Gladiatos,

In the US Tri-Service Designation System for Electronic Equipment the AN is the optional joint service indicator, indicating that a piece of equipment is used by more than one service (e.g. Air Force and Navy).

The keyword is of course <I>optional</I>, so to answer your second question, AN/APG and APG mean the same thing.

You can find more information about the meaning of designations in F-16.net's <a href="modules.php?op=modload&name=Sections&file=index&req=viewarticle&artid=25&page=1">US Tri-Service Designation System for Electronic Equipment</A> article.

As for your first question regarding the best radar on the market, I don't really know enough about radars to answer that, but I'm sure someone else will be able to offer some interesting thoughts.

Hope this helps

Best radar? Depends on the application but I would venture the B-2, F-22 and JSTARS have the best in their respective applications.
