Default BRM 90 still behaving like a Vikhr

Hey Deka,

now that the bigger issues are gone can we take a look at the BRM90.
It still uses the the Vikhr model of a beamrider.
Wouldn't it be more appropriate to use the AGM 65 E Flight/Tracking model for them?

If they use Maverick flight model it won’t spin

So slight visual difference (not spinning, who cares you don't see it from cockpit anyway) vs totally incorrect simulation (beam riding).

I don't understand the reasoning

I don't think they did it only because of spinning visual effects, at least I hope not. My guess is, they did it because Vikhr missile profile behaves more like a rocket than the Maverick one so it would be easy to implement since they are already coded to fire many from one pylon where as the mavs are more about one per pylon and glide for long distance setup.

Wild guess on my part because the idea of them doing it current way simply to make them spin is kind of absurd.

LGR will miss if the laser is moved whereas LGM won't AFAIK.

Laser Mavericks need a laser for targeting, but not tracking.

There is also the issue of firing a salvo.

I think ED need to add new weapons logic to the sim for them to be modeled accurately.

I don't think so. The logic should be no different than in other laser-guided rockets such as, say, the S-25L.
