Re Approval of this article

Regarding one of your Open Questions in your posting on the "2 Editor Approval" thread in one of the Forums, I am ready to nominate this article for approval. But there are two minor questions I would like to raise first:

  • The designation APG-63 (V)3 for the airborne radar in the F-15 Eagle fighter doesn't seem to jibe with the table that says G designates a Ground mobile system/device. It seems to me that item needs to be explained in the article.
  • Regarding the function in the table stated as Fire or searchlight control, I know that you meant fire control as in shooting a weapon. However, on first reading it came across as fire control as in controlling a conflagration. Is there any way to make clear that you mean fire control as in shooting a weapon? Offhand, I can't think of how to do that , but perhaps you can.

The meaning of a letter depends on its position. "G" does mean "ground" in the first position, but "fire control" in the third position. Third-position "Y" systems combine long-range tracking and final control, although the differences get a little soft. An AN/APG-63 radar can detect targets tens of miles away, and an F-15 certainly can find and attack targets with this alone. As far as I can tell, though, it's a "G" and not a "Y" because the Air Force expects that the far longer AN/APY-2 on the E-3 Sentry aircraft (i.e., what looks like a Boeing 707 with a flying saucer performing an unnatural act on top).
Made some clarifications. Eric Gearhart, among others, has been a user of the systems (at least Army ones) and can give a doublecheck. Howard C. Berkowitz 20:20, 19 January 2009 (UTC)

Howard, just a reminder

Howard, just reminding you to get Eric's contribution into this Talk page and decide what part or parts should be edited into the article ... before January 27th. Milton Beychok 10:12, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
