View Full Version : Interesting Storch factoids

A Storch was the victim of the last dog fight on the Western Front and another was fittingly downed by a direct Allied counterpart of the Storch-a Piper L-4 Grasshopper-from the L-4's crew directing their pistol fire at it. The involved Storch was the only aircraft known to have been downed by handgun fire in the entire war.

This is from the wiki page about the Fieseler Fi 156 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fieseler_Fi_156).

Dogfight between a Grasshopper and a Stork using handguns. I love it.

Neat story, Ty.

I think we should lobby for flyables with handgun feature, but of course the 45ACP would surely be undermodeled http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif
