Recently I have been playing the IL-2 ( mod ) as a hunter killer tier V aircraft. I did away with the bomb rack to improve performance and rely on rockets.
Interestingly enough this somewhat works well for this Attack Plane. After playing Pacific map and National Park maps for some time they have become somewhat predictable in where the enemy attack aircraft will approach to get HQ. This is why I decided to dismount the bomb rack. With this planes improved performance you can basically wait or somewhat hunt the enemy attackers and take them out with guns or rockets. Destroying enemy HQ of course is key to winning but so is base defense. I have not perfect my rocket skill yet but am improving as well as working at improving this tactic. So far it seems to work well in some games to achieve 1 to 3 kills. Hanging close and circling low at HQ gives you the advantage of surprise on the incoming enemy. Most games it is a toss up between who gets the HQ kill and ordinance sometimes gets wasted in the race. This way you kill any attackers coming in and if you have rockets left then go for the ground targets or even a few fighters that may try to pop up. Remember however to stay low and use terrain to your advantage.

It is a decent aircraft and lots of fun BUT... it needs to do some GA. That's what it's for.
I once had 6 of these guys in one flight. They killed ONE GA and got 2 Air kills.
We lost.
Oh and I fixed the neg rep.

HQ isn't so important as maintaining supremacy. It's NEVER worth the 3 points, just to rush in and die for them. that's +3 to you if you make it, but +1--3 for them who kill our rushing GAs.

There's plenty of GT with which to increase supreme, without ever having to rush the enemy base.

The problem Skywolf, is that few fighters are willing to protect the GAs. I've shot fighters off many fighters' tails ( sometime I get kills often I just get them to target me instead.)  I've seldom had a fighter return the favor. I really get tired of getting shot down and then finding fighters in other parts of the battlefield attacking ground targets and getting damaged by flak until one by one the enemy picks them off.

Peel the Onion, hit AA first sweep then loop around and take the soft stuff out your fighters have not finished. You can damage soft targets but watch the gun heat. Only bomb AA. Each map offers a different problem which also depends on your start point. By Clearing AA you improve your fighters manuver area. Killing GA on the way in helps keep your AA up and running. Just a good solid burst and keep going main point is to draw your fighters along behind you keeping the defensive air off you.
