Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield

The Rollaway

Situation:The situation is the same as for the High Yo-Yo maneuver. This is a modified High Yo-Yo and will often yield better results, especially if you have a considerable speed advantage.
Maneuver:• Pull up the aircraft's nose to gain altitude (1).
• Instead of turning in the same direction as your opponent, perform a Split-S in the opposite direction (2).
• Dive back toward your opponent (3).
• Level out and turn with the enemy. You should be in good firing position (4).

Roll away from your opponent; then drop in behind him for a gun or missile shot.
