      Basically what happens when you bomb an airfield which has planes refueling on it? Sorry for the noobish question but only my first proper game..

      Situation was a minor power ( Algeria ) declared on me after having a girly strop about UAVs over his territory. Which didn't seem like a big problem...

      Trouble is his mate in Libya, who seems to spend loads of gold joined him. Set up a forward airbase instantly in a province rather than a city, brought a stack of 9 strike fighters and proceeded to one shot my units with it.

      Which wasn't exactly how I'd seen things panning out.

      Waited till his a/c were refueling and hit the province with my 4 strike fighters though I didn't see the results other than the provincial airfield being reduced from 10 to 7 HP.

      Would I have done much damage to his aircraft here? Lv 4 I think they were..

      Things to keep in mind:
      You have to reduce the airfield to below 4 to ground his planes and make the airfield unusable (until he heals it/rebuilds it)
      Check the CoN News to see what you killed if anything. It's not always accurate, but it's close.

      Good tips.
