# Would it be better to limit AOA in F16 jet in dogfights more than it is now? [closed]

Would limiting the angle of attack to a maximum of 13 degrees by the fly by wire system help pilot gain advantage over his/her enemy during aerial one to one combat?

• The headline kind of makes sense, the rest, not so much. Commented Mar 26, 2020 at 11:48
• I asked due to the fact that there is a decaying of the speed at higher AOA if the F16 pilot want preserve their speed to not go beyond this value of their AOA if must do ACM Commented Mar 26, 2020 at 11:51
• Ok. First: you are relying on people knowing what ACM/BFM is. If you just wrote "maneuvering", it would immediately be more obvious for anyone what this might be about. Second: the order in which you have placed the words it and is makes the sentences statements, not questions. I do realize english is not your native language, but this is a very basic thing. Third: what does 11/13 degrees mean? So basically you are stating here that AoA should be kept under 0.8461538462 degrees to minimize loss of speed. Commented Mar 26, 2020 at 12:06
• The AOA is the angle of attack (airflows which will meet the wing) The value I give is maximum 13 AOA not more than and speed about 400knots. Commented Mar 26, 2020 at 12:13
