Ammunition Defragmentation

One question, is the fragmentation simulated? I ask because in a mission I launched two rockets at a moving military transport truck without armor, I did not exactly hit the truck, but both rockets hit very close to it, less than a couple meters and not even the wheels were deflated. I tried in a mission created by me to do the same, trying not to hit exactly the target but very close to the objective with 6 and 8 rockets and the same thing happened.

Greetings

Fragmentation is not modelled at all in DCS. What they do instead is boost the warhead 'power' (which I think is TNT equivalent) to compensate.

 

With weapons with large proximity ranges, it got boosted by 500% IIRC.

hence why you can kill a tank with an indirect hit from a Zuni, irl, you'd need a direct hit on a vulnerable part of the tank to actually knock it out, but in DCS, a Zuni will happily kill or damage a T-55 even if the rocket lands a couple meters away

I am happy, they moved the post to the wish list, therefore I know that they will work on that. 😉

 

I wouldn't be so optimistic, some stuff they might, other stuff no or not for a very long time.

 

But I hope we do see proper warhead modelling and fragmentation in the future.

Fragmentation, not defragmentation.

Defragmentation = consolidation, connecting the pieces together.

Sorry for my bad English ... my English Literature Teacher 😉

I corrected the post but could not correct the title
