      yes, if fired from certain aspects

      lmao what's fun about this aircraft is the Russians don't have datalinks with their aircraft so the radar operator has to radio everything he sees, and he's probably drunk and napping.

        Russians have had datalinks since the '70s or '80s anon, they rely very heavily on ground controller guidance and have it heavily automated.

        They do actually have datalink in their aircraft lol. Although how well it performs and the extent of data it provides is questionable.

          Just adding on. Soviet and later Russian doctrine heavily emphasises by the book textbook flying with practically scripted actions by their GCI because no one likes taking the risk of having pilots think for themselves. They have datalink but they might still be talked onto specific actions to do while they intercept.

            The interception and shooting down of KA-007 is a pretty good example of GCI doctrine.

          Moskva, exemplar of superior Russian air defense, being incapable of searching and tracking at the same time while also making operators want to gouge their own eyes out after 30 minutes of operation, comes to mind.

            I'd rather be surrounded by mutts than be forced by the government to pay for BBC pedos tbh.

    The radar equipment inside the radar dome is probably stolen so AGM-88 Harm would be useless

    Could? Yes
    It is unlikely too though. The A-50 is in motion (and not on the ground) which will severely hamper its ability to actually connect (with a bit of luck you might clip the tail) against any angle of attack except dead head-on. Also, given the context I assume you are asking this in relation to a Ukraine fired agm88 in which its even less likely as they are not able to actually properly integrate it onto their soviet airframes and are using it in a reduced capacity.

      Ok, another question.
      Could it attack EW/SIGINT systems?
      Like pic related.
      I guess it definitely should work if jammer works into the same spectrum as radar emission.
