In IL2 if you werent carefull you could shoot off your own tail if you were a tail gunner in a Stukka or an IL2...now in FB you cant. This is a great sim...hands down the best there is.... but that feature should have never been removed. Or at the very least it should be toggled with vulnerability or something..but not absent all together. It is a drag to be swinging around on a target and shoot through my own tail with not so much as a torn rudder.

You sure its absent...I remember accidentally sawing off a tail in a co-op as a IL-2 gunner. Ooops! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That was 1.0 however...

I shot off my rudder and half one elevator in a stuka, but I think it took a bit of ammo.

I can still put some grafix holes in the wing of a TB~3, but other than that Bear is right, not much happens.

You can shoot your engines in the Russian bomber though, but the tails don't seem to get destroyed as easily http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Well IMHO the DM should be the same as if you were shooting an enemy plane.

I can't say about German or Russian aircraft, but I'm pretty sure that most, if not all, Allied aircraft with gunner positions had interupters that prevented the gun from shooting whenever it was pointed at the airframe. I'd really be suprised if the Germans didn't have the same thing, seeing as how they pioneered the whole idea of interupter gears back in WWI.

In this matter i like the TB-3. Some times I'm gunning and get into an argument with the other gunners, or the pilot (over a bottle of vodka) and i shoot all of them and bail out (with the vodka). http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

This is off topic but what the hey. B24 Davis wing had so much flex that the interuptors had to account for it on the top turret to keep from shooting up the props/engines.
