Yes I'm sure /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I once did a head on with a Pe8... after being riddled with cannon fire it released its bombs..... I missed them by about 2 metres as I passed under the bomber.

There is a funny track somewhere where a guy torpedos a Me-323 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif



"As weaponry, both were good, but in far different ways from each other. In a nutshell, I describe it this way: if the FW 190 was a sabre, the 109 was a florett, or foil, like that used in the precision art of fencing." - Gunther Rall

In the original IL2 I dropped AJ2 cassettes on an approaching 109. Quite effective.

A few years back (before I ever got into IL2 or even EAW), I read a book about the career of a German fighter pilot blah, blah, anyway, by its end he was part of a squad trying to halt the numerous bombing attacks of b17s.

His idea was for the whole of his flying squad to carry bombs, fly above the B17s and bomb them! I remember he had some success...

Perhaps someone knows more on the bomb dropping thing?

Seems like I tried this in the original IL2, and the bomb would hit the plane, then explode after the delay, but behind the plane in space where the impact happened. Not sure though, been a while.

Speaking of this, I was nealy hit by falling bombs just today in the USAAF campaign, missed by 50 feet or so I'd guess. I'd chased a fighter down on the deck, and mindlessly into harms way! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
