Rapier battery only fires single missile at a time

I set up a test last night with 2 launchers and all the extra tracking units in a group and the battery only fired a single missile at a time. Another wasn't launched until the first had impacted terrain or the target aircraft, which made it a very ineffective system. Is this correct behaviour?

It is normal behavior. A rapier battery should have a single launcher and tacker etc. The version modelled in the game is in fact field standard B not A as it has the DN181 radar tracker.

 

Normally Rapier units being Short Range Air Defence (SHORAD) would be fairly close together. You should use them like you would an AA gun system. Typically an airfield would be defended by between 4 to 8 launcher/tracker combinations. A single Rapier is pretty ineffective but as a group they are lethal.
