I'm finding it a bit difficult to survive as an observer (just the guns with auto pilot) in either a BE2 or FE2b in the Flanders area. Every mission, I run into no less than 5 EIIIs who eat me alive. I can't seem to survive past 1-3 missions. It was a fluke one time that I managed to survive 6 missions.

It's kindda frustrating and I'm wondering if there is something I'm missing or am I playing it the wrong way?
