To be able to charge a homing missile you must first have entered Dog Fighting Mode (DFM). In this mode you will be directly behind the enemy plane. In the middle of your screen will figure a more or less large circle. The closer you are to the enemy the bigger the circle.

Keep the enemy plane inside the circle and you will notice a second circle growing in a clockwise fashion inside the initial circle. The charge speed depends on your ability to keep the circle centred on the enemy. Fill this circle completely and fire a missile using cn_B. Depending on the enemy it might take several missiles as he might have a lot of health or use a flare.

Using your machine gun by pressing the cn_A will somewhat "stun" the enemy plane and you will have an easier time locking on. This effect depends on the difficulty level you are playing at.
