I don't recall saying that (but might have), but it'd be within a particular context given the role intended for CVS in WW3 unless I rushed the post somewhat.
The only correlation between Bears and SKW I can find in my history was in fact this nonsense.
Wandering Bears may come with gunsBut without baggers...Oh dear! Crumbs!(with apologies to Christopher Isherwood)
Which was not an attempt to offer an accurate reflection of Cold War TTPs or the thinking behind them...
I am sure that you posted that some had concluded that AEW would have been greatly beneficial for the NATO role of the CVS.
operating in blue water with open arcs, RN ships were quite capable of beating off attacks by elderly Skyhawks dropping dumb bombs.
AEW would not have fixed the issue that ships operating near land were being significantly handicapped by clutter.
What WAS an issue was the realisation that other than the 2x22’s, the 5x42’s and the 1x82, everything else was just targets and missile magnets - see their very rapid demise after the War. And that’s an issue the old farts who rage ‘in 1982, the RN sent 100 ships to the Falkland’ rather miss.
See also the sudden re-interest in the fitting of rapid firing AA guns and dusting off VL Seawolf.
The point of AEW would be to detect the Skyhawks etc before they reached the islands and used the contours to hide in. I do wonder how the old 965 radar would have performed in open ocean. The Sheffield BOI report specifically mentioned the reflected ground wave causing the reflections from the aircraft/missile to be swamped.
