.. it can be realyl dumb at times (smart at others) but ..

ex: load up a campaign mission w/ say a bunch of LA-7's .. tell them to form on your wing , loose formation and try some medium rate turns

they will turn w/ rudder .. not aileron/elevator... dumb!!

.. and when you're part of a larger squad.. the AI fires off at 100% throttle 100% prop pitch zooming kilometers ahead of you .. the only way to catch up being turning inside their turns when they get to waypoints .. then the wingleader yells at you over the radio for breaking formation

GAH! .. how frustrating /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

thoughts? any other stupidities you've noticed?

How about when he yells at you for breaking formation when you're in the middle of a heated dogfight?

How about this: you fly an Il-2...the comrades are going back to the base without firing a shot (I got first to the target and cleaned the place) and of course, the escort are flying with them...so...I tangle with some Bf-109's when the frigin stupid call comes: "where the hell are you?etc, etc..."

And another one:
I am a polkovnik or Oberst, but for some funny reasons I am still not in comand of the squadron. I have all the medals, etc...so, a stupid lent-oberst or podpolkovnik YELLS AT ME for not stiking in his stupid formation! I have like 300 air victories and he has 4-6 or so...

Or the guy crying for help, when he's the pursuer! And if you ask him to help, he'll ignore you or even shoot at you! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

Or how if you turnfight AI planes at low altitude, they will oe by one crash into the ground.

Last night one of my AI "buddies" maneuvered himself into my tail completely destroying my tail-fin... he loses control and crashes, and [/i]I[/i] am "credited" with a friendly kill! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

I hate that. In particular when he yells in the same second you start moving away, without even moving more that a few yards. Also it is annoying when using a IL-2 and the gunman yells "Oh no!!" or something like that.

In the other hand, I love some of the screams of the germans and hungarian pilots when they go down. Something like an hysterical "Aaaaaaargh"... pretty cool.
