Can you like stop derailing these threads? Also, just fyi, I rarely need two AIM-120s to take out an F-14, just saying.

Personally found anything meant for medium range or anti bomber typically ganks a Tomcat, AIM-7s, AIM-120s, SD-10s, AIM-54s, R-27s, R-77 ect but anything meant as a short range AIM-9 equivalent missile or MANPAD sized missile usually needs 2 if it explodes near the rear of the plane.

So AIM-9s, R-3S, R-73s ect. I've found 90% of the time I lose my Radar and avionics and usually an engine with the other engine burping and buffeting all the way back to base. Quite often I lose the secondary hydraulics meaning I lose gear/ tail hook/speed break....I've only once lost elevator control but I wasn't pulling every hard when I ran out of fluid so using the alirons to go inverted every 10s or so I could get her back to friendly air space.

The only wonky thing given her size and what Tomcat's IRL have faced and lived through I find odd is the instant death roll she goes into if you lose 1 or both wings...I'm sure HB can correct me but I don't see why the plane would automatically go into this 60-70RPM roll black me out instantly and keep rolling till I hit the ground particularly if you lose both wings and so there isn't any A-symmetric lift generating this spin.

TL : DR Tip - If you lose any wings in the tomcat eject ASAP because at most you've got about 3 seconds before you start spinning and black out forever.

Its actually a automatic safety measure system...down on the left panel near your left thigh should be a covered emergency switch to turn off the A-symmetric thrust limiter and allow your good engine to go into AB, Use with caution of course.

That was added in the A+ to reduce the chance of flatspins should you lose an engine.
