Dear Hpasp,thanks for the tip, I've lost some .djvu files due to PC failure, only .jpg survived (exported eatlier)...
Here some for you!
and here also:Бое...amp;#1042;.djvu
- page 95, 250 to 253 also... In fact, the whole document is PRICELESS.... piston are you sure about that?? Without seeing what the text says, (I don't have time to sit and figure out Cyrillic script and then work the dictionary - printed I can 'read' but I've always struggled with hand-writing)... the image shows the 'first target' acquired too late, with three possible missile paths - the "last" fired breaks up due to over-g to track (or is 'lost' from guidance and self-destructs - the other two have insufficient energy to both follow the changing lead as the target passes overhead, and to reach altitude fast enough and miss.
The second flight path seems to be a direct hit and kill ~ while this might be what they'd like to have happened on the 16th I remain less than entirely convinced... more likely is this is a demonstration that the missile would fly directly to the impact point (ie is capable) if fired from further out.
Of course, I'll take it all back if that isn't what is written, or there really was a seriously damaged/killed Habu on the second flight.
But to me it smacks of AAR and lessons learnt, rather than two AAR.
The document said only that they maded 2 firings (no specification how many missiles they used) described like "unefective" due to "unsuficient level of crew training" and "bad timing in firing against the target". I am a bit confused too, but seems it's a lesson learned. The SR-71 symbol which is on 70+ km from the SNR is taged as "Neccesary distance to target in the moment of firing"; the other SR-71 symbol is tagged as "Achieved distance to target in the moment of firing"....
Anyway, I believe they shoot too late....
