From DCS Mig manual:
The expected (manual) range to target (often derived from AWACS and GCI data), as set
by [RCtrl-+] and [RCtrl--] keys and is indicated at the bottom of the HUD under the
azimuth coverage bar. The elevation coverage of the radar scan pattern is calculated from
this parameter.

It is used in combination with scanzone up/down to set up the radar for a known target.

If you for example know that a bandit is flying 20 km in front of you with an altitute of 3 km less than yours, then you would set the value in the bottom of the hud (distance to target) to 20, and the value in the right of the HUD (scanzone up/down) to -3.

This will set up the radar in such a way that a target in a distance of 20 km in front of you with an altitute 3 km lower than yours will be in the center of the radar cone.
