I've always thought EOS detection was a bit strange. I've managed to pick up large (e.g. a tanker) targets at well beyond the range at which they appear on radar yet it fails to find a tail aspect fighter at 20nm that has both burners on.

Not sure what the answer is, but it is vaguely amusing to have your own anti-missile missile system.

It has been like that since ......well quite long. Good news is Chizh said they will make some adjustment for Hornet IR signature to be a bit bigger than we have now. So Hornet jockey....be aware lol. As for other modules he leaves that to other 3rd parties dev to decide.

You can read it on Russian forum. It was asked by Teknetenium.

You can actually learn how to avoid an AIM-9X, a 9g turn with your wings in the same plane as the missile's velocity vector will lead to a miss around 90% of the time. You need to be at cornering speed though. I usually prefer this solution as opposed to flares (which just do not work) and trying to lock the missile with an r-73 (which gets you killed 90% of the time)

Yeah the Hornet heat signature is less than a cigar in DCS!
