I'm just wondering how realistic is the flying in the film the battle of britain, is this how they really attacked the Heinkells?

Erm, to original question, the movie misses guncam takes but approaches are from side slips to frontal, may be correct whereas one of our heroes gets his nose bleeding while closing in from six, ending up to a greenhouse with his chute.
However, in IL-2FB, attacking a Heinkel (from even de-cloaking position from hyperspace) is very nasty experience as the sniper sitting there with his MG knows where is the middle spot of your forehead.
He111 could sustain a lot of damage especially from .303 calibre, though.

Seems to be "Dakka dakka dakka" to me as well - which would also go along with the phrase "handing out some dakka".

I always thought he (they) were saying

"Attack Attack Attack Attack Attack Attack"


Which ends up sounding more like

"katak katak katak katak katak katak katak "

What the Captain means is; "While I'm quite sure the acting and all is quite extraodinary, you will learn little of historical signifigance, especially as pertains to the deployment of fighter aircraft, from this movie" (same goes for the vast majority of 'Hollywood' war films)

This is the best movie I've seen about WWII air combat. Although they had to cram the whole thing into about 2 hours things are pretty much dead on accurate as compared to the detailed history books. Often you have to glaze over the details but its been done right I think.

Initial RAF tactics for attacking bombers was to fly straight in with the guns convergence at 600 yards or so and the fighters would hit the bombers with a wall of .303. That didn't work so well because the .303 was nearly useless against modern 1940s aircraft design (would have been fine for the 20s perhaps) so pilots quickly learned to attack from the sides or from above. In the one scene in Battle of Britain where the Spitfires hit the formation of un-escorted Heinkels...that was pretty much what the RAF squadrons were doing by middle of the battle.

S. All Gents.
I supose the movie its no far from reality.
The film staff was adviced by Galland and the "buchones" (bf109 with RR engine builded in Spain) were piloted by spanish airforce pilots.

Give me a little help with translation and I'm sure we may find some common ground for discussion.
