Where are you getting this from ?Isn't the "antenna" on the front MF-STAR actually the Varuna ESM ?
Mounting anything infront of a antenna that is not radar transparent should cause all kinds of problems. Especially if the radar is as powerful as the MF-STAR.
I know that. I was talking about how flat the radar antenna looks. MF-STAR's radome (antenna cover) has a rounded appearance.It actually is. Divided into two halves for 360 degree coverage. It’s kind of distributed aperture now.

The size of the radome may vary, but they all have the characteristic rounded shape.
