2 cards max per deck, and I'm assuming two people per team. That means the other guys sunk 600 points into four units. How many deployment points did you start with?

My advice to you, without knowing anything about your deck comp, map or anything actually important to actually give such advice (That's a hint, next time post these things), is that you're not spending enough on Air Defense and Recon. A cheap, Mig-21bis will turn that expensive and limited Nighthawk into flaming scrap. Also, don't group your units tightly, Nighthawks can be rendered ineffectual simply by spreading out.

Again, all this is the generic advice given to all players who whine about the Nighthawk, if you want more detailed help, consult the Tutorial Walkthrough section and be more detailed about the situation.

You can if you have more than one player on it. I've had a helo drop get ruined by 3 F-15s at the start of the match, which proceeded to kill the MiG-29 I'd deployed to ward off Nighthawks. From then on, they only came out in groups of 3-4, even after swatting three down.

Nighthawk used to be OP until PACT AA got better optics.

Off topic, but how so?
