Yay, the I-16 is a robust little bugger..


Well, here's my story..

Flying the Llov 1941 with a type 18, so we're evacuating
another airfield and enroute we run into a bunch of
Me 109E/F2/4 something that cleary bent on taking our
Li2 down (dc3), spotting them I break out of formation and
manages to get on the tail of one 109, get's a little bit
to eager and forgets to watch my airspeed/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif , but manages
to narrowly dive clear of the 109's right wing, beliving that
everything is okay, until the moment my wingman starts screaming that
I should bail.?
So I switch to exteral view and discover to my horror that
my rudder and vertical stablisator has been ripped off /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif , but I see the 109
tumbling to his death
lacking his right wing /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif .
So I break off further
engament and heads for home, but manages to
take down another 109 on my way home, with pure luck and some help of
matrix time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif , that mission earned me another Hero of Soviet Union /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif .

I think I'm gonna stay with the I-16 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
