This is the penultimate level of Homefront and has you in command of the helicopter that you have just stolen. Your objective is to hijack three tankers for the resistance. You have Missiles and Guns at your disposal using your LT and RT respectively.

The level plays out in a series of stages

The first has you simply steering the chopper and taking out targets which are firing missiles at you. Simply veer left and right to avoid the missiles while firing back and shouldn't be a problem until you reach a tunnel

BEWARE your steering in the tunnel as there is some debris which you can snag onto and use your LB and RB to change your height (i found this was not explained during gameplay too well)

When you come out of the other side you will be tasked with destroying the support vehicles next to the tankers as they travel up a hillside. Again simply keep moving and fire your missiles and you can't really go wrong as at this point i do not believe you can damage the tankers (please correct me if i am wrong on that).

After that you will be asked to get alongside the tankers in order to hijack them. Move down to the left of the rear most tanker and press X to get your squad member to hijack, repeat for the next two tankers. Note that there are still a few RPG targets firing on you so its best to deal with them quickly.

Once you have the tankers you have to protect them from RPG men and roadblocks. First you encounter guys on each side and two roadblocks ahead, the second one you need to take out is the highway and once done, the tankers will need to find an alternate route. Protect them as they slowly make their way through the neighborhood using the same tactics as previous. You will also encounter a Gunship but a few missiles will destroy this no problem.

Once the tankers are on the highway and moving they will make their way across the bridge but come under heavy fire. BEWARE there are SAM Sites around this area that you will need to deal with. You will need to stay just behind the tankers and watch the road as armored vehicles will continually try to get close. Protect the tankers until Hopper takes out the bridge behind them with charges so they can not follow. Once this is done that is mission complete.

NOTE: You are also able to pick up the Safer Skies 10pt Achievement for destroying all SAM Trucks in this level.

Hope this is of some help :-)
