I was flying a 109F4 against a squadron buddy in a K4. We were have a pretty good fight.

I was able to get his 6 and we we both climbing straight up. What he didn't realize is that I had more energy than he did. I could have shot him many times but I'm not one to waste ammo. As we lost our energy and were both stalling, he slowly rolled and gave me his left profile. I carefully aim at the cockpit to see if I could kill the pilot without any real damamge to his plane. this was an opportunity I had been looking for for a long time.
I started firing below the canopy and got the message "(pilot's name)has been killed". Interestingly, I was using only my machines guns and could see little flashes at the hit points.
Even after all this time I can still find cool little details like this. Thanks Oleg. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Thanks.

It's nice to hear of a master at work. Wish I could've seen it first hand.

Sweet...wish I could see it too. I've never had that opportunity...I'm usually waxed by then!

I managed to do it once with a squad mate. He was in K4 and me in P-63.
It was not that clean.... I used my last 37mm round. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Yeah, I love getting PK's in this game. Sometimes when I'm winning a turn fight, I don't even want to damage the enemy plane. I just pop of a couple rounds into the cockpit and they just roll away...

I always try aim at cockpits when I'm flying the 109. I know it's not very gentlemanly but neither are my guns. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

But this was the first time I actually got to see the hits. I was close enough to see the little flashes. I wish I had been recording. Now I just have to figure out how to capture the enemy plane before it hits the ground. I have lots of green and yellow paint. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/59.gif

Yeah the detail is great http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Most of the important stuff is modeled like Fuel tankn, Cables, Pilot, Gear, even your gauges http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

The only time this happened to me I was chasing a Me 262 and it decided to climb away from me for some reason so I chased it(it was a while ago so I can't remember what I was flying) and obviously it ran out of energy and as it keeled over to start into a dive it crossed my sight and I blasted away at the cockpit. It blew up very satisfyingly.
