1. Don't spend range to return to your Airbase if
you've only used a few missles. It sucks to have to beat the little
2. Always use guns to shoot down
fighters, more money is good.
3. When engaging with guns, use the cockpit window
for the gun-sight.
4. When there's a missle coming, hit the afterburners
and dive, that should shake them.
5.Be careful in small spaces-the
manueverability is pathetic.
6. For those of you who have played AFD for DC,
be aware that this gameplay is more realistic.
The Final Assult
For those of you who have already
been blown up, sorry I didn't post this sooner.
Because i'm familar with the DC version, i had to set
up the controls differently, but that's me. I chose the
Warbler (F-25) because my BEE FATTY stalled in the mission and I
bought the farm. The Warbler has 88 msls, stealth
capabilities, and great manueverability/speed/defense/acceleration.
The Epic Battle
When you start out, two stealth
fighters streak by high ahead. Hit the afterburners and follow
the mission line to the first six targets. I'm warning
you-these things are powerful. They look like skyscrapers, but
they have three missle launchers on top. If you go straight on
with them,they will blow about 500-1000 HP off your plane. They are
arranged as follows:
/ F \
This map isn't totally accurate, but
you have alot of targets here. To lose the least HP, start
low, climb the tower, fire, and pull left/right. The last
ground target is on top of the fortress. Don't stop jinxing
until you have a lock, or you're dead. Afterwards, mop up the
remaining fighters. An awesome VMU sequence will come up
(watch it- it's worth it) followed by another black out.
