Available options are Eurofighter, F-15, F-18 and F-35.
Two F-35 were sent to Germany. TwInvis with passive electromagnetic beams detects F-35 at 150km.

I wouldn't buy too much into that story. Aircrafts flying to air shows have their transponders on, and radar reflectors attached to fuselages.

Yes they detected F-35 from airshow, but German source is just mentioning the testing, no airshow.
Have read the English one now.

Which airshow? who mentioned any airshow there?
They detected them leaving an air show, they set up in some farm field. But yes they can be detected, they can even be seen with the naked eye, but the problem is getting a weapons grade radar lock, big difference.

it's an old story that pops up every now and again
I only read the German story. May be the English one, I posted is incorrect source, haven't read it.
German is about testing of aircrafts for Luftwaffe.
Story is from end of 2018.

yea, even if they find a way, or powerful enough computer to get a weapons lock in this manner, it's just going to mean that any powerful transmitters are going to be cruise missile targets. Without powerful transmissions from some source, there is no detection in this manner.
