Default F-5 damage model

Not sure if this has been mentioned elsewhere in the bugs section but has anyone else found the F-5 damage model to be exceptionally resilient to missile hits?

My experience has been during multiplayer fighting against other clients, it takes at least 2 missiles (sometimes 3) to finish off this tiny jet and if you hit the F-5 with only 1 missile he will always fly away with only a little bit of smoke trailing behind him almost unaffected.

Are you hitting it in the tail? I've noticed tail pipe hits are not as effective as airframe hits on several aircraft. F-5, Sabre, and MiG-15 all come to mind.

It doesn't matter what angle or distance the missiles explode near the airframe, the result seems to be the same everytime.

Can't say I've had that experience, missile or gun hits usually destroy the plane and kill the pilot whenever I'm inside it.

I've already survived a few missiles hits but either the second one killed me or my engines died later on.

It seems to work fine on my end in multiplayer. I take a hit to the rear when flying the F-5 and lose my elevators. I hit an F-5 with an R-60 and don't seem to have any issue with effect. If they don't go down immediately, they're crippled. I find the Mig-21 to be a little more durable, but not extraordinarily so.

What server were you playing on?

In 104th server, but with further investigations it seems the AIM-120 is at fault the most.

Well if you're firing AIM-120s at F-5Es, they need all the help they can get

Firing a single R-60 at an F-5 from a MiG-21 almost always results in a kill for me.

I've noticed all sorts of aircraft tanking missile hits, it's not exactly an F-5 specific problem

I find that while I survive missile hits often, my fuel tanks don't and I will be out of fuel in about 20s.
