I am an military pilot on the cargo role.
My felow pilots on the fight´s planes spend a lot of time and fuel training for aereal combat with their infrared misiles (about 3 miles range in optimal conditions). I believe that it is a waste because all the countries around us have MIG-29 and F-16 with semi-active misiles (to 10 miles up to 40 miles range). on the moder world I think that dog-fight is out, instead of the "fire and forget" doctrine. What do you think?
