Hello,

Here's one I've been meaning to ask about for a while now. Quite often when I'm using missiles like AMRAAM or Phoenix, which have an active radar terminal homing phase, my missile will act like mini-AWACS, and detect enemy AAMs that have just been fired at me.



While I suppose the seeker on these missiles can theoretically register small targets such as an incoming AAM, I've never heard that they have the ability to send back information on new contacts in any meaningful way. My understanding is that the terminal homing phase is almost entirely autonomous, perhaps with the ability to send back an "I've got it!" message when they see something that matches their intended target. Sending a detailed contact report back on a new contact as they go flashing past each other at a closing rate of Mach 8 seems a trifle optimistic!

I know that in game this sort of early warning of missile launches can be very handy for dodging incoming shots, but I suspect this is information the pilots would never actually have. Would it be better to have active AAMs not display new contacts of this nature, leaving us without information we shouldn't have? What do you think?

Hi Andy

This issue has been reported before and its on our list. We are well aware of the issue.

These kinds of thing happen not because of anybody's ignorance but because this is a very complicated game with lots going on and by fixing one thing we may break much more important models. We'll try our best to fix it when we get there.

Thanks!

Mike

Hi Mike,

Hadn't meant this one to be in tech support! I was sure I had put it into the general forum just as a discussion point to see what other people thought. Sorry for the mistake.

I completely understand that the more special exceptions you add, the more opportunities for complications there are.

Andrew

Hi Andy

No worries. Shifted here because this is where we look for these things. Helps us track stuff.

Thanks for understanding on the bug thing.

Mike
