Air to Air Missiles are designed to engage opposing aircraft at ranges of less than 30km and are known as short-range or “within visual range” missiles.
30 KILOMETERS not 30 METERS !!!!!!!
that means 30,000 meters or within VISUAL RANGE
currently you must be withing -->30<-- METERS to lock on with a AA Missile in Arma3 , however the enemy aircraft seem to be capable of locking onto your worthless aircraft at 700 to 800 METERS AWAY.
if you are lucky enough to survive long enough to get 30 METERS AWAY from an
enemy aircraft that is firing at you , by that time your too close and
launching a missile will be as worthless as your worthless aircraft missile locking system.
if its supposed to be a simulation , then let it be a simulation , otherwise
I'll load the battlefield 3 arcade game back up.
