Pilots General

• In SRE pilots should be proficient in dogfighting, head-ons, CAS, and good comms/callouts.

• Pilots should have, and familiarize themselves with the SRE META, and the planes/tanks used (check the META-List, link is under SRE)

• Piloting is a sensitive division in SRE and only takes one small mistake to ruin the match.

• At BRs 7.3 and higher experimenting in the air and using pilots we are not familiar with is prohibited.

• The first half of the season is more than enough time to prove your skills, and even more important; your ability to communicate and work as a team.

Pilots (Air vs Tanks)

• Once all enemy air and SPAA have been defeated pilots are to assist allied tanks by eliminating as many enemy tanks as possible, and providing intel on enemy positions.

• Target any tank that is engaging friendly vehicles, or in a flanking position.

• If you cannot locate any immediate threats destroy the first tank you see, do not linger too long trying to look for tanks that are not there.

• When on an attack run on a tank announce that you are attacking the vehicle so pilots do not both attack the same target and kill each other, or waste ordinance.

Pilots (Air vs Air)

• In air vs. air engagements it is best to kill the enemy as soon as possible, the easiest and most risky way to do this is the head-on pass.

• Killing an enemy in a head-on offers the highest chance of winning the rest of the air engagement.

• Dying in the head-on also means you just drastically increased the chance of your own team loosing.

• Teamwork and target switching will beat even the best duelist in the world.

• Know when to switch targets, and when to zoom away.

Pilots (Air vs SPAA)

• In air va. SPAA engagements pilots need to systematically do the following things:

1 – locate ALL enemy SPAA.

2 – Setup an attack plan (pilots will coordinate so that they all engage the SPAA at once from different angles/locations, who ever is targeted by the SPAA is to dodge and “bait” the SPAA, while the other players put a rocket/bomb into the distracted vehicle). When SPAA is targeting you, you announce that the SPAA is attacking you. If you are attacking the SPAA announce that you are attacking the SPAA.

3 – In case of failure, pilots are to maneuver to stay alive and exit the AO safely. Once outside of the enemy SPAA’s range pilots are to gain energy/speed and setup for another attack run just a they did the first time (this time killing the bloody bitch).

*Note: IFVs such as the Bradley/ BMP2(M)/ Begleitpanzer/ Warrior/ etc, are to be treated just as dangerous as SPAA and must be eliminated just as quickly
