WotanWeave

Basic Corkscrew Avoid

The Corkscrew Avoid was a spiral or corkscrew maneuver used by starfighter pilots to evade enemy fire while maintaining a particular heading. Some Imperial veterans called the maneuver the Wotan Weave[1] after its developer, Wotan, though this name was more frequently used by Rebel pilots.[2] Commander Wedge Antilles used a variation of this tactic to enable him to launch proton torpedoes against capital ships while presenting a near-impossible target for the ship's gunners.[3]
