Missile speed

Postby Darasuum » Fri 4 Apr 2014 09:31

It could be just my opinion, but why for the love of god are these speeds so slow? It's like watching paint dry sometimes. Even more so when you can already tell that they are going to miss.

Most ATGMs in real life are generally very slow compared to what most people think of then someone says "missile", IE: SAMs or AAMs.

ATGM are usually slow, high subsonic (Mach 0.60 to 0.99) missiles, while A/A (Air to air & anti-air) are supersonic, from Mach 1 up to Mach 6.

Most ATGMs are manually guided; try manually guiding a supersonic missile ;)

I'm not saying that they are fast in real life! I'm saying that they are kinda slow in this game. For instance a 750km/h jet in this game seems to move faster than any anti tank missile.

Because that 750kmph jet is faster irl also at ground level.


Its authentic with a dash of balance, though the starstreak HVM should be instant mach 3.5 missile :lol:

M6.0 is 100% theoretical. Even at 10km from an M0.9 paltfrom the burnout speed of AIM-120 category missiles is about M4-M4.5. The burnout speed of AIM-54 at very high was about M5.0 the Sz-200 (SA-5) SAM system had such a missile which could reach M6.0+ but only above 20 km and long range engagement. Against low/med targets the speed was smaller than even for this system M3.0.

At low what you can see in WG serios the top speed of AAM and SAMs between M2.5 and M3.0 but MANPAD ans SHORADs about only M2.0.

Which is many cases can be real.

HOT&MILAN*konkurs 750km/h (ish), TOW 1000km/h (ish), kokon 1200km/h(ish), hellfire 1500km/h(ish) etc etc

Anyway, does anyone know if there are specific statistics for this or that all anti tank missiles just fly at the same speed?
