Thread: BVR Tactics

  1. #1

    BVR Tactics

    There are a number of DCS modules either available or in development for fighter aircraft that were designed with Beyond Visual Range (BVR) combat in mind. This essentially offers a whole new area of the simulation that will need attention and the development of tactics and procedures. Rather than wait for the modules to be released, I would like to start reading myself into BVR tactics and terminology.

    Having hunted around, I have found the following documentation all of which includes some BVR-related content:

    Basic Fighter Maneuvering (BFM) and All Weather Intercept (AWI)
    NAVAL Air Training Command CNATRA P-825 (07-14) Flight Training Instruction Advanced UMFO T-45C/VMTS

    Air Combat Maneuvering
    NAVAL Air Training Command CNATRA P-1289 (08-09) Flight Training Instruction T-45 Strike and IUT

    Fighter Combat - The Art and Science of Air-to-Air Combat
    Robert L Shaw

    My question to the community, does anyone have additional source material on BVR that they could make available?

    If you get warnings about untrusted certificates, just continue. (As with most governmental/military sites)
