The tactic of taking out enemy fighters before they have a chance to engage or intitiate their missions. It usually involves shooting down enemy fighters in transit, or by bombing them in situ. Interceptors and other large fighters are normally used for in this role, but bombers and drones are also used. Some fighters are designed solely for the purpose of Anti-Fighter Warfare. The ST01 Scytheon, for example, is generally only used for this purpose.
