Belyye Rozy-5

If you’re in a dogfight and you have the Hun on your tail, that is at your six-o-clock, you would want to have him in your position, that is in front of you instead, so you could drill him full of holes with your wing mounted 23mm canons.

You could make a tight 360-degree turn to come up behind him of course, but he’s not going to be sitting twiddling his thumbs while you’re turning around. He’s going to stick with you real close and the chances are that the 360-degree turn is only going to get you dizzy and not behind him. It is then that you will decide to go for the Pugachyov Cobra…….
