    "TODO: Client side visualisation of radar jamming range."

    Does that make it so when we have certain radar vision and units with Vanguard enter into radar range, we can see "black spot" (of size 70) moving inside radar vision?

    Yes. Here's MarechalGryzzly testing vs available energy levels https://www.twitch.tv/videos/718962162

    But if everything stays inside of the jamming circle, there is no "black spot" to see. :)

    I have had the AI use this against me to good effect.

    No, I believe this note is in reference to displaying it as a range circle for the owner, same as weapons and radar.

    Pressing the Control key shows the range of both radar and radar jammer.

    As a player who is getting radar jammed, I would like to see the range of spot I can't actually see. Basically I don't see units near vanguard but I can see a black spot moving inside my radar vision. At this point, I think it is pretty OP that you can move without any vision even if the radar is online.
