"When fired, one free-falling red star and 4 packs of radar reflective chaff are ejected at a height of 300m. The red star burns for 11 seconds at 30,000 candelas and the chaff produces a 60sq metre radar reflective chaff cloud, visible on radar screen for 12 minutes in light winds"
"The maximum theoretical radar cross-section return averages are 100 m2 for Radasound and 80 m2 for Radaflare; tracking is possible for 12 to 25 minutes dependent on wind conditions. Both rockets exclusively use Chem-Chaff aluminised glass fibre."
Looks like a useful addition to our armoury - not only will they decoy the Excocets but also the Sidewinders...........
