I am playing the scenario Liancourt Rocks and the Wang Geon [#2385 DDH 978 Wang Geon [KDX-2 Mod]
(South Korea - 2014)] has fired several RIM-66M-2 at my Flight Utter 7 which are a pair of F-15Js.
I appear to be outside the range of the SAMs. Looking in the DB it shows the range of the RIM-66M-2
to be 50nm. From the save the F-15Js are well outside that range. I was wondering if I am
missing some info that allows the RIM-66M-2 to shoot beyond the missile's stated range.
PS: Command v1.01 Build 1121.8
Database figure might be typing error.
Online search gives: Range: 40 to 90 nmi (74 to 170 kilometers)
Straight from the US Navy:

That might explain it.
