Many say (and with a good reason) that a picture is worth a thousand words. Following this logic a video is worth millions of words.
As such I decided to share a link to a track from a mission (flying a F-15C against a Su-30) in order to prove an issue that I remember to have posted here years ago but now I managed to "film it" into a track. And to be honest I believed that this issue was solved by now specially considering how dedicated to the F/A-18 and even F-16 modules ED seems to be (and the AMRAAM is IMO vital for these modules).
Anyway, here's the link:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H1j5kBCpQuU4PPLY2sVueZaYVPnLMyrU/view?usp=sharing
All you need to to is to follow (external view) the very first AMRAAM that I fire and watch the final moments when the AMRAAM gets near the enemy Su-30...
