This was the ideal place for it in the low-level environment, but at high-level, the vast area of the Vulcan's wing caused a considerable degree of radar signal blanketing. The jet should have had switchable upper and lower aerials. Operating over Spadeadam at low-level enabled Vulcans to manoeuvre, jam and drop chaff to counter systems replicating Soviet equipment, including radars associated with the SA-2 and SA-3 missiles and the ZSU-23 AAA gun system.

During low-level free-fall bombing, an aircraft could be damaged as its own bombs exploded beneath it. The weapons could also bounce on impact because of their trajectory and hit the bomber.
