Dear Colleagues, can you explain to a a layman at what frequency stated in GHz an aircraft radar sends a CW signal and with what RF power to illuminate an aerial target so that it was clearly "visible" to an R-27R1/ER1's seeker at about 10 to 20 NM? What is the order of magnitude to make the system work correctly?

According to "MiG-29 Famous Russian Aircraft" by Yefim Gordon the R-27E and ET have a firing view of 110°.. just imagine that!

Plus or minus 55 degrees from centerline. Not sure why you find this remarkable though?

Hello Comrades,
I am curious about R-23T and R-24T missile since they are a BVR capable weapon that is retrofitted with Infrared Seeker instead of the Radar Seeker. Do you comrades got any idea what is the maximum lock range for the R-23T and R-24T IR seeker head both at rear and front aspect?

I found this stuff here on the last page but what does PMG and PPS and also ZPS means?

I believe PPS is the range in pursuit mode / rear aspect and ZPS is frontal..

ЗПС задная полусфера = ZPS rear hemisphere
ППС передная полусфера = PPS front hemisphere

PMG is obviously relating to the engine mode of the F-16 target, my guess would be not afterburner, maybe Mil thrust?

From where is that screenshot of the R-23's specifications in detail? A manual if so which one?
