CHAPTER EIGHT
DIVISION AIR-TO-GROUND TACTICS AND PROCEDURES
800. INTRODUCTION
Military aircraft are designed to destroy an enemy's potential to wage war. This mission is
primarily accomplished by delivering various types of ordnance upon enemy personnel,
equipment, and/or installations. Accurate delivery of ordnance on surface targets is one of the
primary missions of military aviation and is accomplished with a wide variety of special and
conventional weapons. Delivery techniques vary as widely as the weapons themselves, and vary
from conventional dives of all angles to computer-integrated loft maneuvers. This phase of
training will only touch on a few of them.
The primary objective of the division weapons training in VT-86 is to develop your basic
understanding of the weapons pattern, to introduce you to the concepts of weapon delivery, and
the coordination required to get to and from a target area.
801. DIVISION FLIGHT PREPARATION
Brief
The following items should be completed prior to the WEPS 3 brief:
1.
File DD 175 or put appropriate stereo route on file.
2.  Set up briefing board with Z diagrams (in MSL) and safety data (all altitudes except dive
recovery will be MSL).
3.
Prepare a kneeboard card for the instructor with Z diagrams in MSL.
4.
Have a briefing guide and T-2 models in briefing room.
5.
Have a tactical callsign for the flight (generally lead IP's callsign).
"Z" Diagrams
As introduced previously during section WEPS, "Z" diagrams, are useful presentations of pattern
and weaponeering information and will be included on briefing boards and kneeboard cards.
During the division weapons pattern, a 10-degree and 20-degree dive pattern will be employed.
The generic 10 weapons pattern altitudes are depicted in the "Z" diagram below (Figure 8-1).
Similar to the earlier Weapons flights, the "Z" diagram altitudes will be adjusted to reflect MSL
target elevation.
To minimize in-flight calculations, all kneeboard card "Z" diagrams will again be presented in
MSL. To review the definitions and components of a "Z" diagram see Chapter 6.
