Thanks a lot for sharing this piece of info and the pics on the forums, unlike some other 3rd party devs who require you to get into facebook for that!

An interesting random little detail about the IRIS-T is, that the missile contains a data base with pictures of the most common adversary aircraft, taken from various angles. The missiles uses this database to aim for the most vulnerable parts of the aircraft, of which up to 8 of them are stored in that data base.

I don't think the DCS IRIS-T will simulate that feature though

For example, the processors that fly on current satellites are designs that date back ~20ish years, because if you're going to put a thing in space you really, really need to know everything about it. I imagine with fighters something similar happens.
I've read that the EF has some Motorola 68020s for the FCS. Those were in the Amiga 1200 almost 30 years ago...

And I remember the NASA trying to acquire some old 8086s for the Space Shuttles in the last few years they still were operated.

So yes, it's quite common to rely on things that have been there for a while.

that is a myth that comes from a claim made by CNN

The actual publicized debrief the pilot never said anything about the Su22 flaring in response to the missile being launched . It never did. the pilot noted the The Aim9X launched was a shot off the rails and disappeared, so the pilot quickly switch to the aim120. It was most likely a malfunction.

Missiles can fail IRL, but thats a totally different matter in DCS we dont have random failures.
