So?? Does that not mean Tejas has >120+km radar range?You are comparing apple with oranges here, a bvr races towards its target, and its range is defined as the distance covered by it until the motor burns out in a certain flight path configuration. It still needs guidance from fighter radar to close in before it can turn on its own radar and track the target itself for the kill. That is why the range of radar should outmatch the bvr missile range to effectively guide it to its target.
If Tejas Uttam radar has a ~100km range then how to acquire weapons-quality lock on bogey & vector Astra with 120+km range up to the point where it goes pitbull?
