Thx, Nhawk. The only issue I have now is that unfortunately, the Dynamic Launch Zone in the Viper (and presumably any other a/c affected by the mod) doesn't accurately reflect the longer ranges your mod implements for the Aim 120, which def intrudes on the BVR experience. Is there any way to address that?

Thx

No, unfortunately, the DLZ's for these jets seem to be hardcoded and I haven't been able to figure out how to change them.

Was afraid of that.

Yeah, I've looked to see if I can change it but I think it's in some locked file somewhere that I can't edit. For now though it's not too hard to just adjust based on the new performance. Its what I do with the default missile anyway.

Here's hoping the announced AIM120 overhaul happens quickly.

Out of curiosity (and seeing your results about the R24), could you do some CFD runs on the AIM7 and compare it to ED's updated model? I think that could give us a good feel for what to expect in the missile update everyone is waiting for.

ED's AIM-7 is just about spot on with what I have

Their Drag matches:





almost exactly






The main difference is in the thrust which I have no clue where their values come from.

NP, now in the mod I did change the thrust values to match the 'Expected AIM7' performance but made no changes to drag.
