Modern jets tend to be.
(plz check the comment i replied to, me wanna know >< )
Assuming you mean IEEE X band, so NATO I/J band. That would be useful against a large number of A2A radars. Now you’d need to know if its tracking side and or main lobe. To be honest I’m struggling to see how useful it could be in ARB given the amount of I band transmissions it would basically lose its mind attempting any kind of tracking.
I can see why it was abandoned.
funnily enough ,it was up for export just until last month, after that they removed it.
possibly it could lock onto not only a band but also a frequency but at long ranges it might get spooked especially in a target rich environment.
but if we fire it blindly it could lock onto a target at a later flight stage and intercept given it had enough time and energy to execute the move
Funny enough,… we have a button to shut down our radars, and will have AIM-120’S or MICA-ER far more reliables
If we see sich missile in the air, we only have to shut down our radar after launch of 1/2 FOX-3’s, then turn 5° out to avoid being in the path of the missile.
So,… basically AIM-54A’s are far more reliable at this point.
thats the issue… you wont. they dont make any RWR warning and they have BVR range, so no, eyeball mark 1 wouldnt be able to detect those
Well → it is easy to understand that such missiles is send at you,…
I would definetly pick you up on radar before you launch your missile, therefore, knowing you’re there.
If i do not see any missiles coming at me, why would i think you’re not using ARM’s?
Therefore, i can do a quick launch of Fox-3, shut radar down, and go for defensive.
well fox 3 int in game yet (except pheonix)
- I launch an ARM and dive before detection (not probable but not impossible) (keep in mind this is a true fire and forget missile)
- I launch ARM but there are others on my team high up aswell who launch SARH, so you think only SARH
- I launch ARM and follow up with SARH, ARM reaches you before SARH assuming you dont go cold.
the basic function of this missile is like a front aspect only IR missile. it relies on its stealth and the target either forgetting or making a mistake. which as we know we do not have a shortage of at top teir
ARM won’t be in game without Fox-3’s that quite certain at this point.
if you launch SARH and ARM, i can go full blind and cold,…
i already do that in F-16’s vs MiG-29’s, and i end up killing them on guns/AIM9L
