Default Re: thermal imaging...

I agree with both posters above me, air strike utility in this game is limited. The biggest problem is that you rarely can buy more than 2 air strikes per random game (unless playing as the USA) and if your opponent takes even a minimum of good air defenses, which aren't that expensive tbh, they are more of a liability than an asset. That being said, if you find using air strikes useful you should always remember to properly plan the routes of the air strike, the point being having your aircraft spend the least amount of time possible flying over the enemy side of the map (which is where most AA will be). And, like Mobhack said, use them in mass, not in isolated packs.

And for some reason I never liked SEAD aircraft. But even them are better than level bombers which is a unit just for show.
