Post subject: SA-2 Missile... Reply with quote
I have noticed on many occasions the missile used in FA to simulate the SA-2 still has the booster section attached...

In reality the booster separates shortly after launch and a second stage rocket is what propels the missile to intercept.

Below is what an SA-2 missile should look like at terminal intercept...



I have created a new missile to correctly simulate this but was looking for any ideas on how we could go about simulating the booster separation...?

Has anyone tried using a different shape (like tail fins) as a smoke shape and then keeping that smoke to just one display and keeping it on the missile's fantail (short exist time so it doesn't leave a trail of tail fins) so it looks like the booster is attached until the missile burns out and then it separates to simulate second stage ignition?

Just an idea buzzing around in my head. Any opinions on this?
