I can't get past Hornets Nest either. Everytime I think I'm clearing the skies, it then says mission failed - the transports got through.

i hate this hornest nest level, like amost everyone. I cant understand why a developer make this kind of f...uck.g level. I did really like this game, but because of this level, i dont like it anymore, damn. I have tried this level thousands time, without any result on arcade style. i want to play this game, but its all over for me, i guess.

In order to achieve this level, first kill the transport planes. Use your flight crew to your advantage by ordering them to attack the current objective by using the directional pad and pushing it to the right or #3 as in the owner’s manual. Continue to do so until you have killed 30 planes. Make sure even though you shoot an enemy plane and it’s a smoker that the yellow disappears from you radar screen (as a kill) and then move on to the next, continuing to order your flight to attack the main objective. Once you have completed 30 planes in 8 minutes 30 seconds, the game will announce you have completed the mission and give a secondary mission to kill the ground guns. There will be a display to the bottom left showing how many to kill. I believe it will show 8 tanks/guns. Now there will be many targets on the ground that you can shoot, next to the spot lights. Do not do shoot these as it will cause you to fly around forever looking for the targets. Do not kill the planes that are attacking you either. The best thing to do is order your flight to attack the current objective then look on your map and see the blinking yellow points on the map, should show to the top left as a rectangle. That's where your flight (blue dots) will be congregating showing you the area you need to fly to (air field). Once you arrive to the air field you will see the current objective lit up in red with a star/circle above it. Using your missiles take out each one but continue to use the X button to light up the next target on the objective after you kill each. While doing this tell your flight to shield you to prevent being shot down by enemy planes. When you reach zero kills on the bottom left the game will announce that the objective is complete and to now leave the battle zone. Fly to the yellow flag and the mission is over. Takes some work as it took me about 30 try's to figure it out. But now you have the instructions.........go get them. Good luck and happy gaming, T-bone El Paso Texas. ONE TEAM ONE FIGHT!!

Re: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey Tips FAQ Help Tricks Hints Cheat Codes Strategy Gui

I'm stuck on Hornet's Nest as well. I shot everything down until they stopped sending any more transport planes, took out all the ground radar & gun installation, and even spend the time to take out every plane on the ground at the airfield and nothing happened for 30 minutes. When I went looking for new targets, but I kept getting the prompt to return to the battle zone out on the edges of the map. 505 is getting a call from me this afternoon.

Oh, yeah...I dropped the $40 for the Thrustmaster Hotas X stick and the game got 100% better.

I'm also stuck. It sucks to play for 8 1/2 minutes only to get "Mission Failed"...all the other levels seemed pretty simple.

I'm checking the radar every couple of seconds, I'm not leaving planes, what is up?

Thumbs up Re: IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey Tips FAQ Help Tricks Hints Cheat Codes Strategy Gui

Unlike the rude ass who gave absolutely no insight into how he beat the stage I will hopefully shed some light. I, like the rest of you played countless rounds into the 8 minute + range only to be bewildered as to how I failed the stage. First of all you don't need to worry about the crap on the floor. Just put all your energy in knocking off the transit planes. The key is to make sure you actually shot down every plane in each grouping. You will notice the marker for some of the planes that you missed growing faint. This means the planes are trying to land. You need to get down to shoot them before they land. Trust you may think you got every plane in each pattern but chances are you did not if you don't keep close count of how many are in each grouping. Also coming in from the side helps your kill rate. I hope this helps. The next stage is boring by comparison.
