I know they had problems with the proximity fuses on the sidewinder missile not being able to read the RAM on the F-117.
That meant that a aircraft with that type coating was immune to everything but a direct hit by a sidewinder missile.
They have changed the proximity fuses on US air to air missile to a new type that can now read stealth aircraft.
One of the first aircraft tested at the navy Missile Engagement Simulation Arena (MESA) at China Lake was the F-117.
By the way i assembled and wired both the test sled and the two giant sliding cranes.
The inside walls of this building is the largest Faraday cage in the US and maybe the world.
PS. There is a photo floating around that shows a 'flying saucer' hanging in the building. unknown if its real.
