I was really surprised when this Kadena F video came out that it was unclassified. The comm you hear in the background is real and accurate, and the video even includes tones from the Radar Warning Receiver. I always thought that was all classified, so I googled "Fighter Brevity Code" and got the following below. Here's another look at the video and I'll include the code below for those of you unfamiliar with the brevity codes being used in the video.
One word can mean a lot in an air-to-air engagement. There's just not enough time on the radio to use CB Trucker Comm in a fight that may only last 30 seconds. That's not to say that CB comm has never been used before. Some of these are dated and would never be used. I don't know of a fighter pilot in his right mind who would ever say "Box" or "Head" on the radio! That would require an immediate response from your wingman "Head, who said Head, I'll take some of that!
Feel free to include any War stories that you may have of non-standard comm saving the day. One of my favorites is when Kluso made his famous call "Hey, all you guys come out of burner" before swacking a MiG in Iraq 1. So enjoy the video with the captain midnight decoder below. This video is just too cool to not post again! The following are two lists of operational brevity words and terms to provide common understanding and minimize radio transmissions while executing tactics described in this manual.
This common understanding, however, is dependent on the following rules of engagement:. Information call indicates a turning engagement about a specific location.
BENT - Identified system inoperative. BONE - Term used to indicate the formation will remain in a Racetrack-type holding pattern with all wingmen's tums into lead ; exit formation must be specified by lead. BRACKET - Indicates geometry where aircraft will maneuver to a position on opposing sides either laterally or vertically from the target. Assumes a defensive situation. BUNT - A pushover maneuver. Establish a combat air patrol at location.
The leading two groups are attempting to bracket with the trailing third group flying up the middle. No response is required if status is normal. COLD - In context; attack geometry will result in a pass or roll out behind the target; or, on a leg of the CAP pointed away from the anticipated threats.
Air-to-surface, dry or no-ordnance attack. Implies both "visual" and "tally. If no additional information is provided bearing, range, etc.
FAST - Target speed is estimated to be knots ground mach 1 or greater. FOX - Air-to-air weapons employment. GUNS - An air-to-air or air-to-surface gunshot. HEAD - Target with an aspect of deg. ID - Directive to intercept and identify the target; also aircrew ID accomplished, followed by type aircraft.
JINK - Unpredictable maneuvers to negate a gun tracking solution. KILL - Directive to commit on target with clearance to fire; in training, a fighter call to indicate kill criteria have been fulfilled. Call indicating radar returns have come together. MEL - Directive to select military power. On AI radar, electronic deceptive jamming. Opposite of term "spike". OFF Direction - Informative call indicating attack is terminated and maneuvering to the indicated direction.
POINT - Directive for an element to turn towards each other either as a defensive response or to reestablish a mutually supportive formation. POP - Starting climb for air-to-surface attack. POSIT - Request for position; response normally in terms of a geographic landmark, or off a common reference point. Supportive role will be assumed. PUMP - A briefed maneuver to stop closure on the threat or geographical boundry while maintaining situation awareness.
PURE - Call indicating pure pursuit is being used or directive call to go pure pursuit. ROGER - Indicates aircrew understands the radio transmission; does not indicate compliance or reaction. Should include position. SICK - Described equipment is degraded. SLOW - Target with ground speed of less than kts. SNAP - An immediate vector bearing and range to the group described. SORTED - Criteria have been met which ensure individual flight members have separate contacts; criteria can be met visually, electronically radar or both.
SPLIT - Request to engage a threat; visual may not be maintained, requires flight lead acknowledgement air-to-air. SPOT - Informative that laser target designation is being received. WEDGE - Tactical formation of two or more aircraft with the single in front and the other aircraft laterally displaced on either side behind the leader's wing line.
WELL - Described equipment is functioning properly. Don't forget to customize your garb with your own callsign click on edit text.
We will be adding more aircraft in the coming weeks. Don't forget about our Original Store for great fighter pilot shirts and cool squadron golf shirts.
