As far as carrier ops, I am still not clear what this gauge actually does. What I understand is that moving (AI) carriers in FSX -either "placed" in game using Aircraftcarriers2 by Lamont Clark or with pre-set carrier tracks - cannot have any working navaids (a fixed carrier can have an AFCAD=airport= see it on the map/GPS/ILS etc . .) BUT this gauge emulates or simulates a TACAN or similar signal such that it shows the direction and distance (?) to the carrier to the pilot. Especially useful in IFR and/or night conditions and more generally as it can be hard to find "the bloody boat" even in good visibilty in FSX. Have experienced the same or similar gauge in the Smudge Hornet.
Ideally I would lke to install the gauge in a 2D panel and/or VC and be able to find the Javier Nimitz class and Clemenceau boats. Is this possible and what does one need to do?
Thanks in advance,
