Hi,

Could you please suggest guides, videos, books and any other materials that could help learning how to efficiently use Boom&Zoom tactics in DCS?

Thank you in advance!

You might find what you are looking for on YouTube if you search for "Energy Management" or the like.

Shoot, there are a bazillion articles on this and have been for a long time. I started flying Forgotten Battles in 2003 and read up to support my "fun zone" of flying US planes only online. Start with SimHQ and YouTube, easy places to find articles relavant to this.

BnZ is pretty easy once you grasp the concepts. Here's a 4-part manual on the subject. It may be a bit (or a lot) excessive, but at least it's comprehensive.
