Was doing a bit of offline flying in a 109 against some LAs. Actually was trying not to get shot by them. Well to make a long story short I took 3 rounds in the right wing (had arcade on) and get the cannon jammed message in blue. Now the only 109s that had wing cannons are the Emils, so whats up with the cannons jamming with a wing hit in the G models?


Id post a screen shot if i had one i hit the screenshot key but it didnt register

I've seen this a few times in various planes and in each case there was a trajectory line through the gun area. Sure you didn't have anything passing through there?

been a issue since fb, also one hit to the left or right wing can damage engines, snap all cables ailerons rudder and elevator. cause oil splashs on the mustang and 109.

Very odd with arcade mode turned on seeing this and dont know the explaination becuase it happens offline and online.

It happens with flak alot too when being hit in the wing you loose the nose cannon first with no hits going near it.

109 p38 p39 p62 alot

Positive nothing went thru the gun area as it was at about a 45 degree angle from the top down straight thru.

Hit by a cannon round? Explosive charge or shrapnel perhaps hit the cannon...

With arcade on you can see which way the the shrapnel goes to and there were 3 arrows going thru the right wing where the guns are mounted on the Emils no explosions or anything else. How i wish the screen shot worked better in FB cause i didnt have fraps on silly me

S!

The DM is bugged and full of anomalies, even there have been many revisions of it in recent patches. Something like this: hit Ta152H in left wing with machine guns and voila, his cockpit is gone. Another..hit a Bf109G from 800m with a SINGLE .303cal (arcade ON) and it cripples the cockpit, thrashes engine and wounds pilot..List goes on on both sides planes, so not having a LuftWhine(tm) issue here http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

on this I'd like to add that the MG's on the 190 also jam an awful lot of time
