For the F-14 project, we realized that we’ll need to spend considerable time and effort with the development and research for the AIM-54 Phoenix missile.
Not only due to this weapons’ unique place as a weapon designed specifically for the AWG-9 radar system, its’ role as the tip of the spear of the USN air-to-air capability or even it’s amazing range and performance– but also to ensure that any advantages and disadvantages of the missile are accurately reproduced and respected.
It’s quite likely that the AIM-54 will change the players’ experience in the DCS multiplayer environment.
Thus, we consider it of the utmost importance to have a wide breadth of open and readily available research available to the community. Jatka lukemista
