Default New ED AA Radar/RWR and the F14

Hello Heatblur,

after the announcement yeterdays of ED that there will be a new Air to Air radar technology, can we expect that the F14 will use it during the early access or at some point later on?

Many thanks!

I think the MiG-21 already did use a similar implementation for its A-A radar as the one ED has now announced. I'm not sure though. The Viggen is using such a technology for its ground mapping radar.

Speaking of the ground mapping radar. Is the Viggen ground radar simulation close to what it is in reality? With the new radar tech coming for both air and ground I wonder if teams will update existing modules for a better simulation?

It's actually pretty good already. They did some great work on that one!

Which new Air-to-Air radar are you referring to?

Our radar is custom and it may already be at an equivalent simulation level to ED's Hornet. We're no strangers to seeking high fidelity custom solutions to important features, especially like the AWG-9.

Great bread ! And that answers the question! I hope soon we would get more infos about how the radar and RWR are simulated!
Looking forward!

Seeing as you wrote your own radar for this thing, will it have the AWG-9's (admittedly rudimentary) ground mapping mode?
