I swear to the lords of sky combat I am a potato!!

Okay, so, assault fighter. I have figured out i can slow down and shoot the ever loving heck out of an enemy base. I destroyed dozens and dozens of things last match, but the after action report said "Ground targets destroyed - 7"  Why only 7? What am I missing here?


Also, heavy fighters. If one can't get into turning combat, What is the best way to play it, and how the heck do you get someone off your tail? The tail gunner seems useless.

Any help is appreciated, Happy hunting out there.

You have to destroy every section of a Ground Target for it to count as 1.  1 GT can be made up of several sections, especially the HQ.

 

I haven't figured out Heavy FIghters yet.

Oh lord.. so all the targets within the walled area.. I SEE.. Thank you Mars

While we're at it.. Any tips on bombing? I know there's a white circle on the ground, and Ive been dropping my payload when the circle is over the area, but it seems hit or miss. Any suggestions?

Generally heavy fighters are faster than other aircraft, almost always in a dive. Therefore, the best way to survive is a diving pass, also known as boom and zoom. Dive in at speed, shoot, than pull away. Once you're safe, regain altitude.

Drop your bombs when the circle is orange...in HF it happens in mere seconds because you are flying so fast unless you are divebombing from pretty high up. Dive bombing makes said circle smaller, increasing your accuracy.

 

While speed become almost meaningless in 2.0...sometimes that old trick can work. Just boost away in straight line.



WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.
