My gunnery isn't usually too bad, honest! Anyone else having this trouble?

This is what I use as well. That way, the 37mm shoots straight as an arrow, though it starts to drop off after a couple hundred meters. If you have convergence set to, say, 300m or 500m, the shell will "lob"--it will have a significant upward angle at first. So if you're sitting right on someone's tail, the shell would pass over them.

Use these numbers and then practice against bombers in QMB to get a hang of the 37mm. It only took me one afternoon to get a hang of it, but I never had ANY luck no matter how hard I tried until I used these convergence numbers.

The P-63 is insanely fast, so just get close and hit 'em once in the wing with the 37mm. Most of the time, it's "game over" right then and there. If you hit the fuselage, you'll still often damage the engine or the control surfaces, and about 30-40% of the time you'll blow their plane in half with one hit. And you have about 65 of those 37mm rounds. It's worth putting in the effort to learn to use it, because the results are fantastic.

I knew it was somewhere around there. And with such a low rate of fire, 60 rounds lasts a LONG time.

Greenwidth--I've never been a great dogfighter, but with these settings I can pick off motorcycles with the 37mm cannon on 600kph ground attack passes. It's satisfying in a sick way. Tell us how you do.
