I'm about 5 hours in to this and I've detected what I think are some high flying drones (85k ft and 150knots) but the AIM-120D/AIM-9/ASRAM can't reach these, any idea on how to shoot them down?

You can't shoot them with any aircraft launched AAW weapons. The ceiling of the various types of AMRAAMs is 80,000 ft from memory.

The ship launched AAW weapons, SM-2 etc will get there when the ships are in range.

Without giving away too much, I was able to identify the type of UAV and once you realise the capabilities of these drones they aren't a threat if you play smart.

Theoretically, R-33/33S or AIM-54C should be able to reach the target at this altitude, and even higher.

None of those are in the scenario though ^.

You have to wait until a surface ship gets within range.

Can i use the AGM-154C and AGM-158A (because of the thin 0-2k FOG). Those weapons have an IR termination guide...

Thank's
Andy

Anyone have issues destroying island based structures beside SAM sites?
I can't target the airfield structures.

Hi ojms

you have detected a Chinese UAV,the Soar Dragon.In Command, its operational ceiling is wrong, it flies far too high.

Someone mentioned the problem on Steam that will be solved with Database build v474:
https://steamcommunity.com/app/321410/discussions/0/1697167355213435961/


The weapons that can make it go down much lower are RIM(SM-2,SM-3,SM-6) ... .

I don't know if this is the right spot for it instead of creating a brand new thread but for Air-Sea Battle, could the F/A-18s (mainly Es and Fs) that are stations in Australia, could I transfer them to the Nimitz and Eisenhower by any chance or should I just drop the idea.

You might be able to, but keep in mind Aussie pilots don’t train to land on ships so it isn’t super realistic.

Ah nuts. Good point. I wanted to strengthen carriers while taking the strain off the land-based tanker aircraft


Also after thinking about this, is this a good strategy in playing this scenario:

Go through Makassar Strait with most if not all the fleet and get in between the islands and the Philippines. Link two additional DDGs to the carriers to give them the most firepower needed and let them lead first before bringing up the rest of the ships. If willing to go for more manual control, assign two destroyers to each carrier group in an indirect manner (step by step control) and then put the destroyers in front the moment the carriers reach targeting position. Use Raptors after transferring them closer to the battle zone for screenings along with F-35s

Main aircraft complements
USS Nimitz and Eisenhower: F/A-18Cs (close in CAP support along with fighter cover for attack force), F/A-18 Es (escort for strike force), F/A-18Fs (strike force), F-35Cs (escort for strike and attack force)
.
USS America: F-35Bs (individual strike force reserve)
