Default ** AIM-54 Phoenix CFD Whitepaper! **

Fox Three!


For DCS: F-14, an accurate simulation of the AIM-54A and C Phoenix missiles is integral to the realism and recreation of real life combat scenarios for the F-14.
We’ve poured months of time into conducting research, scavenging for documentation and performing CFD simulations, all in order to give ourselves a better understanding of what this missile is capable of.

We now believe that we have a very firm grasp of the actual performance of the AIM-54 with both Mk.47 and Mk. 60 engines.
We’ve promised to be transparent with our research and conclusions on the AIM-54-- in part as we want to ensure high levels of confidence in our implementation, which is especially important in the MP Arena.

We’ve prepared a short whitepaper on some of our conclusions and findings at the link below.
Enjoy!

Sincerely,

We were commissioned to perform simulations at level flight (0 AoA) for 6km and 12km altitude; these altitudes were chosen as these are the most likely altitudes the missile will be fired from.
:thinking: i'm not sure the 104th ever got that memo lmao
