  • Notes on Naval Combat Features

    • Current implementation of "Sonar" reuses the current Radar code. Future state will have dedicated windows and naming convention
    • Activating a "Sonar" pod still says "Activate Radar"
    • A Sonar is defined by setting the rwrThreatType = 6
      • Sonar rules
        • Will only detect vessels that are underwater (> 20meters)
        • Sonar will not function if vessel is in flight
        • Sonar does not detect "Landed" vessels, only splashed
        • Normal Radar does not detect underwater vessels, still detects "Splashed" i.e. Boats
    • Engagment type "SLW" only targets underwater (submarines) and Splashed (Boats)
