    Advantage of "first look first shot " in 1980s era combat

    Hello

    Just wanted to see how important was the first look first shoot advantage in 1980s era combat ? Was air combat more likely to occur at ranges of 70km which was the max range of AIM-7M ?

    Did the Newer soviet fighters of 80s like early variants of Su-27 and Mig-29 9.12 / 9.12A carried any ECM to jam incoming AIM-7?

    Or did the soviets employ specific jammers/jamming aircraft to defeat SARH missiles ?
