man i have read sooo many books included about aircraft and aerodesign that right now i dont remember where i read the a12 incident, but you can ask
for another guy, anyway i have an link, its american propagandist, but it say an incident with an sa2 that expolted only an mile behind the sr71, as
you know the blackbird flights are very well studied and organizated, so an old sam that reach an merely mile describes that the plane is overated;
"Landing was uneventful at Kadena. The Terrain tracking camera recorded the SA-2's launches and later evaluation revealed the nearest missile
exploded about one mile behind and away from #976. "
man the missile speed is the true speed. again if you launch that form an X=Vo>0, the total speed is T=X+missile speed, look, an sea sparrow reach M4
from the ground.
you cant sustain max speed specialy height (and specialy from such heigh and speed and with that design!!!!!) with maneuvres, hell none plane can do
that, .......ahhh yes only the blackbird
...nice propaganda, the sr71 have the max speed record, but in that time i think that the mig25 had the
max climb record, is obvius that the 25 can climb better, so if the blackbird lose energy in a maneuvre the thinks go better for the 25.
please dont start with that "sr71 over ussr", because it didnt happened.
your friends of your friends of your friends etc.... could tell you anything in cold war times (or even in this times),but please start to reading an
