In current DB3K databank, some vessels (e.g. those from US) has a Link 11 and a Link 14 datalink, while some others (e.g. those from China or Russia) only has UHF/VHF/HF radios. But despite the impressive range of Link 11/14 (typically ~300 nm), I wonder what's the key difference between Link 11/14 and generic radios? Is there any specific task that can only be fulfilled by Link 11/14? And how will the lack of these links affect the combat effectiveness of those vessels without them?

Good afternoon,
The range of your link depends on the Freq is operating on and with that all the pros and cons of those RF radios and frequencies, or other means of getting your info across. The amount and type of info differs greatly between the link systems, newer systems have faster data transfer and more data fields. Newer link has better protection against jamming and other interference from advisaries.
with regards GJ

I have the same question, the communication simulation is not perfect in CMANO.

There's no practical difference at the moment. More news on that front... soon

It's good enough for an entertainment product.

For no-kidding higher fidelity needs, there are other solutions, with Command-PE being a part of them.

Data links are based on generic radios, they have more messages and protocols for network management, command, control, intelligence etc.
I think, all above not simulated in COMMAND.

I think (not sure) that they are going to implement resistance for Comms Jamming, better the communication link, harder to jam.
