Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
High-G Barrel Roll
|Situation:||An enemy aircraft is close behind, closing for a gun attack.|
|Maneuver:||• Break hard into the attack (1).|
|• Perform a barrel roll in the opposite direction. This should bleed off some speed and make the attacker overshoot (2).|
|• Roll in behind the target for a gun or short-range missile shot (3).|
Do a barrel roll away from the enemy; then roll back behind him for a tailpipe shot.
