So I was looking through the Achievements part of the ingame Profile, noticed I don't have this yet.

Thing is look at the requirements there.

Destroy ground targets with T3 or lower.

Unless I'm missing something this can only be completed with I-16 early as its the only T3 or lower plane with rockets.

Both the I-5 and the I-15 have them as well, but only have two RS-82s.

 'doh, missed that lol

But yeah with only 2 thats going to be even harder to get ground targets than with the 4 of I-16 early...

got my first a2a rocket kill in 2.0 yesterday, but it was a bot flight of bombers 

 

i just don't press the button at the correct time when shooting them at humans, so i've taken them off on everything but the 2nd hurricane and the brand new 410

 

and except soviet GAAs, because that's just pure fun

Yep, it sucks because the rockets don't do diddly for damage.

Reminds me I need to actually re-buy the I-16 e. to complete this...

I guess shooting up tents, particularly the 4 tent squares should get it done reasonably quick.

Do you have to destroy the whole target with rockets or can you soften it up with guns and then finish it off with a rocket ??

There's no way to track progress on this 'mission' and see if this works ...

I presume its the final hit that counts.

But I-16e only has 2* 7.62 & 2* 12.7mm, not exactly gonna do huge amounts of softening up.

 

I've re-bought it along with a new pilot.

Ugh been a while since I've done that, first battle was not pleasant :facepalm:

2nd battle was just short of 19k points though lol so that completed the 10% training and gave me the 1st skill point, 34k free xp gives me 4 points :) tempted to bump it up to 6, I've still got 250k.

 

So the 4 rockets does seem to be enough to be fairly useful: 3 kills a ship, there are a bunch of ground targets at this tier with 4 medium buildings & they die to a rocket salvo.

Gonna try running DE on the pilot to maximise the damage anyway.

Hmmmm, maybe if I take my I-5 out and blow up tent cities mostly with guns, then come back and finish the deal with a rocket...

 

That would take a few games, and might look suspiciously like seal-clubbing....
