I have a couple of questions to help with some B-17 missions I'm making (no, you won't be flying a B-17). I tried the (nearly useless) search tool, but you know how that goes.... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Does anyone know the limits where 8.8cm Flak 18 guns will engage targets? (altitude, weather conditions). I'd really be interested to know if there's a way to get them to fire in anything but near-perfect visibility.

Is there any way to get AI planes to conduct head-on attacks on bomber formations?

Thanks!

These two threads might help you:

AA Anti Aircraft Range (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/50910533/m/5741038782/r/2281007792#2281007792)

Heavy AA affected by weather? (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/50910533/m/7301074043/r/7301074043#7301074043)


Cheers!

PS I entered aa into the search function and it came up with loads of stuff, including these! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I've tried many ways, setting GATTACK waypoints "nose to nose," various voice comms to my AI flight like "attack my target," etc., and they don't seem to ever want to make a head-on attack.

Thanks for the replies!

Dunkelgrun, one of those threads had the answer I needed: 5000m altitude in poor/blind weather.

Saunders, if you're talking about plane to plane head on, the AI pilots must be set to 'Veteran' or 'Ace' before they will shoot in a head on merge. The 'Average' and 'Rookie' AI pilots just won't do it.
