S!

I've been playing FAA Iwojima campaign for some time and I noticed that every time AI pilots try to do a true head-on attack with 0? deflection (which happens from time to time) both planes always end up crashing into each other!

This has happened to me four or five times already . http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

After all those times you tried to protect your co-flyers and your wingman and save their asses, this makes me really mad http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Anyone else having these troubles?

Seen this...sometimes happens. Rarely but sometimes. Keep in mind that this DID happen during WWII. Collisions and terrible losses on both sides were not something that happened rarely...sometimes they would happen very frequently.

I take it as part of the "dramatic" appeal of the whole situation.

This drives me nuts.

well, they allways crash into each other when they're flying with ZERO deflection. Always.

I agree that crashes happened, in big battles maybe even frequently, but most of the time it was when neither of the pilots saw the other one and their flight paths intersected ...

When they see each other, the AI IMHO shouldn't play the chicken. Neither of them evades and they crash into each other EVERY TIME http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

So, it's not a simulation of real world crashes but rather an AI bug ...
