It does have more reach, though not purely due to drag - it's able to incorporate much more complex intercept algorithms, including mid-course guidance (but you need a 9X with datalink) - the drag in this case probably plays a minor role.

Makes sense. With passive guidance and a smokeless motor I could see it also being a very dangerous sneak attack weapon in a similar (if shorter-legged) way to the ET in DCS now.

I have heard stories about the ASRAAM being potent in this role with its big motor so I could see a longer reaching, IIR guided 'winder being really nasty in the right hands too.

We'll have complaints on how good the system is haha.

On a serious note, its scary. You really need to stay out of the frontal hemisphere.

This little mean stinger with the high off Boresight capabilty is amazing. It seems to use a Lock-on After launch feature to seek out the target. Amazes me how a missile with a target that is considerably off its gimbal would achieve such a feat.

It's not LOAL (the version they're simulating doesn't have it), just a reaaaaallly wide field of view, it can look 90 degrees off boresight (so it can see anything in its forward hemisphere).

Really wide angle indeed, good to know. Thanks for the info.

In fact, if the missile was LOAL it could potentially do even more scary things such as almost rear shots.

If i'm not wrong IDF claims the Phyton 5 to be a 360º SRM in conjunction with the DASH helmet.
