CHAPTER SIX
SECTION LOW ALTITUDE TACTICS AND PROCEDURES
5.  Visually identify and arrive on target during low-level flight within + 1NM and + 12
seconds.
6.
Make the appropriate ICS and UHF comms during the target attacks.
7.
Compute and apply winds as required to maintain course and time.
8.  Successfully get the flight to and from the low-level route in accordance with standard
section and FAM procedures.
602. LOW-LEVEL ROUTE PLANNING
The success of any low-level mission is directly dependent on quality pre-flight planning. The
T-2C Advanced student is generally well versed in the skills of low-level planning and chart
stripping. Students are required to prepare original low-level charts for VR-1021 and VR-1024.
NOTE
While VR-1021 and VR-1024 are the routes most often flown
during the WEPS-1 and WEPS-2 sorties, other routes published in
the DOD AP-1B may be planned and briefed in the event of a
cross-country or squadron detachment.
The T-2C low-levels will be flown at 300 knots groundspeed, 500 feet AGL; utilizing 60 angle
of bank turns to the Initial Point (IP). At the IP, the section will accelerate to 360 knots for
the final target attack. Construction of strip charts and divert charts will be in accordance with
the following standards:
CHARTS
The chart planning room is located in the VT-86 academic building across from the instructor's
office. You should find all of the charts necessary to prepare any and all routes required in
WEPS. Currently we do not use either JNC or GNC charts in VT-86. These are for long range
planning and therefore are not required for VT-86 flights. The charts required for planning your
events are as follows:
ONC - 1:1,000,000 (Used for the divert chart)
TPC - 1:500,000 (Used for strip chart production)
The final product, a route strip chart, should be approximately kneeboard size when closed.
Larger strip charts (T-39 size) are difficult to manage in the tight confines of a T-2C cockpit.
The divert chart should be of sufficient size to cover the operating area of the route. For the
1021, 1024, and WEPS-3 flight, all 3 routes may be placed on one divert chart due to the close
proximity of the routes.
