Besides what may happen when you bounce a check (vendors take a dim view of this practice) what does bounced refer to in the sim, being attacked?

Never heard the term bounced before in a flight sim.

I think it is when youīre being attacked off guard,by surprice.

If someone flys passed your really fast and it causes your aircraft to turn into rubber. Then you are bounced because rubber is bouncy. right?

it doesnt have to be unaware

you bounce on the enemy like a yoyo using your superior energy

bassically when you bounce up your foe cant follow you for having less E

i find this tactic quite mean cause your foe hardly have chances

Being bounced does not mean in a strictly BNZ form of fighting. Bounced is simply caught by suprise be it by low 6 or high 6 fast or slow attack, being bounced is being caught by suprise, simple as that.

Yep.

How have you never hear the word "bounced"? Read some ww2 books.

Coming from non English background, I was introduced to word "bounce" thru reading WW2 airwar stories.
Later on I discovered another meaning of the word (regarding females) but that is not for this forumhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.
All in all... nice word!

That's "energy fighting." But don't confuse that with the guys who have to extend *wayyyyy* far away before they come back for another pass; they don't have a clue what they're doing.

A good energy fighter does not extend more than 1000m-1400m away from his prey. He keeps his target under constant pressure in order not to let him recover his speed and SA. Done correctly, it shouldn't take more than a couple feints and then the quick killing shot.

I call it Excellent Combat Tactics!

That's boom n zoom old boy.

You could bounce someone in any a/c; I could attack a Fw190 out of the sun in a Gladiator - if my victim is unaware he was being stalked and attacked then then that first attack is the bounce. After that, if he's survived my attack, and you then play boom n zoom with him, well that's just called B-n-Zing.

When you shoot down an enemy plane, pat yourself on the back, then look up and see two p.o.'d enemy planes above you pointed straight at your head.
