Top Gun - Hornet's Nest
When flying a mission that doesn't have a time limit,
periodically return to your home air base or carrier
to repair damage and reload weapons. Both are rarely
more than a few minutes away, and this can be the key
to surviving and completing many of the game's tougher
The game will allow you to lock up ground targets with
air-to-air missiles and vice versa, so feel free to
improvise with whatever you've got the most of.
The best way to spoof incoming missiles is to dial your
radar down to its minimum range so that you can see its
inbound red icon more closely; then yank and bank abruptly
just before a missile hits while pumping out plenty of
chaff and flares (or better yet, turn on auto chaff/
flares at the options menu).
