Whether it does or does not, the Bison radar gets clogged with ground returns when it looks towards the ground, I doubt I'd be able to pick out the contact through all that.

You can still lock the contacts. you will not have SA but if you can block it you can kill it.

It depends on the altitude and attitude.

I use ARC when I am close to the hot area (look for the closest station in that area) and if I want more accurate position in low altitude where RSBN do not reach, then I ask to AWACS direction to Home Plate and then you will get your position respect your base.

About inverted in interception and radar. I guess you are intercepting in a climb, also I guess you use your radar only in this climb because your radar is for the last moment of the interception. At day time I use radar if it is too cloudy and when I carry R-3R. The use of the radar in day time is not always needed. Radar is for bad weather condition and night time. In dogfight only use R-60 missile.

That mean 80% of your interception flight is low altitude and 20-25% climb to the target with only this climb moment radar on

The person do different than that, don’t know how use Mig-21
