Hate to highjack thread ;), but is there any possibility to set turbulence on higher altitudes, i.e. for AAR? Somehow above 20K it doesn’t work for me.

RE: AIM-9X Performance
I’m with thereisnotime here.
Is 9X operationally proven? No. There are theory, calculations, tests, and statements.
But it wasn’t used in big numbers against peer opponent. With no operational experience, basically, everything is based on assumptions so far. And whatever technology is, history has proven many times that assumptions may be catastrophically wrong. If someone doesn’t want look back and consult history, so it be. But USAF has been blamed for its over-reliance on technology many times for reason.
Bottom line is - we have seen a lot of wunderwaffe so far. Not all of them lived to promise. So why to assume that 9X is holy invincible weapon?
Anyway, prudent pilots, who one day may use those weapons in real combat, aren’t thinking of modern short range missiles as unbeatable ones, because it’s them, who will put their life on line at the end. And they are much more conservative in such thing than us, virtual pilots.

Cool, but we are such nerds!
RE: AIM-9X Performance
Until there is a big war, and despite all those papers and extensive tests, it’s unclear how missile will perform in RL operational scenario. Like in Vietnam, in Iraq (9M against “crude” Russian flares) and recently in Syria (9X against same Russian flare), there might be some unpleasant surprises.
So, who really knows how those missiles will perform? Everything is only assumptions.
Also, at least some time ago, in training USAF counted as a kill 2 valid 9X “shots”.
RE: SA-10 behaviour
you guys like the beatles too much
I red they used supersonic Rampage missile (4x per single F16) + of course terrain coverage and perhaps even Russians love them in real :mrgreen:
(have not seen your vid yet)
In purely technical POV terrain plays crucial role in this theater imo.
They even do not need to enter Syrian airspace (the same with subsonic Delilah).
For some strikes they don’t have to leave Israel aerospace, but not for all. For example, strike in the vicinity of Allepo at the end of March definitely required Syrian aerospace penetration and flying inside of S-300 and 400 MEZ.
