manpads should be legal
isis has them.
what if isis attacks me?

True. the only restriction the 2nd amendment should have is biological weapons, because they tend to spread well beyond their intended targets. scary stuff.

The defense of a man-portable air-defense system (MANPADS) SAM is not another shoulder-launched surface-to-air missile. Silly.

Afraid of MANPADS damaging your plane?
Get a tougher plane.
Here's a close-up view of a damaged section of a 23rd Tactical Fighter Wing A-10A Thunderbolt II aircraft. The plane sustained damaged when an SA-16 missile exploded near it during Operation Desert Storm.

ROCKHAMPTON, Queensland, Australia (July 17, 2011) Australian Defence Force Gunner Luke Pozzoli aims a RBS-70 Ground Based Air Defence System after the section completes a one minute, thirty second assembly during rapid deployment drills. The 16th Air Defence Regiment, based in Woodside, South Australia, is part of the Australian Defence Force participating in Talisman Sabre 2011. TS11 is an exercise designed to train U.S. and Australian forces to plan and conduct Combined Task Force operations to improve combat readiness and interoperability on a variety of missions from conventional conflict to peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance efforts.

They ARE legal. They fall under Destructive Devices per the NFA, and can be lawfully owned (or even manufactured) provided you pay the $200 tax and complete the registration.

The way I understand it though is the flares really didn't do much of anything as the SA-7 isn't heat seeking. Dude must have fucked up targeting or simply had a soviet left-over that was a dud.

The SA-7 is heat-seeking, in that it uses infrared guidance. It certainly does not use radar guidance.

The SA-7 GRAIL (Strela-2) man-portable, shoulder-fired, low-altitude SAM system is similar to the US Army REDEYE, with a high explosive warhead and passive infrared homing guidance. The SA-7 was the first generation of Soviet man portable surface-to-air missiles. Although classed as "fire and forget" types, the missiles were easily overcome by solar heat and, when used in hilly terrain, by heat from the ground. http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/russia/sa-7.htm

Yeah, the Strela-1 used, IIRC, a uncooled plumbous sulfide seeker. Cheap and effective, but limited to tail-chase against the hot engines of an aircraft, and was very "dumb" in that flares, the sun, and even some cloud reflections could confuse it.

I'm curious what the automagic detector system is. Millimeter-wave RADAR or UV?

Not sure.

When AVI did real maintenance on it they only let their actual smart guys do it though. Twas serious business.

Next-gen MANPADS use compact matrix IR seekers, they are much more effective against simple decoys. Still, direct blinding emitters that are used in most advanced countermeasures have a good chance too defeat such missile.

Modern MANPADS as I understand it also utilize an ultraviolet sensor to overcome thermal decoying. The idea is that the aircraft body will show up against the sky due to reflecting UV light, and more significantly the engine plume of a jet aircraft, especially one under afterburn, produces a significant amount of UV light.
Decoy flares, on the other hand, do not produce any UV.

So, when working together, the IR sensor may be momentarily confused by decoy flares, but the UV sensor will remain fixed on the aircraft and get the IR sensor back on track.

Blinding lasers remain effective, of course.
>> No. 109056 ID: d4c8ee
As I understand it, it can also work like blackbody radiation, with the UV seeker looking for the "void" created by the aircraft blocking natural UV light between the seeker and the background. There's also work into developing what is effectively a chaff made out of UV reflective materials that magnify natural UV light.
