Not yet, as per Wags: "On a related matter, our missile engineer is currently focused on the AIM-7, but following that, he will re-visit AIM-120 guidance laws and flight dynamics."

Correct. Internally, the AIM-7 and AIM-120 versions now have the improved navigation system. Additionally, the internal AIM-7M now has several significant changes like corrected motor thrust-altitude dependence based on nozzle exit area and atmosphere pressure, adjusted drag and lift curves based on wind tunnel test data, and other changes.

We are now carefully testing these changes before we release and move to all AIM-7 and AIM-120 versions.

Thanks!

Wags, I really appreciate the information flow of the hornet development! Nice to hear what's "in the pipeline" and to get a little inside view!

Thanks a lot!

Agreed. Makes the early access process a lot more enjoyable.

That's great news. I'm away on holiday now but can't wait to try these out with the new Hornet additions, in particular the 9X!


Can we expect similar corrections, as mentioned above, to be rolled out to other missiles such as the R27 series?

I agree, BVR has been a touchy subject in the past but it's great to hear efforts are being taken to really get it right. Would like to say the rate of improvements is impressive, a big thumbs up.

I hope the R-27 family also could benefit for that.

Aren't all missiles affected by these issues?

Once updated, I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people had to rethink their approach to air combat.
