Hornets Nest Mission

So I have literally tried this mission 20 times. Everytime it fails saying a transport has reached the destination. I am sure I have downed EVERY plane coming my way, I check the tactical map and make sure there arent any yellow dots that have gotten by me, and I've hit every wing of transports and taken them all out with assistance of my Wingmen, yet it says they reached their destination.. Is there a secret flight that isn't showing up on the map that's getting by or something because it's starting to get annoying because I would like to finish this game off. I generally fly on Realistic or Simulator, but I downgraded for Arcade for this mission since I was having such a hard time trying to finish it and that didnt make a bit of difference.. Any input would be appreciated.

I got through it...

you just have to be quick about it, be sure to END/Page Down for each new group that appears and try to engage them as far away from the circle of red squares on the ground.

as a tip... once they start to turn instead of flying in a straight line, your getting pretty close to where they are going to drop their supplies and if any single transport drops it's supplies you lose.

I was having fun until I got to this mission. It is really annoying to not even get half way through the game and then face a mission that seems based more on luck than anything else.

If anyone is still stuck on this level, its much easier on realistic than on arcade because for some reason there are MUCH fewer planes to shoot down.

But you don't have to change to full realistic mode, use custom difficulty then change only 1 or 2 of the settings until the game rates what you have chosen as equivalent to realistic.

I changed the damage control only - which made it slightly more tricky to get the bombers to go down, but meant I could still fly like in arcade mode (very useful as I don't have a joystick, even arcade mode is tricky flying just by keyboard!)

Hi gents

Took me literally 20 times to complete this mission(i counted).
What i did was i flew level and <0.50km behind the enemy with 52% on the throttle, depending on what speed they are going, try to match it.
Shoot down the last plane and attack the 3rd, 2nd, and 1st one in order.
Then you move on to the other column.

Don't forget your gun has range. Best being 0.45KM and below.

Had the same problem. Sucks to hit a brick wall half way through the campaign. I noticed that sometimes I see a red triangle and it won't let me target it. I think that's the transport dropping supplies.

Really frustrating.

The campaign's learning curve progresses quite well up to this point. It's a shame as it kinda spoils the enjoyment of the game.

Anybody have a post-Hornet's Nest save game they can upload?

Yes, this level is a good example of the developers not even playing their own game. It's an absurd level. Got stuck on it and it basically ruined the game for me. Haven't relaunched single player since...

Thumbs down

This ruined the game practically in it's entirety. All previous missions were fun and moderately difficult but it went from arcade fun to stupid impossible.
