Re: I thought RCS was like aero on scale models

That makes a lot of sense, about scaling down the wavelength with the size.
Now here is a question (and if its a stupid one, my excuse is that I barely made the final in high frequency technology way back during my studies):
I read that with a good stealth design the size of the aircraft has no effect on the RCS. In other words you supersize a stealth aircraft by factor 10, and it still has the same RCS. Now, is that at the same frequency, or would that imply scaling the frequency with it, as in your example?
And, wouldn't the RCS be a function of the frequency? In other words, if you oscillate the radar frequency the RCS may vary quite a bit. Wouldn't a radar that had that ability be a good anti-stealth radar? Please tell me I am getting carried away...
