Missile Target location is wrong

Recommended Posts

The F-16 target model (where missiles are aimed) is set on the pilots head and not the airframe. This means that every hit is fatal to the pilot which appears different than other airframes. 
 

in multiplayer this means a nearly unsurvivable aircraft. My first clue was almost no ejections from f16 vs other platforms.

The F-16 pilot is in a very exposed position with a large canopy, the pilot is more vulnerable than other aircraft. 

thanks

But the rcs of a pilot is lower than the aircraft body so the missile wouldnt fly directly into your face.  Same for ir signature. If you watch an intercept the last thing you see is the mission flying directly to your eyeballs.  I was guessing there is an aim point for the model that’s set to the pilot vs the centroid.

Did you test the missile guides to the head thing yourself?

Only heard it as a commondly believed dcs  myth so far

This supposedly happens to every single aircraft in DCS. Including when being targeted by guns
