I normally beat the yellow with the F-15ACTIVE, but the SU-37,F-22 and the S-37A are fine too or even better...

It's actually fun. You get gun kills much easier in the Phantom.

I actually dropped them pretty quick in the last mission using my F-22 (my usual plane) but I'll test the others and see which is the best for taking them out.


For now, I'd say something with QAAMs (which I rarely use) if you want to have them on the run (or just totally shoot them down if they don't manage to evade it) and something with excellent maneuverability so that you have the upper hand when chasing them down.

I say give 'em a taste of their own meds. Su-37

I did beat the Yellows with an F-4 at Megalith on Ace. I'd rather use that too.

The obvious one (that isn't on the list above) is the X-02. The best maneuverability to keep up with the unrealistic flying of the Yellows.

The S-37A definetly because of its QAAMs. Those things kick ass!

Yes with the Raptor with the XMAA you get 4 targets, it's the fastest way I know

Speak for yourself those QAAM are just a cheap way to beat the game it maybe quick but it takes the fun out of dogfighting your opponents.

The Typhoon is a good plane with the XLAAs, but they aren't as good in AC4.

Im an F-22 fanatic. beat entire game on every difficulty using jsut the F-22. I prefere the F-22 but the SU-37 is also pretty good.

I'd go with the F-22A Raptor any day. But I took them on at Stonehenge with their own plane, and I have to say that it was fun. I had 4 of the 5 Yellows trailing QAAMs at one time, and then one exploded by it. So IMO, F-22 (first choice) or Su-37 (second choice).

No way, I 100% agree with you there. It's also annoying in multiplayer when someone uses one against you. My trick is to speed up as much as possible, keep turning to a minimum (unless you really have to), and if you're playing on Gnome Ravine, use the terrain mask. It works.

I like using the Su-37 because of its mobility, speed, and weaponry.

The best five planes for anything are the SU-37, SU-47 (S-37A) , F-15S-/MTD (ACTIVE), the SU-35 and the good old F-22. For a challenge though use an A-10, trust me it's fun

That's what I used the first time I faced them. Certainly is a challenge, but I succeeded on the first try. Unfortunately, a missile connected in the process (I was on Normal, so I took little damage).

I'd say any agile and fast fighter (with an adequant amount of missiles obviously), still I once took them all down in an F-5

Don't you know one of the ways to fight fires is to burn something before the actual fire gets to it so the fire has nothing to burn? B)


Very true, because if you burn it first on purpose, you have a chance of controlling the fire (maybe). Fighting fire with dynamite is better, though, because then the fuel is so scattered, it's hard to keep it going.
