Special M21 Solo guide

Su-47 with Light engine, Adv actuator, no armor, and ant cockpit attachment u like
Forneus with Hayabusa, Adv b wing, diffusion coat, and ACE amulet

Weapon: STDM, SASM

Tactic: San Francisco UNHARMED. NO RETRIES

Sulejmani: SU-47= Resist urge 2 fap when seeing hentai lap dance. Gun him down to red health, until he says "HAHAHA" don't use SASM's yet. If he does, use SASM, they make for easy kill.


When using XMAA, be sure to gain lots of distance and have a good position and take note of sulejmani's heading (pref, fire on his back).

Fire like this

- = indicates 0.5 second pause
X= indicates firing of XMAA

X - X - - X - X


You can gun him down, but it takes 500+ bullets



Special SP02 Solo Guide.

Aircraft: Forneus with hayabusa, adv b wing, diffusion coat, ACE amulet
Weapon: HACM, XMAA
Tactic: Kill first 3 wave with HACM, save 4 for last ace. Use 4 XMAA in head-on pass


why HACM? STDM in this situation is lousy

I did it with 0% Damage and S-rank :) no kidding



M07/08

Recommended Aircraft

MiG 1.44. With your preferred settings. LASM and LAGM

Terminator. With Mercury Engine and extra ladder. STDM and LASM.

NOTE: Although it is tempting to use salamander/similar things. DON'T

Destroy the tanks BEFORE reaching the 4000M (max range of LASM [3500FT])
Quickly switch targets using the /_\ button or any button that is used for camera lock/ changing targets.

You should have enough long range missiles now. Conserve them.

The part where Paper Wasp gets to pick up the Duck...

YOU NEED TO BE FUCKING QUICK AND VERY SLOW SPEED.

A RANDOM RPG WILL HIT PAPER WASP FORM ONE OF THE NEARBY REFINERY BUILDINGS. IT WILL HIT NO MATTER IF YOU DEPLOYED IRCM/ECMP.

Some people say that the Falken is better. Well IMO I suck at flying the Falken

Stall and LOOP behind paper wasp and take out ALL RPG/AA GUN/SAM in the desert. Don't even rest for 1 second [not kidding]




i don't play JA singleplayer anymore, sorry, it sucks.

i play multiplayer tho, PM me for match schedules

im thinking of SRDM + HACM combination since ammo is an issue here. x-02 is ok but it lacks of one good capability.
Guns. unlike varcolac and fenrirs guns. x-02 has a slow kill on guns. specially on head on pass

Go with the Raptor. Fire 4 XMAAs every round except for the first two, and you have more than enough missiles and guns for the rest.

Just remember: once you destroy the first Tomcats, HIT THE DECK before ZOE starts shoop da whooping.

Just when you take down the last Tomcat of the first wave of them, turn north immediately and hit the afterburners, that way Z.O.E.'s Falken will appear too close of you and you'll be out of its laser range. Or even don't wait for the Tomcat to be downed, just launch the missile (if you have XMAAs or XLAAs you can fire him even further north), forget him and break away heading north

I was wrong about S-ranking in mission 8, although my way was one (high-speed Fenrir), it was too complicated.
TK, you were right when you said the bunch of enemy vehicles targeting Fat Duck "hear you" when you come close. If you come closer than 4000m the enemies say "Located target chopper on ground. Advancing to finish him off", and then they start to shoot. However, if you fire at them with a long-range missile (LASM and LSWM have 5500m of range) without coming closer than 4000m, enemies won't fire at the chopper, and you'll get an S-rank (if you protect him well after that too)


Excelent guide btw

How about mission 19-20 S ranking? :D




I've tried it with 3 other dudes on superplanes and only got an A.

How about mission 19-20 S ranking? :D

One of the most joint assault missions where to get an S-rank, but here go my advices:

- When the Spiridus' FCU appears destroy it immediately, because it will disappear quickly, resulting in a loss of time and dropping from S to A. This is difficult because in that very moment, high-skiled enemy pilots with stealth planes (S-32) appear at your back and it's dificult to get rid of them and avoiding their missiles while not losing aim on the FCU.

- At last phase, when the electrolaser cannon appears, destroy it immediately. If you let the laser takes down one single ally missile, you'll drop to an A. This is also difficult because of the enemy planes going after you. And of course, don't try to get to the ace "Lily", cuz it's in the other edge of the map and by the time you shoot him down, some allied missiles will have been trashed.

You'll get an S-rank if you do this correctly. The hard part is to cooperate with the other players to perform well.

Thanx.

I was in the desert army strike group, but the thing is, there weren't that much noticeable stalling from the other team, and the first launched desert base missle was the one that killed Spiridus. And we still got an A.

Next time I'll try getting in the Spiridus group.
