    David, I need to get 6,250 points to have everything unlocked. As I get close to this number approximately how much air craft will I be fighting off and what type?

    U have to attack on special rogue bases just like hellfire mission..& rogue bases will also use air to defend the base...so when you will go for attack u should be prepare to fight against ground + air units.

    Yes we all know this. Dave said the aircraft defending will increase as you gain experience points. I am asking approximately how much aircraft I would be facing at that point.

    If aircraft gave XP, like Dave said, it would be very easy to exploit. Don't worry though, everything else will give plenty of XP for the work you put in!

    a good way to defend is to put 3 hercules with rifle men on the 2 sides of your megas
    i think hellfires are basically useless due to low HP

    I dunno? I am including 2 hellfires in my platoons because they can still do a lot of damage? And there is a lull in the air attacks too?

    So, maybe I will whip out some megas with gatlings to cover them...wait for the first pass, then go in with the hellfires?

    By the way, how long does this lull between air attacks last? Is it every few minutes that air will attack or what? Because, if it is something on a regular timer, I would love to know. Or is air attack something more "random and unexpected?"

    I believe David said more along the line of random with increasing frequency as our total experience from the event increases

    Niteo, where did you see this, I can't find any reference to that. There was a comment about no Air to Air for this even, but I missed anything regarding no exp for using air units.

    Thanks in advance.

    You get xp for killing with your air but not for killing the air from the base.

    Yeah, I tried to go back and skim all the pages of this thread but, all I could find was that he said the time between air attacks was "reasonable" so, I am still kind of unclear unfortunately.

    If the air attacks do indeed progress with increased frequency as you accumulate XP...I would love to know what "reasonable time" is at it's minimum even lol Is 15 minutes reasonable? 1 minute? I am getting nervous :lol:

    Why is the Hellfire locked?
    The Hellfire Tank is not available in this event. We want to make sure that if a player puts in the work for the top prize, he/she will have the advantage that it brings for an extended period of time. The Hellfire will be available in the next event and the Kondor Bomber (Red Sky’s top prize) will be unavailable until the October event. New prizes will be exclusive for two months!....Operation Red Sky Stickie

    oh so 2 units
    just like the warhawk Event!
    awesome dave! you guys do a great job making events and new units :D
    The best think is that everything is possible i wont be surprised if i saw a nuclear bomber or a particle cannon lol
    i would like more events like defending our base! and attacking bases at the same time!
    or totally a new thing! teaming up with people and attacking when sync play is live

    If you really think Hellfires are useless then you are not a good player. I haven't lost a single hellfire tank inside a base or depot since i got them. They are savage, especially at max range.
