IRIS-T sucks at range! Its worse than old AIM-9NP!
I found it quite funny. I was playing around with the missiles while i found strange thing.
Old AIM-9NP has better range than IRIS-T.
The max range looks like the same but look at no escape evelope, poor beeper aka AIM-9NP has better no escape evelope than IRIS-T.
Note than IRIS-T is new fancy missile with FPA sensor, thrust vectoring and super high off boresight!
AIM-9NP is a poor beeper thing. It has nothing. No thrust vectoring. No FPA sensor, not even all aspect! No off borersight. Sucky tracking rate, sucky low field of wiev… Not even bore/slave nor SEAM! But this old fart has better motor?
Really? Is it correct? Because i feel like using drunk men’s missile when using IRIS-T.
^^ While IRIS-T suck the duck (yes, duck, bomber is a duck!) AIM-9NP is inside no escape evelope and is ready to kill the duck!
BTW: IRIS-T means Idiotic Range Infrared Sucker - Thrustless
i assume that the IRIS-T is maybe newer and can fly faster than an AIM-9, but since it’s smaller, it has a smaller engine and is worse on range than the AIM-9…
Also, some research in the web might answers your question

The IRIS-T wasnt revamped yet, but this can be easily remedied.
So you means that its a bug and not the correct behavior?
That what i was guessing.
Can you tell me how to edit it to get correct performance and will it cause problems in MP?
it means that pretty much all the popular (i.e common) AA missiles were overhauled for 4.33. IRIS-T had somehow slipped below the radar.
it is still using it’s old 4.32 FM which is kinda wrong
It would be fixed for one of the future versions.
Ok, so, waiter must be patient
