This is what Real radar in WW2 looked like and since WG's wants to be as authentic as possible I thought I would show this so they can add it to the game. Note: you have to do a little math to actually know where to fire your guns! Copied from Wikipedia: The original radar display, the A-scope or A-display, shows only the range, not the direction, to targets. Some people referred to these displays as R-scopes for range scoped. A-scopes were used on the earliest radar systems during World War II, notably the seminal Chain Home (CH) system. The primary input to the A-scope was the amplified return signal received from the radar, which was sent into the Y-axis of the display. Returns caused the spot to be deflected downward (or upward on some models), drawing vertical lines on the tube. These lines were known as a "blip" (or "pip"). The X-axis input was connected to a sawtooth voltage generator known as a time base generator that swept the spot across the display, timed to match the pulse repetition frequencyof the radar. This spread out the blips across the display according to the time they were received. Since the return time of the signal corresponds to twice the distance to the target divided by the speed of light, the distance along the axis directly indicates the range to any target. This was usually measured against a scale above the display.
First I have to say.. ITS BROKEN. Being able to see the enemy IF' 1 of my/their team SEE's the other..IS STUPID.. You might add a Shadow, giving a suggestion of WHERE something is, but NOT A VISUAL TARGET. Iv seen it, Iv used it, Iv watched team mates DESTROYED BY IT... The Battleships has best view range, and Should not see everything that a Destroyer is seeing 4+ squares away.. Destroyers have small profiles and cant be seen by Battleships until they are reasonably Close..But Iv seen them shoot Long range and kill the destroyers. Iv seen 3 focus fire the last few destroyers..from the NEXT OVER Control point.. Radar/sonar...DO NOT tell you where and WHAT it is..they tell you SOMETHING is over there. and its not SUPER accurate, and does not show you the VISUAL TARGET.. you MIGHT get an average size of the ITEM on radar/sonar, but nothing more. Please fix this. Even the example you show...Shows that it shouldnt be happening.
