It’s a radar contact with negative closure speed = moving away from you.

Since RDI is working (mainly) in HFR mode, it can detect and measure closure speed at the same time. It’s like merging RWS and Velocity Search from US radar (modes available in Tomcat to stay in DCS World).

Thanks for your contributions otherwise though, really informative!

And great work to y'all at RAZBAM on the updates and work on the radar, between this and Zeus' other post from last week it looks very comprehensive and I look forward to some of the still-unresolved facets mentioned in the other thread getting hammered out in the coming weeks. The Mirage will continue to be very interesting to fly and operate with these updates.

Hey pilots,
here the first working version of the new radar targets symbology.
Here are mixed targets at different speeds and altitudes.
Most of them around 280kts and 12K feet +/- 2000

First screen I'm at 400/17800 then I cut engine and climb to 19200 and almos stall.

I actually could take a video... uhmmm but let's wait for feeback from AdA.

Nice! That explains it

So now it can see a slow cold target that's lower at 35nm? Has the performance changed or those targets were B-52 bombers?

The bar on top or bottom is top or bottom line of the scan (like lines 1 & 4 on 4 lines scan).
So if a contact disappears you know if you have to move the scan zone up or down to get it back.

B52 and others big aircrafts, the radar features and performances are under review.
