Hi

Now i feel a little silly asking this.

What does BnZ and TnB mean ? (newb) the reason i ask i notice that you can get banned for doing it and as i have no idea what it is i dont want to get banned for doing it unawares.

I done a search for bnz could not find the meaning for it only the debate as a valid or none valid tactic.

Is there a list of IL-2 abrievations around ? i see pilots talk alot in abrievations online.

Thanks chaps http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

BnZ stands for Boom and Zoom and refers to the tactic of attacking an aircraft in a single pass using a significant speed advantage, normally gained from an altitude advantage, then egressing from the situation with a climb to regain the altitude advantage and place you out of harms way.

TnB stands for Turn and Burn and refers to the tactic of using a turning advantage to either maintain a gun solution on the opponent's six or to turn and reposition yourself on an attacking opponent's six.

Yippee.

If someone bans you for using BnZ or TnB then thank them and move on to a server run by people who count. They are legit tactics used by the pilots who faught in the planes we pretend to fly. Wont go on because there are other threads on this you have probably seen.

Just a fun clip explaining flight tactics banter

TnB is what used to be derogatorily termed "yank and bank" and involves attempting to fly a late war fighter as if it was a biplane. You end up with furballs of multiple planes whizzing around in circles well below 1000 metres.

Strictly speaking the term does not refer to all angles and turn fighting but specifically means a style of fighting that involves latching onto the tail of an enemy and following him around like a puppy dog.

BnZ is a simplified version of energy fighting that involves high speed passes and taking quick shots before fleeing out of harms way at high speed.

Neither is overly historical and both styles take a simplistic approach to combat.
