Dogfight Watches - By Created Date: Newest to Oldest

 

           The origin of the term DOGFIGHT, which refers to a close-proximity aerial battle between fighter aircraft, can be traced to the years following the World War I. The first written reference to the modern day usage of the words comes from Fly papers, by History of 24 squadron, in 1919. After the invention of the first airplanes for warfare, forward-firing machine guns were mounted on the fighter aircraft, which required the pilots to maneuver themselves behind the enemy aircraft. The aircraft's battling for the rear position resembled dogs fighting and chasing to catch each other's tail, and therefore the term DOGFIGHT came about. Tactical and effective fighter maneuvers 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.

           When World War II broke out, pilots began to show off their Dogfighting tactics that they have been studying for a long time. Pilots must react instinctively against the opponent's position, speed, and elevation while considering his own aircraft's turn radius and the engine response rate. The pilot who secures the advantageous position at “dead-six” will instantly possess the upper hand in the battle, applying an extreme pressure against the opponent.
