Bro the R27ER is so overpowered. The amount of times I’m in rb or sb and I fire a sparrow BEFORE the R27 and the sparrow either self destructs, veers off of target, or just straight up misses, while still keeping a constant lock on the target.
And then I get slammed in the face with an unexpected R27, even when flying 90º from the target. The AIM-7F is honestly better than the 7M, and I would prefer it any day.
I just find myself using all sidewinders because of how inaccurate sparrows are.
He’s talking about radar missiles. The 27ER is much better than anything else in the game by a large margin. Having used both top tier IR missiles, I prefer the R-73, so I’m not sure what your point was anyway.
You can defeat the ER much like the 7M, and it’s something everyone does. You aren’t going to fare much better against 7M if you fly high. R73 HOBS advantage is completely nullified at the moment by being broken, whereas the 9M can be practically impossible to flare on certain situations with current parameters in place.
Complaining about the ER and mostly playing USA (not talking about anyone specific) is the most hypocritical thing ever. Currently it’s the only advantage the warsaw pact countries have over nato, and they are limited to 2x per airframe.
in certain cases you are just dead. That’s the simple answer. But to claim that this game is “only balanced if you play Russia” is factually wrong. The best plane in the game and by a large margin is the F-16C. I would suggest just not engaging the enemy in situations where their superior radar missiles can be employed.
