Missile example mistakes[edit]

Some data is incorrect. R-33 does not use active radar homing, it's semi-active, on each type of missile (baseline, export R-33E, and upgraded R-33S). Also, there is no semi-active/infrared homed R-27. There were five production types, R-27R, R-27ER, R-27T, R-27ET, and R-27AE. The R types use semi-active terminal guidance, the T types use infrared homing guidance, and A type uses active terminal guidance. For radar models INS is used for first stage, while infrared seeking ones require a lock on before launch. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zb10948 (talkcontribs) 00:18, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Meteor3.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Meteor3.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Effectiveness of BVR combat[edit]

A while ago I deleted the sentence: "Investments in BVR air to air combat have almost entirely failed to achieve their objectives" only for my edit to be undone. I'm no expert on whether BVR is an effective air combat doctrine or not, but Wikipedia articles are not the place to be making such one-sided statements. It's one thing to present one side of an argument, but that's not what this sentence attempts to convey; it should be deleted —Masterblooregard (talk) 03:48, 27 November 2011 (UTC)
