With VR-Forces, we’re always looking for ways to create scenarios that more accurately represent the experience of battle and give instructors as many real-world features for training as possible. In VR-Forces 4.6, we take a step forward in our capacity to simulate electronic warfare, with improved radar system and jammer functions:
Let’s take a look at what those new features look like in action, when an SA-21 SAM System and a MiG-29 jet fighter detect an incoming EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft:
As the scenario begins, we see that the Prowler has been detected by the SA-21 and the MiG, and they begin classification.
The Prowler recognizes that it has been detected, and enables jamming. In this case, the Prowler chooses to jam the SA-21 specifically - this is published on the network and indicated here by the purple line.
The Prowler adds the MiG to it’s jamming list. Note the two purple lines as indicators, also that the MiG and SA-21 detect “no contacts”.
VR-Forces supports individual track jamming (as seen above), complete jamming (which jams all nearby tracking entities), as well as effective angles (jams all tracking entities in a particular direction).
