BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERING (BFM) THEORY
CHAPTER NINE
Figure 9-18 Post-Bubble Attack Scenario
As the attacker approaches the defender's bubble (B), the attacker will notice the Track Crossing
Rate (relative movement of the target in his canopy) starts to increase (the defending aircraft will
also notice an increased Track Crossing Rate as he watches the attacker quickly move aft across
his canopy).
At this point, the attacker must make a lag correction towards the defender's control zone, as
required, to remain behind the center of the turn circle (post). This lag maneuver may require
driving straight ahead for 2 - 4 seconds or may require a momentary turn away from the defender
(C).
NOTE
The defending aircraft will also see this and use it as information
as well. The attacking aircraft should see his range to the target
begin to stabilize.
Once behind the post, the attacker will have to correct two remaining problems: Angle-off the
defender's tail and lead. Advanced lead and lag maneuvers (such as low and high yoyos to be
introduced in chapter 10) will solve these geometric problems (D). The attacker will utilize
pursuit curves as required to enter the control zone on the way to the control point. With plane
of motion range and lead solved, the attacker will be in position for a valid guns shot (D).
A valid shot against a non-cooperative target is a fleeting opportunity. It is imperative that the
attacker does not fly through a perfectly good weapon opportunity in a desire to "saddle in".
