How do I distinguish IR missiles and Radar missiles?

I have recently unlocked F104A but I'm having a hard time flying it. Nearly every match there is a Mig 21 shooting radar missiles from space. Since my jet doesn’t have RWR or chaff it’s hard to dodge it. Also Mig21's radar missiles are quite faster than usual IR missiles of that br range. So often times I mistook them for usual slow IR missiles. So is there any way to identify which type of missile my opponent is firing?

The IR missiles should be rear aspect only at that BR (you gotta take a look at the possible AAMs of other planes at that BR).

Radar missiles can be launched from any angle if the enemy has a lock on you. 

So if the enemy plane ain't on your 6'ish it probably is a Radar missile. From your 6 it can be both as only a Radar lock is needed.

I don't think there is another way of identifying a missile coming at you without RWR

 

(Not considering all aspect IR missiles here)
