If F-16C Block 50 can get SARH missiles, even though it couldnt guide them, I think the J8F also should get SARH missiles
F-16C can guide AIM-7F/M by using HPRF PD illuminate. Not need to have CW illuminator
The thing is F-16C Block 50 could guide AIM-7F and its newer versions without CW illuminator
You guys can simply just change J8F into j8H so that the aircraft can use PL11 right and proper.
If gaijin could change the block number of the f16c for a more reasonable armament solution, it would have done the same for the j8f, and they should have changed the J8f to J8H in the Last version update
I’d imagine that changing a whole version of the aircraft isn’t as easy as changing the block number
I think dev don’t need to consider SARH PL-11 on J-8F but could add J-8H with IR PL-5E & PL-8 and medium-range SARH PL-11 in tech tree before J-8F
The F-16C block 50 can guide them using HPRF PD illumination.
The F-16C-50 had the ability to guide AIM-7s, it wanst common however due to prevalence of AMRAAM
@Stona_WT Please consider it, this could save j8 for china until december
yes，China need it
Read the dev post for this jet, it was explained in that thread
