Did missile 2 lose guidance?

EtherealN,

first of all i don't know how this happened. Usually when i hold the fire button it only fires one missile but during the mission all of a sudden two missile got fired when i held the fire button? i think i might have accidentally pressed a keyboard but can't remember which?

 

ok, i probably hit the medium/long mode.

 

now in such mode, aren't the two missile supposed to hit the locked target, they were both fired at the same time?

They fire at almost the same time, there is a miniscule delay. If you are moving laterally or anything like that while firing, or if the target is nearby and moving at high speed perpendicular to you, the there is a risk of the second missile "missing" the laser grid as it is traversing relatively fast while the first missile had time to get far enough to catch the grid properly.

 

Without a track file to analyse it's hard to say for sure, though.

The target was static and i was hovering. I will do a track file for it.

Thanks EtherealN.
