This was a difficult tutorial for me to complete. For whatever reason after releasing from station 3 the autopilot was failing completely to keep the right wing raised when switching to steerpoint 6 for the second release. It still does it for me now to a certain extent, but after many attempts I had something workable. That might have something to do with being tighter on RMAX 2 at release.
I would say that in practical terms, JDAM would be the weapon of choice in inclement conditions. If there's cloud cover over the target JDAM would be the choice over a laser guided bomb. But in fair conditions laser guided is a good choice, especially if JDAM supplies are short.
