Well I'm a bit puzzled over this... how come that this Heinkel exploded so violently in mid air. It is so rare situation in game for enemy fighter to explode after being hit with MGs let alone big bomber.

Event in question is on around 4th minute of the track.

He has seen the other "1 vs. many" tracks you posted here and at CWOS, and wants no part of you.

Direct hit by AAA to the bomb bay, perhaps. It's happened before...

So if it is possible to "activate" bombload inside bomber I guess (hypothetically) that we can hit bombs with guns in mid air too? BTW it is possible to destroy an airplane with bombs in mid air (funny stuff if you hit airplane in air with bomb with delayed fuse, he'll go off not immediatelly but after a few moments. Also it seems that airplane just soaks delayed bomb up because he took no apparent damage from bomb hitting him before explosion).

Also I've checked the link and it works (it works for me). Maybe right click on link and seletc "save as..." if left click wont do.

Set up a Pe-8 with a FAB 5000 and shoot where the bomb bay is. You will see, that you can eventually bombs accidentally http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

This happened to me just last night.

Was flying a B25 over a target with loads of flak, seriously loads.

All of a sudden I blew up in mid air.

I guessed an 88 hit to the bombload, but someone said that couldnt happen in the game.

It wasnt a plane to plane kill as I didnt get the 'Xiola has been destroyed by *****' message. Just 'Xiola has been killed'.

There uis a slight chance I hit a ballon cable, but I didnt see it.

Back from the original IL-2 days I found that if you attack an He-111 and swoop underneath and then fire into the wing root you can get it to explode even with the twin 12.7mm guns of a Mig-3. I am guessing that there is a fuel tank modelled there?

Bombloads do blow up mid air. So you probably did just that.

Xiola, you can always check the eventlog file on your pc to see what exactly happened. Or maybe you can check the stats page. Possibly this one? (http://www.il2hq.com/scstats2/il2sc_stat/index.php?navigation=sortie/162/18219/index.html)

But I had a nice incident the other day, where I blew up a P-40 with a P-40E with just 5 hits. Had it fly through my short burst and it blew up. It did not carry a bomb. How did that happen?

Yes that must be the one I think, it looks like there was a tiny bit of my plane left, as it was destroyed later, it was one of the those 'fireballs' I think.

The P40 has me stumped, in real life it could be the ammo load or fuel tank, but in the game who knows?

I love how this game has these freak occurances, just like real life.

Its one of the things that makes this game stand out as 'not just a computer game'

I did that too but I use 4 Pe-8s with FAB 5000, I was in an ME-262, I was also tring to hit the bombs.
Suffice to say I did hit the bomb bay, the whole screen went red, yellow and orange then I blew up with them. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif
