Default Warm up time on jets

It should be removed.

There is simply no point in having it because you cant take off immidiately anyway. Now you have to wait for the warm up time, and then start taxing the jet to the runway and then again wait for the engine to get ready for takeoff.

The 30 sec wait before you can start taxing is just overkill IMO.

Yay on nay?

the 30 seconds is good imo, as it makes the Pilot think a little; is any1 in the way? is the Runway intact? Is there a tosser putting C4 on me?

at the very least it means everyone around the Jet knows its about to taxi and they should keep out of the way.

Taxiing? I believe there are fighters ready to go at a moment's notice when within the theater of operations.

i HIGHLY doubt it , the planes would be in hangers ect and need taxing

There is a hangar that points straight down the run way.

When I was in Qatar a few years back they had fully armed jets just sitting there with the pilots in them waiting to take off. You know why? Because when there is a call for air support they want the jet in the air as soon as possible. They don't want to wait for the damn thing to roll out of the hangar and drive around the run way.

IRL jets take ages to get ready, which is probably why those ones u saw were set to go at a moment's notice?

but in PR their are no ground crews coordinating arming and prep of the jet, and there are no checks the pilot has to do either to the mechanics of the aircraft, so a 30second wait to make sure you aint gonna just blow the jet up on the ground isn't unreasonable

Wouldn't it depend on the airport a little too? I imagine there are a fair few airports where hangers are at the end of runways, but that's not always gonna be the case so some taxing will be involved alot of the time.

i'd rather wait 30seconds and sort out tactics while my jets warming up and on the ground, than trying to use squad voip and take off at the same time. I usually bump into things while taxiing and talking at the same time...

30 seconds is a spawn time. Although you should be able to Taxi immediatly, don't know if they finally fixed the rest of the jets for that.
