How exactly does AWACS work? This aircraft is supposed to have radar or something otherwise it can't inform others about what's going on over the battlefield. I've heard of TacPack but I can't find a single payware nor freeware version of the E-3 Sentry that is TacPack powered, how are flight simulator pilots going to receive combat updates, single or multiplayer?
