Stuck on Mission 9

I must really suck at this game, even on easy I can't beat this level. If I go straight for the flying fortress the planes shoot me before I can kill it and if I go for the planes the fortress shoots me with cruise missiles. What am I supposed to do for this mission to be completed, or what should I kill first.

EDIT: This thread can be deleted, I eventually gave up and returned the game.

I beat this level on expert yesterday. FINALLY. I took my F22A Raptor and XMA6 missles. Leave Shamrock on cover and go after the side ships. One at a time preferably. After one goes down your allied attack fills. Use it up on the other ships and keep unloading XMA6 missles till you're out. I more or less ignored the aigigon or whatever it's called until the other planes were all down. They all go down the same. Shoot all the original targets and the engines appear. Shoot all the engines and the cockpit appears with the name of the ship. Shoot that and good bye ship. I went after the gyges first after I shot down the six fuel planes that aren't targets. I don't know if you need to get those but what the heck? Hope this helps. This level sucks!

I actually love this level it's my favourate. Also you better get used to it if you want to complete CO-OP Mission 2. Same as Catticus said, I always take out the smaller side planes first and leave the main ship for last. I completely ignore Strigon team and always call for allied support to cover me. They instantly go after Strigon team and most of them die pretty quickly. Another tactic that might help you is to try to destroy the Strigon members as they fly from the main ship. They are extremely slow on take off and can't dodge you're missiles if you're firing at them head on.

I never ever waste my missiles on the smaller ships and this is a great way to get the machine-gun medals. Use you're missiles to only attack the AA turrets on the large side planes. Then just slow down and drift from side to side machine gunning the engines. The AA Guns are pretty hard to hit with the missiles. So when I lock on to them I tilt my craft upwards so the missile flies over the ship and hits the turret rather than hitting the main hull of the ship.

Nothing else to say really except try not to stall when slowly shooting at the ships, You could lose control and crash straight into it. Also as you're probably aware, Try not to fly into planes you have shot down as they can cause you're plane to explode.

How do you beat this mission using only bullets? I'm doing it on easy right now and shooting the hell out of the cockpit at the end, but it never says "hit", even when I'm clearly hitting it. Any help would be appreciated.

Beat this on Hard without dying.
Used the F22A Raptor with XAM6 missiles.
Went after the large ships using the SP missiles, then used the allied cover to blast the Strigon jets into oblivion.

I dunno, I just took down the side planes first and then used the allied thing as often as I could, I thought it was a challenge using the first plane which I think is an f14 but was the best all round plane I had at the time, doing my 2nd run and did it well easier this time with a better plane though, can fire 6 missiles or 8 off at once now so a lot quicker

Just take down the side planes first and then its easy from there.

But that's not what I asked. See I thought you meant you did it with machine gun ONLY. This level is EXTREMELY easy, as is any level with missiles. There should be no problems while using missiles. It is the MG only that is giving me a hard time.

use the RCL with SU33. RCL great for a nice spread damage on the ships and engines

The allied attack and cover does that have to be blue before you can use it?

Yeah I hated this mission too...I eventually gave up and gave it back to my buddy and started playing sumthin else that wasn't so frustrating. If I would've kept playing it then i prolly wouldve broken my controller.. or prolly the game.

This works the best. I used the F-22A for this mission and i used the A-10 for the Gun only achievement.

easiest way to beat this level on any difficulty is to immidiately go for the ships on the outside, cfa-44 with admm is your best chance for success if youre not that experienced. once you down a ship your allied assistance bar will fill, move onto the next ship and use the admm to takeout all the engines, then swith to missile for the cockpit. when ever it gets intense with the enemy planes and strigons hold 'down' on the d-pad and all your allies will help. make sure to take out the enemy esm whenever possible. soon the aigion will be left and most of the enemy planes will be down. using admm take out all the aa guns on the aigaion. when the engine targets pop up use allied assistance 'up' on d-pad and take out remaining engines with left over admms. now the cockpit on the aigion should appear as target 'depends on difficulty' this one is tricky as you can only use normal missles or machine gun. you need to be flying towards it from a lower altitude and fire from a tight angle. once thats down youre left with the core ' depends on difficulty'

just fly into it from behind 'after destroying all aa guns' and spam missiles into it.

you should have 18 minutes to spare so theres no real rush.

F22A Raptor and XMA6 missles
Thats what I used, took most the fighters out pretty quick with the xma6 missiles and the ships themselves are easy to take down with regular missles...just lock on fire and fly away from them and repeat till they go down... dont think I got hit at all doing it that way.

But I have only completed the game on easy so far, im sure it wont be so easy on the harder difficulties

I've found that it really helps to press down for your wingman to cover you. Once you've taken down a few of the smaller ships, your Allied attack meter should fill up. Instead of holding up for Allied Attack, hold DOWN for Allied Cover. This will send most of your allies against the Strigon team. Once those guys are off your back, it's much easier to take out the remaining craft.

Use SP weapons that have the multi-target ability. Just line up those shots on the ships and also use allied attack. Allied attack helps you a ton!

This mission is absolutely retarded.

If I put my wingman on attack, he flies around and tells me about how all his missiles are missing. If I put him on cover, he follows me around and tells me how there's a missile incoming.

Absolute incompetence.

He doesn't take out anything when I put him on attack, and he doesn't take out fighters going after me when I put him on cover.

The first time I played this level, I got all the big planes down except the main one, and then managed to fly straight into it. Guess what? There's no check point anywhere, so I got to start all the way over, and sense then, I haven't been able to take out any of the big planes or get any allied support.

Because of stupid AI wingman who's probably got one hand on his joystick and his other on the plane's...

I'm so frustrated.

This game was cool until this stupid level with these unrealistic monster planes which apparently made my otherwise decent wingman absolutely incompetent for this level.
