missile tips and rocket tips

is there a technical or tactical reason why missiles have colorful nosecaps? like radar or speed tracking? or is it just for aesthetics? i admit it makes them look awesome just wondering if theres another purpose for it

      looking him up in hebrew didn't lend anything until i also added his rank to the search
      the first red flag is that different websites cite him as being different ranks
      he is old though so you got that right

      and he has an OSINT website dedicated almost wholly to egypt

        So he's either a paranoid moron or just hoping that Israel will attack Egypt before they do anything. If anything, sounds like he is just throwing shit at the wall. No different than scott Ritter.

      >All so tiresome.
      Egyptian state media has been loudly blaring out pro-Hamas messages for close to a month now, with spook-aligned Twitter sounding the alarm that the Egyptians were making under-the-table threats about five months ago. There's also apparently been an armor buildup in the Sinai that's now blatant enough that even local journalists are noticing:

      >https://x.com/Sinaifhr/status/1791187963855974838

      Granted, M60s aren't exactly prime Merkava-hunting material, but the Egyptian government has been doing increasingly loud saber-rattling about the IDF rooting around Rafah and being in the Camp David Accords' Zone D.

      There's a few theories floating around from commentators who've been following things as to what's making the Egyptians react like this, but whatever's going on, the chances of things going kinetic between the EAF and IDF in the near future is definitely not zero at the moment.

        It's at absolute zero you fricking moron. Sisi and the military class are just putting on a show for the masses. They don't give two fricks about Gaza, and they'd probably be relieved if the IDF just bulldozed the whole place.

        Besides, everyone knows the Egyptian army is just for internal control and the occasional bullying of its weaker neighbors now.

          It's aimed at hamas and palestinian terrorists
          I was a conscript in sinai when it all began and i know it. No one even cared about israel at all

          1/4th of Egypts military budget is payed by the US, this is at most some pr stunt.
          I really dont think Egypt is in any position for a war, esp with the state their economy is in.

          And you just gave israel 1.5x its military budget in aid
          Maybe you should give us a fraction of these insane aid bills then

              On some ATGMs wikipedia pages I see mentions that there are thermobaric versions, are those missiles identical except a different warhead is put in at the factory? Are there any missiles where the warhead can be swapped out in the field?

        If Egypt’s stupid they might try to start a war to distract people from the economic misery, might even work against Israel since the Egyptian population hates them. Though again I think the risk might be too high for them to attempt it, after all we also know what happens when they lose the war and the distraction technique fails, looking at the Junta in Argentina after the Falklands war.

    Nosecone is usually a different material as the rest if the body. It is also colored differently so you don't bump or break it, especially since it has aerodynamic requirements as well as may contain sensors and often contains the fuse.

    The not bumping or breaking the fuse on the tip of the missile is a big reason.
