[Logged] SA-23B never fires at B-52 at 36K because of insufficient reflection

Post by BDukes »

Hi guys

Something up with the SA-23 in that the SA-23B won't fire at a B-52 at 36K. Manual firing dialog says insufficient reflection. SA-23A fires no problem. Might be a different illuminator thats more in line with the missiles range. Search radar might be off as well although not causing the issue. Russians are good at SAMS not sure they'd have a missile that would outrange the paired radar (anybody?)

Load scenario and observe.

Yup db updated needed in that regard.
4818 sa-23 illuminator caps at 80nm. It's the only authorized director for it.

Guessing the A model was added first and when B came along nobody noticed the illuminator needed updating for the range to 120nm, or another one created and paired.

You other option to make use of the range is using buddy-illumination feature. ie create some unit around it ~40nm out with just illuminators (hint they can be underground\invisible) on it, then you can use the max range.
