As the vast majority of the playerbase celebrates the 2022 as the year of the Apache, we, the few, look forward to that tiny bit of spoiler left by Eagle Dynamics in their traditional end-of-year video, eagerly awaiting to jump in the rear seat of one of the most iconic aircraft ever built.
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.
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.
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.
I have been seeking a new virtual wing or squadron since early 2020, as my availability drastically changed back then.
If your play in a compatible group and looking for a RIO, give me a shout!
The second Public Draft of VBSvI – F-14 Radar Intercept Officer is ready for you to check!
There is still a lot to do, in terms of content and corrections, but I am slowly getting there. All feedback helps!
