Intercept Geometry – Part XIII: In-Depth Timeline (continuation: FOX 3/1/2)

The final part of the “core” of this study proposes the continuation of the Timeline discussed in Part XII using the concepts described in the older part of the public documentation. FOX 3/1/2 means a FOX-3 launch, succeeded by a FOX-1, and closed by a stern conversion enabling VID and a FOX-2 shot.

Gunner, HEAT, PC! new Steam page!

Us poor souls looking for a decent tank game and went through World of Tanks, War Thunder GRB/GSB and tried Steel Beasts, probably noticed the wide void between low-effort F2P games* and the simulative level of Steel Beasts. The new Il2 begs to differ but, as the name suggests, it is set in the WW2.
What is left, then?

Intercept Geometry – Part XII: In-Depth Timeline (from “Picture” to “Crank”)

Compared to the Simplified Timeline, this overview poses a much greater emphasis on understanding and manipulating the geometry, maximise PK and improving the Situational Awareness.
Due to the length of the discussion, this Part of the study covers from the initial phases of the Timeline, down to the post-employment. There are various possible next steps after this: for example, launch-and-leave, or press for a FOX-1 employment. Part XIII will discuss one of the options.

A look at Tactical Pascale’s Simple Intercept Video

This article is part of the postmortem of the Intercept Geometry study in “Virtual Backseaters Volume I”.
I originally used another video, instead of Tactical Pascale’s. However, his video is clear, straightforward, and easy to understand. It greatly shows the application of a simple intercept to DCS, and it helps to discussion about the purpose of studying the (declassified) details of the Intercept Geometry.

Tomcat-Dedicated Podcast: The F-14 Tomcast

Shoutout to this terribly underrated podcast.
The F-14 Tomcast is wholly dedicated to our beloved Grumman F-14 Tomcat (what else could it be with that name, innit? 🙂 ). Hosts are the former F-14 pilot Craig “Crunch” Snyder and the former RIO Dave “Bio” Baranek, along a guest in every episode.
