I guess it was a very simplistic simulation, but I would love to see some sort of illustration of this new tech. Gosh I love this stuff!!!
Yes, I remember that there was something about raycasting for the the MiG-21 radar too. I think this is why it can detect clouds as well. Another radar that is using raycasting in DCS is the ground mapping radar of the Viggen.
