I don’t know if it’s better or worse than a Rank IX-esque april fools

Great if that was planned and we are going with planned stuff then every vehicle should get that treatment. So russia got selective treatment with a vehicle. Then i suggest if thats the case give JA37D the HMD and IRST it had, not planned and give the j35a the RB24J’s it had not the fake rb24’s and give the mig 23bn its counter measures. And so on and so on. Again planned stuff shouldnt be selective, it should apply to all or none.

Did I ever say it should be selective?

Finally someone said it

Dont care, yak 141 is fine where its at, i think its a good competitor to the f-14 so getting stuff that it never had is dumb. Planned=didnt have.

Grasscutting always save you so the ARH missles pointless in this form.
R77 overlofting looks
AIM120A and another missles works so so

T80U and B left the chat.

PL-12 is too modern compared to the Aim-120 and R-77, please remove it. İn service since 2005.

Or how about adding more modern amraams and R-77 models? That would be much better considering France is getting MICA and Israel is getting DERBY missiles.

It’s not meant to be a competitor to the F-14, wut. The F-14 was envisioned as an extremely long-range fleet defence fighter that was meant to shoot down bombers and long-range cruise missiles. The Yak-141 was meant to be a VTOL naval fighter capable of landing on the aviation cruisers of the Soviet Navy.

Also if you’re going to go scorched earth with the “dont give countries stuff they didnt have” route, then you need to remove the F-16AJ, and a number of armaments from various planes in the game. Also you’d have to remove the R-60s from the Yak then, as it was mostly relegated to heli service by the time of the 141’s development.

I also think the Yak-141 is good where its at now, but it could go to 12.3, receive its R-73s, R-77s, and R-27EA/EM, and still be fine there. It has limited hardpoints, gun ammo, and one gimmick for low speed (<500km/h) fighting.

Fr, while I generally don’t like skipping aircraft capabilities in this case Gaijin just needs to jump to the Su-27SM, F-15 MSIP, Typhoons, etc because the current aircraft just aren’t balanced not to mention Japan, Italy, and Germany having nothing at the moment.

From the first couple of battles playing, all missiles are really mid to poor performance. As someone stated before, they loft and then overshoot the target and then come down. I am guessing that is a bug though. They lose lock way to easily. I have also noticed when they get to lower speed, they spin out like how the R-73 did when it was first on the dev server.
