    Where are good visual guides to air combat maneuvers?

    Where are some good on-line visual guides to air combat maneuvers? I've seen them before, but I can't find them now. With good wheather gone, I'm finally getting some decent flight time in and am becoming pretty good at shooting down evenly matched AI aircraft. When I get up enough courage I'll go on-line and fight you big dogs. Are AI aircraft good practice?

    yes...AI are good if you set them as Aces.....until you follow them close...they know the convergance that you set on your planes and take evasive just at the right time

    Combat manouvres...I have loads as compressed mpegs but I ran outta room on my web site

    It took me ages to compress them......I can email them to you if you want.

    email me at zak33@hexus.org

    I'll do it when I get home

    Fighter Combat Tactics and Manovers by Robert Shaw published by US Naval Insistute

    Its pricey though £20 + Post and Pack and its a hefty book so you could be looking at up to £5.00 ontop the paperback version is 17 odd on amazon this is a hardback

    ...and some amazing book. Definative guide and reference work. But it will be like going back to school and studying trigonometry or the like.....heavy going....not bedtime reading, but well worth it if you are dedicated to improving or understanding your sim combat flying.
