“Kill him!”: How the US Air Force fighter pilots instill an “air battle culture”

72

American military analyst Tyler Rogoway writes about the problems of training fighter pilots in the US Air Force and the relationship between the cadet and instructor during training flights and training air battles.


How does Rogov emphasize on The Drive pages? a good instructor pilot can play a decisive role in fulfilling the dream of heaven for a motivated cadet. This role especially increases with the transition from mastering aircraft control to the study of tactics of air combat. The video presented in the article was shot during the execution of the training program for fighter aviation IFF, which is fundamental to the training of the US Air Force fighter pilots.

IFF is an eight-week course designed to turn newly graduated pilots selected for fighter flights into real fighter pilots. The 49th training fighter squadron trains pilots by teaching them discipline and instilling the appropriate culture of combat aviation pilots.

We are a fighter squadron. All our instructors are fighter pilots. We have a unique culture,

says Major Michael Overstreet, assistant commander of the 49th Squadron.

It is interesting that before completing the course, the future fighter pilot must undergo 53-week training in a special pilot training course, during which he will gain knowledge about the characteristics of the aircraft, the take-off and landing process, and high-flying pilot, and will master the skills of responding to emergency and emergency situations.

Only in this case, the pilot will switch to the IFF course, where he will be trained for flying on such fighters as the F-22 Raptor and F-35A Lightning II. But first, the pilot will have to study on the T-38C Talon - a training jet aircraft that have been used for more than half a century to train pilots of American fighter aircraft.

We are trying to help reduce training from pilot training to this course. That’s why we use this program as a means to absorb a fighter culture and understand what it means to be a fighter pilot,

says Captain Cole Stegeman of the 49th Squadron, who oversees the planning of the training process.


In the video presented in The Drive, you can watch a cadet master the tactics of air combat on a fighter. Maneuvers are performed with corrective comments from the instructor sitting in the back seat.

When the enemy’s plane falls into the cadet’s visibility range, the instructor shouts:

Follow him! Kill him! Kill him! Kill him! Kill him! Come on, he's ahead! Shoot him!

The cadet disappointedly exclaims:

I'm trying to!

A certain rigidity of the instructor is necessary in order to raise from a young cadet a real air wolf of American military aviation, as the American pilots themselves say.

Here is the T-38C pilot instructor. This is truly a teacher who shapes the lives of students through special care!

    Kill him! So for this, a fighter was created - to exterminate, and not for VIP-side escorts.

      Not only. To prevent extermination (of the same attack aircraft or bombers) is a much more important task.

        To prevent the destruction of their attack aircraft and bombers generally involves the destruction of other people's aircraft.

            Now, however much the 1943th year, and the air war has changed a lot. In addition, the practice of World War II just shows that in order to effectively protect their bombers, the enemy should not be driven away, giving him the initiative, but just attack and, if possible, destroy. The same American fighters acted accompanied by their bombers extremely aggressively, which greatly reduced losses.

              The practice of WWII shows that first you need to clear the sky at the attack site, and then send bombers with cover, the purpose of which is to drive off the enemy.
              But in general, the process is more complicated than I described.

                Well, 50 F-35 still need to bring down. winked The point is that not one of them could attack the bomber. The priority of tasks does not at all affect the need to destroy enemy aircraft. In World War II, both Germans and Americans initially cleared the battlefield, linking enemy fighters in battle, and then big uncles came with big bombs.

      I don’t even know how to comment .... I’m trying to remember when the last time there was a similar melee .... Vietnam seems to pop up. In modern conditions, it’s probably possible, but they don’t fight like that now. All possible forces and means are involved as controls, air defense, electronic warfare .... It is possible to break into a close combat range, but this is some kind of extreme case, we still have to try. Although combat maneuvering in the KBP is ...

              I don’t argue, only the battle will begin before the planes are raised (well, it should), there are many factors ... They won’t be confronted one by one, here the organization of the battle from the command post controls how many forces and means to use, how many groups, from which directions where air defense will work, well, electronic warfare will work everywhere, well, there are many factors. proceeding from this, and I say ...

        Due to electronic warfare, stelts and super maneuverability, close combat becomes most relevant. But the relevance of Foxfight has always been in question: the same Phoenix lost its goal itself (without enemy opposition) in about half of the launches. And it cost - a lemon of old bucks each. And even F-14 could drag them no more than 6 pieces.

    The house where you lived, your wife and mother,
    All that we call home, -
    Know: no one will save her,
    If you do not save her;
    Know: no one will kill him,
    If you do not kill him.
    And while he did not kill him,
    You keep silent about your love,
    The land where you grew up, and the house where you lived,
    Do not call your homeland.
    Let your brother kill the fascist,
    Let the neighbor kill the fascist, -
    It's your brother and neighbor who take revenge,
    And you do not have excuses.
    Behind someone else's back they do not sit,
    They do not take revenge on someone else's rifle.
    Since your brother killed the fascist, -
    It's him, not you soldier ....

    Just the Russian language is richer in words. There are many options to say the same thing. In the American language there is an excessively large load on words. One and the same word can have a lot of meanings. And their culture of murder, of course, is high. Much higher.

They were very complex due to the small volume of words in Ukrainian dictionaries, admired hundreds of thousands of English and set this as an example of backward Russia. Today I read, as if I plunged into the past.

                        But our researchers do not chase the shaft and do not include in the list of 200 thousand obsolete words, the same number of regional dialects and an uncountable number of obscene derivatives.

                        That 400k words, that a million is sheer writing, no more than that, because this is a count of what is interesting exclusively to narrow philologists, and even then not everyone. It makes sense, in my opinion, a technique that gives either an average number of words used in everyday life in different countries, and / or by the social groups of these countries, that is, speech as an indicator of the volume of thinking and education.

                        I strongly doubt that the GLM numbers are misleading so many.

                        Funny moment: in the publication of the Webster dictionary of the late 30s, there were something around 600 words. 000k was already in the sixties. But I’m saying this again not at all in order to somehow humiliate Russian, English, French ... This is a general tendency to degradation, so to speak, but the science fiction of the past predicted that with the development of sciences, arts and other things that require verbal descriptions, the number of words required for all these descriptions will increase, and here the alphabetical letter will greatly outperform the hieroglyphic. Yeah.
                        By the way, a similar degradation has occurred in music since the late 60s, which is no less sad.

        Do not blame Zadornov alone, he just gave what the audience eagerly demanded.

          Here you can argue.
          In my childhood, we did not consider ourselves better than the rest, both we children and adults. But when these Anschlagi went here (my mother loved such programs very much) and Zadornov’s concerts, it went off.

          Maybe I got at a time when there was a respite from this, when Western culture and goods poured into the country (I am 89-year-old).
          But here, as I wrote above, it went with Zadornov.

And the end of the 80s for the USSR and the beginning of the 90s for Russia were already fertile ground for stories on the topic "we are one fig better than everyone else."

              Yes, you can always argue about anything) But not a single piece of art or "art" (as you like to define Zadornov's monologues more) will ever "shoot" without having an audience waiting for him, he simply will not be understood. And the end of the 80s for the USSR and the beginning of the 90s for Russia were already fertile ground for stories on the topic "we are one fig better than everyone else."

            Excuse me, but in your childhood there were no jokes about stupid Chukchi, greedy Jews, homosexual inclinations of Georgians (and all Caucasians were called Georgians), Ukrainians Russophobes, stupid Moldovans, inhibited Balts? Or anecdotes about a Russian, an American and a Frenchman, where Russian necessarily wins due to ingenuity? Nobody said to you: "Why are you like a non-Russian?"

              Such jokes have always been, probably are (and will be) in any nation, except for those that do not know how to tell jokes) But not with crowded rooms and millions watching on TV during an hour and a half performance.

                Such anecdotes were, are and will be in any community, whose members consider themselves better than those about whom these anecdotes tell. Americans tell such anecdotes about blacks and Mexicans, the British about the Irish, in Israel one community tells such jokes about another (about greedy "Yemeni", explosive "Moroccans" and "Caucasians", stupid "Kurds", always drunk and dirty "Russians" men and "Russian" women-prostitutes ("Russians" include everyone who speaks Russian, except for "Georgians," married to such a wife) ... But this is completely unrelated to the position in which a given people or community stands, it is connected with the attitude towards neighbors of a different race, nationality or just a cultural group.

                  And you did not notice that the more a person is humiliated, the more he wants to recoup on someone else? In order to feel that there is someone who is even worse (it’s bad to be stupid Chukchi, for example).

              Well, about the Jews and the Chukchi, but about the Baltic states, Ukrainians and Georgians were not, at least not to recall.

        Everything went from Zadornov.

        If you were in a Soviet school, you would definitely study the works of the classics of Russian literature. And then maybe they would have learned about the writer Turgenev, who wrote at the end of the 19th century "O rich and powerful Russian language."
        About Zadornov had fun, thanks wassat

          I studied at a Russian school, but Turgenev passed, read, and not only him. For some reason, Pushkin was remembered most of all, there are direct retelling, poems, etc., we did most of it.

      You did not understand. The American language is the language of business, the binary number system does not tolerate options: either 0 or 1. This is both an advantage and a disadvantage. English is an artificial language created after the arrival of the Venetians (not all, but only "merchants" - the richest families in the world) to the islands.

        English is the language of the Anglo-Frisian subgroup of the western group of the German branch.
        American is a subspecies of English, as is the Australian dialect, for example.
        Binary reckoning (well, in its modern form) is generally Leibniz.

      The modern Russian literary language is approximately 150 words, if with dialectisms, then 000.
      Webster's Dictionary of 1961 - 400 words.

      I dare to ask, words or derivatives of words mixed up with phrases and phrases?

      Russian is richer thanks to suffixes, prefixes and any word order in the sentence, which makes it possible to play with the meaning of the sentence.
      In English there is none of this, everything is strictly in order, as in the army.

    This is a war and there is only one rule - if you don’t kill, they will kill you.

    So it should be, but how else? Apparently, a year must be studied for a pilot’s diploma. Great, just training, I think it's right. Actually, they give them a license for Cesna after 5 hours of theory and 10 hours of practice, and fly.

      do not exaggerate, after 150 hours of theory (although if you can pass the exams, then you can not study at all) and at least 40 hours of practice (but I know of no one who would pass in less than 60)

    When the enemy’s plane falls into the cadet’s visibility range, the instructor shouts:

    Follow him! Kill him! Kill him! Kill him! Kill him! Come on, he's ahead! Shoot him!

    The cadet disappointedly exclaims:

    I'm trying to!

    Well .....
    A cadet is completely incapable of accepting the challenge - it’s not his ... In vain the instructor tries to wake the man inside him. It would be better if the cadet went to the cook ....
