Honestly who cares. With the way the Hornet radar fails to acquire bandits that are head to head at coaltitude I may never find you. There's strengths and weaknesses to every sim in the game whether they are realistic?
I’m not changing anything currently with the Hornet. It’s going to stay as it is. I have not seen any proof yet that shows that the flight model is out of place as of yet. There is an issue with the G override, but I don’t think there is anything that can be done about that.

That's a strength the Hornet has that makes it competitive with Russian jets and the aim-9x is banned for the arbitrary reason that russian jet guys think it's too good. If I had a huge advantage for years and something came along to challenge that I guess it's reasonable that I'd try to prevent its acceptance too.

you can't say that the AIM-9X ruins dogfights. With the R-73 off a cold merge without the element of surprise dogfights were already nonexistent. Just the Flankers and Fulcrums would win every time.

Did anyone see Ralfidude's video where a Hornet and Mig-29 tested both jet's HOBS capabilities? It was a 50-50 chance who would win each time. It's not like it's an unfair advantage that wasn't already in the game.
We have done some testing with some of the best pilots in DCS and found that the aim9x makes a merge unwinable. On top of that the 73, though it is good, is not a 9x. The max off bore for the 73 is much lower than the 90 provided by the 9x. Couple that with the increased ccm resistance and it’s a landslide in the 9x favor which is the reason we deemed it not fit for combative play. The 73 is very easy to flare and has a smoked motor. These are both faults the 9x does not suffer from.

Layout will be a traditional tournament bracket with random seeding. The bracket will be posted admirer signups close on the 31st. Matches will more than likely be best of 3 for the first rounds and best of 5 for later matches as the tournament progresses

Rules are rules. I didn't enter the 2v2 or 4v4 because of that. Either way a non HOBS jet against an R-73 equipped one off the merge is gonna be defensive off the merge every time. Even if the R-73 is smokey and easy to flare simply being defensive right off the merge can lose you the fight more often than not. In that situation if you aren't dead off the merge it's because you got lucky and nothing else. So I guess it's going to be Flankers and Fulcrums winning missiles fights for the foreseeable future.

I think it's awesome though how the 9x is too good to be used in servers and competitions, but the R-73 is perfectly fine against jets that don't have HOBS missiles. Double standards are fun. The hypocrisy is unreal. Biased too
