I noticed that there is no saftey switch on the machine guns when firing....its possible to shoot off ur on tail! This happened to me----had a Zeke on my 6 O'clock and tried to use the top turret......and well before I could count the holes..shot my tail off!---------but I got the Zeke! This was the B-25J. The only cheat I use is unlimited ammo....I need all the bullets !

Are you saying there was a switch that, when the gun was in certain positions, it wouldn't fire? That sounds reasonable.

Also, Oleg seems to have forgotten that gunners could reload .. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

Yes, its a small glich, but becareful to not shoot ur pilot when fly that big Tupolev bomber!

Heres a nifty move to get that Zeke off ur tail: get down to the hard deck and release one of ur bombs......a 500 pounder will do, if the Zero gets down with u.......the explotion from the bomb will blow his wings off.

Well, he hasn't forgotten. You get as much ammo as a gunner would, cept you don't need to reload, you just continue firing. At least, that's how it is in my experience. The larger aircraft gunners have quite a lot of ammo, like the A-20, B-25, He-111, etc. But aircraft like the IL-2, the gunner has 150 rounds, which is correct.
