That's a pretty cool trick. I've not tried it myself but I recall talk of it being possible to do in the game (although not easy-- if your wingtip touches the fuselage of the V1, an automatic explosion is triggered).

There was a track that is included with the game of a P-51 knocking over a V-1 using this method.

Let me explain, Oleg gave me a go when demo'ing it at a show and lead me through tipping one over before the game was finished or released...... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have a movie from, I think the name is Maximum Bob, about Mitchell and the Spit, an excellent movie by the way, with very nicely done scenes and superb sound, and it showed a spit tipping over a V1 rocket! Mmmmmm, a might just have another look at it now that I remembered it!

The Final Countdown.

A classic - I love the moment when you see the F14 stall over the wing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

IRL they didn't touch wings but used airflow over the wing.
IRL "at least 3" V-1's were downed that way while by AC guns, over 800 were.
Set convergence 300 meters should be safe.

They actually did both. Although the wingtip tipping technique was far more succesful than disrupting the airflow. Whatever it took to knock the V1 out of the Sky.

Plenty of aircraft returned with damaged wingtips.
