I'm fairly sure that the programme selection for the AI23B/C/D on the indicator was 1 for Firestreak and the others for Redtop. I also vaguely remember that one of the functions of the Computer Red was to determine the closing speed and send the appropriate signal to the missile to fuse it for a head on or a tail shot. I was also told that Red Top would delay it's explosion on a tail shot to try to ensure it got the crew as well as the airframe. Never was quite sure if the plumbers were shooting their own line on that one!
