A software upgrade in 2001 was designated F. Block II development began in 1996 using a new focal plane array sensor to improve the missile's effectiveness in "high clutter" environments and increase the engagement range to about 25,000 feet (7,600 m)

My mistake, I was quoting the figures for the FIM-92C, not the F model. However that would still mean the range in game is incorrect, it being 1200m too low rather than 1500m too high.
