Problem with MIG-25PD Radar

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a slight problem with the radar on the Mig-25PD, The display does not change when I select Boresight and I can't change

the search range. The radar on the Mig-25P works fine. Where should I start looking, I have checked the avionics file but I'ts all a bit greek to me!

 

Cheers.

 

Mikeymead.

Here's some help reading the avionics.ini of the MiG-25PD

 

[AvionicsData]

AvailableModes=SEARCH,ACQUISITION,TRACK,BORESIGHT

RangeUnit=KM

RangeSetting[1]=20

RangeSetting[2]=40

RangeSetting[3]=70

RadarPosition=0.0,4.0,0.0

MaxElevationAngle=17.66

MinElevationAngle=-17.66

MaxAzimuthAngle=56

MinAltitude=1200.0

MinReturn=0.05

SearchRangeSetting=1

ScanPattern[1].BarElevation[1]=4.0

ScanPattern[1].BarElevation[2]=0.0

ScanPattern[1].BarElevation[3]=-4.0

ScanPattern[1].ScanRate=70

ScanPattern[1].ScanBeamAngle=6.0

ScanPattern[1].ScanArc=56

SearchRange=20

SearchStrength=25

SearchTargetTime=0.50

AcquisitionSymbolSpeed=1.5

AcquisitionTime=1.0

LostAquisitionTime=1.0

TrackRangeSetting=1

TrackCapabilities=

TrackRange=11

TrackStrength=20

TrackMemroyTime=5.0

BoresightRangeSetting=1

BoresightElevation=1.5

BoresightAzimuth=0.0

BoresightBeamAngle=12

 

As you can now see the radar of the MiG-25PD has only one range setting.

Thanks again Gocad,

 

Your explanation makes it quite clear, It seems strange to me that the improved Foxbat has only one search range and quite a short one at that, is that correct or does the Avionics ini need tweaking?

 

If the ini needs tweaking I'll have a play with it. It will be a good learning experience.

you can change the range settings but Im at a loss as to why you cant change modes.

The modes are changable, there's just no B-sweep of radar.

 

It IS working in all modes for me, there's just no 'vertical line' (B-Sweep) going back and fort, or fixed for borsight. There IS however, a inverted T that's designated the locked-on target
