kmart494 Posted May 11, 2015 Report Share Posted May 11, 2015 Last night I played a scenario where an Arleigh Burke DDG is attacked by SS-N-22 missiles fired from a Sovremenny DDG. The Sov had Helix AEW support but the Burke had no copter on board, and so detection of inbound missiles was limited to the SPY-1 radar. Here was the problem. After the 1st move phase of an Engagement Turn the Sunburns were just outside the radar horizon of 24 nm and are still undetected. In the 2nd move phase the missiles are 6.9 nm closer. But, since the ship had no prior detection of the missiles, the Burke cannot see or fire on them in the 2nd fire phase, right? If so, then the missiles move another 6.9 nm (1st move of next turn) but technically remain undetected until the detection phase. Now the missiles move another 6.9 nm closer(2nd move) and the burke can fire in defense (2nd fire phase). The missiles moved a little more than 20 nm during this event, leaving very little room to deal with them. Is my interpretation of the sequence of the Engagement Turn correct?
