Thanks for the info, that clears up a lot of it.

Dawoud hit the Hornet formation around the time pilots were busy preparing to fire their HARMs, and Anderson lost contact with him. Plus, Speicher’s RHAW failed (can’t recall if already before the take-off or before going ‘feet dry’): I doubt he ever realized he’s under attack before that R-40RD went off.
