Anyone else shoot themselves down so many times with their own richochets they're multiple ace's? Happens so often in 109s I'm a multiple ace. Can we get a stats feature for self shootdown, I'd like to log book them, how does the game score this? Certainly not shot down by enemy. Is it possible to do in any other planes?

56K maybe? I've never seen anything like it before or had it happen personally.

Ive done it, but not in the air! Crash in the water and once in awhile after a belly landing you can fire the guns and blow the plane up. I dont see how its possible if in the air. Unless the pilot is shooting himself in the head with his service revolver. Maybe he is referring to shooting a bomber down.

Opportunity may only knock once, but temptation just keep's on knocking.

I'm talking getting in so close with cannons and mg's that the richochets from you pounding the guy in front bounce back and takes your own plane out, either engine or oil cooler. You don't explode normally, but get the black windscreen and smokercraft that can't make it back to base. You know, self made ace shootdown.

I used to do that every so often in 1.0 but after a while i thought to myself... sure they say fill the gunsight with their plane but this is rediculous, so common sense said to take a step back a bit. Haven't tried it in 1.11 due to the fact i don't like it when I shoot myslef with the spray of the 30mm.

Actually I think it's kind of cool, just wondering how many other guys were aces. Also any other planes have it happen, probably have to have the arrows on in most because of the stronger engines in them. Even mg's will do it on occasion, but mostly cannons.

Let's see...

Fly straight up, fire your guns, hold your position until your rounds fall back down on you. If you stall, do a 180 Immelman, put flaps to 'landing', turn off engine, wait for rounds to hit your six.

Hmmmm, I might try that!

Don't feel bad in fact I have a motto for you, everytime that happens say this, "I am the great Aceholio, do you have teepee for my bulletholes!" That should cure the blues. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

While I've never seen my own rounds cause my plane damage, if you manage to explode an enemy plane when it's right in front of you, you'll suffer damage from the blast. As well as the debris.
