I heard a brit typhon driver running or jamming his guns while chasing a buzzbomb and he got right beside the buzzbomb and with his wing and hitting the buzzbomb's smaller tipping up on the wing and sending the buzzbomb into a flat spin?

I belive that was an accepted, but dangerous, tactic for the disposal of the V-1s.

It was because the V-1 carried a very large payload, and shooting it down in the conventional manner brought with it a high probability that the allied plane would be damaged in the resulting explosion-sometimes fatally. Hence the "tipping" tactic.

Well, from what we know here, the V-1 will be part of the upcoming expansion pack.
