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.
Cheers for the feedback fella's, i just played it again shot 23 down and still failed, the yellow targets are all ju52's, how many waves are there, it seems the more u shoot down theres twice as many to replace them LOL, gonna have another go now .

You have to concentrate your attacks, on the ones that are closest to the target area. I made that mistake the first time, but then I quickly realized what happened. So don't go for the one's that are far from their target, wait for them to get closer, and while you wait. Blast them with everything you've got.

I was having a rough time with this one.

as soviet ace said, always WEP to your closest transport formation (check on map), u can usually nail one as your fly towards it, then swing round behind the plane at the rear of the formation.
match their speed and use the rudder to spray them left to right. moving to the front as your destroy each one. this way you're not constantly turning the big slow IL2 to get planes that are just behind you.

Thanks for all your help Fella's, done it , the key is to do it quickly as you dont get much time before they reach the airstrip.

Thanks again

You don't need to shoot the fighters down. Tell your wingmen to protect you and then fly to the airfield and drop some bombs.

If he's flying Arcade or Realistic, the main objectives ie Ju-52 Transports are indicated by yellow arrows. They look like this.

Default You can do it!

I know how a lot of people feel about this mission – after several fairly easy missions this one comes along and “BAM”, it’s 10 times harder! I have spoken to many pilots on line and basically it comes down to this - skill, the seasoned pilots get on their targets and take them down rapidly and move onto the next wave of bombers with no screw-ups, the IL 2 that your flying is so slow that if you have to break off and chase down just one run away bomber you will run out of time, you might as well restart and try again – don’t even bother to continue. I am new to flight Sims and it took me a good part of yesterday to beat this mission, good thing I was off for Labor Day! I also read the great advice above from Soviet Ace (Thanks by the way Ace) which helped tremendously. Don’t worry, you’ll get it, just remember it is all about speed and precision…and the bright side of all of this is that when you do finally beat this mission – you will be a better pilot!

Actually I found this mission not that hard. Remember that you have rockets at your disposal and those JU-52s are really big targets
