    Don't you think that the radar on board this plane is quite small(just a layman observation)

    No. Il-38N is an ASW plane, not AWAKS or JSTARS :). And BTW it is AESA on updated N version.

    OLD is GOLD Indian Nave IL 38 With sea eagle ASM

    The Base Commander and crew pose with a Sea Eagle missile on the Il-38. The aircraft carried out drop trials with KAB-500-M62 bombs launched from the same pylons, as a preclude to live Sea Eagle launch tests. HAL Bangalore was a key partner involved in the project

    Special pylons attached to the aft fuselage just behind the wing, provide for the carriage of the Sea-Eagle AsHM on the Il-38 MPA. Although the missile itself is large, it's size is miniscule compared to the giant Il-38. Both Il-38s are Tu-142s are popular among maintenance crew even if putting one of these giants in the air requires tremendous effort. Both Tu-142Ms and Il-38s were instrumental in the location, tracking and capture of the LTTE mercenary ship 'Progress Light' in 1988. (Indian Navy, via B Harry)
