Lag Pursuit

This can be used when the promary cause of overshootingis excess speed. Basically it consists of maintaining position astern but outside the turn radius of the defending firghter. In this manner both speed advantage and initiative are retained, the attacker matching the defender's rate of turn id degrees per secound while remaining concealed in the blind spot beneath the defender's tail. Lag persuit is best countered by tightening the turn into a spiral dive. The temptation is to reverse and commence scissoring, but this is a good way to die if the attacker is on the ball.
