View Full Version : It all went quiet

09-28-2006, 07:06 AM
I was cruising along the coast in my Mossie, when I was greeted by tracers and dots of flak.

In front of me on the surface was Type 7 uboat, and I decided to attack.

Since I was comming in on his port side I dived to give him a good strafe first.

I noticed some hits, but pressed on, pushing the button, strike, belching smoke from the tower.

As I flew over him I noticed it was strangely quiet, and I pressed F2.


Now I never had this happen to me before.

hmmm.... if you planned on gliding at all, you may want to drop the bombs. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

are you sure you pressed the right button?

the "Drop Bombs" button is quite near to the "Drop Engines" button in 4.05m

happened to me in the first PE2 mission, i pulled out of my dive bombing, flew over a destroyer...and seconds later...all went quiet...except the radio telling me to bail out....there was no chance...

Thanks, that made my day.

Actually, if the day is good, you'd want to keep the bombs - the extra weight will improve your penetration as you glide between thermals. Of course you won't climb as fast in the thermals with the extra weight, so if the lift is weak then jettison the bombs.

Don't have track of it, but once in an online server a guy with a 109G2 blew all my 4 engines (TB-3) off, like the U-boat did to you here. It slowed me down so much that my gunners got an accurate aim and killed his engine as a revenge, it didn't fall of though...

All the U-boat crew could hear was the screams come from the glider http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
Then all the pilot could hear was the screams from the German sunbathers trying to grab their beach towels berfore the glider hit the beach http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
