View Full Version : How do you use the tiny tims?

Well the corsair has the tiny tim loadout and they are REALY powerfull but how do you use'm properly? I mean I can't get them to hit 80% of the time.

when you "fire" them they release fall for like half a second and then ignite. So I think I have to aim "over" the target but I don't realy know.

Any advice would be welcome

yeah, dont know about their historical use, were they anti-ship rockets? They sure pack a punch though.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I guess its just a lot of testing with the different distances and lines in the gunsight. Probable the second line from the inside.
Are they meant to be fired right above sealevel maybe? I suppose they are good at killing carriers. Will have to try that.

if you want a 90% hit ratio then fire from directly above. even when the rockets run out of propellant they will still have velocity which will minimize the effects of gravity. (assuming they are not fired 100% downwards).

i dont have PF yet, but as you explain they drop before they fire up, this may make it harder if u drop down on a target, as any inaccuracy will by magnified by the drop, then the firing in the wrong direction...so make sure http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

after seeing the 'france-simulation' video about the corsair and 'tiny-tim rockets' I did a google search for info.
it never got used in action as it came out too late, but would have been a useful anti-ship weapon... exocet from the '40's
I would try it from 300m height, launch and break away out of AAA reach 1000m out

teh big baby had 3m length, 30cm in diameter, >500kg total weight and cca 70kg explosive warhead (Russian RS series had barely few kg). It can sink small Japanese carrier in PF. Its effect is close to 500lb bomb.

The fire reticle on the corsair consist of two rings. Just aim below the inner ring and above the outher ring, aim exactly inbetween that small line.

A bit of practice makes your aim perfect.

The drop of the tiny tim rockets is actually a safety mechanism. The tiny tim has a big rocket engine and the blast from it could damage the launching aircraft. According to this website: http://www.eugeneleeslover.com/USNAVY/CHAPTER-11-C.html
