Dogfight - The Gentle Courage
The term DOGFIGHT refers to an aerial battle between fighter aircrafts - actual dogfighting first appeared during World War I. After the invention of the first airplanes for warfare, forward-firing machine guns were mounted on the fighter aircraft, which required the pilots to manoeuvre themselves behind the enemy aircrafts. The aircrafts battling for the rear position resembled dogs fighting and chasing to catch one another’s tail, and therefore the term DOGFIGHT came about. In actual combat, DOGFIGHT is not all about chasing after the 6 o’clock position of the opponent. Tactical and effective fighter manoeuvres may depend on the advancement of aircraft, weapon and also specific combat situation. Pilots must react instinctively against the opponent’s position, speed and elevation, while considering his aircraft’s own turn radius and engine response rate. The pilot who secures the advantageous position will instantly hold the upper hand in the battle, applying an extreme pressure against the opponent.
