Hydra Counter-Measures

Recommended Posts

9 Ball

Ok. What the hell is with them. They are counter-measures. They should move towards the target and blow them up. So why do they just float through the air towards the ground. If anyone knows how to use them effectively, please reply. suicidal.gifbreadfish_by_Moto.gif

Many topics on this already, anyway, when you have rockets right on your tail keep pressing O and it should work.

The countermeasures act just like real ones, they are just ultra bight flares that are designed to attract the missiles' own heat seeking system away from the plane and onto them instead.

The missiles then detonate themselves when almost on them like they would when near thier intended target, more damage is caused by an explosion near a plane's engine than actually driving a projectile into it.

They do not have thier own method of propulsion or targeting, the cost and actual effectiveness would make them a pointless extravagence.

Chaff works in a similar way, it is just a cloud of small tin foil squares that are dumped out of the plane in an attempt to draw the attention of radar guided missiles away. Again achieving the same result.

Thats the technical sh*t over with for today.

You can usually get them to work if you are in hover, or a missile is locked on you.
