Part III shows additional tests, such as the performance at different ranges, different geometry, and a comparison with the AIM-54 Phoenix.
Part II of the AIM-7 study focuses on the loft, a familiar technique that allows the AIM-7 to invest energy into altitude as the rocket motor burns, and then cash in by converting altitude to speed and range.
The AIM-7 Sparrow is often overshadowed by the AIM-54 Phoenix and the AIM-120 AMRAAM, to the extent that many in DCS prefer to skip it entirely.
The Sparrow is, in DCS, a surprisingly capable missile, if used correctly. This study aims to improve the understanding of the performance, peculiarities, and properties of this missile, to achieve better results with it.
