They probably won't. But that really doesn't matter. In a game like this, you can easily mount an all-air force and focus completely on frying those tanks (or hunting for artillery and strike units) while someone else uses their quick capture teams or tanks of their own after you're done the cleaning up of whatever is the greatest threat to your side's point capturing units.
It's usually not a very bright idea to split your squad into both air and ground units because you won't be able to move at the same speed and across the same terrain. You want to be able to focus on one squad only and not divide your attention between multiple tasks.
