Regarding the last paragraph, TCAS II will issue an RA against any altitude reporting transponder equipped aircraft, not just Mode S equipment. Coordinated RA manuevers (e.g. one system posts a climb RA, the other a descent RA) are only possible with both encounter aircraft equipped with TCAS II. My most recent RA experience was against a VFR light twin.
