The load requirements in most specifications are based upon experience with previous aircraft and do not reflect the future potential needs arising from technology advances. Since load assumptions of future aircraft have a great impact on weigh, inservice time and flight performance, a manned combat simulation with future type aircraft, in the expected future combat scenario, can fill the gap between the load assumptions based upon the specifications and the actual spectrum of these assumptions in air combat. In modern unstable aircraft the flight control system has to manage all limitations imposed by load assumptions. In this area a manned simulation can help oto optimise the adaption of the structure envelope to the actual flight and maneuver envelope under the aspect or carefree handling.
