Escort was a mission objective which involved rendezvous with and guarding a larger ship. Fighters were required to fly parrallel to the escorted ship within 2,500 meters and not to break and engage attackers until they were within 5,000 meters of the ship being defended. It was discussed in Taggart's Tactics. It was one of five mission types which comprised 98% of flight missions flown off the TCS Tiger's Claw.
