... the same fighter cover that can't follow it into deep strike missions?Su-34 mission is a ground work. If bomber is doing his mission without proper fighter cover,
MiG-31's are capable of intercepting any threat, be it a cruise missile, B-52, or F-15E.then something went horribly wrong long before it can meet any air threat. Same goes for Mig-31 who's targets are big and slow and can't avoid his 300+km range missiles.
Wow, you must play a lot of falcon 4 to know all that How's 'Home on Jam' going to be smarter than the radar that just got DECM'ed?Do the words "home-on-jamming" rings a bell in your head? What you said might work against single target without HOJ AA missiles, but against a proper group of adversaries any attempt to jam is just a "kill me faster!" invitation.
An awacs against a stealth fighter? Last time an F-22 and and AWACS and escort met up in red flag, the AWACS - and the escort - didn't know what hit them.And what if enemy has AWACS too?
Ground based radars have better things to do than trying to jam you - like guiding SAMs to shoot down your wingmen and hiding from your HARMs.b) If airplane-based limited in size and power radar can do it, then ground based radars can do it even easier.

HOJ modes are always a "last resort" because the likelihood of an intercept by the missile are pretty low. In training, if a missile or illuminating radar enters "HOJ", the shot is usually called invalid. This is because range is difficult if not impossible to determine, and the intercept geometry is screwed up.
Good explanation, Chogy.
I recall a (fairly, but not really) recent 'update' to the F-16 FCS included not invalidating a shot if the radar enters HoJ a short time after the missile is pickled (ie. you pickle, you get jammed before the missile leaves the rail, the launch was aborted. With the update it should launch with last known range data).
I don't understand what are you talking about. Why would fighter cover could not follow bomber?... the same fighter cover that can't follow it into deep strike missions?
Yes, tank can sink a submarine. Under certain conditions. So what?MiG-31's are capable of intercepting any threat, be it a cruise missile, B-52, or F-15E.
I do admit, i don't know much about how HOJ works.
Was F-22 jamming someone at the same time? If he did, it would compromise his stealth, that's the point i'm trying to make.An awacs against a stealth fighter? Last time an F-22 and and AWACS and escort met up in red flag, the AWACS - and the escort - didn't know what hit them.
Winter is coming.
No, it wouldn't compromise his stealth! Great, now you know there's SOMETHING out there that can jam you. Maybe you can somehow identify that it's an F-22, but you STILL don't know where he is...and oh by the way he probably already took a shot at you. Good luck evading when you don't even know where to look.
Stealth (low observable) just means harder to see. How does jamming you compromise that? Besides HOJ, since that's been hammered.
