Like yourself, I have been on both sides of the fence (a good deal more recently than yourself!) and know exactly how the system operates. Surely you are not telling me that a modern processed radar is not as good as the vintage raw picture from the lold lightweight set where the operator is looking through a prism to see the picture? Anyway, if it is, why have the RAF just refitted there a/c with a processed unit?

I wasn't going to enter the them and us debate as it is irrelevant to the thread but the patronising attitude of some military SAR boys does them no favours.
