I see the sqwark alert come up on my phone and tracked the flight live. I saw the altitude increasing and decreasing and watch what path it was making
thinking it was all odd didn't actually know it was in trouble. With the altitude fluctuations I thought flight radar was just playing up
This is only a simulation, but the point is something that has been true for a while now. If two fighters with HOBS missiles and helmet mounted
displays end up in a WVR fight, with equal situational awareness, then the most likely outcome is a mutual kill.
Turning at the merge is the great equalizer, because it might not matter if you're in a F-22 or a Mig-29.
If the intent is to have a lop sided advantage of the adversary, then a BVR fighter is needed.
