    Do I get any renown for blasting the bastages out of the sky? If so, any list anywhere? I didnt see any listed in the community manual anywhere.
    Now that I have dual flaks on my VIIB, I enjoy the duck hunt, but is it worth it in terms of renown?

    You are also awarded renown for blowing up static search lights. 10 for each one.

    ok, I have found in the game install directory, in the \data\air folder are folders for the different planes. Each one has a .cfg file, and, for example, the one for the Sunderland has a line:
    RenownAwarded=70

    seems like easy renown to me.

    It's a pillbox with a searchlight in it. Placed on enemy shores, usually around the naval guns of Scapa Flow, Gibraltar and Loch Ewe (I'm sure you can find them elsewhere too).
    If you get too close, they are supposed to light you up and direct the artillery as well as notify every RN ship and airplane in the area.
    As usual..

    if year &lt; 1942 then searchlight = target practise
    else
