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 concludes the overview of the P-825 in use 19 years ago, featuring the second and last part of the discussion about the Fleet Conversion Procedures and the Advanced Intercepts, with the first introduction to the intercept of a non-cooperative (id est jinking) bogey.
Another series of concepts from the second half of the P-825/02 are discussed, including the so-called “Unknown Procedures”, Fleet Conversions and the Advanced Intercepts.
Due to the length of the discussion, “Unknown Procedures” and the first part of the Fleet Conversions are covered in this article. The second part of the Fleet Conversions and the Advanced Intercepts are topics of the next chapter of this series (Part X).
The second half of the P-825/02 covers a variety of advanced procedures and techniques. Discussing all of them will be way too long, so this article and the next are a brief overview of a limited set of those concepts. In particular, this article covers the Intercept Progression and the Lead Collision.
The Intercept following the documentation from the early 2000s is somewhat similar to the Modern doctrine previously discussed, although there are substantial differences in the techniques used to close the distance, the DT and the CT.
The somewhat simpler approach makes techniques more suitable to aircraft with older avionics such as the F-14.
