Your localized, short-range radar is an invaluable dogfighting tool and allows you to keep an eye out of targets, their heading, and even their Missiles. The radar can only show you the enemy position in a 2D plane; to see their actual location, you have to press and hold the Triangle button for the camera to focus on the selected target. This is useful for planning your next move.
