Tucumseh - thank you for that bit of enlightenment ... my time with the SK was early test flying at Boscombe and it seemed to me that there was so much that could have been improved for its intended role - but compromise rules, as ever!
Tourist - the non-relevance of the forward arc for pinging was something which was said to me by my mentors at CulDrose when I did a short introductory course with them. I, generally, accept the view of them 'as knows about' these things. My personal view is coloured by the loss of two crews off Falmouth and two in the Gulf which MIGHT have been avoided by a forward radar view. "If wishes were horses" ... etc.!
