while flying online. I saw a spitfire V catch and overtake an He-162. Didn't think that was possible. I was flying a CR.42 and could not keep up...lol.

He-162 driver let himself get too slow maybe?? The Spit should not go much higher that 400Kph indicated.

Yeah, that's either lag or pilot error. There is no way a Spit can catch a 162 if the pilot isn't too slow to start with and doesn't want to be caught.

The He 162, if piloted by an inexperienced pilot or a pilot who got himself into trouble...can have trouble trying to get the craft to accelerate...something about the jets. Once they get going they really go but their acceleration is somewhat low...so the Spitfire probably caught him while he was on the slow end of his acceleration curve.

I shot a Dora from more than 1000m with the MK108. I aimed and fired one round. Seconds later he exploded. Best of all, we were recording at the time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

sorry dude, don't know how to do that but would be glad to send the track to you. I don't blame you for not believing. My buddy was trying to escape me, he was in the Dora and dove straight down, I in the K4 rolled and dove after him. After reviewing the track you can see the tracer missing by about 10-15m. But the projectile didn't. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If you have MSN add me, when I catch you online i'll send the track. ttbfranzen@hotmail.com

p1ngu666,

I promise you Goodknight doesnt cheat. I have shot him down dozens of times, and have been shot down dozens by him.

If he was accelerating away from you, this is actually logical initially in the matchup you quote. Zero has better power to weight and should accelerate faster until weight becomes more inportant. I have found the zero, as all planes to be a little tough since AEP to bring down. As a matter of fact, the last few times I flew Warclouds historic, I was only killed in a zero when I was PKed! I cant wait for the patch and an increase of damage from all weapons! (Not to mention that I am sick and tired of my 190 gunsight falling off with one bullet hits to my friggin wing!)

Being an avid LW flyer, it took me a long time to realize how/why planes like La's were outdiving and hitting me in a 109 or 190. The 190 was renoun for it's dive away ability, but I was still getting hammered by La's and some of the lighter VVS planes until I realized that extended dive and initial dive are truly two different things. I know you are a good pilot, and know these things, but perhaps in your matchup this is exactly what was happening?

Again, whether you like or dislike the guy, that is entirely up to you, but I would stake my reputation on the fact that he doesnt cheat. His gunnery skills are pretty impressive though. But if you watch closely, he only flys the planes with the bug guns. One pass, and he is out of there. I personally still prefer the 20mm clad A-5 and the Dora over all planes.
