And most of all, it's FUN.

We seem to run in to 2 types of engagements.
1.Level altitude head on
2.Above the enemy with 2000+ meters advantage.

1. The first engagement is in my opinion just like a 2 v 2. We need to bracket the enemy and end up with two 2 v 2 fights. I know of 3 ways to attack. 1.Normal pincer(bracket),2. One pair brackets and the other flies head-on, 3. Hook which is one pair offsets(hooks) left or right and lead-turns in for a stern attack and the other flies head on and then brackets when closer. These need some practice.

2.The second engagement requires loosing altitude until we are within 500-1000 meters above and use alternating attacks by each pair just as Mikke explained. Or just have each pair operate interdependently and maintain their E advantage doing Boom&Zoom.

Sounds simple in theory, but not as easy in practice.

There is one more scenario. After we have attacked and are low. New bandits enter and have an energy advantage.
