real world missile travel time.
Reviewed, LowPublic


As an avid OFP and arma series player. I would like to suggest this time around real world missile travel times. In arma II, the sidewinders and the KA-50 had absurdly fast missiles. The KA-50 was like shooting lasers they were so fast to get to the target. thank you for your time and consideration.

Actually a missile can move up to mach 4 or even more.. AIM9-X can fly as fast as mach 2.5

A Vikhr (Ka50 A/G guided missiles) fly at Mach 1.8

that's great, that doesn't mean when you fire a missile it should leave your aircraft cover 4 miles and hit your target all in under 2 seconds. Sorry. at that speed, it would take around 5.5 to 6 seconds to reach the target, but most likely 7 to 8 as it has to get to that speed from a stand still.

For more realistic missile speeds in A2 please try Arma 2 Beta patches with Community Config Project.

For A3... well, guess we'll see.

thank you for looking into this. Please see the work ACE and Mando did. Mando did a great job bringing real world missile physics into the game.
