Tactics depend on the terrain and the opponent. In most casts, wyverns will deploy in the most protected way possible, not needing line of sight to Shred things. Pask's Vanquisher Squadron will deploy for best LoS options possible. Majority of Infantry will deploy to protect the armour from alpha-strikes and the like, hopefully using conga line techniques to prevent drop pod spam if necessary. They can also deploy as two big squads instead of 5 if kill points is a thing. Any extras will camp objectives. D-99s will project a deep threat, and will drop down wherever they can have the most use. D-99s can also deploy normally if Deep Striking is not advantageous. Vultures are highly mobile and will hit priority targets as soon as they get on the board.
All in all, this list will shred anything that isn't heavily mechanized. Pask's Warlord trait gives Preferred Enemy(pick a factor) to the entire CAD. Wyverns will vape anything less than T8 very quickly, especially when there are high model counts. Vultures will likewise cause a lot of wounds to anything less than T10, can maul flyers, and can glance AV11. The vanquishers will concentrate on anything armoured first, and 2+ saves second. D-99's will aim to do as much backfield damage as possible, or if it's more advantageous, grab objectives. Platoon command squads will hide and send orders at the Infantry Squads, and become objective grabbers/bubble wrap as necessary. Finally, any vehicle that comes close to the Infantry Squads can expect to get swarmed with krak grenades.

I'm going GUARD for this one :p

Sorry couldn't resist.

I'm going for the 909th for this one. The first list has nothing that can deal with those flyers and the 909th have a large number of wyversn that'll put the hurt on any troops trying to hold the objectives. They've also got a lot of infantry models there to hold objectives.

I have no idea. Will air superiority compensate for running footsloggers against Hellhounds & Wyverns? Hard to say.

Why does anybody field squadrons of dakka Russes without keeping a Primaris Divinator nearby?

I can't pick it either, they've both got the tools to destroy the other.

The 909th just has too bizarre of weapon loadouts that I can't give them this game. Pask is going to live just fine for the First List.
