Reconnaissance is looking to see what might be out there, while the Search part of SAR is more likely to be looking for something specific. That is a bit different. I guess it really depends on the definition of Reconnaissance- it terms of the intent of this GB, does “recon” require the unspoken qualifier of “ for the enemy”? What about “Patrol”? That is sort of a gray area in between Recon(looking for the enemy) and Search ( looking for a survivor or specific object.) Is a PBY on an ASW patrol considered “recon”? Is a modern Carrier’s E2-C Hawkeye with its long range radar patrolling overhead doing recon? Is a C-130 on International Ice Patrol (look for and report any icebergs threatening the shipping lanes) a recon flight? Maybe the intent here is for “Military” recon/patrol/search. Maybe I’m just over-thinking this…… Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
