Air Combat Simulator Tactics and Maneuvers
by Richard G. Sheffield

Low Yo-Yo

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.
