Cobra

1 Manoeuvre in which from level flight at moderate airspeed pilot applies maximum symmetric nose-up command, reaching AOA 90° up to possibly 130°, when control neutralised for flip-down recovery to level flight about 5 s later. Modest gain in height, large loss in airspeed [energy], for dynamic braking.
2 Co-optimized booster for reusable applications.
3 Coastal battlefield reconnaissance and analysis (USMC).
4 Collection of broadcasts from remote assets.
