Attached is a IFF helper guide

also this guy made a very handy video for those who like a video and audio learning experience to supplement the aforementioned document.

Here is another video for IFF that I found along with the other ramp start changes.

Used IFF enough yet to know which of these is worth putting on a hardware button?

I would say the IFF Master Switch in STDBY and NORM positions is useful (you‘ll need it in your rampstart procedure) and maybe the ICP IFF button (but I didn’t touch that as often as I thought).

Does BMS 434 model the Enemy AI ability to sense an IFF transmission? If so, I’m thinking a snooze (Standyby or attenuated) mode in the case of being stealthy for either an ambush or ground attack in a deep strike. Something like that I don’t want to fiddle with a mouse in a 2D cockpit whist flying in enemy territory. Now which function call to use...

The only thing you're going to need during flight is your TMS left to initiate an IFF query (if your aircraft is capable). The rest can be set up during ramp start. Only other need to mess with any of the stuff on the left panel would be in the case of an emergency; and we really aren't there yet. :)
