I made a multiplayer mission, and I put a EWR near my base with a thought that it would really work as an early warning radar against incomming aircraft comming near the base in a certain parameter.
I also put an AWACS in the same multiplayer mission. Well, I guess that I don't need to write the purpose of it.
The problem was that AWACS used to be silent and mute when I needed reports. I was quite tired of this problem, and I am pretty sure that I used zillions of ways to make the AWACS talking. However, when I deleted the EWR then AWACS was quite chatty once more.
Is it a kind of bug in the game? I guess that many people don't use EWR in the missions.
If it has no work then is it a decoration that can be a real pain in the butt?
CONCLUSION: Don't put EWR if you want your AWACS chatty.
