To hit a target with a missile, it needs to be caught in the visor and should stay in sight until the impact. Do not forget to lower the undercarriage after the speed has fallen below 280 knots! To reach this, you should bring some free time, though, depending on the difficulty grade a complete party can last well a few hours. As soon as the altimeter starts moving, retract the undercarriage, as the plane will explode with extended undercarriage at a speed of 280 knots! When you have adjusted everything to your taste you only have to choose one of four missile loadings before the takeoff, which are more or less useful against certain types of targets: Additionally to the chosen missile load, there are also always 30 flares for defence of hostile missiles and 6.000 shots ammunition for the cannons loaded, which can destroy every type of target, if you aim well and keep shooting for long enough.
