Hi, I only delivered the final blow and I think the chap's server was C6_Peri0 or something.

I dropped 2x 1000lbs bombs from my trusty P38L http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Congrats.

What is the flak like from those carriers?

Starting from 3-4 km I estimate, the long distance flak starts, they are dodgeable. Just don't come down from 5 km straight down, because chances are you will get hit by it.

The short distance AAA is another story. I think it starts at about 1 km distance. You need to be carefull, dodging all the way you approach the carrier, or by coming in in an odd vector.

Succes-rate of hitting the carrier with your payload is 50% (estimated, and applies to me, possibly not you ;p). Getting away alive after a hit (or nearmiss) is another story altogether http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now to come and think of it, I made several runs , maybe 10 or so. And none of which I could escape with my life. One funny reason for that, is that on one occasion, I mixed up 2 buttons, namely the 'lower gear' button ('G') and 'fold wings' ('H' for me) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif I hope (but am confident) none of the REAL pilots made that mixup ;p
