Is there any air attack profile (100 feet,1000 feet, attack bombers,FBs, DBs ec) that targets land-based radars more than other devices like squads or guns?

Best way to destroy radars is with infantry

Did they even do anti-radar air raids during WWII? No seeking missiles, no precision bombing, antennas are cheap to build, other parts are relatively small and mobile

Commando raids on known installations or bombing of factories is another story

I've noticed my own radar being knocked out by a lot of bombing. And I do mean a lot....GP

You just disable the parent unit enough and there is nobody left to run the thing.

Bomb the mines producing radar ore.

Trouble is, the bombed the antenna towers which were easily rebuilt but couldn't find the camouflaged trucks with the actual radar set in them.

There was one modified B-25D flown by Vic Tatelman in the 345th BG nicknamed Dirty Dora II that was fitting with radar homing equipment. It flew 20 missions late in the war and destroyed 8 radars.

None.

Radar is just a device. Air missions do not target per se specific types of devices. They will focus more on the ground units associated with the type of mission they are flying. Hence:


  • Ground Attack - focus on strongest AV unit
  • Airfield Attack - focus on units supporting airfield operations
  • Port Attack - focus on units supporting port operations


The focus is not exclusive as other factors, eg detection levels, are also relevant.

+1, set your bombers to airfield attack and get high DL, where possible.
