The declassified and freely accessible documents cover only co-speed intercepts. This is a short study that aims to quantify the impact of the difference between VF14 and VTGT on the Collision Course.
Last article dedicated to the Modern Intercept Geometry, based on the CNATRA P-825, rev. 2017. I recorded three short demo videos, each using a different gameplan and scenario.
The Gameplans discussed in Part IV guide the fighter from its initial position to the 40k LS goal. This article is about what happens in the last 10nm.
The Intercept Geometry Part IV introduces the Gameplans used to manipulate the Lateral Separation to allow the F-14 to complete the intercept using manoeuvres such as the Horizontal Stern Conversion Turn.
Part II of this study refreshed some basic concepts related to the Intercept Geometry. Out of many, the Lateral Separation is probably the most important variable at this stage of our learning process.
This article is a (hopefully not too boring) list of definitions, some of which have been already discussed in the past. A thorough understanding of definitions, acronyms and relations is unfortunately a necessary evil.
