No matter how hard I try I cannot get an ultralight to fit small missiles. According to the description it should allow max up to level 1 missiles (which I assume are small missiles).

It is listed that light aircraft are able to fit up to level 2 missiles, and it indeed does allow me to fit both small and medium missiles.

So there's definitely a bug here somewhere - either the description for ultralight aircraft is wrong or something causes me to not be able to fit small missiles on them.

Last time I looked at stats it was better to use machineguns anyway - was that fixed?

Oh - and helicopters can get much better dogfighting stats! A lot of stuff needs adjusting.

Unlike machineguns, missiles don't take an attack penalty in the first few combat rounds in air combat, so they get a first strike advantage.

its a maximum limit, not a minimal assured placement.

And if the ultralight does not support the weight of the missile it cannot be installed.

sorry there.

What's actually preventing missiles/rockets from being installed on ultralights is not the weight, it's that in the SE_Airforce -> Flex Model Type Choices table, out of fixed-wing aircraft, the smallest missiles & rockets are only set to be available to model types 102 to 109, ultralights being model type 101.
