Birds of Steel

Birds of Steel Achievements


Destroy 3 enemy bombers in each wave on Realistic difficulty in the "First Carrier Fleet" mission.  

A quick aside, it has been confirmed for some people that the achievement unlocks after the 2nd wave of bombers, so you may luck out and get it early. We will be using FailedSeppuku's pictures again to bend the rules in order to make this easier:

Thanks to FailedSeppuku for the pictures.

Now let's do the walkthrough:

  1. Obviously we need to take off.
  2. -Note- Best way to shoot down bombers is from below shooting up as they won't be able to hit you. But as you may know, (if you've played the mission before), at the start of each wave you generally start parallel or above the bombers meaning you will need to shift to a lower level. Throughout the waves you must protect the four (4) ships from being destroyed. Always keep this in mind.
  3. Wave 1 has 15 dive bombers. Start out by killing one and circling behind the group and come at them from behind. This wave you should have no problem racking up 6-8 kills as they are bunched together in such a way that sweeping runs will ruin their ranks, let alone the fact that the flank guns on the ships decimate them.
  4. Wave 2 has 15 torpedo bombers and is easily the hardest to get the kills on. It's advised that you have a full cannon ready to go for this wave. Aim yourself toward the back of the pack and begin to let the cannons rip working your way behind the pack. Once you are out of cannons simply swap planes, don't waste time trying to gun them down.
  5. Wave 3 has 15 dive bombers and 12 torpedo bombers. With so many targets you simply have to kill three (3) so go straight for the dive bombers which are on the same level as you. Right when you hit that third kill the achievement will pop.
