I have been stuck on this mission, Area 5 startegic mission, for so long. I get past the first part of the mission but right when i enter the second part i get targeted and i blow up. Does anyone have any tips for this mission? This would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Sure I know this is an old post but I am going to reply anyway.

Firstly make sure you have a plane with medium range missiles.
As soon as you start the second part, climb with afterburners to 10,000ft.

Soon you will see the fighters coming in below. Select your medium range missiles and get a lock on (when i say lock on here I mean when they have a box around them not when it says "shoot").

When you have a lock on, fire one missile, then change target. Continue firing all your missiles.

If you are on beginner mode, your missiles will recharge so you can continue until all targets are dead.

Be sure to keep turning as you kill as you will find that targets will appear behind you. If you are turning at the time, it means they will not immediately begin locking onto you and firing allowing you to acquire them with your missiles.

If you are on expert or hell mode, fire all your missiles and then land.

It is also advisable to take 2-4 short range missiles.

My setup so far is with an F15-E with 4 Medium and 4 short range air to air missiles with 6 of those small air to ground missiles.

I dont take bombs as they make you so much heavier and thus adversly effect mobility!
