Overview

This fascinating guide by the Navy covers training for intercepts by fighter plane pilots. The primary purpose of fighter aircraft is to obtain and sustain air superiority over contested airspace. To successfully accomplish this, the fighter aircrew must execute an intercept in a manner designed to: Attain a position in space between the attacking aircraft and the defended force (positional advantage). Control the intercept geometry to achieve an optimal weapon's Launch Acceptability Region (LAR) and manage the enemy's Weapons Employment Zone (WEZ). This is done to maximize the probability of kill (Pk), while simultaneously preventing the enemy from achieving weapons release. Arrive at the merge with a tally of all bandits and an advantage in position and/or energy. Then the fighter must use basic fighter maneuvers (BFM) to deter or destroy the enemy.
