Not that datalink was ever used operationally it's still rather cool. I'd LOVE to do a datalinked GCI in DCS
After a good bit of reading, all the publications I have say the Data Link was not fitted
or in UK Armed Forces termology Fitted For but not actually Fitted

But if it was it should come up on the navigation display, and it may be referenced in one of the as yet still restricted manuals.

Also have very little detail on the Redtop missile, some engagement charts but nothing like gimble slew speed or seeker range or even speed (should be somewhere around 3.5M)

LOFL... Gotta love the MOD... How long has it been out of service now?

Either way, its one of my favorite aircraft and should be great fit for the mid cold war era migs we have/will get. Actually I'm really hoping for a decent 70's/80's era plane set coming in the next few years. Mirage F1's, Kfir, A7E, Mig23, Sea Harrier, whatever deka decides to do might fit too. We also need a decent Red Striker, so hopefully someone does a Su-17/22 or Su-25A as well.

I had absolutely no idea Lightnings were fitted for a lazur type system

That would be a toy really worth having if possible

Looks absolutely incredible. It was my favourite plane as a young boy after watching it scream past at an airshow back in the 70s.
Thank you for deciding on this project. Can we expect this within the next 12 months?
