I've noticed that some of the Harpoons I have in my SF2 Full-Merged just don't hit their targets.
You shoot them and they fly until they hit the ground.
Others follow in low flight until they reach the target.

I noticed that some have WeaponDataType=1 and others WeaponDataType=7.

Does anyone have a list of Harpoon variants available in the game and what is the correct Weapon Data for each one?

WeaponDataType=7 its a cruise missile which you can intercept. This Harpoones was made after NA update.

WeaponDataType=1 its common missiles.

I imagined something like this, because some appear in flight on the map, and you can lock your radar on them.
I figured it was one of NA's innovations.
But can I simply just change everything from WeaponDataType=1 to WeaponDataType=7 or do I need to change something else in the data.ini?

Because I did this as a test and they get "stupid" without hitting anything.

Thanks for answering.

We need some kind person, selfless and brave, who will revise all weapons. Almost all weapons have an end year of 2020 or even less, although in reality they are still used. This situation often happens. I want to sink a Russian ship in the Black Sea and choose the ESCORT mission. I take off, fly for half an hour and .... and meet my STRIKE NAVAL pack with empty pylons. Exiting game, finding Harpoon, changeing GuidanceType to7 and WeaponDataType to 7, changeing Year to 2040. I'm taking off. I'm flying for half an hour. Meet my STRIKE NAVAL pack. all is well, Harpoon missiles on pylons. Five minutes to the target! Bandits! Bandits! and the bandits fly to intercept with empty pylons. Exiting the game, finding the bandits' loadout....        :stars:

I mean that's a monumental task for ALL of the weapons that are produced. I mean I got plenty of free time but rightfully people on their own should modify the files to suit themselves. I don't think it's a bad idea, just not very practical really. But I've had the same issue with loadouts, mainly Russian aircraft, and it is a pain to fix and go through...

Good for a quick fix. But still it would be cool if someone made a revision of weapons. In my folder, both old LODs and new ones, both BMP and JPG are found in one weapon sometimes. I gradually redo it when I have mood. For the aircrafts I fly. But there is plenty of it. My mod folder is from 2009. And sometimes i see a good quality model with low  res missile which made me sad for all the rest of a day

Man, I see myself in your answer.
I generally pick some time and edit and fix some old files, a few each time...
