Last night, I was playing coop w/ my Uncle against the AI and had the most annoying thing happen.

I was in a 109 G-2 and a Hurri IIb zoomed me and managed to barely spray me. If I were a betting man, I'd say less than 10 .30 rounds made contact. In fact my uncle, who was following behind me, didn't even see any trash come off my plane.

Wouldn't you know it though! The Hurri managed to take out both my rudder and elevators! Lucky sob.

I wouldn't care so much if he'd been a Hurri IIc and peppered me with the 4 x 20's. Grrrr.....

Right after I maneuver hard and acquire the bandit's 6 and he lags/warps and I lose visual then next thing I know he's on my 6 and I'm taking fire...I hate when that happens!

Flying a VEF mission in IL2 1.4 leading a flight of 109G-6 early (you remember how good they were...) against a flock of LA-5FN (you remember how good they were...).

Having been massacred in our last few missions flying the G6 our squad decided to wear down the LA5s by taking the long way around and getting 6km+ altitude. Climbing away from our airbase we were at 4000m and climbing when I got pk'd by the first burst, a second later my wingman followed. The LA5FN, having made a B-line for our base at low alt at 500kph had easily covered the 40km and had zoomed up behind us.

Frustrating because for me it signalled the end of VEF until that planeset finished. Also because we were getting tank-rushed (any C&C/Red Alert players out there?) and we couldn't get away/above/around.

But hey, I'm not bitter /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I would have to say in the Crimea QMB, playing as Luftwaffe in a Me262, flying approx 3000 metres got a lucky shot from one of the ships below just before initial contact with the approching enemy aircraft.

In a non combat zone, same map, was set up beautifully during landing with my 262, 50 meters from tarmac, when my stupid AI 262 wingman crashed into me.

Well, the 109 has obviously fragile controls. This is supposed to be reinforced in the next patch,,,

Too many things to frustrate me.. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Was flying a Pe-8 online when a FW190 crashed into me and I blew up but he got no damage and managed to shot down another plane a few seconds later... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Online in my 3-team server set when I try to hunt down a vulching 262 and the other (enemy) team jumps me just before I close on the 262 vulching their base.

Why - It takes a long time and a lot of strategic turns to catch up with a 262 only to have to break off and lose an enemy or get shot down by them.

It can be a little annoying.
