I have been at war while a for a while now and i don't seem to be getting anywhere. My air strikes are inaffective and take heavy losses and my land attacks don't do anything. Any suggestions?

This is a very common question. Seems at least one in three threads ask this. The most effective method of conquering a C3 or any country actually, is to navigate land units all over the enemy map painting it orange. It is amazing how many war index points the country will lose just from painting it orange. You can use any sort of land units such as divisions, brigades, etc. I like to simply use special forces but they require transport units, etc. If the country is adjacent it is cheapest to use occupation units which are comprised of the same weapons as supply units. Periodically attack and destroy a county while you're painting the map orange. You may also need to destroy some towns and even a city or two before reducing the war index to zero. At some point destroy the capital too, that reduces the war index very nicely. Your air units sustained heavy losses likely because you may be attacking an adjacent country. Most new game members aren't aware of the importance of getting a land unit near the target before hitting it with your airforce. It makes a huge difference. It is very quick and easy to conquer a C3 with just a couple airforce attack wings set up with only 1000 fighters and 1000 drones. Use these to first eliminate the enemies defense wings (if you have not destroyed the two defense wings this may be another reason you are sustaining heavy losses, be sure to destroy them first) with your airforce attack wings set up as mentioned here, attack the defense wing with all 1000 fighters and all 1000 drones. You will only lose some drones which are very cheap. I prefer using land base cruise missiles to destroy targets. It is cheaper and more often advised to use long range divisions. Either way, the method you need to use should be 1) use air force attack wings to destroy the defense wings.
2) Navigate land units all over the map to paint it all orange.
3) Use Land based cruise bombs or long range divisions to destroy an occasional target such as a county.
It doesn't take long to conquer the country this way. I jump back a forth from the war to other parts of the game instead of waiting for the land units to move. It feels like it goes faster if you find other ways to occupy yourself while waiting for your land units to move around. But don't forget to keep coming back to the war and assigning new destinations for your units to keep moving. Good luck, Priest

Do I just attack the defence wings with my Air forces or with air and infantry.

You use an attack wing containing 1k Fighter planes and 1k Drones. Attack a counties defence to lure the defensive air wings out.
