How to Destroy Stonehenge Cannons Without Taking Out Jammers

This is how u do it. when u start the mission drop below 2k feet unless u want to risk getting killed. when u get to the guns just pop 2 missiles while u flying toward the rear half of the Stonehenge cannon (the rear part of the cannon the one thats easiest to hit without jammer) and fire ur guns also. Do it right and the cannon will be taken out. Repeat process. Also if u got a plane equipped with Large Bombs just drop one on the cannon.

Level 18 hint

When you are flying your aircraft down the corridors on megalith, it's easier to have the view of the outside of your aircraft and reduce your speed to the second line of your speedometer, and to add shoot down all the aircraft on the level because you get much more points and you have all the time in the world!

More Special Planes

If you can, get a plane with QAAMs.

Once on "SHATTERED SKIES", fly over the rocket. there is a road to your right that goes to several islands. Follow it & goas fast as you can. Once you pass over the closest island, wait 3 seconds, then go in to a 85 degree climb. Level off at 30,000 ft. Continue flying, & when you level off,stall. you should be above & behind, in complete advantage. Shoot him down w/regular missiles. Go back to the main isle,& engage the Yellows. Shoot them w/QAAMs.Once one is hit, they all run. Go to 10,000 ft, & shoot down the AWACS{GUNS} anddecend to 8,000 ft, shoot down the MiG, then shoot down the KC-10{GUNS}. continue to dogfight. When the B-2s come, use up your missles(wisley), then RTB.once back ,quicky destroy the bombers,& then shoot down as many fighters as you can. Try to shoot down at least 2 of all aircraft. that way you get their planes(usually).Dont forget you have 20 seconds after the launch, so dont just stop at the launch. As long as you are unfortunately directly over the rocket, you'll be ok.Dont forget, Blue on Blue & air collisions are a factor, so dont do no "scissors" or victory rolls during the game.

Extra points

How to get an extra 200 points in level 8! To get these points you must have at least two missiles and a fairly fast airplane. During your mission breif when your in the cockpit you should see a small arrow in the top right hand corner of your screen. As soon as you gain control of your aircraft accelerate as fast as you can and follow the arrow. ( It may disappear but continue to fly in that direction). On your radar in will be a fast moving dot heading toward the incoming "Yellows." If you shoot it down you will get 200 points for it. It is called something like an "SR-71" but im not sure what it is.

How to beat Megalith (last level)

Engage the fighters if you want but I fly high (20,000+feet) so they don't engage me anyways when you get to megalith you can fly north and destroy the levels ace if you're normal difficulty or higher, when you're in front of megalith descend like you would if there was a Stonehenge attack fly into the left tunnel don't crash but look to your left and after a little bit and the tunnel will split into two tuunels follow the left tunnel and you'll get a lock on a generator the end of the tunnel is small so you have to be good to get out after that go in front of megalith again and take the right tunnel. this one's pretty easy discluding the fact that your flying below 100feet after a while the tunnel will rise BE SURE THE TUNNEL RISES BEFORE YOU DO OR YOU WILL SMASH INTO THE CEILING!!!!!!!! the generator is right in front of you so blow it up. once you get out turn left and fly until the little green lines that mark megalith entrance paths disappear. then turn left 18!
0 degrees when they appear fly on the entrance path you will see a valley below you fly into it the generator will be in front of you on the left. blow it up fly out of the valley once you've destroyed the 3rd generator the ground people will open one door fly in front of mega lith and head for the middle. there will be one tunnel fly into it and there will be a giant missile when you enter the room doors above the missile will slowly open destroy the missile and fly out of the opening doors, if you make it there will be a special cut scene and you will unlock 3 new multiplayer levels an a screen where you can play songs from the game and where you can watch the cartoon cut scenes and some other options on the main menu.

How to beat first level

At the beginning you are behind a group of aircrafts. Do not shoot them it is a waste of bullets. Let them be they will soon be out of site. You will have to move (never put it on auto pilot you will go in the same way as you started.) Just find the other air crafts do not use bullets just your missiles (you have pratily unlimited bullets are not.)If you run out of missiles it's ok just get more by using auto pilot you will get to an air craft carer. Fly to it and land you will get to fly off you will have ALMOST ALMOST unlimited missile and bullets. Take off and beat the mission.

Best way to shoot down Yellow squadron

In most levels there is yellow squadron engagements. The best way to shoot one down is to get right on it's tail about 200ft.or less away from it. Then either use your guns to damage it a little first and then shoot 2-4 missiles at it or jut shoot it with he missiles. The key is to wait till it is moving in forward motion though not when it is doing loops or becoming inverted. The best plains to use for these missions are the SU-37, F-14, F-22, or S-37 and the most advanced missiles for each.

WHEN you start this level you are heading towards the battle closest to the left boundry line. Also when you start you are in the first line of boxes going from left to right.Stay in that line of boxes and climb to an altitude of 20000 ft.Travel to the last box in the first row on the left and when you get a quarter of the way through you will see a dark orange dot or triangle appear at th e boundry line.The name of the plane is SR-71 but in real life it is called the SR-71 BLACKBIRD.It is worth 200 points if you shoot it down.

To beat level 6

To beat level 6 you must go directly to the power plant with out involvement with other plains) and don't destroy anything except 4 the things that have a red "tgt" over it. go strait to the back first and destroy the two in the back first then do the one you saw first near the crevice. that way when the mission update comes to fly in the crevices you will make it two them faster.

All aircraft

Use the following steps to unlock all aircraft, including special colors. First, acquire an aircraft by destroying it in battle. You can acquire three different paint schemes for each aircraft. Two of the paint schemes can be acquired by destroying that color aircraft in battle. To acquire the special brightly colored third aircraft, you must find and kill the pilot flying it. On each level of the game there is a single hidden aircraft (eighteen total hidden aircraft). Each one of these aircraft has a specific pilot. When you see the aircraft in front of you and lock on, it will display the pilot's name next to the aircraft name and lock on square. For example, "S-37A SMIRNOVA". The hidden aircraft will not show up on radar until you get nearby. On radar, the aircraft will be marked with a red triangle instead of yellow. Each hidden aircraft is always in the same place on their specific level. This is always in an empty spot on the map away from the main combat zone!
. The aircraft can usually be found directly behind the main combat zone. Last but not least are the three remaining aircraft. To acquire the Yellow Squadron fighter (SU-37) of your nemesis Yellow-13, you must kill all of the pilots with names flying the special colored aircraft (eighteen total). The method used to unlock the F-4E with tiger stripes is unknown at this time. To unlock the X-02 Stealth, get an "S" rank on all 18 missions on normal mode
