Last night on Virtualpilots server. No icons were on. I flew a B-25 on the big finnish map. Taking of from southern side of the gulf I took a tour over it heading for Kotka. My intention was to attack the enemy base north of Kotka.

Half way over the gulf, flyin some 300 degrees, with autolevel on - sitting in top turret, I was approached by a plane. Apparantly he closed me to ID me. Opposition had the HE-111 and he propably did not want to shoot down a friendly. As he got closer the AI gunners opened up on him and so did I! He wass hit by several shots and began smokin. He broke off to left and lost hight. I moved to tailturret and saw him approach from low six again, this time to pay back the welcoming he got.

I held my fire untill he got som 300 meters away and then hit him hard - an explosion and he was gone. The guy left the server so I was sure he had not alerted any other guys. The flight went on.

I could identify Kotka by sight now.
There at my left I could see a plane fly a course counter to mine and he had spotted me.

Now he began shallow dive towards me. Sitting in the top turret I held my aim on him. He approached me at 45 degrees from aft and simultaniously with tthe AI gunners I opened fire on him...PILOT KILLED! Hes smoking plane went right down 1500 meters without him opening fire! Two kills without a scratch on my aircraft http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

The attempted attack on the base never happened because the server broke down a few minutes after http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

The funny thing is that my approach from an unsuspected vector made these two pilots so unsurton on whether it was a friend or a foe they approached me with such low velocity it made them sitting ducks to my gunners http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

What a pity the server went down http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif
