A-10 Tank Killer 2 - Silent Thunder
Fly The Training Mission
In training no one shoots at you, and you get the
opportunity to attack a variety of targets. It's a
good chance to hone your weapons skills. You can also
create a custom loadout and test the effectiveness of
different weapons in a safe environment.
Learn Your Weapons
Different weapons have different advantages. If all
you ever use are Mavericks and Sidewinders, you'll
be missing half of the fun.
SAM radar can't pick you up through hills or mountains.
The lower you fly, the closer they must be to detect you
and the shorter time they have to fire.
When making an attack on a target, select your ordnance in
advance; you may not have time when the fur is flying.
Use your Avenger for those quick shots in order to avoid
having to change selected weapons.
Sometimes, Slow Is Good
Slowing down over a target may seem like asking for
trouble, but sometimes going a bit slower may let you
hit all of your targets in one pass and avoid the need to
fly back over the target, actually lowering the time you
spend in the enemy's sights.
Don't Be Ashamed To Run
Helicopters are more maneuverable than you, but slower.
Dashing away can sometimes allow you to reposition and bring
Sidewinders to bear without getting blown out of the sky.
