I am on stage 5 part 4 of the Vampire missions that requires getting 3 Lambert medals but I have not played that much with multiroles - at least not successfully.

What is your recommendation for planes? I have most MRs up to tier 7 and some higher, like the F7U or the J7W2.

More importantly, what is your recommendation for the strategy? Should I go for ground targets as well or just act like a light fighter and only get capture points from aerial kills?

 

Thanks pilots and see you in the virtual skies!

The best way to get a Lambert Medal is to earn the 400 capture points by attacking the

Heavy Fighter Air Defense Aircraft  ( ADA ) in each Sector then move to the next sector.

Do not worry about the Red Enemy only the Red or White ADA.

If you choose to carry ordnance then just use it on the AA gun emplacements

and do not worry about the larger ground targets.

Your ADA is your best bet.

 

You do get capture points for destroying the Red Enemy ( bot/player ) in captured sectors but it is just easier

doing the shoot and move on the ADA in neutral and contested sectors.

 

Do not engage anything outside the circles.

Just do what you would do when you go for Akamatsu as much of the points are from there but any ground targets you happen to bag will count towards that total unlike Akamatsu.

 

But more importantly, don't get tunnel visioned by the need to get the medals that your performance drop and you end up never getting them.



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.

Dunno about strategy.. But I keep accidentally getting them in my F2g. Seems a good plane for it at least.

... so remember to use those repair stations when you have access to them. and pick your target zones carefully.

Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is very hit or miss. Usually I start on the right track and then a make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ... 
And yet it doesn't stop me from speculation.

I got 2 almost back to back and now it's been about a 3 week drought.  Doesn't help that I have been playing other planes and limited multi-roles.  

 

I cannot remember what I got them on.  I think at least one was the XP-44 but I could be wrong.  I usually carry only bombs on the US multi-roles as the rockets impair maneuverability to a greater extent.  I know in most cases, it's run in, shoot planes, bomb, run out, rinse, repeat.  Kinda takes a frenzy of action and yes, don't get shot down.  

 

Anyway, I am trying to get my 3rd and have had no luck.  Need a token mission that involves multi-roles, otherwise, no dice.

I could be way off base but I don't think ordnance impairs maneuverability any more, just speed.  And the rockets have less impact on speed compared to bombs.

 

I, as always, reserve my old man's right to be wrong.

I will give you the septuagenarian pass on this issue.  (had to look up the spelling, I will admit.  What a spelling bee word, ya know?)

 

When I mount rockets, things go down more than when I mount bombs.  Counter-intuitive, and I will double check, but I think in some cases the rockets carry a greater penalty.  Heck, I am pretty sure in the Corsairs (or maybe it's some heavies), the lighter bombs carry a larger penalty than the heavy bombs.  I could be wrong, but I played around with this a bit some time ago.  

 

Maybe it's all those pylons sticking out into the wind.

what you want me to say? that's how u get Lambert's, only strat u have to focus on is not dying while capping and defending a significant amount. focus more on the things that will kill you rather than ground targets. this isn't big brain stuff. simple survival tactics.

And that, in a nutshell, is the root of my problem.  

 

For some insane reason, I would rather die in a flaming ball of glory going after something I can never get.  I guess that's the difference between a game and your life on the line.  

 

I guess, if I treat every battle as if my life is on the line, I probably would do better.  Gosh, I should probably start flighting up, because then I don't want to let my teammate down.  But my chores would suffer greatly...

 

Such quandaries... maybe I should reevaluate my whole...  Oh look! my mug is now frozen!  Beer Me!

Lamberts are just a thing I get from time to time, I make no effort to specifically try to get them.

 

I would say its easier with a relatively agile, cannon armed mid-tier eg Tornado/F4Us that can out-turn Light ADA.

Probably run it clean (no ordnance) to maximise your anti-air ability, make sure you fight over caps, friendly or enemy doesn't matter as it counts cap points in Defense as well as Attack, I believe doesn't include points while the cap is locked.

As others said stay alive including sprinting clear of caps to repair if you need to (on airfields if available but at least try to keep things up on the auto-repair when you get the chance)

 

High tiers get fast & hard to actually stay over a cap while lower tiers generally aren't that good at air to air.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

It's good to know that someone has stepped up to fill the hole left by the Infinite Braggart.

Pro Tip: Go where the planes that are hard counters to yours are -not-. That means check the map with the alt key obsessively. If you can avoid the hard counters to your plane, you can usually get it. I just did 4 times in a row on the F-94D. 

Side Note: The Vulcan made me say "Oh my giddy aunt" when I shot something with it the first time.

Well thats just too much like hitting the easy button.
Besides as soon as you burn tokens to bypass a requirement for an unusual medal that weeks of playing left you with nothing
... that's when you win the medal without even trying while failing to get the next requirement .
