This is a 2nd generation radar, basically one step above a gunnery radar. So, no. It does not have IFF.


The MiG-19P does have an early IFF transponder. It was so secret that it even has a self-destruct button.

I hope it also has an on/off switch or a circuit breaker implemented in case BST implements the Combat Tree system on their F-4E's

Every Soviet IFF system, had tripled destruction system in order to avoid codes disclosure. Button for pilot, self destruction circuit switch on catapult's chair rails, and inertia self destruction switch when aircraft was hit by missile or hit ground.

Sorry Dudikoff but Combat Tree is a bullshit story, blue side never was able get real IFF codes. Warsaw Pact was using different codes from those from Vietnam or Middle East ( all military aircrafts sold outside WP had.....civilian IFF ). Soviets had several sets of codes for peace time and war time and every aircraft had additional device called "product 81" with special war time codes, so penetration IFF system by Combat Tree is a myth.

Also wasn't the thing only fitted to F-4Ds?

Anyway, to even think about implementing something like the Combat Tree would require a massive overhaul of the IFF logic in game, along with the needed AI improvements and changes to each and every individual module that has any sort of IFF transponder or interrogator. Given how touchy this subject is and how much work would be required, I don't see it happening.
