Charts were found in Carrier Task Force Anti-Air Warfare in the 1970 Era which is quite interesting reading.

Since it says time lines correspond to end points in trajectories and that maximum ranges are not implied, does that mean that the LR Typhon isn't capable of operating at 180,000 feet or that it is, but isn't necessarily capable of enough control for interception at that altitude, or something else entirely?

3T and Sparrow

Also found in the document:
Advanced Terrier performance envelope. I believe this is RIM-2F.
Terrier HT-3 performance envelope and time of flight curves for HT-3 and BT-3.
Advanced Terrier time of flight curves and improved Tartar performance envelope.
Improved Tartar time of flight curves and Talos performance envelope (which looks to also include Super Talos).
And lastly, how to calculate the launch envelope for Sparrow III.

The info revealed here is fantastic and exclusive,as there is really few saying about actual 3T missiles' performances.
However the link on the document seems no longer available,so if you don't mind reposting?(just asking)


Also in a 1990s Proceedings article(link above) someone revealed serious defuncts,if not failures in the rush-to-service 3T missile systems before get-well program,are there any more articles at the time saying about the same problems?
