RPK-10 Soviet radio beacon receiver

Recommended Posts

I have noticed many soviet fighters are able to mount RPK-10 receiver as a modification.

Were this devices used by air defence fighters only or frontline fighters also?

Where was an antena for the receiver located? I don't see any additional antena on 3D model when using RPK-10, did it use some existing antena?

I think the antenna (at least in the Yak-1 series 69) is located behind the pilot seat, you can see it through the little cutaway windows behind the sliding canopy, from the aircraft's side.

There seems to be a bug with the rendering of the antenna loop on the Yak-1 S.69: appearing when it's not installed and vice versa. I've reported it to the devs.

I asked one of the devs, and he told me that while the Yak-1 S69 had the loop antenna behind the seat, the other planes (Yak-1B, Yak-7B, La-5, La-5FN, Il-2 M43) had it positioned underneath the tail, inside the fuselage. So, that's why you don't see it.
