1
Q

What are formation priorities for wingmen?

A

VFR: Visual, Form pos, Radios/NAVAIDs

2
Q

What is contract for tac turns?

A

350 KCAS, MIL pwr and G to maintain airspeed

3
Q

Typically who sets stack in four-ship?

A
  1. 3 will select opposite and 4 will exaggerate 3’s stack
4
Q

What are visual cues for

1) . Outside 6K
2) . 6K
3) . 5K
4) . 4K
5) . Less than 4K

A

1) . Cigar with vert tail, no burner cans
2) . burner cans barely visible
3) . L shape boat tail, canopy details, burner cans
4) . Canopy distinguishable from fuselage, see but not read tail letters
5) . Can read tail letters, detail on ac, beacon visible

5
Q

What is ref for a 1500’ stack?

A

Two beer cans above or below the horizon

6
Q

What is tac LAB?

A

4000-6000’, 2000’ stack max, LAB to 10 deg aft

7
Q

What are the starting parameters and execution for the G-x?

A

420+/-20 KCAS
6000’

For the warmup, 100 deg AOB 8-12 deg NL, top HUD on horizon
For the awareness, 120-135 deg AOB 15-25 deg NL, top mirror on horizon

3-5 deg NH to mx 420 and climb back up for second turn

8
Q

What are the 3 basic axioms of BFM?

A

1) . Lose sight, lose the fight
2) . Maneuver in relation to the bandit
3) . Energy vs nose position

9
Q

In general stay padlocked until when:

A

predictable, easy to see, and not threatening

10
Q

What is the def of turn rate and radius?

A

deg/sec hdg change on a given TC, higher turn rate travels across the circle faster.
Half the size of the TC.

11
Q

What is AOT?

A

AA (when talking about defender). Angle off tail.

12
Q

What is ATA?

A

Antenna train angle or AON.

13
Q

What is the control zone?

A

2500-4500’ slant range, 25-45 deg aspect angle cone

14
Q

aim off distance (AOD)

A

Distance beyond a target predictable for weapons delivery. No wind projected flight path of ac in a dive delivery

15
Q

aim off point (AOP)

A

Point on the ground, long of the target, to which the ac must fly during a weapon’s delivery pass. It is a ground ref to fly to until track is set

16
Q

Dive angle

A

planned angle of dive for weapons delivery

17
Q

Initial pipper placement (IPP)

A

Angle from the tgt to a point in the HUD in mils at track alt

18
Q

Initial AIM off angle (IAA)

A

Angle between the AOP and target at track alt (setting FPM a planned number of deg above the tgt at track alt)

19
Q

initial target placement (ITP)

A

angular distance between the horizon to tgt in degrees (IAA plus planned dive angle=ITP; good wire ref but NOT a track ref

20
Q

Mil

A

1/1000th of a radian; 1’ at a 1000’, 1 deg is 17.45 mils

21
Q

Min release alt (MRA)

A

contingency alt for safe escape, separation, fuze arming criteria

22
Q

percent bomb fall line (%BFL)

A

Alternate HUD track ref–same as IAA

23
Q

release alt

A

actual alt at which weapons delivery occurs

24
Q

track ref

A

position or point in the HUD used to mx or correct ac to planned wire. IAA and BFL are examples

25
Q

track alt

A

alt at which hud ref valid. BFL and IAA relationships only good at track alt
