For the purposes of understanding the operational environment of the fast jet pilot, it is useful to consider air combat as consisting of three major phases: detection, engagement and disengagement. Detection is of vital importance. This underscores the modern air combat principle of 舖first look, first shot, first kill舗. This principle has driven the development of increasingly powerful and capable airborne radar systems and air-to-air missiles. This has given the modern fighter pilot the ability to identify and destroy airborne targets beyond visual range.
Knowing when and how to do this at the exact correct time is indeed a fine art. Disengaging from a fight at the wrong time may make the aircraft an easier target for the opponent. Sometimes, of course, disengaging may be the only viable option, particularly in a low-fuel situation or during a non-combat aircraft emergency. Fighter Missions It is useful now to consider the operational employment of fast jet aircraft in the fighter role. The mission may be one of achieving and maintaining air superiority and air dominance, or the specific interception and interdiction of another aircraft (possibly with assistance from ground-based radar).
In general, when operationally deployed in wartime, the main role for a fighter aircraft is to establish air superiority over a battlefield. Fighter Aircraft Generations There is no universally agreed definition of what constitutes a fighter generation. Indeed, there has been much discussion on this topic. In general terms, the following guidance is provided to help readers understand the evolution of the fast jet, especially given that the term 舖fifth-generation fighter舗 is regularly used in the media these days.
