General info / usage

This only a tracking radar, this means it can lock onto targets and provide a firing lead indicator, but cannot by itself detect targets and place them on the radar display. However all vehicles the radar is fitted on in-game are also equipped with various search radars; this allows them to use their search radar to detect targets, while this radar is tracking a target. The Gepard tracking radar can track targets in a 200 degree arc from the front of the turret, out to a maximum range of 15 km.

Comparison with analogues

Compared to other tracking radars, the Gepard's has an average maximum range and a good minimum range. The minimum relative speed is about average. The azimuth tracking angles are slightly wider than some other radars at ±100° (instead of ±90°). The negative elevation tracking angle is best in class, however the positive elevation angle is very slightly (2°) worse than other radars.

Pros and cons


  • Decent maximum range
  • Good minimum range
  • Good minimum relative speed
  • Better azimuth tracking angles than 1RL144 and SMA VPG-A06 radars


  • Radar cannot track targets through a full 360 degrees
  • Slightly worse positive elevation angle than other radars


Examine the history of the creation and combat usage of this radar.

An excellent addition to the article would be a video guide, as well as screenshots from the game and photos.
