sensor Fused Weapon? I think it would be a great General Power to knock out vehicles in a given vicinity. For a more detailed source of info:



"The CBU-97/B Sensor Fuzed Weapon (SFW) is a 1,000 pound class, unpowered, air-delivered, wide area cluster munition designed to provide multiple kills per pass against armored and support vehicles. The system has been certified on the A-10, B-1, B-2, B-52, F-15, and F-16 and is designed to be compatible with various USN/USMC and NATO aircraft. The weapon has the capability of being delivered in adverse weather conditions, day or night, at various altitudes and airspeeds. SFW consists of a SUU-66/B Tactical Munitions Dispenser (TMD), which houses ten BLU-108/B submunitions. Each submunition contains four projectiles, an orientation and stabilization system, a radar altimeter, and a rocket motor. After spin-up and release from the submunitions, the projectiles scan the area under their flight path with a two-color passive infrared sensor, while a signal processing logic classifies and filters out false targets. Upon detecting a valid target, an electronic pulse detonates an explosive charge, driving an explosively formed penetrator (EFP), an aero-dynamically stable slug, into the target. The SFW will be stored and transported as an all-up-round in the CNU-411A/E container. For typical tactical sorties, a combat load consists of four to six CBU-97/Bs. The SFW can be delivered at low or high altitudes (200 feet above ground level (AGL) to 40,000 feet mean sea level (MSL) (with Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD) tail kit)) and at low through supersonic speeds (250-650 knots). The SFW program is closely related to the WCMD and Joint Standoff Weapon (JSOW) Programs. Retrofit of SFW with WCMD tail kits began in April 2001. All SFWs will be retrofitted with the WCMD tail kit and will become CBU-105s. The SFW BLU-108 submunition will be a payload in the JSOW AGM-154B. "

Also, I wanted to ask along with this question, would the B2 actually be stealth?

Hehe I think this would be AWESOME ingame. It would take a nice chunk of coding to pull off [I used to code big time]. But it would be awesome... especially in the objective based scenarios this mod strives to achieve. I honestly cant wait to try this mod... sooooo pumped

Cheers La Ravenn!, welcome on board Thumbs Up!

lol! Indeed, just like James mentioned we'll eventually include Sensor Fused Weapons on certain aircraft.
Some examples include certain versions of the F-15E and one variant of the A-10C.

Speaking of various aircraft variants, we will use a unique "Class System" so higher class units can have different weapon loads or specific upgrades, please check this topic for extra info. The class system will be adopted to be included for most unit classes (infantry, vehicles, aircraft, etc.) so expect highly customizable forces in The Art of War Thumbs Up!

We'll have tons of humvee versions as I hope to show soon enough sunny, if the POW system is included then chances are we may include ADS-equipped units (like the Humvee).

I'd say it's most likely (increasing the output should definitely fry a human being, or at least give a good tan Embarassed lol!).

Yeah, and if it's included then we'll use the Microwave Tank as a sort of a starting point (since it haves special effects and code which can be easily adapted and transformed into an ADS).
