Tally One

Military operations brevity term:
a single target, bandit,
bogey or enemy position
has been sighted.

Opposite of "No Joy."

"The wingman is absolutely indispensable. I look after the wingman. The wingman looks after me. It's another set of eyes protecting you. That's the defensive part. Offensively, it gives you a lot more firepower. We work together. We fight together. The wingman knows what his responsibilities are, and knows what mine are. Wars are not won by individuals. They're won by teams." — Lt. Col. Francis S. "Gabby" Gabreski, USAF

Be the bad guy…

The Tally One Red Air Bandits shirt pays homage to a training platform called Red Air. These skilled men and women play the role of the bad guys in the air, faithfully replicating the tactics and capabilities of adversary air forces.

A comfortable blend of high-quality cotton (60%) and polyester (40%), the shirt has a somewhat athletic fit. If you like a looser fit, you might want to order one size up from normal.

The Red Air Bandits shirt is just one of several designs to choose from on the Tally One Store.
