Does the AWACS set radius sexp actually work and if so how? I was playing with it a bit to see the difference but there wasn't any.

Nebula was set at 3000 and awacs radius was set at 6000.

Actually, I think the AWACS radius is fixed, and the radius in the SEXP is the radius in which friendly fighters will pick up the AWACS signals.  I don't know how accurate that is tho

There's an AWACs setting for intensity / radius in the tbl files- maybe this defines the max of the ship, so above a certain range there is no difference.

I'm surprised that the defective Setekh class hasn't shown his arrays in here yet...
