Aim-9C and up are modeled wrong. Aim-9D should be all aspect

  1. They do not require lock on to launch.
  2. The Aim-9D and newer are all aspect (Not the L or the M and up).
  3. Aim-9D and newer have two modes. IR and RF tracking not just IR.

only against a target using afterburner… atleast finish reading the paragraph, btw it is already able to do it.

No entirely true, that is in IR mode. You can also use RF mode to target using RADAR instead. And this is all the way back to the Aim-9D. Not the L.

You also completely ignored how target lock is not required before launch.

Sounds much like red top all aspect.

I am sure they will find some excuse as to why they cannot model it correctly for the next 4 years.

Yeah I wouldn’t want them to change just the AIM-9C and D but ALL missiles currently modelled incorrectly in-game. Hopefully this is changes next major update but we can’t really rely on Gaijin and their disappointing releases.

A Short List of Missiles Incorrectly Modelled In-game:

  • Red Top obviously
  • SRAAM, longer range and all aspect
  • Magics and their 50g overload

I have made bug reports but they fall on deaf ears. How much more do they need other than pages out of declassified flight manuals like I have been showing?

They straight up lied to me about the Aim-54C. They said it can go Mach 5+ (like its specs) but I found in the game code its locked to M4.2… they lied straight up.


You should do a bug report maybe devs will add it.Anyways it would be a great change

50g’s is the combined plane g-load, not single which is what is used in game.

No it’s not in-game, this was already recommended and they were basically told “you need more reliable sources”. Basically meaning it’s not in-game.

Many sources though claim it can pull 50g without any plane g-load.
