Description[]

The ‘Owl’ is a rather heavy American observation aircraft. It is armed with both forward and rear facing machine guns for defense. If manned by a skilled two man crew it can pose a real threat to more advanced enemy fighters.

Tips

  • AP rounds are an upgrade to factory.
  • HE isn't worth the cost on the owl.
  • Look for jeeps to bomb as they can score lots of points.
  • If fighting a Head To Head Aim Above the Engine block sometimes it can kill the Pilot.
  • When bombing put the target just in front of the nose in FPV for a rough guide.
