A theoretical model that covers both spontaneous and stimulated Cherenkov emission from an extended electron bunch has been developed. The initiation is described of the generation of superradiant pulses [1-3] by emission from the leading edge of the electron bunch. In combination with the proven experimentally picosecond stability of explosive emission from a cold cathode [4], it provides the possibility for strong correlation of phase of the SR pulses with respect to the leading edge of the electron pulse [5].
