Fighter tactics exist to defeat other aircraft. The airplane itself may be considered a
weapons platform designed to bring the weapons system into position for firing.
Meeting these weapons-firing requirements must, therefore, be the goal of all fighter
tactics and maneuvering.
You have just seen glimpses of the air war in Vietnam and Desert Storm. Naval fighters
ended the Vietnam war with a 12.5:1 kill ratio. Before you make your first ACM flight,
you must understand that your success as a fighter pilot depends on your commitment
to be the victor not the victim.
