Very impressed that you know the difference between beaming and the "notch" (most DCS players I run into use the terms interchangeably) and the various ways of exploiting a missile's inherent weaknesses. Looking forward to the rest of the series and subscribed.

Keep up the amazing educational videos. I appreciate that they are short, sweet and to the point while showing many viewpoints. I also appreciate that they aren't overly heavy on the tacview which some people overdo.

Not sure what tracking equations the 9M33 uses so it's possible that it's an exception here, but generally speaking, ground driving should not work anywhere near as well as it does in DCS - even the S-75/SA-2 has specific tracking modes to deal with it. While it works at the moment, I wouldn't rely on it if ED ever revise the IADS side of things.

I used this technique before when i was 15 years old
I learn it from lock on the first version 2003 there is a lot of courses in the simulation
Those technique all only usefull against weak systeme defense like sa8 or osa or tunguska or tor
But against s300 no chance
Try To make à video with s300 and try it am waiting for your answer
Note : sometimes work against patriot but not always
Thanks for the video waiting for you To share more
