Default SA-11 shot down AGM-154A but not AGM-154C

Hi Folks,


As the titel states, I expierenced that the SA-11 is able to shot down AGM-154A but not AGM-154C's.


I did a cold start form the Stennis and set the SAM to "Alertstate Red" in the ME befor. So my question is, should JSOW's get shot down by SA-11 Sites or not?

I am able to post this message because certain kinds of missiles can shoot down other certain kinds of missiles, so an SA-11 knocking off a JSOW is plausible.

This is a bug, not a feature.

The SA-11 should be able shoot down all JSOW variations, not just a A model and unable for C model.

As each missile and bomb has just LUA code tag that it can be shot down, it has been forgotten to be enabled for the C model, while it is for A model.

If SAM's are able to take out A2G Ordernance, that's fine for me.


What I'am curios about is this....

Something is buggy with the JSOW-A because even IR sams are shooting at it.

Isn't the JSOW supposed to be low-signature, indeed to improve survivability against SAM systems ? I'm not saying it shouldn't be shootable by any air defense system, but I'm wondering if and how it is taken into account vs other other ordnance. In any case, certainly both variants should behave the same.

The F-117 was supposed to be low-signature too, but that didn't prevent one from being dropped by an SA-3 in 1999.
