Tips on Dogfighting at night?
 
I'm finding that the Campaign for the MIG-21Bision are mostly at night. Wondering if there are any tips for someone on how to dogfight something you can't see? (except by radar.)

One thing I notice that I need help with is when I pick up a contact on the scope and see it on the left or right of my heading. When I turn to get the contact in the proper center to lock it up, it just disappears from the scope all together then its just flailing around to find it again. Is there a rate of turn that I need to stay under to have the radar properly collect radar returns that it sends out?

What are you supposed to do in the campaign's night missions then?

Interception only at night time. You hit and run to the base. No dogfight.

When you get radar contact to the right or left do small corrections and take care to keep your last heading after the correction. If contact still not show in scope, do an inverted and scan slight down.

The inverting trick still works? I thought that was a bug.

How do you navigate? I get the rsbn and arc, but a lot of the target points are not by any of the stations. Like mission 3, it's in the middle of the mountains.

During an intercept you should be guided by ground controllers, hence the term GCI: Ground Controlled Intercept.

Is not a bug, it's how that radar work. If you put the radar elevation in the F18 and go inverted, it should work too.

It is not how the radar works. The radar is stabilized in a range of 70° to both sides in roll to the horizon. Whatever happens afterwards I do not know, but it will for sure not center itself in the opposite position.
