I would argue for using EDs sparrow instead and have no inconsistencies. If you want a less sensitive sparrow fly your missile mod. Inconsistent versions of the same missile are not a good thing, as you have just demonstrated.

Fair, its just imo chaff is way to effective on PD missiles right now, but I guess consistency is more important than fixing the chaff resistivity.

IMHO a chaff fix should go beyond adjusting that one number - it's looks like there's almost no middle ground between no good and too good.

Agreed the way I view it is the code should effectivly draw a "box" around the target representing its radar return. It will then aim for this, when you dump out chaff it can drastically increase the size of this box increasing the missiles miss distance. With the tech level and if the missile is PD or not dictating how big of a return the chaff creates.

For example:
