The British Starstreak SAM and the Alvis Stormer HVM launcher SF2

Original done by winterhunter


Starstreak is a British short range surface-to-air missile manufactured by Thales Air Defence Limited (originally Shorts Missile Systems), in Belfast. It is also known as Starstreak HVM where HVM stands for "High Velocity Missile". After launch the missile accelerates to approximately Mach 3.5, at which point it launches three laser beam riding submunitions. The use of three submunitions increases the likelihood of a successful hit on the target. Starstreak has been in service with the British Army since 1997.

Now in version V1.1 with some small corrections (SF1/WoX):

+ The optronics turret does not "crash" into the missile turret anymore.

+ The visual detection range has been somewhat bettered.

+ The thrust curve of the missile has been tweaked to improve the Pk.

+ The seeker FOV has been enlarged to ensure more frequent engagements in high angular velocity conditions.


SF2 adaptations:


-Had to redo the whole missile system, which works.

-Edited for SF2
