Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers

Low-Speed Disengagement

Situation:You're in a low-speed, hard-turning fight and cannot gain an advantage after several turns. You wish to disengage and reposition.
Maneuver:• Roll inverted (1).
• Pull back on the stick to start a steep dive (2).
• Keep the stick pulled back until you pull out right-side-up but heading in the opposite direction (3).


Roll upside down and put your fighter into a steep dive. You'll end up with a heading 180° from your original.
