First post here, but I figured it’s a good place to start! Here’s a personal analysis of a dogfight I had in multiplayer the other day versus a very capable opponent in an F-5E. I try and illustrate the importance of energy management and patience in a fight where I started on the defensive, but managed to score a victory in the end (with a little help from the other guy).
Let me know what you think and I’m excited to be a part of the community!
Nice video! Thanks for sharing @Sport!
Thanks for the video! I usually fly helicopters or air to ground, as I am so bad with SA and awareness of AOA.
This video helps to understand at least one of the things I should be doing when I get back to flying air to air in the Mirage:
Low AOA is where you want to be
Unless in an emergency
Patience is the key
Good example of sustained turn ( @Sport ) vs instantaneus turn ( Alpha ).
I agree, patience not to pull harder on the stick and wait till the beter turn rate ( in sustained turn ) shows is usualy the key. Especialy patience in misile environment where one dont need to go realy close and into lead turn before shooting.
Enjoyed the video. Especially when you popped up the Tacview and explained what was going to happen next.
