what is a flame booster

Recommended Posts

Exactly what it sounds like. It's the part of the missile's flight that you see when you fire that uses the burner to accelerate before going into it's homing or ballistic phase, or with some missiles, it's cruise phase if it has a sustainer motor. It depends on the missile since they use different methods of propulsion and fuel (solid, sometimes liquid, air breathing like the MDBA Meteor). But for game purposes, most AAMs usually have an acceleration phase which uses the burner followed by a homing phase which doesn't.
