Air Radar in Planes randomly doesn’t work sometimes.

So I really enjoy flying. Not saying flying in this game is amazing I just enjoy flying in all battlefield games. Flying in this game Definitely leaves a lot to be desired and needs a lot of work. But sometimes the air raider I have equipped on my G2 and my VA just simply don’t work. It’s not all the time because they do work sometimes and sometimes they don’t. To the point where multiple times I’ve gone out of the game to check to make sure I have the specialization equipped. Is this just me?

    The resupply mechanic is broken when an AA tank camps on it.

    I'm pretty sure there is a bug that stops some planes from showing on your radar. I know some games it will be specifically one pilot wont show after I have died or he dies but other planes will.

    However, I was told in game the other day that the smoke screen ability, which I had thought to be utterly useless, actually removes your plane from radar for a period of time. This, if true, actually makes that spec worth something.

    I wonder if this is a bug or some sort of "don't wait in the spawn" feature they put in the game.... I hate when thi shappens to me, I sit there waiting for my plane only to see someone else flying away without ever having seen an available spawn....

    That probably is the case as that is how it has worked historically and on the ground using smoke on yourself removes spotting. But Smoke screen was never useless to begin with. It did a good job at throwing off ground based AA which allows you to escape if you've wandered too deep into their range.

    You mean when a plane flies out of the 250m range, or gets close to the ground it doesn't work? Sounds like its working as intended.

    That's not at all what OP was saying. An no, this doesn't happen only when out of the 250m range or close to the ground. If it does have to do with smoke as someone suggested i wonder why I have never sene smoke when checking my rear for one of those "invisible" planes....

    I think its two separate issues. The smoke might really be to take you off radar because it is absolutely useless in every other way. Its barely visible. There must also be a bug that is occurring that causes someone, even after they have respawned a new plane to be invisible to radar 100% of the time.

    I was dogfighting the other day and noticed that my target was popping in and out of radar while he was hugging the ground. Sounds like below radar is a feature in the game.
