Abstract:

Employment Concept. F-4AIM-7E and F-4AIM-9 profiles will be flown in conjunction with one another, as they are viable operational employment concepts against targets representative of the threat based on the following AIM-7. Launches of the AIM-7 are recommended with the radar in full auto-track mode as would be the optimum launch condition used in an operational environment. However, in an ECM environment the shooter would be required to convert to the stern area and accept an AIM-7 launch at less than optimum firing conditions. Depending upon the type of ECM encountered, the AIM-7 may have to be launched in HOJ, AOJ, boresight or manual track. These alternate firing modes tax the aircrew to the utmost and demand a complete knowledge of the fire control system. Firing in a jamming environment also provides an excellent training opportunity for participating aircrews. AIM-9. Launching the AIM-9 in the caged condition is the optimum mode for end-game performance.
