    I am sure that he is operating on the platform and/or using it's detection data. I hope you also know that many scientists claimed that Indian Nuclear Tests were dud :D

    There is a reason why names are not used here and we try and remain anonymous.

    Enjoy two of my clicks :)

    You can look for them on internet, you won't find them. They are my personal clicks ... so I hope you get what I am telling you.

    A poor distraction remains the same, no matter which language you use and is actually beneath you!
    Again, my point was that the P8I has no early warning capability, since it doesn't scan Land/Air/Sea as your own silly quote states, but has a maritime surveillance radar!

    You can keep denying that fact and distract, but that doesn't change it.

    The fact that you avoided to answer the question on Saabs and Eltas new AWACS with ADDITIONAL sensors and not only 1 additional mode, is quiet telling as well. Another distraction from the obvious. If you can't or don't want to answer properly just leave it at that.

    you got it all wrong. when I said ship based sensors, it includes sub surface/ELINT sensors also. P-8I is very highly networked and can do all the jobs of an AWAC but its A2A detection range is certainly not as high as that of an AWAC but in consort with ships, the area dominated by P-8I increases. I used a word High altitude and over the horizon also. I hope you get the hint.

    I believe on the data provided by you (200NM) and data provided by him (less than 180kms) for aerial detection and targeting equally. It has wide gap between both ranges.

    DRDO scientists will not give out actual ranges or capabilities in any open literature or forum. Take it from someone whose dad was a director in the DRDO.

    Yaar, baba, in all my talks with me never gave me actual numbers or figures. But, that could also be because I could never keep my mouth shut. :blah:Anyways, let's end this discussion. Back to topic.

    Bro, his ego and self-importance is bigger than facts and figures.

    Anyway, ranges change depending on the target. MKI has a range of 300+Km as well as <100Km depending on the target and its probability of detection.

    Its not about ego but where is the facts and figures (with credible source) for air detection and targeting.
    :haha:

    A user has given you the range. There's no bigger source than a user.

    Nobody doubts it's network capability, the core issue here was the fact that people believed that it can deliver the same A2A detection as an A50 Phalcon for example, just because it has some A2A modes.
    And that this is not the case is what you confirmed as well.

    :disagree: :lol:

    @Hellfire @vstol jockey

    I've dealt with such people before on this forum. Forget it, you don't have a chance.

    In L and S band the attenuation of radio wave due t clouds, fog etc is minimum..

    That's the detection range. When in tracking mode the range is depreciated. Second the FOC thematically of P8 is 360 degree, but due to movable gimlet against fixed antenna which enable the superior continous tracking and battle management mode,.

    @randomradio you got spanked badly by X killer and is just arguing for the sake of argument. Just closing your eyes snd not lookin at the mirror at your back doesn't change the fact.
