So here's why I think the game in the box is broken - and I'd love to hear that I'm wrong.

Evading missiles is easy.

Enter a maneuver that has an ECM # of 3+, while at a steep attitude. This is always possible, and doesn't run afoul of drag constraints.

This gives an ECM # of 5+ (3+ from maneuver, and 2 from the attitude.)

There are no Russian missiles that can handle that, unless you fire from right behind at close visual range, from which you may as well use guns and fight as a WWI pilot.

I haven't played the game in ages, but can you always be at a steep attitude when using the advanced rules? If not, then it seems to me the game isn't broken, because in reality, an aircraft at a steep attitude can also easily avoid a missile.

Yes, you can, until you hit your max ceiling, or sea level. That provides more than enough turns until the missile runs its course.
