Radar Bug or Buff?


Recommended Posts

The Su-27 is a BIG bird, and something that big coming at you at Mach 1 will deliver a pretty decent radar return

RWS, Hi/Med PRF, 6 bar elevation and 140 degree azimuth scan. Bugged an F-16 at 85nm today too. As I said I actually really like this and hope it stays this way.

 

Seems legit to me. I've had the same experience as well. But I couldn't comment on whether or not that's realistic.

RWS certainly has the output power to see further than TWS for example, so could certainly illuminate a large airframe like the SU enough to pick it out at the ranges you state. The F-16 at 85 ish NM though, personally I would think the 16 should be able to get a little closer before being picked up, but in both cases target aspect should have a significant bearing.

Given the altitude, (and since I don’t think DCS simulates earth curvature) it seems quite plausible that it will be picked out.
