Rocket pods and effectiveness.


Recommended Posts

So most other rockets fired from pods are pretty useful against a variety of soft targets.  It seems like the rockets on the Mirage are more of a really good suggestion.  And less of a lethal weapon.

Unfortunately I don't have the memory on my PC to do a comparison video or the skills to put together a mission and the video edits.  

 

I have flown the Av8b, Hornet, Mig-29, su25, 25T, 27 and 33.  And the smaller rocket pods on all of those feel far more lethal than the Mirage rockets.  

 

I mean they are 68mm rockets right? 

That is a little smaller than the 2.75" rockets on the Harrier and Hornet, and smaller than the UB-32 rocket pods which are 57mm.

 

Again I am not expecting to take out tanks, but to at least take out light armored vehicles like the BMP-1 and 2...

I have no problem wiping out IFV's with Mirage rockets. They're some of the more reliable ones in my opinion. Nothing is worse than the A10's FFAR's that aren't APKWS. The best by far are Zuni's, of course.
