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.
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.
