Getting the Night Owl Medal
Youll need to finish the campaign using ONLY any of the following: A-10A, Tornado GR.4 and F-117A
Note that attackers are the slowest and least maneuverable planes in the game so facing enemy fighters may be a problem. Personally, I only used the A-10A with FAEB for ground based operations/missions and the Tornado with ECMP for the anti-air missions. Since the medal requires you to finish the game using an attacker type plane, then you can give your wingman the best plane you can get and equip him with AA weapons. That way, you will just have to rely on your wingman and allied units for support so you can concentrate on the mission.
The FAEB (see Special Weapons section) of the A-10A is probably the most destructive antiground weapon you can get in the game. It pretty much destroys light-medium armored targets in a very large area, making a fast, clean sweep pretty much easier.
The Tornados ECMP is very useful when facing enemy aircraft and spoof their missiles. Since the Tornado is really hard to maneuver, it is almost impossible to evade a missile fired at short range.
Out of fun, I used the A-10 on Mission 09: Heavy Command Cruiser. Since the enemy cruisers are large targets, it was exhilarating to drop FAEBs on their decks and watch several targets destroyed at once. Try it for once.
