    Stuff went pretty fast actually.
    We did get the whole time "clear" calls from AWACS. We were just coming of a maverick attack, and I was blind at that moment.
    I was making S turns to spot Roto who was 1 with the color of the horizon from my point of view.
    Suddenly, AWACS calls out a bandit 3 miles behind me. So, I immediately called Roto that we were merged.
    At the very same moment, Roto calls out that he hears gunfire. We come in a turn, and I'm directly Tally/Visual.
    I call Roto to continue the turn, and take the shot.

    Now the question is...was the aggressor in question reallt trying to shoot roto or just put shots across his bow to make him make a move?

    First burts were a " wake-up " call. Eddie was lining up for the kill when I recognized the "THUDDA THUDDA THUDDA" as the sound of the -21's cannon and made the break turn. I never saw any tracers.

    Earlier he had good tone for an IR shot but took pity on me since it was my first MiG party. I was lucky.

    Note to self: Turn the damn mirrors back on!
