3.5 Using your Radar

The radar system has a field of view of 130 degrees vertically and side-to-side. Radar automatically locks onto the closest threat in its field of view. A locked target is displayed as a solid block. Other hostile targets are displayed as hollow squares.

Targeting information is displayed in the lower right corner of the display. The top number is the heading of the locked target, the next number is the relative heading you should steer to intercept the target (displayed as "ddd R", and the third number is the rate that you are closing with this target, expressed in knots.

You can lock onto other targets by pressing the target designator key (Q).
