Usage in battles

In air battles, the MK 77 is great for base bombing. For example: in the A-4E Skyhawk, you can get a base with only 4 of them and you get substantial amount of SL per base. So when you equip a full napalm loadout or only 8, you can use it to farm easy SL in a game (especially when no one shoot you down and you go back to base and bomb again, amounting to around 4 bases + some AI targets).

Pros and cons


  • Good range of action
  • Effective against open top vehicles and enemy bases


  • Ineffective against armoured vehicles
  • Heavy
