Bomber flights do NOT count toward the bomber or attack aircraft kill requirement.  Damn it.  

 

Just had a mission where i killed 12 bombers from bomber flights and got no credit for the kills. it has to be enemy player team bots or enemy players for it to count.

But a truce to this mournful story

For death is a distant friend

So here's to a life of glory

ayup, Ran into that myself but the J7 proved very good at the task (Fw 190D so so) except I'll have to go back and try to do more of them in victories for the additional task.

gawd, did doing THAT prove to be a huge mistake.

 

Like everyone else I've had bad days with this title, but offhand I can't think of a worse example.

My understanding of this mission is to take out Bombers or GA from the enemy team.  Destroy 30, and Destroy 50 and win.  I don't see this as hard, although it may  take some time to farm bombers and GA in winning conditions.  If you are focusing on winning the battle you should still be able to farm a few per battle.  So, I's say between 15 - 20 battles as a conservative guess.

 

Mission 11 took me 19 battles to complete.  Not hard, just a bit of a grind.  Over 3 weekends of attrition, these should be achievable.  Probably less if you are in a flight, that way your partner can concentrate on the win, and you can farm the mission.

it’s not hard, per se, but when you add in the winning conditions requirement it makes it far harder than part 1.  I won’t claim for sure, but it seemed like if I did too well killing bombers and attack aircraft to complete that mission my team lost resources at a faster pace.  It also seems like there was a bonus on killing fighters and heavy fighters, while bombers, multirole fighters and attack aircraft were worth only -1 resouces to the enemy team.

Due to the requirement for winning, you need to focus on winning the battle, not farming Bombers of GA.  So, secure the win and be happy with whatever you get in terms of mission progress, like 2 or 3 planes per battle.  Focusing on Bombers and GA leaves the win up to your team, which in a lot of cases will end in a loss.  You either win a lot, and take longer to complete the missions, or you get a lot of kills, but risk losing, in which case you have to play more.  There is no quick way to complete this mission.

 

Personally, if the mission isn't being completed quickly, I would rather be winning than losing.  This is why being in a flight for this mission is a huge help as at least 1 other person on your team is focused on the win, and can also keep you aware of the battle and let you know when to start farming and help with securing the win.

I decided to hunt them first in my VB10.  It was kinda working but then I got the bright idea to just use my 40P.  

 

Here is what you do.  you go to the farthest zone from your spawn.  Usually its that Stockade fortification one... whatever they call it (the one that looks like blocks.)  Anyway go there and kill them and then head toward their spawn and kill them because these bots are not smart and are very determined to ground pound there.  so they keep training toward you to die.  This was a super easy one when you do it like that.

 

Ergo, by doing so you will remove their whole ground invasion force which is enough to help your team maintain the majority of the zones and therefore secure victory.

That’s exactly how I got my last 10 or so.  It was the only type of plane I hadn’t tried.
