Hi guys,
Yesterday evening i was playing online.

There was a opponent who flew a stuka, i flew
an other plain. I couldn`t shoot him because
i was out of ammo.

The next plane i took was also a stuka.
I flew to their airfield for an airstrike.
I saw that same stuka, he was chasing me.

I stay flying at the enemies aifield.

I was about 500m high and my chaser lower.

At the moment i was near the airfield i loose
my bomb but it hitted the chasing stuka.

I thought that it was impossible to bomb an airplane
but i stroke one.

I must ask what was your altitude? The reason being a 500lb bomb packs a lot of punch and will take down planes that are near it when it goes off.
So if you were at 1,000 AGL, and he was 500 AGL estimated possibly lower. When you bomb hit the ground and detonated it may have taken him out.

I've used the tactic online before in P-40's against later war planes I was not much of a match for at the time. I would grab a 500lb bomb, and fly low. When they took the bait, and started shooting I would drop the bomb with a 3 second delay. It would blast them 80% of the time if not more.

So you may have hit the ground near him, but hey anything is possible. Look at the picture of the guy bailing out of his Hurri who came crashing down through a TB-3's wing.

no hopperfly, i hitted him. I saw it in the outside
view. I wanted to see how my bomb felt on the
airfield. Then i saw that it was right in the rose.
I didn`t it on purpose. Now i am regretted that i didn`t make a track of it.

I've used FAB 50's to take down He111's when out of ammo before. (twice) I had witnesses, but alas, no track.

It CAN happen. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
