    Loop. A loop is performed by placing the aircraft counter one, two or three squares behind its starting position without changing its facing (see figures 8 and 9). Moving through a one-square loop counts as four squares of movement. A two-square loop counts as six squares, while a three-square loop counts as eight.

    An aircraft can turn 45-degrees  at the end of the loop. Top speed can be used if the aircraft does not turn during the movement. Loops are reversal maneuvers. If a looping craft is being tailed, the tailing aircraft must perform a loop of the same size or larger than the target aircraft’s loop or it will be reversed (see Tailing). During tailing, the maximum climb and dive in a loop is ___ meters.

    An aircraft can make only one loop per turn.
