Building a Mul

"I dropped the contact to monitor our
range from the closest SA-6 site at Nis.
- Boss, we're in the rings - was my call
so lead called abort left. I lit the burner and sliced left and my range to the
threat said 8 miles. - Geez - I thought,
that's too close. After 130 degrees
through the turn, I looked over my right
shoulder and saw two missiles launched
at us! I yelled - SA-6s in the air over Nis,
defending south!"
This short recollection of a defensive engagement from Operation Allied Force in Serbia 15 years ago clearly
illustrates the limitations of legacy
fighter aircraft. Especially the basic
level of integration of their mission
avionics and the way it is presented to
the pilot or "onboard human decision
maker," which he or she increasingly
became since the introduction of the
fourth-generation of platforms from
the middle of the 1970s.
The narrator above, an F-16 pilot, describes a situation during a suppression
of enemy air defenses (SEAD) mission,
in which the enemy has launched a low
and slow flying aircraft (most likely a
helicopter) to lure him and his flight
lead into the engagement range ("ring")
of a surface-to-air missile system.

BUILDING A PICTURE IN YOUR MIND
To cope with such a threat, his multirole fighter is more than well equipped.
It has a good radar, it has a good radar
warning receiver, jammer, towed decoy and other expendables, up-to-date
