Lately, I see quite a few players starting to pick up that some Russian IR missiles seem to fly straight and acquire targets later. Specifically, this includes missiles with a high launch speed such as the R-24T and, to a less extent, the R-60Ms.
What I mean is that you can literally shove a missile down someone’s throat in a head-on before the missile even has time to react to flares. The missile seems to refuse flare acquisition for a short moment after launch. Is this how the missiles are normally supposed to work or is it a glitch in the system?
