Tactical vectoring equipment

a plurality of bi-color lights is mounted to the stern of a ship such as an aircraft carrier. The lights are arranged so that they are visible from an escort ship that is following the aircraft carrier while attempting to maintain a selected range and angular position relative to the aircraft carrier. The lights are arranged such that the number of lights of each color that are visible from the escort ship depends upon the angular position of the escort ship relative to the aircraft carrier.
