Forgot to mention that F-14B was just an interim step on the way to the F-14D. F-14D did not use AWG-9. It had the APG-71. This was based on an enhanced version of the APG-70 coupled with the high power transmitter and big antenna retained from the AWG-9 because the navy wanted the max detect and track range they could get along with the ability to burn through jam.
I agree with your facts, I've ready that several times from several sources. Radars are very interesting stuff. My question was how the AWG-9 compares to modern fighter aircraft FCRs. I'm sure the APG-71 still compares favorably to against modern systems, but had the F-14D kept the AWG-9 in its basic form, would it be superior to late model APG-68 systems in various air modes?
