Default Help with aerial combat: How?

The problem is that I've never been able to really practice dogfights well in PR, usually because co-op servers are just where you spam missiles to get a kill, and no one actually uses the PR jets.

So how do you fight?

Usually (for me anyways,) it just comes down to how fast you are and skill.
I prefer the MiG over the F-16 because of the AA-12s. I just find them to be really good in a dogfight, due to the ability to really F*&% over the other guy . Now to something actually post related-

(General)
1.When in a dogfight, try to get in close, and DONT lose track of the target for a seconds. Use the control button to look around and keep an eye on him. If you are close enough, dont forget about that really big gun sitting under your feet. Hit left click when the reticle is over your target, and watch the fireworks.

(Manouevering)
2.Here is a big part to the dogfight. Outflying your opponent (Usually the class 3 noob)
Nice, big fancy turns can come in handy when trying to kill your target. If your locked, try some crazy manouveres (i.e. twists, turns, barrel rolls) and do your best to either get behind him, or get away from him. Usually, my pinky finger is usually glued to the shift button when doing so.

(Landing)
3. Im going over this cause i can.
Rule 1: DONT. FUCKING. CRASH.

And there is a quick and basic guide to dogfighting, with a little sarcasm mixed in.
If your a nub and still need practice, find a traning server with a few people in it and fly around a bit, get a feel for it. Also, if you want to do CAS support, make sure your the first squad up. Get the squad ready etc. and hit enter the second your see 1:30.

That is all.
Your welcome Hunter.

Get up high, fly around the map in a circle avoiding the centre, keep looking for the other jet and most of the time you see him first, you win.

there is no such thing as a dog fight in PR its just who sees who first and if your on his tail you win that's all there is to it, I remember when there were dog fight's only on the PR training mini mod.

Thats pretty much it. If you're the only in front and hes behind you, you might as well just bail out then and there. PR Flying =/= Maneuvering.

They need to take out the vBF2 coded jets on training maps. This causes a bias for people to use them for practice when those jets aren't even used in deployment. They fly VERY different from the PR jets. The fact that they are even on the training server pretty much discourages any real training for jet fighting.

Those are for the bots to fly. If you gave them a PR style coded jet, then they'd crash on takeoff.
