Part II of the Jamming study discusses some of the new features introduced recently, and how jamming effects impact the Tomcat.
(Almost) all the RIO basics in 2h40′!
Patch 2.8 has been release a few hours ago, and applies jamming effects to the F-14 Tomcat.
Tomorrow evening I will host an impromptu discussion, covering SA, avionics, basic geometry. You are welcome to join!
Jamming effects are making their way to the F-14 Tomcat. Anticipating the release, we start this brief journey by glancing at the fundamentals principles of jamming, and recalling accounts and experiences involving electronic warfare and the Tomcat.
Part III shows additional tests, such as the performance at different ranges, different geometry, and a comparison with the AIM-54 Phoenix.
Part II of the AIM-7 study focuses on the loft, a familiar technique that allows the AIM-7 to invest energy into altitude as the rocket motor burns, and then cash in by converting altitude to speed and range.
