Default Using MiG 21 for SEAD

The MiG 21 is by far my most favorite aircraft both IRL and in DCS.

I like to try out crazy shit with it. Like using it for SEAD despite the fact the it is absolutely not designed for it.

As you can see in the video below I was (after many tries) able to take out a IR SAM vehicle with a Kh-66 GROM beam riding missile. I'm curious what you guys think? Would this be practical to use in an online mission?

Has anyone else tried to push this aircraft beyond what it was designed for? I'm looking for suggestions on what to try out next.

I start shooting and stuff about 3 min into the video.

Attacking strela with groms is waste of ammunition.
Try a tor or even a hawk system.
What I do against targets that I cannot get close enough is,1) do all the proper steps to set up for the groms 2) then eyes on target and distance measures from target area,3) disengage radar, Pipper full scale and now u aim with the pipper dot,4) take altitude and fire missiles at 12km range and aling with target,5) engage radar stay on target 2-3 secs close radar and brake away.

You can do SEAD, with rockets or guns, with two or more mig21s.... just coordination, when it locked one mig, just break away and let the other, attacking from the other side do the approach... its very funny.

That's how we bait-and-kill mobile battlefield SAM units like Avengers, with the Su-25 as well

One frogfoot swoops low enough to goad him into firing and revealing his position, but not so low that you can't pull back up out of range before getting pasted by the SAM, and then someone else locks him up with laser guided munitions, and take him out.

It's a tactic that works well against AI; would never work against someone intelligent enough to hold their fire until the frogfoot got too close to get away again after the launch.

Both actually. But this was recorded with the old version of DCS (1.2.5 I think).

I haven't tried modding 1.5.
