    Max distance of hellfire is 800m i think, try testing on a training server?


    If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

      Hellfire will travel for 3 seconds, around a maximum of 1200m.

      However to lock on I recon you need to be within visual range. Although apparently the max distance to lock is set to 1200m.

        IIRC, the range at which you can see a lase from the GUI is equal to the view distance of the map/your computer.

        Bombs you can drop from any altitude so long as the lase is still live once it gets within it's appropriate locking distance.

            I find that you can see the lock a second before you get down from cloud level. Atleast while diving anyway.

              Yep, 650-750ish to get a lock with the Laser Targeted Hellfires, meaning the pilot will have to expose the aircraft to AA and MG fire during the pass, so flares are highly recommended when doing it. Also, never fire one missile, fire as many as you can (I believe the cooldown is 5-10 secs between missiles).

              For jets, fly over 500 meters and drop the bombs when you are around 800m from the target. You'll get a lock while the bomb is mid-air and it will hit the target.

                my idea behind it was actually getting up to 3000m and fire the LTM. haha. ;D
                thanks guys. i will check that out on the training server.

                  Works well. See the TG vs TTP Kashan scrim.

                    It works. You just need a good spotter, a good marker, lase yourself and shoot it. Your spotter will be able to correct your aim (more left, more right, etc)

                      Well be advised your missile will self destruct after 3 second. Flight distance of 1100-1200m as I have tested.

                        Is this confirmed? I don't believe it that's why I'm asking. Has anyone else tested this? Devs? Anyone? :p

                          I have tested it several times (especially during the desert rats practicing) and seen it happen.

                          Directly form the hellfire files:

                          ObjectTemplate.timeToLive CRD_NONE/3/0/0

                          And in 3 seconds it gets to approximately 1100m - 1200m max.

                          Example, Go on muttrah, get someone to sit on the deck with the cobra. Go and stand on the container ship. Get him to fire hellfires towards you.

                          Notice that you hear an explosion and if you look carefully you will see a flash (looking the right way of course).
