Does anyone know where I can find a primer on how to use the RWR and ECM in SF2? I'm not bad with stick and rudder, and I can use my radar now, but I'm worthless at reading the RWR or knowing when to use ECM.

 

I don't have my print manual anymore and the online manual for SF2 doesn't have any usefull info.

Worth searching for old topics I would say as well

 

 

 

 

 

TEWS from Thirdwire:

 

The ALR-69 RWR display can identify radar type and display different symbols. The symbols you're likely to encounter in the game are:

 

2 = SA-2

6 = SA-6

8 = SA-8

Z = ZSU-23-4 AAA

21 = MIG-21

23 = MIG-23

15 = F-15

F4 = F-4

F0 = F-104/F-105

M3 = Mirage III

U = Unknown

S = Search radar

V = M163 Vulcan AAA

 

(hopefully these are pretty self-explanatory)

 

Radars guiding missiles have flashing circle around them.

 

Priority threat (the tracking radar with highest signal) will have a diamond displayed around it.

 

Keep in mind that this can only identify radar type, and not the exact aircraft type. For example, MIG-23MS, which is an export model with MIG-21 radar, will show up as "21", not "23".

 

Most add-on planes will not be identified (show up as "U") unless additional data is added -

Also, even aircraft with older RWR "vector" display has slightly new feature. On aircraft with up front RHAW control panel, it'll light up different SAM button (LO/MID/HI band light) depending on radar frequency, so you can roughly determine the type of SAM radar tracking you.

 

Eary and late SA-2 (SA-2 B and SA-2 F) will indicate LO freqnecy band light

 

Mid-year SA-2 (SA-2 C and SA-2 E) will indicate MID freqnecy band light

 

SA-6 will light MID freqnecy band light while its searching/tracking, but moves to HI frequency band when guiding missile. But this missile guidance may not be detectable on some RWR (its using CW type radar for guidance).

 

SA-8 will light HI freqnecy band light
