Friendlies On The SA Page
TSHv4 changes the way the SA MDI page D/L (datalink) functionality works. In the stock Jane's F/A-18, there were two options for the datalink status: ON and OFF. When the datalink was ON, the "D/L" indication on the MDI was boxed and enemy/neutral contacts detected by AWACS were shown on the SA display. When the datalink was OFF, the "D/L" indication was not boxed and no contacts were shown on the SA display.
In TSHv4, there are four datalink options: DL0, DL1, DL2, and DL3. The relevant MDI pushbutton will cycle through these four options. DL0 is equivalent to the original datalink OFF ("D/L" not boxed). DL1 is equivalent to the original datalink ON ("D/L" boxed). DL2 displays only friendly contacts on the SA page, while DL3 shows all contacts (friendly/neutral/hostile). This allows a much easier determination of where friendlies are located in the operating area.
The updated SA page is included by default with TSH v4 and requires no user options.
