OP FRICTION Couple of AAR Points:
Things to sustain:
- The importance of clarifying on the ground a maximum of data possible like the T/O Sequence, general flight plan, VUL-time scheme of manoeuvre, etc. 
- For a CAP, we choose a GRINDER-Racetrack-similar method with Bandar Length as most northern point using a 360/180 direction - 20nm long. in other words, when one jet is coming north (or "hot") 20nm south of Bandar, the second one is "cold" resetting back 20nm south... worked very well.
- During the CAP, myself and Bunz designed how we would respond to an incoming BOGEY/OUTLAW/HOSTILE/WHATEVER and which method of engagement, CRANK-NOTCH and Decision Range.

To improve:
- When a BRAA is given, allow a few seconds/minutes for the concerned flights to sort their shit out. WAY TOO MUCH BRAAs during the early phases of the engagement, too often when not requested. At the early stages, I totally lost track of what was going on. When a BRAA is provided, flight lead and its dash-2 need time to sort out who does what, where and when. There was so much chatter in the air that it was impossible for me to provide any insight of what was going on and build my SA. 
- For flights not committed yet waiting for their turn while other flights are in the breach and engaged, stop locking shit with your radar. At too many times I was engaging combat or trying to figure what was going on and I ended up being BUDDYSPIKED by an allied flight and got my RWR screaming at me at a moment that a screaming RWR is of outmost importance... and then I had to wait for everybody else on the comms net to stop talking to call a BUDDYSPIKE...
- Adopt a proper altitude. Me and Bunz decided to block 1000' below CONTRAIL which was 28 000'. When we got a BRAA from an incoming aircraft flying at 17 000', we couldn't see nothing with our radar. During the course of the OP, I decided to fly at the exact same altitude that was provided in the BRAA... that is when my radar screen got filled up with blips all over the place...

One last point : we are not war-thorn air fighters yet, it would be good to adopt a crawl-walk-run sequence of training. Yesterday it was a little bit the ACAPOLYPSE of aerial combat at a point that we still struggle to figure a BRAA properly...

If there is another pilot willing to fly as US Navy on the carrier, I will assign a USNF flight to an existing tasking.
