SA-6 with different missile launch modes?


Recommended Posts

Just watched this:

 

The first missile flew a high curve and then to the target, the second one more a coming-from-the-low flight path. Does the SA-6 has the ability, to use different flight paths to intercept targets?

IIRC in Serbia, they would use the RADAR for a very short period so they know bearing, range, altitude and speed; allowing them to predict where the target would be, they would then fire blind and then illuminate the target in the last moments, meaning if a pilot didn't have eyes on, they wouldn't have a lot of time to react at all.

 

But yes, SAMs typically have different modes to suite the situation, even the SA-2 has several modes. Not sure what the SA-6 does as it's SARH instead of ACLOS.
