Basic fighter maneuvers BFM are tactical movements performed by fighter aircraft during air combat maneuvering also called ACM, or dogfighting , to gain a positional advantage over the opponent. BFM combines the fundamentals of aerodynamic flight and the geometry of pursuit, with the physics of managing the aircraft's energy-to-weight ratio , called its specific energy. Maneuvers are used to gain a better angular position in relation to the opponent. They can be offensive, to help an attacker get behind an enemy; or defensive, to help the defender evade an attacker's air-to-air weapons. They can also be neutral, where both opponents strive for an offensive position or disengagement maneuvers, to help an escape. Classic maneuvers include the lag pursuit or yo-yo, which add distance when the attacker may overshoot the target due to higher airspeed, the low yo-yo, which does the opposite when the attacker is flying too slow, the scissors, which attempts to drive the attacker in front of the defender, and the defensive spiral, which allows a defender to disengage from an attacker. Situational awareness is often taught as the best tactical defense, removing the possibility of an attacker getting or remaining behind the pilot; even with speed a fighter is open to attack from the rear.

Fighter Combat - Tactics and Maneuvering

The sun position in aerial combat is the pilot 's ability to position the aircraft relative to the sun in relationship to the position of the enemy aircraft. The sun position has had different application to different generations of aircraft.

Engagement-level simulation is a quantitative way to evaluate the effectiveness of weapon systems before construction and acquisition, minimizing the risk of investment. Though contractors have built simulation systems with high fidelity models of weapon systems and battlefields, developing competent tactics to give full play to new weapon systems in simulation experiments is labor intensive, as most classical tactics tend to be out of date. In this work, we proposed a tactics exploration framework TEF that applied grammar-based genetic programming GP to generating and evolving tactics in the engagement-level simulation. Tactics are represented with modular behavior trees BTs for compatibility with the genetic operators. Experiments to explore submarine tactics have been conducted to observe and study the exploration process.
