|Subject: WW2 Radar Systems - who had the best? 4/8/2014, 23:13|| |
As the war progressed, using that term, radar was being developed at a rapid pace by all sides during World War 2. The UK is reported to be first in developing this as a weapon against aircraft, ships etc. So at the end of the war with the development of centimetre systems, which country had the most accurate and reliable system - the UK, US and Allies, or were the German radar systems such as Wurzburg as reliable as our systems?
I have been to the Radar Museum at Neatishead in Norfolk. This is has a good comprehensive display of the history of radar in the UK, but not much info about other nations during this period of rapid development during the war years.
