" Rocket attacks are generally low altitude events with a shallow dive angle.

Dive angles vary from about 5 to 30 degrees, and release altitudes vary from a few hundred feet to as much as several thousand feet. Remember that low altitudes require shallower dive angles.

For buildings, a steeper dive angle will increase the planform area of the target making it easier to see and hit and so this type of delivery can be very effective. However, you will need to have an altitude of several thousand feet before you begin your roll in to the target and that will make you vulnerable to SAMs. "

From the strategy guide


This is what a fairly typical strafing approach looks like from 2 miles out - just before weapon release. 1,500 feet altitude and 5 degrees nose down.
