DCS F-14A/B Pre-order Now Available at Heatblur

Recommended Posts

In a word: FLAPS!  Use them in turns, and at high altitude, but NOT above around 350-400 knots-ish as you will break them.  No need for afterburner going downhill, but plenty of gas for using it uphill.  Don't use flaps going uphill, as you need to minimize drag to maintain energy.  If your wings start to sweep, you're going too fast in a turn fight.  You can easily dominate a fight with use of either turn, due to the high lift of the sweeping wing, or you can use energy, as you have bagfulls of fuel.  Use your mirrors to check your slats as your flaps are directly linked.  Slats out? Your flaps are down.
