I am curious about R-23T and R-24T missile since they are a BVR capable weapon that is retrofitted with Infrared Seeker instead of the Radar Seeker. Do you comrades got any idea what is the maximum lock range for the R-23T and R-24T IR seeker head both at rear and front aspect?
The early R-73 variant, the R-73A bring question to me. Does that variant was equipped with Thrust-vectoring system? Someone says to me that later R-73 has the thrust-vectoring system but not the early one which is the R-73A. Can someone please explain.
This is an obscure missile..
I am wondering, does anybody have information on its maximum body G load and tracking rate in degrees per second?
This is what I personally know (quoting myself from sources I have):
What I don't know though, and what I would really appreciate is if someone has...
Does anyone have a single bit of info about Chinese AAMs?
After a lot of research, the info i found is very little and not good enough to make an actual comparison with Russian, American or European missiles. To say the information is lackluster, would be a huge understatement.
