I've often seen jets release their flares in dogfight or against ground threats.
How does that happen?
Are choppers able to do this, too?
Does the aircraft do it automatically like in COD: Black Ops, or would I have to press a key?
- Which key?*
- What is the strategy behind it? Against what kind of threats is it useful?
- When exactly should I release it?
*: I'm playing on the PC, but console info would be nice, too, for the sake of completeness.
