This is only slightly related. Furball with a Hurricane (field mod), and I shot his right aileron clean off. Y'know what? He STILL outturned me. Acted like it didn't even matter. Sorry to get off topic

Well, the topic is so lame it's hard to stay on it /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What we need are more "What's the Best?" or "What's the Fastest?" threads in this forum.

I once chopped a wing of a fighter with a p-47's tail section, losing the rudder and the upper tail. I tried to make a vertical turn and the bastard went to the ground with his tail! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I had my can of peaches taken out by a .50 caliber once. It was ugly.

You was out-turned or, out-rolled?

It is the lift vector, pointing sidewards, that makes the plane turn. The ailerons are there for rolling the planes in a certain direction. Shooting off an aileron wouldn't have much effect on turning.

I posted this before but it was cool. I flew right up to the tail of a Pe-2, I was so close that when I fired my 30mm cannon it exploded on his tail. The resulting explosion destroyed my engine and cockpit (filled with oil and holes), he simply flew away as I plummeted towards God's green earth. Heartbreaking to say the least. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

The loss of prop governer in Hurricane and the loss of throttle control in La-5/7 are both really cool to experience. I wish more planes had this modelled.

Hate to admit it but i've managed to get the top of my vertical stabilizer chopped off by the prop of a bomber I was trying to shoot down on several occasions. Sometimes i managed to land. Others well I worked on my sky diving.

It usually messes up the bomber pretty good.


I also really enjoy looking at the battering a Me323 can take from teh YAKT's 37mm cannon.

Earlier today, i was flying a P-40 for some unknown reason, and a BF109 made a head on pass at me. We hti, and i thought we had clipped each others wings. I turn on outside view and my entire upper tail section is gone, and one half of my elevator. But the P-40 kept on flying /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Shortly after i was hit with a m108 and exploded in a nice fireball
