Additional Ground Targets
Additional ground targets are essential for high scores. Although from a scoring standpoint all ground targets count the same, destroying certain targets will be more beneficial to you than others. Also, some weapons are more effective on certain targets than others.
If you have light weapons, SAM radar sites are excellent targets. Destroying a site will disable all of the launchers. These can be easily strafed if you have the time. It's often a good idea to take out a nearby SAM radar first before attacking the major objective.
If you have some heavy weapons left, take out a runway. Enemy planes will scramble from the closest runway. If the nearest runway is destroyed, they'll have to come from the next closest base, which might be very distant. This should make your flight home a lot easier!
