CHAPTER THREE
TACTICAL/AERIAL REFUELING PROCEDURES
300. INTRODUCTION
The objective of this Chapter is to introduce you to Tiltrotor MPTS Tactical/Aerial Refueling
Procedures. These objectives are strictly for Marine Corps Intermediate Tiltrotor MPTS use
only.
301. TACTICAL FORMATIONS
These formations are designed to increase the flight leader's flexibility and should be utilized
when there is a requirement for maximum maneuverability and aircraft separation. They also
promote security by providing overlapping fields of view. From either tactical formation, nine
basic tactical flight formation maneuvers can be used to control the flight. These maneuvers
include tactical (TAC) turns, center turns, in-place turns, split turns, cross turns, break turns, the
dig, the pinch, and cover. They give the flight leader maximum command and control of the
flight while increasing flexibility and space for individual aircraft to maneuver. During tactical
maneuvering, the wingman always has the ultimate responsibility for maintaining adequate
clearance from lead.
Combat Cruise
Combat cruise is a tactical formation designed to provide maximum flexibility to increase the
capability to maneuver and to apply lookout doctrine and terrain masking. Wingmen can fly on
a rearward arc with 500 - 1000 feet displacement from 10 forward of the abeam position on
either side of lead. The optimum position for wingmen is on the 30 bearing in reference to lead.
