Dogfight and Aerial Combat Tactics




Air to Air Combat

Dog fights!
World War Stories- Our collection of War stories and arguments, and so lets move on to new topic and information that would put us back to the time that our country struggle to survive.  I am talking about the WAR.  Now our focus of our discussion is the Aerial Dogfights! 
Based on many historical books, that aerial combat is not new, in fact it was seen during first World War, according to many theorists at that time, that to win a war requires a great aerial supremacy!  When we say supremacy are we talking about numbers or techniques?
Dog fighting first was experienced during World War 1, that is  after the invention of the airplane, and has since became a component on every major war.  Modern terminology for air-to-air combat is air combat maneuvering (ACM), which refers to tactical situations requiring the use of individual basic fighter maneuvers (BFM) to attack or evade one or more opponents. This differs from aerial warfare, which deals with the strategy involved in planning and executing various missions.

So it before and now! Aerial combat is not about numbers but it all about techniques and powerful maneuvers to go for a kill.  And that is something very hot to talk about.

Air to Air Tactics

In World War 2, pilots, German, Oswald Boelke developed seven basic rules of air combat in some of the most enduring is currently admonitions surprise the enemy and to gain improper advantage Boelke to the offering of a quick flight. Eschewing "jump - eagle patrol," he believed that aircraft should attack in pairs with the same support and cooperation and there is a greater chance to succeed from the enemy.

Then the pilot Jastas training by Dicta Boelke, a set of techniques for air-combat.  Boelke developed both the attack and tactical Dicta policies such as maintaining the advantages before you find a fire, using the Sun to blind the enemy then to dive and go for a kill.  And  Boelke formulated strategies for squadron attack he suggested - between four and six of the aircraft is required for air attacks and will not install one. During the fight, and technical notions Boelke was highly recognized in both lines during World War II. In the tactical level. Basic air combat against the enemy, consisting mostly of decision or not. Possible attack by closing maneuver, shoot and escape if the attack was unsuccessful. More preparation is needed both to reengage or to prevent attacks and survive. Allowance for the increase. Plenty of speed acquisition targets and the accuracy of the tenets of these weapons just as valid today as in 1914, and during the history of 1918. Air combat in the first major battle.

By World War II. Despite the explosive skills used in  air to air combat, air-combat experience in Pacific and in Europe is different from Word War I, according to many  stories and theories by many Ace Pilots in WWII, speed and maneuverability are keys to win the dog-fight,

This is a good theory by ww2aircraft.net sa BombTaxi his advice is Oswald Boelke.

I think as a starting point. Well as 'Dicta Boelcke' developed by these Oswald Boelcke, seems to be the first true professional fighter and the fact that now more than 90 years ago, these are useful. Even when playing other players online;

1.Try security on hand before you attack and go for a kill. If possible, the sun behind you.

2.Always make the first move in attacking.

3.Only fire when you are at close range, when your opponent correctly in your landscape.

4.You should try to keep your eyes focus to the target.

5.In any type of tactic is necessary to attack an opponent from behind.

6.If the opponent is at your range, you do not try to dive around and attack.

7.When your are lock down by your enemies never forget your own escape.

8.Tip for squadrons: in principle, be better to attack in six or four. Avoid second plane. Attack each opponent.

This is another good recommendation.


So we can say that World War II air-combat strategies are simply derived in the first World War.

the spiral dive is a last-ditch attempt to shake off a resolute pursuer. This involves maintaining the highest possible rate of turn in a dive steep enough to retain manoeuvring airpeed. If the attacker follows the spiral the defender should throttle

The counter to a well executed barrel roll attack is for the defender to dive away and increase speed. While doing this he must keep a sharp lookout for a missile attack and be ready to evade it. If he reverses his turn, he will probably set himself

. This can be broken by waiting until both aircraft are pointing away from each other, then rolling inverted and diving away. The dive regains the speed lost in the scissors, and can be followed by a steep climb, preferably into the sun.-courtesy of
