Ok so I'm doing a turkey-shoot in a YP80 with a B25. After watching the replay I noticed something odd. Right at the moment when my cockpit got hit and my pilot wounded from the B25 rear gunner, I saw a green splash, like a starburst; see screenshot. Right after that the nose cone got blown off. I managed to crashland and walk away. If you watch the track, use the slo-mo keys!

And? All I'm wondering is, what is it? The canopy? Blood and guts but in yellow/green?

I don't know the technical term but it's ricochet-stuff you see it all the time when metal hits metal.

Fly the sturmovik, you'll see that happening tons of times. It's caused by bullets that fly of you're airplane, better than penetrating it if ya ask me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It's a quite ugly effect for ricochets if you ask me, it's more like sun glare.

I get that all the time when I fly into aliens bailing out of their UFO.

Looks more yellow than green to me. Here's a thought: you have a translucent yellow effect against a blue background. That's probably why you see a little bit of a green tint to it.

yup its yellow.
this indicates that armor was hit, most likely you'll see some white stripes coming of the hit plane too.
