Yeah DCS's R60 performance in terms of kinematic range isn't awful, my own CFD results matched almost exactly with ED's current implementation so the range is good imo.
In terms of seeker range its hard to say i personally havn't seen anything saying DCS's representation of the R60/60M seekers are wrong in terms of range not this

Additionally:



I'm wondering does a chart like this exist for the SU-27? I'd base the relative range values off of how these charts compare to the baseline.

I know I've somehow been hit head on at probably a mile distance by a Mig21's R3. In tacview it just said R3, but I assume it was a radar missile?

Probably but it does seem it may be a bit buggy at the moment according to that other thread.

I was wrong.
It is impulse of R-3S missile.

R-60 and R-60M total impulse = 2452 kN.

Default Komar seeker

In the MiG-29 combat manual there is an indication that the lock of the Mi-8 helicopter possible at ranges of 1-2 km. In DCS, R-60M do lock Mi-8 noticeably farther, about 2.8 km.

was it indicated if this value was max possible? Or was it more along the lines of max head on?

We are all human and make mistakes.

It takes a man to admit a mistake has been made.

You Sir, Chizh, I shake your hand.




Glad you are here interacting with the community to make DCS the best it can be / will be through this type of leadership you have displayed.

Thank you,
Monnie

It is maximum seeker range about 45 degree aspect angle, without any missile dynamic estimation.

I am guessing the MiG-21 afterburner heat signature disappearing bug also plays a part

Ok seems reasonable for a heli from that aspect, now of course in DCS as you noted this number is a bit high. Maybe something worth investigating is a rework of some of these values?
