Between the P-47-27 1944 and the FW190-D9 1944, wich one can sustain more damage.

Why i am asking is because i have created a COOP. It's the Berlin map.

Planes involved:

4 captured He's

8 FW190-D9/44

6 P-47-27/44

Every time so far that i have ran the COOP; about 5 times. I noticed that the FW190-D9 can take an abnormal amount of damage.

One example:

At a distance of 190m on the FW's six I fired for 4 strait seconds, parts of his plane flying every where and finaly it's wing blew off.

Is that normal?


second example:

This time i am being fired on by an FW and im in a P-47. I heard a few shots and that was it. My plane was a puff of smoke.

Any way i was wondering if this is normal. Or if there is an ishui with the FWD9 MD and the P-47 MD.


Thanks in advance to anyone who can answer these questions.


Silent out...

Try not shooting directly from the 6. From there the Dora is very well armoured, and so is the P47. Actually I always feel like I need a lot of ammo to shoot down a P47 in my Dora.

The P47 is very good if you manage to shoot from the top. Also it takes the wings of the Dora off pretty easily. Both planes are very tough from behind.

You're wasting most of your ammo trying to destroy it. Simply wait until it's streaming fuel or smoke, and you've got it.

If it's streaming a thin smoke trail, then the engine is destroyed, and will cease function after about five minutes of putting out only about half its rated power.

If it's streaming fuel, then the tanks will be drained in about five minutes if he started at 25%, or ten if he started at 50%. If he started at 75% or 100%, then the aircraft is already to heavy to be a threat.

I really get tired of people who think they have to blast an aircraft into half inch tinfoil chips in order to kill it.

There is a certain amount of disparity between reality and a game, which also should be covered. In reality, when your plane is shot by enemy fire, you can't instantly confirm what is wrong with your plane. Damages on flight controls may be noticed, but when it trails smoke, oil and etc. the pilot I imagine, will be engulfed in some terrible fear.

Not surprising - there are enemy planes all over you, you don't know when your plane may light up in fire, or when the structures may fall brittle. More than likely, the pilot would think of bailing out, rather than even belly land - much less likely to think even sticking around the battle zone. Smoke is usually enough to tempt the pilot to abandon his plane, since better safe than sorry, literally in that case.

Contrary to the real-life situation, a game pilot squirms and wizzes until his last remaining rivet falls and the plane goes snap. Ensuring a 'kill' or a 'victory', can be achieved by fatally damaging enemy plane in the most unmistakable circumstances - ie. snapping the wings off or setting it on fire.
