I've just been stuck in the soviet bomber campaign's mission 4,during which I must protect a train from a imminent german assault.I took off as fast as I can but no matter how fast I am,just before I could see the train,it has been destroyed,so what's the trick?

It may be impossible. If you're talking about Forgotten Battles dynamic campaign, it's likely that your mission 4 is different to everyone else's.

I recommend flying campaigns with "No Instant Success" turned off in difficutly settings. Some of the missions may be unachievable. and this will allow you to continue the campaign without achieving mission succes. I don't consider this taking the easy way, as many real life missions weren't successful either.

Yup tully's right. Turn NoInstantSuccess off. It's like in real life, sometimes you just can't win. You will see that in other misions too, when you'll have to escort bombers for example the enemy usually has the first shot before you can react.

I think the best way to play the dynamic campaign is, like mentioned above, to turn off NoInstantSuccess but to fly like you only have one life to live!

See how far you can get but try to stay alive at all costs instead of hitting refly because you didn't meet all of the mission goals. Flying this way will put a little more fear into your missions and raise the adrenaline factor which enhances the immersion.

With that said, I'm waiting for the patch before I bother with the DC again. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

If I recall correctly, the trains you have to protect are in a city?

If so, you need to take out the tanks directly ahead of your flight path on the first pass. Follow your flight leader and hit one or two if you can. There is another group chasing the train as well, but you have more time to attack them.

Even if the train is destroyed, return to base and land and you will be allowed to continue - some missions in that campaign are damn hard, but they are all possible. Just stick together with your flight, aim carefully, and don't waste your ammo.

Or play on easy! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Forgotten battles is the sequel to IL-2.
