YE-ZB was a Top Secret WW2 US Navy system developed by Frank Akers for homing aircraft to their carriers. This bundle includes two aircraft equipped with the necessary gauges to simulate the YE-ZB system. It is similar to the US Radio Range system, but with changes to make the system usable only by the US, while not increasing the vulnerability of the carriers to detection and direction finding. At the start of WW2 all US carriers were equipped with a UHF device called the "YE" which transmitted a Morse code letter denoting a 15 degree arc of a circle with the carrier at its center. Navy aircraft used the AN/ARR-2 UHF homing receiver (sometimes called "ZB"). Pilots were given daily information so they would know which direction corresponded to each Morse letter. By Dave Bitzer.

This is the FSX version of the YE-ZB Navigation system. The main difference between the FS9 andFSX versions is that FSX supports "moving" carriers. Moving Carriers add a lot of realism to the simulation.

Unzip the ye-zb5_db.zip file to a convenient folder. The folder will contain the "ye-zb_installation_insructions.txt" file. It also has a "ye-zb_information.htm" file that will have other help you may want to refer to from time to time.

The critical gauge, in a folder titled "zb", is not "cabbed" so you may change the location of the fixed YE transmitters by text editing. I will be happy to do this for you if you email me the location you want a stationary carrier or ground YE transmitter to be moved to. The moving carriers are much more difficult to "move". Also, several options for additional add-on files if you want to increase the realism are suggested, along with links to more reference data.

The included "README rcbco-30.txt" file has useful background information. I have, with permission, pre-installed the rcbco-30 features (catapult launch and tail hook landing) in the two aircraft included in this package for your convenience.
