Hornet Flare Effectiveness Study


Recommended Posts

Building on flare testing of the A-10C and AV-8B, I've conducted a study of the flare effectiveness of the F/A-18C.

 

TL;DR: FLAR: 8 RPT: 1 INT: N/A provides the best protection, of the tested profiles, with the minimum required flares.

 

For this study, I did a bit more testing to determine the effects of the three variables that can be programmed in the F/A-18C: Flares per cycle, cycle repeats, and cycle intervals. There were some interesting results, but overall they are consistent with the previous testing.

 

You can find the results of the F/A-18C study here:
