For sheep and giggles, I showed FB/AEP/PF to a friend recently, and took to the skies in a Gladiator against two TB3s. Well, I got shot down after emptying all my guns into the bombers but waited to see what the bombers would do.
Well, one of them dived to near ground level, all of a sudden pulls up like there's no tomorrow, stalls, and... stands still in the air. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif
It stayed there for a minute or so and then proceeded to land as if nothing happened. I think I did an .ntrk of that one. Just thought I'd share the new uber-UFO, with Topper Harley as flight captain. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Good one! I've experienced some wird things with Ju 52s as well. I shoot one of its wings off, but he goes on as if nothing happened. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

That's not necessarily weird. I once got a wing shot off online in my Ki-84 and somehow managed to keep flying using full rudder/aileron/elevator. Couldn't turn or do anything but fly straight but it did get me accused of cheating http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif The guy figured I was dead with a wing missing so he disengaged. I just kept flying straight ahead.

(I eventually bailed out and crashed. Was losing speed and altitude slowly but steadily.)

More fun with TB-3's.....

DOGFIGHT with 'em.

TnB, (ever so slowly) BnZ (even more slowly)

Jump around and man all the guns as you try to wear each other out. LMAO

Great sport!

There was a server with a racetrack. My buddies and I raced TB3's through it, but although we could complete the track we couldn't quite reach the finishline. It was a bit of a climb, more than the TB3 could handle. Was loads of laughs though.

The TB3 is also a great weapon against vulchers. Time it right, with a full load of bombs, spawn and drop the bombs. Then everyone must respawn together. Talk about WMD's. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I find the TB3, also known in my neck of the woods as the "Super Space Defence Fortress Macross", to be more fun than an encore performance of the man who shoves weasles down his pants!

I cant remember which server i was flying on but i managed to bring down a 190 and two 109s while flying the jolly green giant. Manning all those gun turrets is just way too much fun to pass up, particularly if you have a small escort to keep most of the heat away from you.

I couldn't even find the target that i was supposed to be bombing but it didn't matter. All my green tracer fire brought the luftwaffles for mile around towards me, thinking a MAJOR dogfight was in occurence. I think I had at least a Yak and a Mig flying top cover and we all lasted for about 10 minutes, out numbered and under fire, with planes swirling all around us.

Personally I'd love to get three or four of them with humans at the controls and drive them through a dogfight, blasting everything left, right and centre.
