Very smart, but there is 2 downloads. The 1.92GB update and the 1.73 map download. Hopefully you got both.

After watching videos like this, I have some recommendations for Air Sup:

Loadout:
- Stealth, Flares, Heatseekers (missiles allowed)
- Proximity Scan/Maintenance, Extinguisher, blank (guns only)
- No unlocks (ultimate challenge)

Suggestions:
- Fly together as a squadron. Think of Aftermath Scavenger Mode but in the air.
- Fly low to the ground and don't use afterburners unless you're maneuvering.
- Once you get a disable, move on to the next target. The enemy pilot can't bail anyways.

You sound sick, are you feeling OK? I think you should go home and get some rest.

You can get crazy jet points in air sup. mode. Uploading video of my first game of it right now. I do like it, maybe even love it.

Fun! Although in my first game I got stuck in the low flight ceiling for literally half the game, and just when I started to move out of it I went out of bounds and died! Second game though was lots of fun. Got killed more by collisions than heatseekers.

when I first heard of this mode, this is what I thought I'd run - beam scanning (when I unlock it), flares, and heat seeker, but then I wondered if maybe stealth would be better than beam scanning, being more defensive is probably better for a pilot like myself (i.e. a bad one). But then the idea of maintenance and extinguisher came to my mind for better repairs, at least this would force someone to stay on you and they can't just disable you and turn off. Decisions, decisions.

If you watch the video I posted, you'll see the pilots tried extinguisher. The problem is getting nailed right away. Extinguisher/Maintenance takes too long to kick in. That's why I think it's best for guns only servers.
