Covers how to use your fighter properly, pursuit and attack curves for differing target types and range estimation, how to use the gun sight correctly and how to aim with some offset for the moving target.

 

Lots more information including gun harmonisation charts for the US fighters and ground attack aircraft P51 Mustang, P38 Lightning and P47 Thunderbolt and the aircraft used in Europe.

 

This manual includes newer later roles for fighter aircraft where rockets had been developed and dive bombing were now common weapons of a fighter.

 

Printed with colored diagrams and illustrations. 

 

124 pages with illustrations tables and charts on virtually every page.
