Question regarding Silent Threat Reborn: Forced Hand
So, I am a little confused about this mission. First, I target the Repulse's engines and order my wing to disable the target. Not a problem, we disable it. Then it pops up disarm. I target the subsystem weapons and order my wing to disarm target. I completely take the weapons system to 0% and cycle through all the rest of the subsystems. There is no other weapons, laser turret, missile launcher ect. But, the objective never gets completed. How do I get it done?

Also, I cannot target anything but the Repulse using H. So I have fighters shooting at me with no way to target and take care of them and I subsequently end up dieing. Anyone have a suggestion?

Re: Question regarding Silent Threat Reborn: Forced Hand
Are you using 'K' to target turrets? 'S' only targets main subsystems.

And you have to use visual targeting on the Lokis. They're stealth fighters, remember?

No problem. It's one of those things that should have been covered in training. Try looking through the Controls options menu--there's tons of targeting controls you've probably never discovered (like Target Target's Attacker.)

Turret targetting is covered in training, at least in FS2.

Re: Question regarding Silent Threat Reborn: Forced Hand
Target Ship in Reticle (default 'Y') is a particularly useful one, and its analogue Target Turret in Reticle (default 'V') is handy for taking out a particular beam cannon in a hurry.

Huh. I never knew about the 'v' command. :nervous:
