Flashcards in Tac Deck (27):
1

Objective of tac form?

Increased maneuverability and optimize weapons and radar employment & visual lookout

2

Main reference for wingman?

The wingman's primary reference for heading and airspeed is lead.

3

Element LAB (Tac) Position

- 2000-3000 lateral separation, LAB to 10 deg aft, vertical stack of up to 500 feet

4

Lateral references for tac?

2000 - ejection seats and helmets visible. 2500 - ejection seats discernable, but individual pilots not. 3000 - canopy blends with fuselage, but prop blade visible

5

Which turns are not signaled visually?

All tac turns except a cross turn, shackle, or hook turn into wingman are signaled visually

6

The Contract Turn

200 KIAS, MAX power, G to hold airspeed (2-3), and level turns

7

Turns Away from Wingman

Large wing flash from lead (approx 90 deg) away from wingman

8

Turns Into the Wingman

Lead just goes

9

How large can a check turn be?

Up to 30 deg

10

When does delay a/c start 90 turn?

increase in LOS (this occurs approx when lead is approaching nose on)

11

How do you correct for an out-of-position 45/90 turn?

"Tight or behind, come early"

12

How do hook turns into work?

- Must be called over radio
- Lead: During first half, lead is visual. Match fuselage through 90 deg turn. Blind 1/2 through
- Wingman: After passing through 90, begin looking out the top of the canopy for lead while continuing turn. Blind first half.

13

How do hook turns away work?

- Signaled visually with a wing flash or called over radio
- If initiated w/ wing flash, lead will begin turning when wingman begins turn
○ Lead's immediate turn indicates hook turn

14

When do you cross over on a cross turn?

A/c cross after 60-90 deg turn

15

Parameters for a Tac GX?

3000 LAB

16

Parameters for Tac Straight Ahead Rejoin?

Standard platform is 200 KIAS, 45 deg bank, level

17

Initial move in Tac Straight Ahead Rejoin?

- Make a bid towards lead's 6
○ Forward LOS and get a slightly low stack
○ May need to make 2 bids
Aim point an imaginary close trail

18

How much overtake on Tac Straight Ahead Rejoin?

10-20 knots

19

When do you go MAX power on Tac Turning Rejoin?

Vertical stack above and into and away

20

Procedure for Tac Turning Rejoin into?

○ MAX and pull to high 6
○ Once forward LOS observed, reverse turn to reacquire lead, low on the inside of the turn
○ No back stick pressure during the turn reversal in order to continue a flight path toward lead's turn circle and assess LOS
○ Descend into normal rejoin

21

FM Starting parameters?

Start: 11k - 12k, 200 KIAS, 3000 LAB for 1/2 and 3000-4000 for 3/4, level
Aim for pure pursuit and 40 AA

22

Objectives for FM?

○ Admin
○ Air-to-air training rules
○ Solving geometric problems
○ Training a/c: controlling briefed parameters
○ Maneuvering a/c: turn circles
○ Stabilizing in ET cone from outside
Resolving high closure/aspect in FM 3 & 4

23

Where is the floor in FM?

500'

24

Procedure for starting FM?

Next, lead turns away: "Ripper check left/right" 45 deg
Wing goes pure pursuit. Lead then reverses turn & maintains having wing w/ 4 AA
Wing can call "Ripper ease off" or "Ripper tighten up"
Once within 1,500 feet, call fight's on

25

Initial moves for FM?

- Drive to the turn circle
- Ease off pull for pure, allowing training a/c to drift toward canopy bow (lag)
When LOS starts increasing, you've entered the turn circle

26

Parameters for training a/c in FM Level 1?

Level to slightly decreasing (10)

1-2

180-220

70-85

27

Parameters for training a/c in FM Level 2?

Slight climb/descent (120 bank 30 pitch)

2-4

150-250

85-MAX
