According to the information from AFM magazine 05/2004 and the PDF at:

http://www.iee.org/oncomms/pn/radar/Roulston.pdf

1. The maximally effective detective / tracking range of CAPTOR to F/A-22 (Minimal frontal RCS = 0.00015~0.00052m2 class) in head-to-head engagement should be 17~31 km 11-18mi. / 12~19 km now theoretically. 9.2/11.4 mi

2. After 2012~2015, the maximally effective detective / tracking range of CAPTOR-AESA to F/A-22 today (Frontal RCS = 0.00015~0.00052 m2 class) should be 30~54 km / 21~33 km 18-32.4 mitheoretically.

According to the information from Mr. Billsweetman and the PDF at:

http://www.iee.org/oncomms/pn/radar/Roulston.pdf

1. The maximally effective detective / tracking range of CAPTOR to F/A-22 (Minimal frontal RCS = 0.00015~0.00052m2 class) in head-to-head engagement should be 13~19 km 11.4-13mi/ 10~13 km 6-11.4minow theoretically.

2. After 2012~2015, the maximally effective detective / tracking range of CAPTOR-AESA to F/A-22 today (Frontal RCS = 0.00015~0.00052 m2 class) should be 23~33 km 13.2-19.8mi/ 17~23 km10.2-13.8mi theoretically.

Ok now I can read it. Good info thanks.
