    Chased by MIG-29

    Oh and another thing, if you're engaged with a hostile fighter, the FIRST thing you do is hit the big red emergency jettison button. If you try and keep hold of your A/G weapons you have no chance of winning the fight.

    This was my first duel with Flanker / Fulcrum and yes I flew low and offensive and however, at some point I thought theat I got him. Flanker has already been on my 3 oclock.... maybe next time

    Awesome techniques, thanks alot guys!! Hope that all pilots that read this stop being scared of the flanker .He,s tough but not invincible, i did kinda hated him at first but he really adds some suspense, and forces pilots to work together!! Like a well oiled Machine!

    I have this one bound to my hotas , with using pinky paddle / switch as a modifier, since its kinda A no - go for me to need to grasp the mouse or search for the keyboard shortcut while being defensive .
    In that scenario every second counts.

    That's actually a good idea.

    While were on that road, try following binds as well.

    Paddle + Landing gear warning mute ( on throttle = Landing gear

    Paddle + Pickle button ( 3 times) = Eject
    ( dont read this line if it doesnt imply for you.

    Paddle + Pinky switch = Turn of Master Caution Warning

    If I say now that I hardly need the eject or master caution switches, you are not going to believe me I guess?

    You are right for not believing me

    Another one I have: Paddle+Pac1= toggle landing gear.

    Going back to the flanker im just amazed at the intercepts it makes without ever showing up on our RWR....is GCI simulated for the russians? Its very hard to get a visual when he comes in from a 3 mile low trail...Comeon AWACS

    The Flankers (and the Mig-29) have EOS. You can be pretty sneaky with it.
    Doesn't show up on the RWR. And by the time you hear the MWS going off, you're basically dead, because most likely that's an R-73 coming your way

    More correctly - IRST (InfraRed Search and Track) - even peskier passive sensor that has recently been used with great success by RAF Eurofighters (PIRATE sensor) against Raptors - according to RAF pilots, F-22s are just big, glowing targets in the skies
