AoA maverick sir. I found out that iceman is your brother,read some of his posts and they are interesting. I suppose now he has left this forum. Why not try to bring him back. He may have interesting conversations with panzerkiel and others. Would like to learn from him.
Please don't mind..
Tamikhan, i am providing a second hand information for discussion, i will specualte this information too considering it miught be exaggerated, lets debate it. i will say it needs a lot more power as u said, then also it should have a bigger Radar dome on top considering its a S band. i agree with your assessment...
It must be 400-500KM, not miles, even the US with so much advanced tech and money has not come up with such a radar. 400-500 mile radar needs lot of power, which this Y-8 can't provide. Even the bigger Phalcon has something arounf 450-500KM range.
