umm... I think the AWACS aircraft have infinit range. Is that right? thats what it seems like to me. can any one confirm?

DCS Wishlist: 1) FIX THE DAMN RIVERS!!! 2) Spherical or cylindrical panorama view projection. 3) Enhanced input options (action upon button release, etc). 4) Aircraft flight parameter dump upon exit (stick posn, attitude, rates, accel, control volume, control-surface positions, SAS bias, etc). 5) ADS-33 maneuver courses as static objects. 6) Exposed API or exports of trim position and stick force for custom controllers. 7) Select auto multiple audio devices

Not true...

 

AWACS can't see thru hills and mountains like back in LO 1.0 but they also don't take horizon into account.

 

Horizon is something that acts like an obstacle IRL so altitude is very important matter for determining RMax of AWACs aircraft. If you fly 1000m ASL you won't see far (horizon is cca 50 km away) but if you fly at 10000m your horizon will increase to cca 250 km. Same thing happens with AWACs abd radar signals.

 

Best AWACS presented in game is E-3 Sentry, it has most powerful radar signal strenght and biggest range (cca 350 km), while Russian Mainstay and E-2 Hawkeye sometimes can't see fighters flying at 40 km distance @ 200m altitude.

 

I can't speak for sure if this is true or not IRL, I never gained any reliable info on AWACs systems but I know that Russian VVS relies on EWRs more than on Mainstays but those EWR datalinks and radio comms don't work at all in 1.12a...:doh:

well, i was taking about just lloking for a 2000m high aircraft. AWACS can see that just about anywhere if both of them are in the black sea region in lockon. and yes, i'm sorry i didn't mention that earlyer. I know they cannot sea thru hills.
