Air Duel: 80 Years of Dogfighting

For those of you who just want to get up there and fight one-on-one in an accurate historical setting. Duel Mode provides a choice of six eras and two typical opposing aircraft. You will start from a position of your own choice and you will only have one opponent to shoot down. Duel Mode is recommended for Rookie pilots who want to learn the basic air combat manoeuvres and get experience of their aircraft handling ability.
The Basics of Air Combat:
- Surprise is your strongest weapon. 80% of 'kills' are over before the victim knows of his hazardous position.
- Use the sun. Keep it behing you if possible.
- Do not stay on a predictable course. Tack' diagonally to and fro.
- Don't be caught instrument watching. Keep looking out of the cockpit preferably all around {top fighter aces in WW2 were known as 'swivelheads'!].
- Use all the available outside views, especially 'Heads-Up', Tactical and Inverse Tactical Views.
- Watch your Six {your rear]. This is your major blind spot, the optimum position for an enemy fighter who's going to shoot you down.
- Attack decisively and aggressively. Be sure of your first shot. This may be your only chance!.
