Air Combat Tips

Post  BillyKid1234 on Thu Dec 08, 2011 8:23 pm

Here is some tips for you guys who are struggling in the jets. I've been playing jet simulators and studing arieal combat for a long time now and when I got in a jet for the first time in BF3, it was easy for me to own the noobs Smile But I want to share with you guys some tips that may help you in your quest to rule the skies. Smile

1. Wait until you see the whites of his eyes. Fire short bursts of 1 to 2 seconds and only when your sights are definitely 'ON'.
2. Whilst shooting think of nothing else, brace the whole of the body, have both hands on the stick, concentrate on your ring sight.
3. Always keep a sharp lookout. "Keep your finger out!"
4. Height gives You the initiative.
5. Always turn and face the attack.
6. Make your decisions promptly. It is better to act quickly even though your tactics are not the best.
7. Never fly straight and level for more than 30 seconds in the combat area.
8. When diving to attack always leave a proportion of your formation above to act as top guard.
9. INITIATIVE, AGGRESSION, AIR DISCIPLINE, and TEAM WORK are the words that MEAN something in Air Fighting.
10. Go in quickly - Punch hard - Get out!

These tips came from a WW1 pilot named Adolph Gysbert Malan and they helped me ALOT during my PC Sim days. Alot of the same rules apply to BF3. I hope you find them usefull
See you in the skies Gents Smile
