Fighter Combat: Tactics and Manoeuvring
The Authorative Text on
Modern Fighter Tactics
As a pilot soon to commence lead in fighter training, I have found
this an indispensable guide. It is a textbook, holding little of
interest for the general reader, but if you fly aircraft or wish
to understand that supreme form of tactics in the three dimensional
sphere, then it doesn't get better than this.
for the serious air combat sim pilot (any era).
If you want to become an accomplished air combat sim pilot, this
book is fundamental. From the perspective of a dedicated Air Warrior
player, this book picks up where B.P. Anderson's 'Unofficial' AW
Manual leaves off. The diagrams are a great help and the book is
not cluttered up with any pointless anecdotes. It gives you the
straight dope on the basics of ACM and then goes from there, leading
up to the most advanced maneuvers and tactics. Shaw has written
a book that will likely never be surpassed. More than highly recommended.
