When ejecting from an aircraft, it is always sucessful, no matter how badly damaged the aircraft is. How about the canopy jamming, if the cockpit is hit in such a way, so that you cannot automatically eject, you have to manually eject, just like automatically or manually lowering the landing gear. Canopy jams happened in real life, so how about a patch being released incorporating canopy jams? Just a thought, what do others think?

PS - roll on 19 March 2004 - that the release date for Aces Expansion added on here in the UK - cann't wait.

Good idea http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

How about if you have to launch your parashute manually, isnt that a good idea ?

No more hanging 15 minutes in the sky for nothing, just wait till last moment and open...too late http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Ejecting is NOT always successful. Try doing that after making emergency landing in the field. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I was going to say the same thing. You often cannot get out due to G forces from spinning or if you've been badly wounded.

I wouldn't join any club that would have ME as member!

OR.. full full real effect of smacking canopy on bailout/ejection - just bash yourself with a shovel and jump out the window. works specially well if you live in apartment bldg. higher floors
Its more FR that way.
