Salamis defintely have a problem reading and typing. What are you talking about? Give up on what? you make fake statements and pollute the forum by propagating nonsense. Still, where are those S-300 platforms against which, accroding to your claims the F-4Gs were engaged against in the late 70s, come on. You stick an F4-G picture as a response? Is that all you have?
I gave you two F4g's to help you
identify the test ranges I spoke of. I have already given two of the ranges, in a previous post. Here they are...
1. Crow Valley Range, Clark AB, Phillipines (Tail Marking PN)
2. Tonopah Test Range, (Area 52) Nellis AFB, Nevada, US (Tail Marking WA)
3. Special Operations Center, Eglin AFB, Florida, US
As I stated in previous posts the first 2 ranges were established in the mid 70's to provide real life training to USAF fighter pilots. Both of these ranges included squadron of "Agressor" aircraft who flew against US aircraft using Soviet Style tactics and equipment of the period. They included simulated SAM sites. No, they did not actually launch Soviet S-300 missiles at friendly aircraft, just as the F5e's did not actually launch Air to Air during dogfights. Results of each engagement were scored based on numerous sensory data located throughout the range and carried aboard participating aircraft. Un-guided missiles (GTR-18) were sometimes used to simulate SAM launch's but they were harmless.
They key inovation (for the Soviets at the time) was the phased array radar which guided the S-300 missile. This technology was installed in the test ranges above on or before 1979. The point of the post was that USAF pilots were flying against this technology for 30 years.
The S-300 has ben modified much in the last 30 years and current versions are far superior to the original system. They can switch frequencies quickly to prevent jamming ( but not even close to the US MIM - 104) The Tonopah test range is still in operation, The Crow valley range was largely consumed by the erruption of Mt Pinatubo in the 90's and subsequently moved to Alaska. Eglin continues to be home of much of USAF Special Ops training,
