- Banking, with your wings vertical to the ground, is suicidal when an enemy plane is on your tail.
- The P38 is very accurate, try to engage enemy fighters from afar!
- Concentrate on eliminating or discouraging enemy airpower. This will leave the skies open for you to ravage the enemy ground forces.
- If you're damaged and have an enemy on your tail, try dropping a bomb and turn off engines to make it look as though you've bailed out.
- Refrain from destroying anti-aircraft placements. They re-spawn with full health and worse yet, full munitions.
- Encourage your team to spot enemy tanks for you, often they will respond positively and you can encourage more of this behavior with a bomb in the back side of some enemy tanks!
- Aim for and watch for pilot hits/kills, this can quickly take down an enemy plane whilst wasting very little ammunition. Although, you will receive less points for not destroying the enemy aircraft.
- The hull & turret armor is still pertinent to bomb damage, line up your shot; you might just take out a panzer with one hit.
- Approaching enemy anti-aircraft weapons quietly (engines off/slowed), from up high, far away, and directly from the sun (they have to look into the sun to see you), gives you a distinct advantage. A few blips from your machineguns, and you're good to go.
