You have to be real sneaky to hit a tank with an airstrike

I hit rank 160 yesterday, have never called in an airstrike, never called mercs, never placed a bounty except once on a friend who was in a glitch and wanted people to come after him.  Never called for heli backup.  I guess I just handle things myself,

I used a back up chopper once just to see how it would help. Didn't do much except like someone else said, distract others.

Oh... Btw

About the only use for it is getting rid of rooftop campers after you get in their blindspot. But frankly it cost 1/5th as much and it'd still be a waste of money most of the time.

 

Waste of Adder insurance money. You can only throw it like 3 feet and takes forever to come, the person will notice it before the jet even gets there.

Oh I see what the masses really want. BRB, making a "Boy the mechanic is really terrible" thread.

I see you've noticed my brilliantly subtle joke. Ah yes. That's definitely what happened there.

Just noticed that too, quite a good name :D

 

 

With rooftop campers, wouldn't a combination of backup, off radar and a distraction by text get you a better result than a sh*tty airstrike?

Search the place out to see if there's more than one ladder, they'll be watching it.

How its against tanks? does it kill a tank in one airstrike if its hits directly? 
 
i give you the answer in a while, i will put my tank out and try throw a flare on it.. and beside it..


You posted your positive results but you can easily move out of the area of effect before the strike is delivered.

I let my buddy throw a flare on my stationary tank and the bombs fell everywhere around but not on my tank. Not one hit.

Airstrikes leave a lot to be desired.

I threw an airstrike against an enemy tank, not a single hit, the dirt didn't even touch the tank. it took too long to come and a pillar of red smoke isn't exactly subtle lol.

I only got it to work once. A couple of guys had me and a buddy of mine holed up on a small two story parking garage on the NE side of the city. One in a tank, and the other in an entity. I threw the flare over the top of the tank below us. The guy in the entity took off. I guess the guy in the tank didn't see the flare cause he didn't move. The first bomb that fell was a direct hit.

imagine if it were a laser pointer with quicker delivery "with the cooldown intact", like a laser pointer in a box with a parachute lands-and instead of a warning flare, it were an airstrike.

The Airstrike is only good for co-ops.  It's horrible in pvp.  They should change it to where you can be anywhere and just mark a spot on the map to be bombed.

For 11k, it should at least come with a blowjob.

I don't use air strike... and the only time I use any of merryweather services is on solo survival, for the heli support.

3 Tier Airstrikes would be amazing...

 

Tier 1: Electronically mark a visible location through binoculars / sniper dart, and then the airstrikes will go to the area marked.

 

Tier 2: Waypoint style map picked location.

 

Tier 3: Army response in the form of a fighter jet that shoots to kill.
