It's hard to adapt when you have no control over how your planes get shot down. since it's all RNG, no skill involved. Try to do a strike. only one, lose maybe 1-2 planes, the rest are already half health. ANd I speak from a t10 perspective. Try to do a second run with the same squad, maybe all of them gets suddenly shot down from a single well-placed flak burst, or just the constant AA damage finally annihilating the squad. How can you adapt to that?
