If you were using arcade mode to show your hits, and the pilot was full of arrows, this does not mean he was full of bullets. The arrows only show direction of penetration, not distance (thats why they're all the same length). It is quite possible that all five of those rounds hit windscreen/fuselage/bulkhead or whatever and didnt even scratch the pilot.

I play offline a lot


I do not recall ever killing a pilot or gunner


In some cases i have taken the elevators, rudder and a good part of the tail fin completely off a Pe8 and the tail gunner is still happily firing away http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

You've undoubtedly killed many, but only a small fraction of the aircraft have a slumped pilot/gunner graphic or other clear visual indication of a kill. Many aircraft that do a slow bank or glide into the dirt have dead pilots. If you turn arcade mode on you will learn a lot about what is happening. It is an excellent training aid.

Note that many light machine guns don't seem to score any hits, and a few aircraft have cockpit portions that are highly resistant to 0.5 caliber as well (particularly on the side?) 0.303/7.62 should not penetrate cockpit armour or armoured glass. On the other hand, 0.5 caliber from direct 6 will often penetrate the head/backrest area. I suspect their will be considerable clean up of the damage models with the patch.

- I know it's souns really dumb, but waht is arcade

The easiest way is to edit the config-file and put arcade mode to 1. Default is zero. Use Notepad and search for arcade.

Very good learning device. Takes some fps but shows exactly where your bullets hit. Amazingly few makes it to the target....

The speech bubbles are a little bit anoying but gives you some additional hints such as pilot kills and when the AI heads for home due to injuries.

Good luck

They need to rework the black pk screen, it may be realistic but as soon as a pilots pked the hit esc and refly and disapear, they need to make it switch to flyby view in externals when pked and you cant refly untill the planes crashed into the ground.
