BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERS (BFM)
CHAPTER TEN
Vs. Bogey Nose Level - Neither aircraft is doing well here. The bogey, whether one-circle or
two, is giving you the opportunity to redefine the fight to something more beneficial. The fighter
should recognize the flow and use its nose to get better performance out of your jet: One-circle-
go nose high, two-circle-go nose low.
Vs. Bogey Nose Up - If we are one-circle, we are arcing, and our turn radius is too large. In this
scenario, the fighter will find itself on the defensive quickly. The only saving grace is the
follow-on merge, which may give you the possibility to early turn the bandit if they bury their
nose. If we are in a two­circle fight, we are probably a little faster than the bandit is, but we are
not max performing our aircraft.
Vs. Bogey Nose Low - If we are in a one-circle fight, we are not doing too poorly, but we can do
better. If we are two-circles, we are giving away vertical turning room to the bandit, and they
will have a chance to fight a better rate fight, we need to start to work downhill and work our rate
numbers.
NOTE
Again, it must be emphasized that rote memorization of the above
merge scenarios is not the intent of this section. These scenarios
are presented to demonstrate the cause-effect relationship between
aircraft performance and fight geometry (flow etc.).
1 V 1 Engagement ICS Communications
Previously we have discussed tactical comms between elements of a section. This section will
cover comms required within a jet during a BFM engagement.
Clear, concise, directive communication is essential for a successful 1 V 1 fight. Our goal in
VT-86 is to have the student apply BFM procedures and knowledge in an "auto fight" during
which he has tactical control of the engagement.
Understanding what to do in a fight is half the battle for a student NFO. The ability to verbalize
timely accurate directive commands to your pilot is the other half of the battle.
The following calls are intended to provide the student with some guidance with regard to some
of the directive COMM that may be useful to employ during a 1 V 1 engagement. By no means
is this list all-inclusive. Additionally, the student realizes these calls are only effective when
applied under the proper circumstances.
