When it came to a run off with a May, he got to 300 kts and we were quite comfortable with plenty of power in hand.

PA, thank you, I admit that knowledge of aircraft noise transmission was pretty poor in the 70s. We would try and avoid overflying the target but when I asked how long the towed array was the answer was a lemon. The P3 I mentioned was a true incident and the oncoming crew, also P3 were royally pissed off.
