A lot of games I've seen people bomb the island, but get pwnt by AA. One of the problems is that the Val has such an execrable rate of climb that people never bother trying to get up to cruising altitude (hint: the operative word here is "UP") and actually fly it like a dive bomber, i.e. go HIGH, go OVER your target, and go DOWN. STEEP DOWN.

Instead they do some weird medium-altitude level- or shallow dive-bombing, which never works, Bullwinkle.

Same here, although I am not sure if the AA can see you or not when you are above the clouds I cant remember ever being shot down until after I drop my bombs. Climb all the way to the target, keep an eye on the minimap so you know when to dive, and come in as steep as possible so you have the advantage of speed to dodge the AA and so all your bombs land on target.

After dropping bombs I go as low as possible to avoid AA but I am usually shot down. No problem though because respawning on the ship is almost quicker than flying all the way back to rearm.
