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....

I hate the existence of this medal......WG, please remove it from the game, lol.  I have to give up trying to get it, as it's ruining the enjoyment of the game.  I-16 isn't tough enough to go it alone against garrisons, and the rockets don't do nearly enough damage.....it would take hundreds of battles to get the 40 kills with rockets.  When you DO get air support, you usually take the garrison before you come back to finish off a softened up target, lol.  Frustrating to say the least :angry:

It seems achievable.  Maybe this is worth me making a tutorial for.

It is definitely a grindy Achievement, to be sure.

 

You've got this! I definitely believe in you!

I'm concentrating mostly on those 4* tent ground targets, getting about 2 per battle I believe, sometimes, up to 4 or so if I get to finish off already damaged targets.

I do wish there was a progress indicator so I could confirm I'm progressing/how far to go.

 

Edit: typo process -> gress :hiding:

Oh, definitely doable, just horribly painful, lol.

Thanks Sonic......how about spotting me half the targets? :hiding:

Yeah, I wish there was a progress indicator as well, that'd be great.....tent ground targets eh?  Mostly I've been going after the groups of what look like buildings at garrisons......eh, that's probably what you mean though.  They aren't buildings, but really long tents.

Target in top right is tents.

There are also tents in the other target areas too.

 

Point being tents die easily and you want to secure a ground target kill with each 4 rocket salvo.

You can shoot 2 rockets into opposite corners of the '4 tents in a square' targets to guarantee the target kill.

Each rocket will do damage to 2 tents, 1 into the middle of each tent may not kill.

Would be nice to have this confirmed, there's no way of finding out in-game if this tactic progresses the mission or if the kill has to be rocket-only ??

Done.

Funny thing my previous 2 battles with this were sucky as heck, I started the battle wondering why I used to enjoy flying this thing, then I saw the achievement flash as I got a target kill & went on to that rather outragously large score...

NICE!!

 

Hallelujah......I'm done too.  Now I just need the 200 fighters, 150 Heavies, etc...so if you see me still flying Tier III?  It's not stat-padding, it's out of necessity, lol.
