View Full Version : At what altitude will the Mistel have a good chance of hitting the target?

When joined with the FW190 and flak going off everywhere, what altitude is best to free the Mistel bomb? It seems that you need to get pretty darn close. Any thoughts?

Don't get too close, the blast is pretty strong.

It would be good to fly it online, for airfield attacks. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

I have always used about 1000mtrs above ground level for the start of my attack. Go into a slight mild dive, release no lower than 800mtrs, then get the hell turned around!! As high as 2000mtrs would work though.

It would totally rock to be able to [properly] use the Mistel in DF servers. Lots of servers allow the PE-8 and that doesn't seem to lower the quality of game play.

I wish the AI used the Mistel. Just one of the unique weapons (like the V1) which are great for Onliners, rubbish for offliners to use. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Actually, the Mistel is great fun offline too. The only bad thing is that the damage model do not allow you to go ship-hunting with it, which is what it was designed for in the first place.

Are there any records of the Germans using the Mistel successfully in an attack?? Did they ever use it or try to even use it??

The Germans used the Mistel to destroy a series of bridges to cover a retreat as the Russians closed in on a German SS unit (???). Seelow Heights comes to mind, but I could be completely wrong.

At least one was spotted over the Normandy DDay beachhead at night by a NF Mosquito & promptly dispatched!

when you fly a Mistel towards enemy bombers . . . . . . .

the hapless AI gunners cannot help themselves but to open fire . . . . . .

of course that MAY have undesirable results on the Mistel's inner packaging

which also MAY have undesirable follow on effects for the aformentioned bombers . . . .

I'm trying that when I get home.

There really should be a thread dedicated to imaginative ways to play this game.
