As for the AIM120, I am getting inconsistent results. From the attached picture you can see the same aircraft firing 3 different missiles and each behaving differently. One wasn't guided by anything and it flew to the wrong location, the other was guided by the E2D, and the last one was guided by the F35 even though it still had all the sensors turned off.
I haven't had any misfires, but in each case the F-35's IRST took over guiding the missile as the drone was well within its range.
The only way I could get the CEC handoff to the E-2 was by disabling the IRST, and when I do the E-2 takes over as expected. Seems okay to me.
