It's good that I think you're scum, too, LeHah.
Is that some mod to the game? Only the Tomcat and maybe the F-22 (if they ever get around to building it) can carry the Phoenix.MetalSiren said:If you want to know if you have real skills at flying.Pick up Falcon 4.0 and fight 7 other players online.On my best night i bag 4 players at the same time using Pheonix Missles.
Yes. WC2 wingmen were notorious for doing just that. WC2 is the only game I die in with any sort of regularity, and it's 90% due to my wingmen shooting me from behind . . especially when we're in sabres.Woolie Wool said:maybe it was because he maneuvers around your ship when you're between him and his target instead of shooting through it
The F/A-22's being built, actually - though it's not being deployed in the same numbers the program was originally hoping for. As far as Phoenixes go... no, only the F-14 currently carries them, since they've pretty much ruled out any successors or other missiles along those lines, to concentrate on the multi-role missiles (ASMT) instead.Woolie Wool said:Is that some mod to the game?

The AIM-54 Phoenix is NOT a cruise missile - cruise missiles are effectively unmanned planes using turbofan engines with really long ranges. The Phoenix is a fast, long-ranged missile originally designed for engaging enemy fighters or bombers at long ranges - the outer air battle, as it were. This was an effective concept back when the missile was designed, for targets such as Soviet bombers, as you could let the radar suite target the enemy for the missiles you launched.dacis2 said:really long range air to air cruise missiles?
The Harpoon is NOT a cruise missile - it's an antiship weapon, with a range limited to about 60 nautical miles for most variations, and is a turbojet which zips over the water without having the extended range of a real cruise missile (which have ranges into the hundreds).Magamo said:I do know that back in the Falcon 3.0 days w/ Operation Fighting Tiger, one could fly in the hypothetical "FSX" varient, which could, in that game be loaded with Harpoon Anti-ship cruise missiles.

The Rapier is the experimental fighter in WC1, unless you count flying a Dralthi in SM2 to be 'experimental'.wankski said:heh, there is another experiemntal fighter in wc1? havent got that far yet..
i liked the panther, but the stronger guns on the vamp are good.. the wasp i love, if only because its has a unique ability, plus the swarm missles are sweet, if only to look at.
the devastator has to be my fav (besides the wasp) in WCP.. nothing like busting light fighters like pimples with that handy plasma... no sireee... wooot !!
