Hanging on a Fighter Gunnery ground school wall is this legend: THE PENALTY FOR SLEEPING IN THIS CLASS IS DEATH!

A little strong – perhaps. But fighter gunnery is an exact science and requires a corresponding approach on your part. Unfortunately, too many fighter pilots think good flying is a substitute for poor marksmanship. Too many believe they can cut down the enemy by blasting away with a terrific pattern of bullets from multiple guns. They are the ones, good pilots all, who are shot down several times on ineffective attacks before making themselves, gunnery experts. Unfortunately, some of them do not survive their initial defeats and do not get another chance to learn their subject.

Ask Me All Your Questions

This book gives you the basic principles of fighter gunnery. The principles set forth apply in training and combat. Only searching study and conscientious effort will prepare you for combat duty. Feel, and instinct does not result in hits. Aces do not learn gunnery in bull sessions; they learn it through studying and analyzing the complex relationships of bullet and target paths and speed. Attention to detail, sound reasoning, and constant practice is the only answer.
