Not all aircrafts that I see on Flightradar24 are visible

Hello all!
How does this work?
I can see LAGR140 with the icao24 of adff0c on Opensky.
But I can't see for example LAGR232 with the icao24 of ae0424.

Both have the source MLAT on Flightradar24 and are in flight.
Is this because of the difference in the numbers a receivers between Opensky and Flightradar24 or something else?

I'm not trying to complain, just trying to understand how this works.

Greetings,
Ronald

Yes, such military aircraft may not have/use ADS-B (only Mode S) and we don't do multilateration. So, you can see them in the list but not the position.

Thanks for that info.
Will there be support of MLAT? If I see the most tracked flights on Flightradar24 is it mainly the military aircrafts.

We have no current plans for live support, our focus and resources are very different from FR24.

NB: MLAT or not, these tracked aircraft are all aircraft that want to be seen, it's a show of force. Nothing wrong with that, of course.
