I've seen some players send an SOS during a game.  How do you do this?

Thanks 

Bill

But most of the time no one responds...

Pressing F4. This is the default key to call "Cover Me", better than SOS. I dont know why but they answer this calling more than SOS.

 

To ensure this you can go to Config -> Controls -> Look for "Cover Me!"

Thanks.  I've used clear my tail pretty successfully.  

Usually people hit SOS when they are alone, far away from others, and outnumbered at least 3 to 1 and will be dead before anyone gets there, imho. What I like is the letters are over the plane, everyone can see.

It seems like the ground attack planes use cover me.

 

Thanks

Pressing F1 at the beginning of a match (during or after the countdown) will give you a help screen that displays the default hotkeys for all the in-game messages you see.

I discovered it is the "clear my tail" which triggers sos over tour plane and "clear my tail" is displayed on the chat board.

Thanks again Bill for pointing this out usually I am getting hammered by 2 or 3 and help would be nice. At least it might allow me to extend out of the fight and then re engage. Just wrote down the F1 menu also.  Calico Jack

Not responding is so mean. That is why I always respond with F6. Enjoy.
