    Hello everyone!
    I am kind of new on this forum, but not a newbe.
    I've tried to find a thread about this but so far I dindn't. As a civil pilot and player of ww2 aircraft simulators I want to learn about air tactics for fighters, interceptors, dive bombers and carpet bombers. Also about wingman tactics in air combat.
    Please be kind and pass me a link to a preview's thread if exist and excuse me for this one, or if no thread exist, I hope to be a good one for many of us.

    Best regards,
    Vincentiu.

    Welcome Le Chevalier!

    I tried to find specific threads but I had good success with this.

    In the Search function, type "Thach Weave" and then check all the threads. A few go over different tactics for different theatres.

    Good luck!

    Welcome aboard, Le Chevalier!

    There's a number of threads covering the tactics used by Pilots in actual combat, and you can also check the particular gaming sections for members who are active in combat sims for thier personal experiences in combat sims.

    I'm active in the IL-2 Sturmovik thread for the most part, and I know of some great discussions in there, here's a few:

    Thanks, everyone! Glad to be around you, poeple! I'll look every place you place here and also try to find the books. I appreciate your effort for me :)

    Got it ;)! Thanks a lot!
    Kind of lot to read so will require some time, but the winter is coming and real flight activity will be less, so I'll have plenty of time to do it!

    Cheers everyone!
    Vincentiu.
