Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
|Situation:||An attacker is closing fast from behind.|
|Maneuver:||• Level out your wings (1).|
|• Pull up hard and extend your speedbrake (2).|
|• As soon as the attacker appears on your screen (overshoots), retract the speedbrake and be prepared to turn hard to follow, or take a missile shot and disengage.|
|Note:||Using this maneuver with less than 400 knots of airspeed won't leave you with much speed for maneuvering. Use this with caution when flying at low speed.|
Force the other aircraft to overshoot by extending your speedbrake.
