Proposed sidebar

I've added a proposed sidebar for infrared homing air-to-air missiles, if you have any feedback discuss it here. Inspiration was taken from the Torpedo sidebar and the AGM-22 sidebar. All values are fact apart from Maximum effective range, which is subjective (although there is likely to be general consensus), I belive this value is necessary so people have an idea what sort of range they can fire their missiles at. I felt Max flight time and Max flight distance were useful as the missile will self destruct after whichever is reached sooner. As for Power up time and Max acquisition time are just useful to know when you are planning your engagements. I believe the reasoning for all the other fields are reasonably self explanatory. There are also two commented out lines relating to all-aspect lock on distance (for all aspect missiles), and TNT equivalent (for missiles with an explosive other than TNT). Not sure if it is worth trying to make this a template?--Flame2512 (talk) 17:43, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Sidebar image

Just wondering which style of image people think looks better for missile sidebars. The missile just after being fired, or the missile by itself. Examples below:

  • I don't have access to test the missiles, but do the fins flip out at all after leaving the launch tubes? I found that the FFAR Mighty Mouse rockets do not do that in-game, but should (as they do in real life, hence the name "Folding-Fin Aerial Rocket (FFAR)". I submitted a bug report on that one. Seems like it would be goofy to see this "flying stick" without its fins, but maybe that is a detail the players don't really care about. Unfortunately for those who take screenshots of them in action, they just are not complete without their fins. Again, I do like how the sidebar turned out. I think in this instance, the image with the jet and the missile looks the best, to me the missile by itself looks kind of goofy. --AN_TRN_26 (talk) 17:46, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
