Now we have a Map mode radar only, not suitable for target acquisition-tracking.
When we will have EXP and other modes, i think the radar become more useful; probably not like the tpod, maybe...

A/G radar's resolution is so low that most targets can't be seen.
Even in ideal conditions, where the targets can be seen, A/G radar's accuracy is simply not good enough for weapon employment.

Tpod designation is still faster and way more accurate as far as I can tell.

We'll see how the finished A/G radar compares to Tpod... for now, I'll keep it disabled.
That's exactly what people who know about the A/G radar have been saying for month's: it isn't generally used all that often IRL due it's limitations, it's not a silver bullet etc. etc.

In order for the radar to provide any kind of usable resolution, it will have such a reduced range and scan size that its effectively seeing the same area as a tpod.

Anything more coarse than that and all you are seeing will be islands airfields and cities, something that can be found using the moving map just as well.

Itll come in handy for finding moving targets like convoys etc. It was certainly handy in F4 and IM looking forward to it being in game here
