Has anyone figured out the way to destroy nearly all the 8492 squadron on the mission "8492"? I have figured out a way it its freaking awesome! What is your strategy to defeat all the planes(including the E-767 jammers) in ACE mode and without using the Falken

use some XMAA/XLAA plane, it have to be highly movil, good speed and defense (defense doesn't matter, cuz is Ace modePosted Image), and FIRST destroy the jammers, after you can destroy the other planes

Skills, that's it. This is just another dogfight, with you being severely outnumbered and outgunned, hit and run would be the best strategy you can use, as for the E-747s, just keep cycling through the targets until you find them, going to a high altitude would make it easier.

@Chopper: SAAMs would be a better choice, since you're trying to stay away from them.

Well, before you get too excited, you might want to hit up YouTube and check out their videos of "8492".

Kinda make sure this wasn't done, like, 6 years ago? :huh:

My strategy in the mission is this:

1. (Like what Choper15 said): Go with a XMAA / XLAA plane. My choice, F-22A Raptor.

2. When the mission really begins: Go low and into the mountain's when the long range missles are being fired at you. They will explode when they hit the mountains. :P

3. Fire the first round of 4 XMAA's / XLAA's at the planes. Make sure one is going to the E-767 Jammer.

4. From their, stay a bit high in altitude, have a high speed going, and then just dogfight.

5. Try to avoid any head on attacks. If you come to this, fire your missile and pull up fast right as you lock on.

6. DO NOT IGORE MISSILE WARNINGS!!! Weave off the missile.

7. If you have planes on your tail, dive into and fly between the mountain's. You will lose them. ;)

The mission "8492" is beatable. I got a score of 33,440 in Ace Mode. I didn't use the Falken.

Cool, but you know that this thread is dead, and now, I use a plane with QAAMs, at least for the jammers, and win 2 times

^Hilarious.

I just tried the mission in the F-117A because I figured it would be the worst possible plane for the job. I was wrong. It only took me two tries to take them all down on Ace difficulty. I must admit, it is surprisingly maneuverable and quick to respond. I actually managed to slowly out turn the planes on my tail.

Don't you mean AC5?
Also, he's probably talking about the Su-47s that intercept you. They could easily be mistaken for Ofnir.

He said that because in ACZ mission 10, you engage at an Ofnir F-15S/MTD.
