Welcome to the war thunder top tier, where CAS (close air support) is a heavily frowned upon, or sometimes "hard" for new top tier pilots bringing their aircraft into ground battles, so I've put together this guide to help with that.
The basics of this guide are; which type of vehicle to use, how to evade SAM / SPAAGs, how to use helicopters and jets effectively.
CAS Guide Timestamps
0:00 - 2:30 - Vehicle Explanation; this section goes over which vehicles are right for different tasks, that's right, one aircraft will NOT fit all situations. Attack Helicopters are good for capping points, standoff missile attacks, and even air to air or scouting. Bombers are good for clearing out large enemy forces, and attackers are good at picking off the enemy one by one.
2:30 - 6:00 - Helicopter Explanation; along with how to use aircraft in ground battles. At 8.0-9.0 you won't face much SAM's, SPAAGs will be the issue, avoiding them is quite simple, however, when you get to higher tiers, SAM's because a problem, this section shows you tips to evade SAM's and even combat enemy aircraft
