Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
Barrel Roll Attack
|Situation:||You're approaching an opponent from behind. The other aircraft turns hard and your speed advantage may cause an overshoot.|
|Maneuver:||•The enemy aircraft breaks hard to the right. You should pull up hard (1).|
|•Immediately begin a roll to the left, away from your opponent (2).|
|•Finish the maneuver by sliding back in behind the enemy plane with a hard right turn (3).|
Instead of overshooting, pull up and roll away from your opponent. Slide back into firing position with another turn—this time toward the target.
