Default Most effective mode for LD-10

I am trying to determine the most effective mode for using the LD-10 against know SAM sites. To this point I have been using them in SP mode and waiting until I receive a 'MISSILE LAUNCH' warning then firing them and going defensive. Is the ACT mode better than this approach? I have not had much luck using ACT mode so I am sure I am doing something noobish and not deploying the missile properly.

I don’t know test it, but it’s INS seems accurate enough to hit large targets if no radiation is found, but not so useful with 22kg warhead

ACT is better when you have the idea where the SAM is. It more like a PB mode of HARM which lacks the DLZ indication. This mode can get good use of LD10's range.

SP is a fast mode to use which U have no idea where the SAM is.

PAS is not very precise since U have complete no idea where the missile will go.

SP can be very good at off boresight. One time I was taking out a SAM in Bandar Abbas and fired when it locked me but a SAM in Seerik also locked me so my SP missile went towards Seerik making a nice 6-7G turn flew all the way and killed the SAM in Seerik.

At the same time I fired in Passive mode and since I was pointing at the SAMs at Bandar Abbas they went there

I’ve been meaning to try shooting behind you, I tried it on release trying to get them to go after air targets that STT and missiles but that capability seems to have been removed, give it enough time to turn and less range to compensate and it’s surprising what you can do
