Fighter Brevity Posted by Jolly on August 19, I was really surprised when this Kadena F video came out that it was unclassified. The comm you hear in the background is real and accurate, and the video even includes tones from the Radar Warning Receiver. I always thought that was all classified, so I googled "Fighter Brevity Code" and got the following below. One word can mean a lot in an air-to-air engagement.

Some of these are dated and would never be used. One of my favorites is when Kluso made his famous call "Hey, all you guys come out of burner" before swacking a MiG in Iraq 1. So enjoy the video with the captain midnight decoder below. This video is just too cool to not post again! This common understanding, however, is dependent on the following rules of engagement: - These lists are not all inclusive.

Information call indicates a turning engagement about a specific location. BENT - Identified system inoperative. BRACKET - Indicates geometry where aircraft will maneuver to a position on opposing sides either laterally or vertically from the target. Assumes a defensive situation.

BUNT - A pushover maneuver. Establish a combat air patrol at location. The leading two groups are attempting to bracket with the trailing third group flying up the middle. No response is required if status is normal. COLD - In context; attack geometry will result in a pass or roll out behind the target; or, on a leg of the CAP pointed away from the anticipated threats.

Air-to-surface, dry or no-ordnance attack. Implies both "visual" and "tally. If no additional information is provided bearing, range, etc. FOX - Air-to-air weapons employment. GUNS - An air-to-air or air-to-surface gunshot.

HEAD - Target with an aspect of deg. ID - Directive to intercept and identify the target; also aircrew ID accomplished, followed by type aircraft. JINK - Unpredictable maneuvers to negate a gun tracking solution. KILL - Directive to commit on target with clearance to fire; in training, a fighter call to indicate kill criteria have been fulfilled. Call indicating radar returns have come together.

MEL - Directive to select military power. On AI radar, electronic deceptive jamming. Opposite of term "spike". OFF Direction - Informative call indicating attack is terminated and maneuvering to the indicated direction. POINT - Directive for an element to turn towards each other either as a defensive response or to reestablish a mutually supportive formation.

POP - Starting climb for air-to-surface attack. POSIT - Request for position; response normally in terms of a geographic landmark, or off a common reference point. Supportive role will be assumed. PUMP - A briefed maneuver to stop closure on the threat or geographical boundry while maintaining situation awareness.

PURE - Call indicating pure pursuit is being used or directive call to go pure pursuit. ROGER - Indicates aircrew understands the radio transmission; does not indicate compliance or reaction. Should include position. SICK - Described equipment is degraded. SLOW - Target with ground speed of less than kts.

SNAP - An immediate vector bearing and range to the group described. SORTED - Criteria have been met which ensure individual flight members have separate contacts; criteria can be met visually, electronically radar or both. SPLIT - Request to engage a threat; visual may not be maintained, requires flight lead acknowledgement air-to-air. SPOT - Informative that laser target designation is being received.

WELL - Described equipment is functioning properly. We will be adding more aircraft in the coming weeks.
