Usually I just fly low near the ground, keep my eyes around the sky, and if I see a formation, I usually go for it. And also, you can just order your wingmen to attack the main objective ie Ju-52s, and they'll go after them easy. They shouldn't be hard to spot in the moon light, if your lower then they are.

Hello Fella's, just got the game yesterday and have read through the post's above, enjoying it but am struggling with this mission, the best i have done is shot down 22 planes and then the fail mission message comes up after about 8mins 20secs ish. How many transports are there to shoot down?

I have used my wingmen to intercept but they are useless (they seem to take forever to get a kill).

Any info is much appreciated

There's only about 10 to 12 Transport planes to shoot down.

LOL - I am a complete nOOb to this genre and have been playing it on arcade (PS3 system). I didnt realise there was only 10 to 12 transports, if i am shooting down 22 planes then i assume there are two or more different types of plane in this mission??

Sorry for being a nOOb LOL

First Off, nobody should feel the need to apologize for being a noob.
It just means newbie,but on the wonderful world of the internet it's almost a cuss word!

We all have to start somewhere,don't we?

I'm on the same mission right now and having a fairly difficult time with it, (yes,i too play on arcade!) The wingmen are quite useless indeed, they take so long to make a kill,that i just keep ordering them,because i keep thinking my order didn't register..but,hey any and all help should be used,so i use them as much as possible!

Mostly the bomber squads (slower planes) and transport planes are being escorted by fighters.So,yeah you should check if there are any fighters, i can't remember if they are escorted in this particular mission..but the transports are easy to recognize since they always fly in squads. and have a yellow nametag or sign or whatever it's called. just check the names on the planes,watch for clusters and firewall them. the IL-2 also sports rockets,and while it's fairly hard to get a hit with them,when lined up perfectly,it's definetly possible to hit the transports with it (i managed to take out an entire squad with three rockets and a firewall ! Just spam the rocket button while you firewall with machineguns and ignore the groundtargets. I almost made it,but one squad keeps getting away!

Yeah, no need to apologize!

The reason I asked was that I have beat that mission and I am also playing at arcade level.

I had no problem beating this level. I never gave any commands and just shot down as many as I could and my men got the rest.
