AbstractIn this note calculations are made of the probability of positioning interceptors of different performance so that successful missile firings can be made against bomber of sub¬sonic and supersonic performance. It is concluded that effective¬ ness is greatly decreased if the interceptor suffers a speed dis¬ advantage relative to the bomber, but that it is not greatly 1ncreased by a speed advantage, that a subsonic interceptor can be as effective as a M ach number two interceptor against a Type 3'1 bomber, and that the effectiveness of a supersonic interceptor is insensitive to differences in performance estimates.
