Your very first formation

You'll want to do your very first formation in something that handles very well like a light jet, but doesn't have too much acceleration to avoid overshoots or dramatically dropping back.

Few people know this, so instead here is a broad overview of general fighter types and their uses. The lightweight fighter: Think f-16. These are the lightwei...

Basic wingman tactics

[box2][box1] This guide focuses on the two man flight. The reason for this being that every man should only have to worry about one other person, and what the leader of the entire squad tells them. So essentially if you have six allies flying around, you should break them up into three groups of two...

AGM

The AGM-65 is a much-maligned weapon in ys, due to the much lower numbers that can be carried relative to rockets (one agm often takes up a hardpoint that otherwise holds 19 rockets, and rockets seem to have better range) and because targeting something actually worth shooting it at in high-density ...

strike profiles

[box2][box1] Though the most commonly used attack with the 500 lb bombs is the dive bombing attack due to the time you have to line up the bomb, it is often more effective to use these somewhat more difficult profiles to come in and do the bombing strike.
