Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
Split-S or Descending Half-Loop
|Minimum Altitude||10,000 feet (fully loaded on afterburners)|
|3,000 feet (no bomb load and 55% power)|
- You're flying straight and level (1).
- Apply full left or right stick (2).
- Stop the aircraft's rotation once you reach an inverted position and are flying straight and level upside down (3).
- Pull back on the stick and hold until the horizon comes up. Stop when the horizon is level (4).
The Split-S maneuver is one you can use to quickly lose altitude while making a 180° turn.
