Flying Through Hail is the sixth and final mission in Medal of Honor: Airborne. It takes place in a partially destroyed third-generation flak tower in Essen.

Overview Edit

Der Flakturm is a massive, concrete structure, with several 128mm FlaK 40 anti-aircraft guns at the very top. It is not particularly large in terms of width, but is very tall.

Mission objectives Edit

  • Secure Flak Tower
  • Destroy Artillery Guns (3)
  • Destroy AA Guns (4)
  • Eliminate Enemies on Halftracks (3)
  • Disable Ammunition Lift Controls on 4th Floor
  • Disable Ammunition Lift Controls on 2nd Floor
  • Assemble at Main Control Room on 3rd Floor
  • Assemble with Engineers in Ammunition Storage
  • Escape Flak Tower
  • Destroy Flak Tower

Enemies Edit

There are many enemies found throughout the Flak-tower. The main enemies will be Fallschirmjäger commanders (100+) and snipers (4-5), but there are plenty of Waffen Storm Leaders and Waffen Officers (at least 70+), a few Panzergrenadiers (5) and a handful of Nazi Storm Elite (20).

Skill drops Edit

  • On the southeastern side of the tower, between the uppermost roof level and the lower ring around it, there's a small balcony with a chute on it. Land through the doorway.
  • There's a pretty obvious chute on the scaffolding.
  • The secret entrance. There's a very tough-to-spot window on the northwestern corner of the tower, above one of the markers for one of the halftrack soldiers. The easiest way to find the window is to land on top of the tower and head downwards completing objectives. After destroying the ammo lift controls on the fourth floor, take the ladder in the room downward to the semi-hidden ammo cache room.
  • On the wester
    TheFlakTower

    Der Flaktürm, a large structure capable of defending an entire city from an armada of Allied airplanes and paratroopers.

    n side of the tower, in the middle of all the sniper's scaffoldings, there's a set of small windows, including one with a chute in it.
  • This is on the ground floor. If you look from the tower back towards your ground drop zone, it'll be on the second floor of the house on the left.

TipsEdit

  • It's best to use SMGs or assault rifles/light machine guns in this mission. Rifles can take down enemies at long range but useless against the Nazi Storm Elite troops.

TriviaEdit

  • This mission shared the same location as the previous mission. It can clearly be seen while parachuting. In this mission, you can see the Ruhr Factorial District from anywhere, but you can only see the Flak Tower from one of the sniper water towers in Operation Varsity.
  • The Flak Tower shown in this mission is completely fictional.
  • This is the only mission where the C96 Mauser is available in the Weapon Loadout menu.
  • The track "Das Flakturm" played during the level appears to draw heavily on Vienna-style waltzes.
  • If you land on the highest level of one of the houses on the right, you may get an M18 recoiless rifle.
  • "Der Flakturm" translates to The Flak Tower.
