    How would you know? You're in the AC & the Flycatcher's an AD weapon. Are you referring to a particular incident?

        My understanding is many more countries than the Netherlands operate the Flycatcher, can it really be that bad?

        ps Mod, interested to see you removed sensitive data, I would have thought you can't get much more sensitive than "potency"?

          Is it the radiation or the pollution from the generators that is causing the trouble?

          Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

            Well if it's dead seagulls surely you can use it to zap the f'in' pidgeons. Rats with wings I tells ye!

              IF this is true, it has interesting echoes to another story:

              That said, the damaging potential of radars is well recognised.

                I wonder if the army will have to pay compensation if this got leaked to the public?? thats all we need even more money lossed from the defence forces.

                    Radar has long been known to have ill-effects on people. Standing too close to a major warship radar such as SPS-49 or the APY-1 on the E-3 Sentry will kill you in not very long at all.

                    That said, I think unless the birds have been landing on the center of the Flycatcher dish, there's some exaggeration involved.
