Aircrafts non efective against armored units!? Here are historical examples of very effective armor killers:

Ilyushin Il-2 for WWII

A 10 Thunderbolt II for Gulf War

Armor are weak against air to ground attack (diving bomb, missile, 30+mm shells and other clever weapon) as their armor are mainly designed against ground to ground weapons (landmines, bazooka, canons).
That's why large armored formations include anti aircraft vehicles.
