Tips and Usage (Image Credits eXputer)
  • It’s recommended to use Red Top missiles instead of Firestreak, as they have a comparatively much higher top speed and warhead.
  • It is best to attack enemies from the side instead of confronting them head-on, as Red Tops have a much higher chance of hitting the enemies from the side.
  • Only engage in dogfights against other jet fighters only if you have allies covering you from behind.
  • Otherwise, it is best to remain on the sidelines and target those jets that have lost their speed and are not expecting a sudden attack.
  • Be cautious of all MiG 15s and 17s and A-4E Early, as they have the ability to outmaneuver your jet and render your missiles useless, respectively.
