Your flying in a bomber formation, when you realize your going down in flames. Something got you by surprise! It might be a sneaky fighter, but it could be something else. A tank? That '''Can't''' be possible, can it? In AH you will recinize that there are many other dangers in AH, but this danger is a tank. The Ostwind has a 37mm flak gun that can be deadly at any time. This means there can be dangers lerking about when a plane sees a Ostwind and attacks. The Ostwind should survive.

This may be the hardest thing to kill, but if you do it right you may be the survivor! If you try to get a Ostwind with your rockets, that may do it. You see Ostwinds are very bad at long range killing. Rockets go 3x the range of the Ostwinds flak gun, makeing you have the upper hand at exicution. This may be your lucky day.

The Ostwind in Aces High II

Often skiped by for the Wirblwind, I personally feel the osti is just as good as, if not better than, the wirb. What it lacks up for in volume and rate of fire, it makes up for in hitting power. While hits from a wirblwind may be deadly, a hit from the ostwind certinaly is.

Fighting in the Ostwind

Don't open fire too early, or you may scare him away. While 1.5k is concidered acceptable for a wirb, I usually concider 1k to be the maximum rage you should fire at. The reason is the osti doesn't have the volume of fire needed to guarentee hits. Open up at D1000-D800 and keep firing untill he is past you or dead.

Fighting against the Ostwind

Perhaps the most difficult AA vehicle to attack. The ostwind isn't as good at landing hits from the verticle or at a target moving perpendicular to its fire, but even one hit is fatal to all but the heavy bombers, the Il2 and occasionaly the P-47's. If you have a bomb, then use that, if not then you should try to turret it, or at least track it on one side so you have somewhere to attack from. The back of the hull is the only place you can land hits on that will actually kill the vehicle other than a lucky shot taht goes down the open top and happens to kill the driver.
