Aircraft visibility

Post by Admin (Dietrich) »

I got this from a post on the DCS forums. https://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p= ... stcount=96

The following article is a scientific attempt to model the visibility of aircraft for different parameters. It is an academic work, but it might be of interest to those who are concerned about visibility.

That oaoer has been discussed quite a bit.

Im summary: ranges from 5 to 50km are presented for high-contrast + clear conditions and depending on size.
0.5 to 5km under worst conditions.
