Already airborne RB-04s fly into water/go dumb if launching Viggen is destroyed/crashes


Recommended Posts

Hi Heatblur team,

 

as far as the manual descriptions go,  the RB-04 seems to be a fire and forget missile that tracks its target after launch with

its own onboard radar seeker head.There is no mention of any radar update from or required datalink with the launching aircraft after

missile launch.


However, with the launched missiles underway and cleary tracking their target, if the launching aircraft is destroyed or crashes while

the missiles are still inflight, the missiles immediately go dumb and crash into the water within seconds.

 

Track example is attached.

 

Of course it's desirable to survive the attack run, however getting shot down is still a possibilty in a high threat naval environment and

at the least the launched missiles should still have an effect on target.



Regards,

This is a quite well known issue that has been in since it first released. Supposedly it's a DCS limitation. Same thing with the 15's.

Viggen is love. Viggen is life.

OK,

 

can't keep track of all bug reports from way back. Good to know. Has it been reported to ED?Does it affect Harpoons too? I can't check since

I don't have the Hornet .

 

 

Thanks MYSE

Considering only the Viggen has this problem.....I don't think it's an ED problem.

 

F-18 shooting Harpoon ASM works fine, Harpoon keeps flying its profile and attack the target after the F-18 is dead.

JF-17 shooting C-802AK ASM works fine, C-802AK keeps flying its profile and attack the target after the JF-17 is dead.

If I recall correctly, it's an artifact of how the weapons were implemented, since they were added long before ED introduced any anti-ship missiles and guidance of their own.
