  • Try dive-bombing enemy tanks; fly straight down at them and drop bombs, you will almost certainly get a kill and points for armour damage, tank destruction and bomb action.
  • The BF 109 is smaller than the P38 Lightning, Use this to your advantage!
  • The 109s main 20 mm Cannons are mounted on the wings, while its Soviet and American counterparts mount their cannon(s) on the nose. The wing-mounted cannons are good for killing the P38 and C-47, but weaker against a turning opponent.
  • The Yakovlev Yak-9B Is smaller than the lightning, Try to shoot him when he's banking/turning-He also only has 1 20 mm ShVak cannon.
  • The Bf 109 has a single 250 kg Bomb, Try to dive bomb vehicles/groups of infantry, Killing Infantry 1 person at a time is Costly and A waste of bombs (You only have 1 and it takes a while to replenish!) Be sure not to bomb too low, otherwise you will end up Committing Suicide.
  • Have your team Support you by destroying Flak guns-The 109 has difficulty strafing Flak compared to its allied counterparts, They get free kills and you help them Ravage the enemy Ground forces.
  • If a Lightning or Yak gets on your tail, swerve and loop around trees and in cities.
  • If you are short in credits, be careful when fielding planes: each one costs 361.7 credits in repairs.
