    If so, how would you do it, step-by-step?

    It's possible but the conditions have to be right. The conditions can't be that rare because 109 pilots do it to me all the time, I think it mostly involves the chasing aircraft (me in this case) thinking he has more energy to spare than he really has....

    You pretty much do it how they describe in the video.

    Doesn't work like shown in the video, though.

    Oops, it's not the one I thought it was. They seem to be describing a snap roll, though that's not what the vision shows?

    Yeah, it will maybe be possible once they include Su-30MKI with 3D thrust vectoring. Up to then, good luck trying to do this either in RL or in IL-2.

    It's possible to push your plane over the limit in IL-2, stall and shoot instinctively during the stall, but nowhere near the Tie Fighter maneouver shown in that video.

    I think the representation in the video is pretty terrible. I doubt any WWII aircraft could pull that off. I'm sure he did some sort of fantastic maneuver that wasn't anticipated by the German pilot but no idea what.

    induce the hard-turn stall

    control how it snaps so your nose comes round onto your bandit

    that "control" part is where IL2s flight modelling breaks down. planes depart not according to aerodynamics in the game

    controlling the departure is where in "in-game response" knowledge comes in.

    Funny, when I watched the first video I instantly thought of this one!

    What do you mean by "controlling the departure"?
