Tactics and Techniques of Electronic Warfare: Electronic Countermeasures in the Air War Against North Vietnam: 1965-1973 by Bernard C. Nalty
Representative questions that can be answered with this resource:
- How did the United States try and defend against Surface to Air Missile (SAM) sites?
- How did the North Vietnamese and their allies react to US countermeasures?
- What was Project Vampryus?
- What was a QRC-128?
This 208 page work tells of the efforts by the United States and by North Vietnam to jam each other’s air fighting equipment. Considerable detail on tactics is available. Limitations of the materials, owing to intelligence concerns, are clearly noted.
The work opens with a list of maps and illustrations. Then comes a set of mostly chronological chapters that speak about technologies used and the successes and failures that came with it. Some accounts of lost aircraft are included. It concludes with a glossary of terms and an “abstract” which appears to document what sources were used in preparing this volume.
This book will help equip any USAF pilot characters in stories of this era and may help give them opinions on specific kinds of jamming equipment.
