I'm a noob to the IL2 world and I ran out to buy it after seeing all these cool videos everyone is making. I started the campaign as Russia as a I-16 24 pilot and have yet to get a kill after a few missions. Probably because I need a new joystick. =)

But during my 2nd mission I was lining up a shot and my wingman started laying into my target and I flew right in front of his bullets. Well you know what happens next. Odd thing is my Ally filled my plane full of holes for about 1-2 seconds and all of a sudden my screen went red. I mean really red... not negative G red but a kind of I'm really wounded red. So I thought that was cool but wasn't sure how wounded I was.

I'm guessing the more red the screen, the more wounded you are? I ended up trying to crash land and failed and died.

But it was fun... I'm just curious if I really was wounded or theres something else I'm missing. And if I was wounded... is there any indication if I'm going to bleed to death?

Very cool game and thanks in advance...

Yes. That is the way a "wounded pilot" is modeled. The more the red obscures your vision, the more wounded you are. If your screen goes black, you die. It's a fairly convenient way of doing it, and somewhat convincing.

Yup, the more wounded you are, the redder the screen gets.

The more wounded, the harder it is to control the plane. Basically, the amount of stick and rudder force you can exert is reduced, so you can't roll, pitch, or yaw as well.

You won't bleed to death, but if you get injured too much, you will become a sitting duck for the enemy.

Not true.

Just a couple days ago I was flying offline and an enemy plane got on my tail and shot me up. My view went slightly red, so I throttled back, pitched down and headed for the nearby airstrip. As I descended, my view got redder and redder, and darker and darker, till finally my pilot blacked out and died about 500 feet off the ground, to crash.

I've only had it happen once in a year of flying, but it does happen.

I second that, a few of my pilots bleed to death while RTB after a long mission that was pretty far. Even happend to me in 110, you just dont see this much online because human players prefer to blow you to pieces, but it does happen.http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I know this sounds ridiculous, but is there any chance that you could have pitched down too hard, thereby making your pilot red out in addition to being wounded? I know that if you do it hard and long enough, the redout turns to a quick blackout, only without the tunnelling.

I've also had the misfortune of bleeding out on my back to base. It was a big let down to be so close to safetly after fighting my wounds and a battered plane back to base only to die and crash, but I admit it was a very neat experience!

Your probably had a fire. You can burn to death pretty quickly. I don't think that worseing injuries are modeled.

Try getting a fuel leak in the Me163. You go from pink to red to black pretty quickly. You don't want that fuel on your pilot.

i cant think of a more horrible way to die, getting melted by caustic fuel while trapped in a pod shaped flying firework. even drowning seems preferable.

Maybe that's why pilots carried sidearms.

This needs an answer... let's all try to get shot and see if you can bleed to death. Just check that you're not on fire http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif All this IN game of course.

There is no bleeding to death in this game. At least not in my version of game http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif. I've finished a lot of missions wounded (Player:Wounded or Player:Heavily wounded) and I've got over 45 min. of flying time in that missions. If u see your screen goes more and more dark red then your engine is on fire and you have to bail out otherwise you're going to heaven (or maybe... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/icon_twisted.gif). Many times if your A/C get riddled with bullets in engine or fuel tanks area start to emit smoke (black or white). For some time. After that sometimes engine just cuts out, sometime it caught fire (heavily depends on your specific A/C and the amount of damage). That is your explanation. Funny thing is when ur landing if u get upside down in the process, after a while screen goes red more and more but you do not die. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I have never experience bleeding to death in this game, and I have over 500 finished offline missions with various A/C's. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/354.gif

I HAVE bled to death(or almost) in this game quite a few times. The screen goes from a lighter red and gradually gets darker and darker. Not always though, sometimes I only get a wounded red and stay that way, but it is entirley possible to die from bleeding to death.

You are absolutely sure you wern't on fire?

Every time my pilot has been shot, and that is a lot, he has never bled. It only happens when I'm on fire.

Keep in mind, sometimes the fire will go out after you bail.
