Air combat is a complex mix of art, science and engineering. Aircraft performance, weapons performance, networked sensors and pilot skill all contribute to the final Loss Exchange Ratio (LER). The only simplification is that aircraft approach, engage in combat and the survivors depart. This activity can be examined in a ‘kill-chain’ with the following stages: ‘Detect-Identify-Engage-Disengage-Destroy’ (DIED2).
Some possible new sentences:
“After each date, Norbert rushed to his computer to calculate his Loss Exchange Ratio (LER).”
“Life is one long kill-chain, Norbert thought.”
“Polyamorous Norbert approached love like a heat-seeking missile. For each new woman, his only thought was: Detect-Identify-Engage-Disengage-Destroy.”
