Basically it can replace da-20 as well and perhaps why paf expanded and added another sqn to cover the whole pak with erieye covering north and central commands and Chinese awacs covering south
lastly it has now GMTI so provide early warning for army
article in Air Force monthly indicated it’s ground surveillance was suppressed initially due to ground forces requesting in Greek case eventually looks like now it there
it CANNOT replace a dedicated EW platform, Erieyes carry a defensive electronic warfare suite, to protect themselves and nearby assets, EW is a very broad field with so many different aspects to it, you need numerous sensors, emitters, antennas, operators etc to be able to accomplish tasks. Theres a reason the E/A-18G has an EWO for example, and a F-15X, with its EPAWSS can operate without a backseater
yes, yes they can, missiles, bombs, all of these things will have an RCS. Hypothetical simulation puts this missile at -9.6dBsm, or 0.1m^2Don't know if this is the right place, but can standoff munitions like the REK, GB-6 etc..
Be detected by AEW&Cs? Or radars in general?
What about smaller ones like SDB or the SAAW?
