Now the F14 in BVR(beyond visual range) would ideally use its super weapon the AIM-54 Phoenix. But to test the new BVR AI I decided to use the Sparrows. Both the AIM-7 Sparrows and the Alamos used by the MiG29 are semi-active missiles, meaning I need to keep my plane’s radar locked on the enemy the enemy to lead it to it’s target, that means if you are forced to crank/defend against an enemy missile. And you loose track. Your missile will just fly straight into the nothingness.
In all 4 rounds no missiles hit at BVR ranges. They all got close and personal within 5nm. And in one round the mig got me with cannon.
