CHAPTER SIX
SECTION LOW ALTITUDE TACTICS AND PROCEDURES
The data below the "Z" diagram is the dive recovery data. The "Dive Recovery" and "Min Eject"
altitudes are derived from the NATOPS manual. These altitudes consider the aircraft
performance and ejection seat envelope for a given dive angle and airspeed. From these two
figures, an attack crew will figure a NLT (No Lower Than) altitude. The crew may add a safety
buffer if desired (400' in the above example). The aircrew will remain above their planned NLT
altitude during the dive run.
NOTE
Fleet aircraft may require additional data such as weapons' load,
fuzing data, weapons' fragmentation data, mil settings, radar
altimeter setting, etc. on their "Z" Diagrams.
603. LOW-LEVEL ROUTE PROCEDURES
ENROUTE/ROUTE ENTRY
The section will take off and proceed to the filed route in accordance with standard section
procedures (Chapter 5).
Approaching the low-level, both aircraft will complete standard checklists in accordance with the
"T-2C Student In-flight Guide". The lead student will cancel IFR when conditions permit and
switch the flight to the appropriate FSS and check in. (Anniston Radio is the appropriate FSS for
the VR-1021 and VR-1024 routes). Additionally:
1.  Each student in the section will inform their pilots when to squawk the appropriate
transponder codes (assigned, 1200 VFR, 4000 on the low-level etc). The wingman should
squawk standby in accordance with standard formation procedures. ON VR-1021 and 1024,
wingmen will squawk 4000 to increase the SA of TCAS-equipped aircraft.
2.  On top of the route entry point the lead student will transmit a time hack on the UHF:
"TURBO, STANDBY, STANDBY, MARK." This entire UHF transmission should take no
more than a few seconds.
Combat spread formation will be utilized on the route.
When established at the appropriate low-level altitude, the OUI will challenge the IP: "TRIM
DISCONNECT". The IP will then verify on the ICS that the elevator pitch trim is disconnected.
(This procedure reduces the risk of a pitch trim runaway at low altitude).
ON THE ROUTE
Once established on the route, the lead has the standard responsibility of flying the route as
published and arriving at the target on time. The wingman's responsibility is to keep sight of the
lead, maintain the formation as briefed, and back up the lead's navigation. A wingman flying in
combat spread can expect to be 1 NM from route centerline for most of the route.
