1.2.16 USAF fighters do not guide AMRAAM


Recommended Posts

While doing testing on AI dogfights, I noticed that the US F-15 and F-16's won't guide AMRAAM shots. They will shoot when their targets are in range, but the missiles will simply fly straight until their own radar finds something or they fall from the sky. The US F-18 is not affected by this and will use missiles as intended. I didn't test F-15/16 from other nations.


I do have a mission set up where this is repeatable, but I can't post it right now. The mission is simply 4 Excellent MiG-29S with AA-12 against 4 Excellent F-15 with AIM-120 C, about 50 miles apart. At ~30 miles, both groups shoot. The F-15's will dive and disperse to avoid R-77. The MiG's fly straight as the AMRAAM's aren't tracking them.


Skill level changes did not change the behavior, nor did changing the task assigned to the flights, their radar using behavior, or reaction to threat.
