    It's a RADAR Warning Receiver, so it detects RADAR threats, not IR threats.

    JR just meant he didnt get a missile launch warning from his MWS on his RWR...but being in an urban environment like that the buildings may have obscured the flash of the launch from the detectors.

    Grizzly...the bleepy thing with lights that screams at me when some a-hole with a golf bag over his shoulder just sent a whole lot of bad my way, call it what you want. It was just very, very quiet prior to taking that in the tenders, that's all i know. :-)

    If i recall correctly the RWR actually is integrated with the MWS (missile warning system) that works with any kind of missile, not only with the radar guided missiles.

    I'm not sure how it works in the A10C, but IF it's integrated, RWR is obviously not the correct term for that display, because the RWR is, just like the MWS, just a subsystem of the self defence package. A more fitting name for the display would be Tactical Threat Display.

    Leave it alone sir!!! Even those of is that work A-10s call it the RWR even though technically it isn't called that.
