Description: The Sispre C7 was an Italian Infra Red guided air to air missile. The Missile was made during the fifties when Italy was considering that if a war broke out weapons and aircraft coud not be supplied from the USA so it was asked to the Italian industries to make various Italian counterparts to the american weapons in service. Sispre was made under this conditions. In the first place contract was assigned to contraves in 1957 but it was later assigned to a subsidiary of Fiat and Finmeccanica, Sispre (Società Italiania Sviluppo Propulsone a Reazione). The missile had an unusual design compared to the foreign counterparts. It was short, with two large wings in the center and four small wings in the tail. The Company made is as a simple, cheap, reliable and fast to manufacture weapons, that was easy to produce and to integrate on various aircraft with very low efforts. The Company in the 1961 after 4 years of development ended it’s development. Only few quantity were made (around 200 units), and they were all in service from the 1961 to the 1962. With those limited and small numbers, The C7 was equipped and tested on various aircraft, G91, CL13 MK4, F86K and F84G 21 RE. Unfortunatly the development of the missile was eventually stopped and all a good part of the information was lost. Talking about it’s performance, only a small part of info are avaible since as said before, many of them were lost. The C7 manouvred thanks to a pair of trapezoidal wings on the center of the missile and 4 smaller fins on the tail of the missile (all those wings were hidraulically moved). In the front, the infra red seeker was behind a small glass panel. Thanks to it’s long range seeker, the C7 was able to be launched at a target at 10 km avway. it was also able to lock and follow the target with a relativly big error of firing angle. The rocket propeller allowed the missile to travel for it’s 6.2 km range with a max speed of more than mach 2.5. A very interesting part was about the warhead that had a weight of 55 lb that was quite a lot for a missile of it’s size.

Why it should be in the game: it will make more unique various aircraft in the Italian TT (F96K and F84G for example) while also increasing by a lot theyr performance.

Although it’ll be very hard to see in game, more unique Italian made weapon systems for Italian vehicles in game are needed badly. The Sispre and also things such as the Medusa rockets are armaments which would make the Italian tech tree even more unique and fun to play.

Absolutely yes. I really want more variety in the missiles available to aircraft, especially really early ones like this. Bonus points as this is obscure and domestic to Italy. +1 for all possible aircraft.

That’s going to be the big issue here.

The only not know thing actually seem to’ be the G pull. Gaijin could easily invent since they alredy done It various time

+1, would add more uniqueness to the rank 5 Italian aircraft.

If we compare it to other AAM’s during the same timeframe that the Sispre C7 is being developed (i.e the AIM-9B & Firestreak) i think adding the max G pull of either of the two could work as a placeholder until we find the C7’s G pull characteristics

+1 for the boom stick!

+1, would help set apart the Italian aircraft from their counterparts. In regards to missing data, I don’t see why it cannot be calculated

Really hope for this missile to come, even with something like 7G pull it will help Italian fighters greatly to at least force enemies that run away to bleed some energy avoiding this.

We should long ago get whole set of early AA missiles. Like AIM4, AAM-1 and AAM-2, RS-1U(K-5),R-4, R-8, AA-25 Nord, Ru 344 X-4. Yes, they are crap, but AIM-9B also. This not stop anybody from using them if nothing better is aviable.

Having Authentic missile developed in italy would be great, so long as Gaijin doesn’t fuck it up
