What about avoiding SAMs? In the future an IADS can be the toughest brick wall to get through.
Radar-guided SAMs have ridiculously low Pk, and stealth does not help avoid IR SAMs. Meaning that old “30” rule – safest altitudes are below 30 and above 30.000 feet – still holds true.
Also, You probably knew this but apparently the F-22s skin absorbs cell and radio signals. Which is why my friend in the airforce says that passive radar doesn’t really work on the F-22.
No, it doesn’t, and I believe that I have adressed the issue in the F-22 analysis.
Yeah but you also mentioned its short ranged, It takes alot of processing power to use and is prone to false alarms.
It is all true, which is why we haven’t seen any passive radars in active service and why VHF radars, for now at least, remain a more attractive counter-stealth option.
