Typically, the seeker will turn on x km before the target and the ground FCR radar shuts off its guidance. Having said t...

It is 2D guidance, not 3D My understanding is the lift generated gets altered due to the spin and any deviation in range gets corrected (within limits) However the sidewise errors can't be.
