CHAPTER SIX
SECTION LOW ALTITUDE TACTICS AND PROCEDURES
2.
Civilian divert airfields will be annotated with a triangle and field identifier.
3.
Military divert airfields will be annotated with a square and field identifier.
4.
A suitable divert field will have 5000 feet (minimum) of hard surface runway.
5.  List the corresponding TACAN channel associated with the field as well as Approach and
Tower Control frequencies. An excellent planning technique is to paste a miniature approach
plate field diagram for each divert on the back of the divert chart.
6.  From each point on the route, black ink "divert arrow" to the nearest field will be drawn.
The heading, distance, and BINGO fuel required from the point to its corresponding divert
airfield will be annotated in black near the arrow.
7.  BINGO fuel is the fuel required to fly a BINGO profile (found in the T-2C NATOPS
Pocket Checklist) from any point to the nearest suitable divert and land with 600 LBS.
"BINGOing" is an emergency procedure.
"Z" DIAGRAMS
The final step required for planning a T-2C low-level will be creating the "Z" Diagram, which
will be utilized for the target attacks on the route. "Z" Diagrams provide an easy to read, graphic
illustration of weapons pattern and weaponeering data necessary for the safe and accurate
delivery of ordnance. "Z" Diagrams will be included on briefing boards and kneeboard cards for
all WEPS flights. (Figure 6-2)
"Z" Diagram data is derived from two sources: the aircraft's Tactical Manual (TACMAN) and
the aircraft's NATOPS Manual. In the fleet, attack parameters such as dive angle, release
altitude, and release airspeed are found in TACMANs. A jet's TACMAN will also contain data
such as ordnance fragmentation patterns, weapon's time of fall, fuzing data, etc. Fleet
TACMANs are classified manuals.
NOTE
In VT-86, we do not utilize a TACMAN. All ordnance deliveries
are simulated. The dive parameters and dive recovery data
provided in this FTI are valid for training purposes only.
All "Z" diagrams in this FTI (the Weapons Division chapter contains "Z" Diagrams as well) are
depicted with generic AGL altitudes. To be used safely, these altitudes must be adjusted for
target elevation and presented as MSL attitudes. All "Z" Diagrams on briefing cards and
kneeboard cards shall be given as MSL altitudes.
