Red and yellow lines on maps?


Recommended Posts

Basic question I know, but what do the red and yellow lines represent on the first kneeboard map, for example?

I'm guessing red is the front line, but...

It's OK, just read in the docs that the yellow line is the bomb line and red is front line.

But what is the bomb line? Could you explain?

AWAITING ED NEW DAMAGE MODEL IMPLEMENTATION FOR WW2 BIRDS

 

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

There should be a section in each briefing that explains it. It will read something like this:

 

"The current front lines are marked in red on our planning maps and the bomb line is marked in yellow. Friendly aircraft are free to attack any target beyond the bomb line, but inside, targets are attacked only by special arrangement with local ground forces.

 

The bomb line is delineated so far as practicable by well defined geographical features. In fluid situations involving the rapid advance of armored columns the bomb line may be placed from five to thirty-five miles in advance of known front-line positions. During static periods it is normally 500 yards from the current front."
