more info about the aircraft here
Personally I hate it.
What is that box under the plane?
I think it’s a radar sensor, it’s only on one side of the aircaft
I don’t like it
It’s antennas that records all the aircraft and missiles in said training area
Looks like a water plane haha
Thanks for fact checking
Didn’t know you did, I was just sitting here next to it talking to one of the pilots
I read a quick fact sheet on the USAF website about the aircraft, didn’t see any info about the ‘white box’ explicitly, so I assumed it was a radar sensor
MaxSez: your right Captain the pod is a SLAR (Side Looking Airborne Surveillance Radar) Array. The antenna are COMINT (Communication Intercept) arrays.
This boy gottya within 50/100 nautical miles and can vectors on call interceptors. In reality It’s part of the maritime/boarder Homeland Security Network which includes fixed balloons.
I hate it personally! It looks Aweful to me.
