I was playing a recent scenario featuring MiG-31s, and noticed that the AA-9s don't seem to be working, with some odd behaviors... First, flying head-on toward an F-15, until you're about 50 nmi away, the weapon launch screen (shift-F1) says "No directors are able to illuminate this target". The MiG-31 has an immensely powerful radar, and the F-15 has a 5.8 sq m frontal RCS; it seems strange that the MiG-31 isn't able to launch its primary weapon against large fighters until well within the AMRAAM envelope.
Then, as you get closer than 50 nmi, the launch screen says "Target is out of the weapon's DLZ", and it keeps saying that until you're within minimum range (4 nmi). In fact there's a few miles where you can launch an AA-11 at the target but not the AA-9, so something seems off with the DLZ calculation...
Finally, in the attached test scenario, I also added a B-52 at the same range as the F-15. The AA-9 can be launched against the B-52 at maximum range, but the missiles miss every time, and once they do, subsequent launch attempts show the "out of DLZ" message, so something strange seems to be happening.
I think I'm running the latest version after the Steam update this morning: v1.14 Build 998.11, on Windows 7. Please let me know if you need any other info.
