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.
The AIM-7 Sparrow is often overshadowed by the AIM-54 Phoenix and the AIM-120 AMRAAM, to the extent that many in DCS prefer to skip it entirely.
The Sparrow is, in DCS, a surprisingly capable missile, if used correctly. This study aims to improve the understanding of the performance, peculiarities, and properties of this missile, to achieve better results with it.
Now and then I recommend podcasts, videos, books, and other media.
Here are a couple of YouTube channels I have been following for quite a long time and are undoubtedly worth watching.
About a month ago, I bought a graphic tablet for gaming-unrelated purposes. I wondered if I could use it in DCS to replace the plethora of paper I waste every time, perhaps on a second PC. It turns out there is an open-source app that solves this issue, and provides much more than I expected: OpenKneeboard.
