Fighter jet Combat Fundamentals Manual


This manual is based on Multi-command handbook 11-F16 volume 5. Most information is left out due to the limits of Arma’s air operations, avionics and area of operations. This brings a 290 page manual back to little less than 50 pages.
The manual is designed to provide pilots the needed information to make the right decisions during any phase of a tactical mission. This manual provides no authority or sanctions to depart from the established training procedures and directives, nor is it directive in nature.

The details within this manual are based on John Spartan's & Saul's F/A-18. But are easily adaptable for any fast Jet.
