Default Question about the burning time of the R77 engine

In the game, the R77's engine only lasts for 6 seconds. This lasting time is simply ridiculously short. Compared with the R73, the working time of the R77's engine only increased about 1 second. As a medium-range missile, such a short engine burn time does not make sense. I think it is necessary for ED to delve into the relevant data of R77.

If you got any data showing something else you might wanna send it zo them. Otherwise no proof = no change

Actually I know nothing about the R77. It's just a question.

Then maybe you should put a question mark somewhere in your sentences above if it was a question.

The motor burn time DOES come from the relevant missile documentation.

It's not going to change.

To be fair the R-77-1 added a little bit of length and weight for an extra sustainer motor.

Yes it is ridiculous. What is the aircraft do you use for this R-77 payload? They are not improving so often the Russian Fighters and there are a lot of issues that impact in the combat success. My advice. There are two ways to better use this fake R-77. One, to pushing them in defensive leaving one R-77 for their RWR keep warning for a while. Second keep R-77 for in 15km range only in combination with R-73 it is lethal. Always use first 2 R-27ER with one hard turn to the opposite side in between, with high maneuvers of 60 grades radar angle and ECM on for your first moves before get in 15km turn it off. They just will run away or will die in a crazy try.

Just don’t hear those Trolls that ask you for your engineer certification for missiles. They all mostly fight against Russian hardware.

You're the troll here. The numbers for the R-77 come from a Russian missile engineering book. So do the R-27 parameters. But hey, don't ask me - ask Chizh directly.

Just ignore them. As you can see they are not helping at all. Because they don’t flies often with RU fighters.
