Tip 2a is hard to follow in National park.This valley breaks my stealth and i get chased by 3 quarters of the enemy team. So I can't get to the HQ at all.

"Do a barrel roll!"

Wrong. It's an aileron roll.:facepalm:

Might help if you're using an attack aircraft instead of a Beaufighter.


A bombed enemy HQ in 90 seconds or your credits back.

This is an excellent guide, but I wonder if it is still useful to take out the enemy HQ early in the game, especially after the 1.1 supremacy changes?

 

Sure, you get some slight reduction in overall enemy AA effectiveness. You also get three points added to your own supremacy count.  However, enemy HQ counts as an 80% (thereabouts) supremacy reset.  Wouldn't it be better to damage the HQ, but leave it standing until the latter half of the battle when it can really save (or pile on) the outcome of the battle?

Any tips for eliminating aerial targets? Being pressed into doing so, for example when you and another GA are the only ones left on the team, no ground targets remain and the enemy has superiority, seems to be a rather common occurrence. I wonder if anybody has any tips to share for situations like these.

Your response to situation will depend on the circumstances:

 

1. If you are ahead in Supremacy, and the enemy has no Attack Aircraft remaining. The one of the GA should try to fly away and hide while the other continues attacking ground targets (and ultimately sacrifices himself).

 

2. If you do not have a Supremacy advantage, then you have to stay near each other and shoot enemies off the other's tail as best you can. This does not mean flying round and round in one big circle. Fly straight passes (while dodging and weaving side to side) so your teammate can get his guns on the pursuer. And don't forget to use the bomb kill technique to try and eliminate or shake enemy aircraft that are on your six.

 

Just know, that even executed flawlessly, these suggestions end in failure more often than not, but they can snatch victory from the jaws of defeat on occasion.

Very nice post.  Great information that is concise and to the point really.  The information still works a year later.  If you have information on other types of planes please post it here so that we can read up on them as well.

  1. Don’t get rid of your bombs too early! You may need them to take out enemy fighters on your six. Practice taking out planes that are pursuing you with your bombs!

 

I took out four pursuers on 1/20/15 at 2135 UTC with four bombs from an LBSH!  Winter Map.  We were down 5-2.  I bought the farm before number four bought it (no credit) or would have ACE'd with bombs!

The majority of this guide is outdated.

What has changed? I've been playing this game off and on for a while. Mostly played Tanks, than Warships for a year or so. Looking to get back into Warplanes.

The guide is still pretty relevant. The main thing that has changed is that HQ's don't seem to exist anymore as far as I can tell. There are still "HQ" areas on maps, but destroying them doesn't give you anything special other than the normal supremacy points.
