Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield
|Situation:||You're in a hard-turning, low-speed fight. You're too close for short-range missiles but you can't out-turn the enemy to line up for a gun shot.|
|Maneuver:||• Let your upper wing come over and begin an inverted dive (1).|
|• Roll out in the opposite direction and pull the nose up (2).|
|• Repeat the process until you pull in behind the enemy and can line up a gun shot (3).|
|Note:||This maneuver should not be performed at low altitude.|
Drop down inside the other aircraft's turn; then pull in behind for a possible shot.
