Hi all , I was playing bf2 and was looking at the radar system theve got and wondered if the FH team were going to intriduce some radar into the up and comming versoin of FH2. Im sure there were mobile radar trucks around back then. Yeah sure you wouldnt get much points for using this but its all about the team and if your wiating for a plane then why not use the radar. Just something to think about, im new to this forum thing so if you have already discussed this then no probs sorry to bother you..
Well welcome to the forum! :)
Mobile radar? well.. i dont know, radars back then were HUGE and really.. crappy.
There were mobile radars in WW2.
I would call it more like semi-portable.
I know the British invented RADAR, to detect German bombers. I also know there where planes (mostly nightfighters (sp?)) with radar installed in the nose, but i didn't know they already had mobile radar stations. Oh wait, now that i think of it, i saw a "mobile" radarpost in Tora Tora Tora, so it did excist. It has to be, everything in a hollywood film is 100% historicaly correct
that RADAR was real. It was a trailer and the antennae were set up next to it. To best of my knowledge there wasnt a truck or tracked vehicle mounted version that drove around the battlefield. Most were trailers or platforms that could be disassembled, moved, and set back up somehere else.
EDIT: The RDAR at Pearl Harbor was a SCR-270 series portable RADAR station that required at least 4 vehicels to move everything and a platoon of men to take it down and set it up again.
