Abstract : The objective of this report is to try to point out that the mission must change to meet the threat--a threat which is no longer just one aircraft but a weapon system. To be effective, a pilot must take an exhaustive view of such a system, an in this way counter the threat. He will be able: 1) To better understand the possibilities and limits of the system; 2) To realize that he is both a part and the head of the system; 3) To comprehend how the different components of the system are interrelated; 4) To find when and how to emphasize realistic and safe training; and 5)To counter the threat that he now knows as well as the weapon system he belongs to because they are both made the same way.
