Awesome stuff! I’m sure this will be quite useful for people. A word of caution though is that the schedule can change so please be on the watch in this thread just in case.

Aim-54 Phoenix Ruling

Alrighty ladies and gentlemen we have come to a conclusion on the Phoenix, or at least a partial one. The AIM-54, in any variant, as it stands is not really conducive to a competitive arena. With it being a much much longer range missile than the other weapons in the game, coupled with it being an active it is a formidable foe. However, we also recognize that without the Phoenix the Tomcat is a almost entirely gimped in the current weapons format for SATAL. Therefore, we will be limiting Tomcats to 2 AIM-54A mk47 Phoenix missiles for the time being which we beleive still allows the Tomcat to use its iconic weapon, but also limits the Phoenix's effect on SATAL to a more controlled manner. If there are changes that come out down the line that make the Phoenix as less lethal weapon there is always the possibility for change.

Summary - Tomcat limited to 2 AIM-54A mk74 Phoenix per aircraft for both Diamond and Gold leagues. All other Phoenix types, AIM-54A mk60 and AIM-54C, are currently banned.

The lofting of missiles in DCS is apparently not synced in multiplayer, which causes big problems with a missile that flies for such a long time as the Aim-54 does.

On the targets PC the missile will fly straight of the rail and thus through thicker air. On the F-14's PC the missile will do a loft and so it reaches the target with much higher speed and much earlier in time.
This will result in the following:
The target may not even get a warning of the missile when it goes active because on his PC it is slow and far away. The missile will explode far away from him (e.g. 15km in our testing) and kill him.
Not sure if such a bugged weapon should be used for a competitive match.

Is it possible for you to make a video of this happening?
