Below Radar

Is this spec. still active or wtf? I can be flying right next to the ground and will still get locked on to with a missle. Do you have to run stealth for that to come into effect or is it a bug?

Also this doesn't really pertain to the thread but why does the ECM on the jet only spoof the missiles until it's gone, and then you still get hit by the missiles? That is stupid. I pop my ECM cloud and still get hit by the missiles after the ECM is done. If I don't want to get hit by them I have to fly right next to the ground so the missile hits the ground instead of circling me. Am I better off running flares or what?

Stingers and Igla's will lock on to an aircraft regardless if they have Below Radar active, it is not a bug but how DICE intended it to work with the latest patch. I saw a youtube video that said the range of AA missiles are around 400m. Stealth may be a more viable option in the first slot now, especially if both gunner and pilot are using it.

I have noticed there seems to be a bug with ECM on Jets, it takes forever to reload and will sometime not even reload if I die and spawn into a jet after using ECM, so I switched back to IR Flares in the Jet.

This seems like it should be in the general BF3, instead of the Armored Kill forum.

Anyway, Below Radar doesn't work against Stingers again, it seems DICE broke yet another thing with the latest patch.

Also, don't bother with the ECM Jammer on jets, it was messed up several patches ago, it does have some useful features, like taking you off Air Radar, but overall Flares are better. Even on choppers it doesn't always work properly (though, I still prefer it on them) or at least not like it did at launch.

Are you sure? I read that patch notes several times and it never said that they were removing the ability from Air Radar, just lowering the altitude at which it activated. Also, specs don't stack remember? :-P

Oh, and the ECM in the A-10 is glitched and actually delpoys flares now instead of chaff, lol.

People complain about Below Radar not working, but it is indeed working as intended. It's supposed to prevent Air to Air lock on not SAMs.

ECM hasn't ever worked correctly, it just delays your inevitable death.

I'm not sure of how it works as well. I unlocked it for the jets however i'm still being locked on by other jets. Does anyone know at what height you should be for the below radar kicks in?
