Skyflash issue

Can someone please explain to me why the Skyflash barely ever hits it’s target? It says on the wiki for the premium Phantom that “Skyflash missiles also have a tendency to not detonate or lose track at the last second” and I have experienced this multiple times, does anyone know why this happens?

I very, very rarely manage to hit anything with a skyflash. Out of 30 shots I’ll probably get one hit. If that.

true the premium f4j uk is just pathetic, no spey engines, no agile eagle, no hmd, no aim7F. I’d say that it’s the worse phantom after f4c . At least F4E/F doesn’t have to get slaughtered by 12.3 jets

it isn’t bad, but it’s very… situational.

I once launched a SkyFlash at an F-16 6 km head on, same level as me at about angels 5, it didn’t move or even chaff and my missile… missed?
