BASIC FIGHTER MANEUVERS (BFM)
CHAPTER TEN
The defender will attempt to force this maximum overshoot by:
1.
Increasing the opponent's AOT.
2.
Increasing the opponent's Vc.
Decreasing the opponent's range (when attempting create an overshoot scenario).
The defender's main tools are lift vector placement and energy management (i.e., flying his best
numbers while max performing the aircraft).
Follow-On Merge Maneuvers/Options
As previously stated, beyond the initial neutral merge, additional variables will complicate the
fighter's decision-making process. Altitude, speed, and positional advantages will be more
pronounced on subsequent merges. In all cases however, the fighter will approach the merge in
one of three attitudes:
1.
Fighter Nose High.
2.
Fighter Nose Low.
3.
Fighter Turns Level.
The bogey likewise will be limited to these three attitudes (Nose high, nose low, level turn). The
following merge options present "mini-merge scenarios" that may develop in the course of an
engagement. These scenarios are not meant to be memorized, but rather understood in terms of
the basic BFM geometry and the principles presented thus far (i.e., the Post-Bubble section in
chapter 9, etc.).
