Part of Steel Umbrella series, M.Corp integrated air/missile defence system.
M.Corp Tarantula is an autonomous point-defense surface-to-air missile system designed for protection of important locations, including airports, bases, cities, ports...
Tarantula A is a fixed SAM emplacement armed with twelve missiles and guided by SharpEye 2 radar. It has a range of 18000m, with engagement altitude of 1m - 12000m.
SA-1 is a fully autonomous system, requiring personnel only to set it up and reload. It processes data from the search radar, finds a target, and destroys it all by itself. It can track up to eight and engage up to five targets at once. Connecting multiple systems into battery greatly improves their capability.
SharpEye 2 radar is an active electronically scanned array (AESA) with a range of 28km for conventional and 21km for stealth targets. Its detection cone is 45°.
Targets are provided to the system via datalink.
Tarantula B is a planned vehicle-mounted version. It is believed that it'll be mounted on an MBT chassis.
Tarantula C is a proposed naval version. It is to be installed in a form of VLSs on smaller combat ships and guided by remotely mounted SharpEye 2 radar. It will contain between twelve and twenty missiles, depending on the ship.
- Activate1 - Activate the system;
- Trim + VTOL - Aim the system.
- V - activate decoys.
- High probability of hit missiles;
- Realistic platform;
- Manual aim and launch (I couldn't emulate autonomous operation);
- Lots of fun shooting down planes.
Even though SharpEye 2 is a Low probability of intercept radar, Tarantula is equipped with decoys. In reality, they would be placed around 100m from the radar, in a rough octagon. Decoys fluently change their frequency following the main radar with 0.1sec delay, and sometimes randomly switching to being 0.1sec ahead of it, making them almost impossible to differentiate from the main radar.
