Hi all!
Now guys I have a very serious request.
Let's share our knowledge!

Whoever thinks is a good FB pilot please write your instructions on how to fly better. Share these small tips that could make us all better.
Enlighten us!

Of course you don't have to tell us about all planes. For those you know better is better to speak. Some people may only know how to fly a BF109-K4 so it's ok to know about it only.

Before you reply please give it a thought and maybe in the end we can make a good conclusion out of it.

Awaiting!

- Situational Awareness
Pan the skies all the time. I rarely look forward in a dogfight except when aiming for the killshot.

- Aggressivness
Take the initiative. Push push push.

- Experience
Fly against humans alot. Join VOW and go get some hours in.

- Know your plane
Fly her to her limits. What is the minimumspeed for a loop for example.

BEWARE! RBJ will be in here as soon as he wakes up, and we all know that he is the one and only true online ace, and that only his knowledge is of any value.

Check six constantly. Roll over, pull back, yaw left and right, doesnt matter - as long as you can see your six every now and then.

Stay alert! This is important! It bears repeating constantly. Even if you're busy chasing someone down, be sure to unlock and look around for a second or two.

Don't overshoot! Overshoot and you're in the enemy's guns long enough to take some serious hits. If you overshoot, you have two choices: climb or dive.

Make every shot count. Do not waste anything - if you can't make the shot, don't take it. Wait until your target fills the gunsight, then open up with quick bursts. If you want a surprise kill, get as close as possible and jam the trigger.

Shoot for the wings - shoot into the fuse and you're wasting time.

No sustained turn fighting - it will get you in trouble, regardless of your current aircraft's turn rate. Go around once, afterwards chances are the enemy is showing up in force.

You can never have too much altitude.

You can never have too much fuel.

You can never have too many wingmen.

You can always be a better wingman.

Teamwork is life.

Well, I could write a book in this thread

Just a few key thoughts:

Make use of copious ammounts of elevator trim to turn better ... you MUST be able to turn as hard as possible to be an ace

Use a seperate joystick and throttle device ... you must do this for FB (not required in IL2)

In dogfights, try to stay near the clouds just in case you need to get away.

Know the limitations of each aircraft and devise your strategy from that.

Vengeanze hit the nail on da head when he said:
- Situational Awareness
- Pan the skies all the time. I rarely look forward in
- a dogfight except when aiming for the killshot.
-

Ditto!

-- Aggressivness
- Take the initiative. Push push push.
-

But take the time to stay on top of situational awareness!

-- Experience
- Fly against humans alot. Join VOW and go get some
- hours in.

Or just fly on good dogfight servers. But yes human players are a must as AI can only train gunnery and deflection but not real tactics unless pulling back on the stick all day is yer thing. Online is where the real fun lies.

-
-- Know your plane
- Fly her to her limits. What is the minimumspeed for
- a loop for example.

I wont loop at anything below 280kph in a P39. As Ven touched on. its the little details that will help you stay on top/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
