View Full Version : Air Superiority Mission

I'm on the part where you have to destroy the bombers that come in to take over the airfield, however I'm having a hell of a time on pilot level. I get decimated and I can't track the fighters it seems, when I do decide to attack them I feel pressured by time and end up getting destroyed.

Anyone have any tips for me?

I actually just beat this level on ACE tonight. When the bombers start coming in get high behind a formation and start firing ahead of them. Think I was using the Typhoon with 4x 20MM cannons. If you start getting in too close, fire a burst of rockets and turn high and back around. You won't get them all, I took out two formations, however the good thing is the base can really take a beating. When they start swarming the base follow bombers as they circle (they call them fighters because they are Me-110's) with Guns blazing and finish them off with rockets. The best thing is to just get the swarm down in size, this buys you time. The base will take less damage. Then just keep picking off planes. Try to get a couple planes each pass over the base.

It will take a few times before you get your own groove. Good luck.

I ended up getting it done by destroying some of the escorts in the previous wave (they were left over).

Man this is a hard game. :)
