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.
This is the last series of articles about Air to Air employment, at least for the moment. It has been a long journey, started a year and a half ago with the deep-dive into the F-14 avionics then the Timeline, with a glance at the transition into WVR
“The challenge is performing an intercept using only a basic understanding of the avionics and without the complexity of the Intercept Geometry.”
