    The Swiss use the PC-9 to tow targets.

    How does shooting at ANYTHING a Cessna could be towing classify as training for air defence? Methinks anything with a jet engine would go at least three time as fast, no?

    I have heard that they are thinking about the cessna pulling a sort of sheet with metal stuck on it, so that the radar picks up the metal,however the rounds and shrapnel simply go through the sheet,with out causing too much damage, of course occasionally the line gets cut,so the aircraft lands, gets another sheet hooked on,and away you go again.

    And if you hit a remotely controlled drogue what would be different?

    No need for that - the system works, why change it?

    Air defence Regt-New targets required?

    Given the accuracy of the New 40mm Anti aircraft guns,and the Flycatcher Radar(Compared with the Old guns),is it time to do away with the Cessna Towing a Drogue target?
    It seems a dangerous practice in any case. Would remote controlled drones,towing drogues perhaps,be a better option?
