Hi & welcome to the forum http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I've been flying in this sim since it came out - an IL2 Sturmovik veteran - and I've never stopped seeing new stuff.

Just last night I was flying an old coop mission and happened on a group of U2VS flying to bomb our airfield. (That's an old Russki biplane if you're PF only) I held my fire until I was 60 feet away and let loose a burst of m/g, aimed at the cockpit. The tracers hit the engine compartment first and brought out a huge billow of oil smoke. That, for me, was the first time in hundreds of attacks that it's happened. I guess I never hit the magic spot before.

Have you dived in for a pass on a vehicle convoy yet and seen all the little people running from the vehicles - before you've even pressed the trigger? It's magic stuff like that gets you hooked!

Enjoy yourself,

B.

You might have exploded the plane you were shooting at, which caused damage to the other two planes, causing them to explode as well.

I've seen that a lot when small bombers are flying in formation.

Or, you might have detonated the bomb load on that one. I don't know it it's possible with torpedos, but it may be.

this reminds me of something that happened once and only once ,I got shot all to heck in a b-25 and bailed and then my planed hurdled straight to the ground . When it impacted it said fuel tank on fire and all that stuff and then bomb load detonated I've never seen it say bomb load detonated since that , has anyone else?

slo- YES!

maybe 2 months ago I was taking off in a Do-335 with a heavy load (biggest the Dornier holds, think SC1000s)
well, I taxied.... avoided collisions and pulled on to airfield. I gave my engines full throttle and I was strafed from a plane that was too low. After rolling 15 feet from the strafing spot I saw the message Bombloadhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gifetonated while my bombload detonated... strange, was pretty funny at the time.
