I was on a bomber intercept mission, when we found them, I realised they were 110`s with a bomb load. That was new for me. Normally, I only ever see them in fighter mode...
Anyway, I picked the right most 110, which had opened more space from the rest of the group, while ordering the others to attack.

The 110`s gunner fired spasmodically at me. I crept close and closer. He turned slightly left and right. the gunner again fired at me. Missed. I got ever closer, lining up...

This was so perfect, one more half a second more and he would be a smoking wreck. I was so close.

Almost as if sensing that he was finished, (Or perhaps his gunner was screaming at him that I was in kill range /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif ), the 110 suddenly dropped his bombload and made a hard evasive manouever! It totally caught me off guard- I fired quickly to catch him, but his evasion worked and he got away with a slightly smoking engine.

Now that AI acted like a human pilot. He waited till the last second then when he realised he would die with that bombload he let go. Excellent stuff! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It is a great game, isn't it? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif


BTW, with your 1000 posts, are you still not able to boom&zoom? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif



(that was a joke)

shall be judged: and with what
measure ye mete, it shall be
measured to you again.

I agree SeaFire, I've always found the AI to be challenging and interesting opponents. (admittedly, I don't fly offline too much). I know everyone says they are dumb and easy to kill, but I've seen them do some pretty smart things before /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

You need at least 2000 posts to boom & zoom.... until then you can only hit & run.

"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall
