1、"Hoser" provides: "At AIM/ACE, 'g' restrictions were not mentioned. "what ever it takes" was the unwritten rule. When the Turkey first hit the street, Mr. & Mrs. Grumman said it was pilot limited. The TACTS range recorded 12.2 g's symmetrical during a Guns 'D' break (mentioned way back [in the forum]). The high 'g' hurt Hill Billy's neck and he was was out of the hunt for a few days. We had the brand new Blk 90 Turkey x-rayed, inspected and gone over by a team of Grummanites...... not a lose rivet, zero skin wrinkles, perfect engine mounts, no hyd or fuel leaks; Just a broke RO. NAVAIR kept slapping new 'g' restrictions on the Turkey cause they figured them to last 100yrs. Hell, they would have lasted a hunnert and fifty years with a symmetrical 9.5 'g' guidance doctrine."
2、Hawk Smith talks about Hoser pulling that maneuver at AIMVAL/ACEVAL after he managed to sneak up on him and making the tomcat "disappear" in a vapor cloud and bleed off around 250 knots I'm guessing-Hoser managed to force an overshoot.
The "Vorboshka",,, Holy s--t that brings back memories!
It is not a recommended maneuver,,,, combat necessity only. My RO Hill Billy got a sprained neck out of the deal and was out of the hunt for several days. At very high speeds,, as the bogey is just sweetening his guns solution, roll the a/c 90 degrees to bogeys lift vector, then put on a "MAX",, I Mean "MAX" "g " yank for bout 2 potatoes, then unload and roll 45 degrees back, stabilize, yank a ,max 'g' in to the vertical. This will spit him out the bottom/ overshoot and usually end up neutral. The vapor ball Monroe Hawk Smith describes was caused by the initial 12.2 "g"s... VR D-Hose As previously reported the F-14 in question was thoroughly examined for signs of overstress=zero The 12.2 'g's was recorded on the TACTS range.
