I'm not a CNC guru, but this is what I have learned from expirence.

VS ground units, especially horders, the Chinese MiG firestorm is very effective. However air to air, or if you just have one unit as the target, I would say your best bet would be the US raptors would be best.

If you are the US, however, and can't get MiGs, your best defending air unit would be the raptor (unless they have a large ammount of AA units in their attacking force, then go stealth (unless they have stealth detection in their attacking force, in that case air defense is very ineffective)

The stealth fighters are not all to good, but can be "ok" if used properly in the right situation. If you have to bomb a key target, i.e. an enemy building, like a nuke silo, you will want Aura bombers. Just fly them straight over the enemy base defense on the way there (since they are immune to attack on their way to the target) and redirect them out their back door using a series of way points.

The commanchi (I murdered that word) are good under certain conditions too, but if the enemy has pratically any anti air on or around your target, the commanchi are pretty much useless considering they will go down in a few shots.

Thats pretty much it, and is what I have picked up from my time playing.

Brigadier Gen. Sorry man, tried that, didn't even work against just 4 stinger sites, although I just gave them a "GUARD" order/command. they where firing in different directions, it's as if they where firing at thier own kind, it really pissed me off cuz the time it took to build all of them was nothing compared to the time they went "EJECT,EJECT!!!"

you just have to know how to control them for the best effect. and as always it helps to have backup incase there are enemy installations. 8 raptors should be enough for most things.

Personally, Im all for using Stealth Comanche's for ground defense (I ONLY play as USAF, I've a thing for planes), and I rely on MD's and Patriots for air defense. For attacks I use Aurora's for raids and KR for nonAA vehicles.

True Gats and Quads can ravage an airforce... but using 16 Auroras to hit a base all at once can be pretty effective, and nothing to say of a full 8 wings attack force of Auroras!

EDIT: On a quick side note, in most instances as the USAF, relying on base defenses like your Fire Bases and patriots, and defensive units like Avengers, while using Comanches to clean up long trains of vehicles without AA capabilites.

Raptors are decent, but to me they are mostly an anomoly, and Stealth Fighters are just too funny to leave out a wing of.

note from your neighbourhood mod dont double post.:nodding:

Migs - for targeting infantries, they'll burn up even even though they're not in hell yet. Raptors - for defending your base, just four of they're missiles is enough to turn any tanks into scrap metal, except overlords ofcourse, and those promoted three times. Aurora Bombers - for quick destruction of whatever structure you desire. Stealth Bomber - they're lousy when destroying tanks and structures, but you'll be amazed how good they are againts the second best defensive structure,Patriot missile.

stealths kick arse against base defenses, just upgrade them with laser guided missiles and bunkerbusters and no defense will stand against them, it's also funny to use bunkerbuster missiles on stationary infantry units, watch them fly:D

Stealths are so frickin annoying when I play against the U.S. I love being China so it's sorta annoying unless I get a big defense to stop them before they reach me which is sorta hard to do at times against some enemies.

They're also very good at taking out stinger sites. Once a fire storm starts, it burns away the GLA hole that gets left over. Gotta make sure you have the black napalm upgrade.
