The helmet was designed in WWI by, you guessed it, the french.

No, it's modelled in a few others... Come to think of it i actually saw the ricochet effect occur on a 109G6 one time. I was shooting it with the .50's in a Mk IXe Spitfire, and a shot that hit right behind the cockpit made a big yellow spark and trailed off in the other direction. Thought it was strange, since I'd only seen it on Sturmoviks previously.

Yea, I too thought the ricochet only occurred with Sturmoviks, but was chasing down a 109 (dunno type, maybe A6?) and to my surprise some of my shots very near the cockpit rear were ricocheting off. My thoughts were, `cool! This plane is armoured well!`

Doesn`t happen often.

I think it happens on almost every plane. I had it on a 190, 109, P47 and i think i even had it happening on a Me163.

I've seen it off a FW-190 on a large angle shot, seemed to originate near the rear of the canopy around the pilot armor.

If you fly the Hurri often enough it will happen on quite a few of the planes when hitting with the 303's.

I would imagine this occured with both them and the 7.62's being such lite and fast rounds. I think its a completly cool effect.

Sure you don't mean .303s?

Jack-

Is your sig a joke or something? Surely you know the helmet was invented long before the 20th century.

I recall Hartmann mentioning something about 20mm rounds bouncing of IL-2s , Blond Knight of germany i think it was.

Kozhedub: In combat potential, the Yak-3, La-7 and La-9 fighters were indisputably superior to the Bf-109s and Fw-190s. But, as they say, no matter how good the violin may be, much depends on the violinist. I always felt respect for an enemy pilot whose plane I failed to down.

sure it was invented many many years ago..knights had helmets...vikings had helmets (without horns) but i dunno it was on the history channel like the ones they used in the trenches, perhaps they were the first capable of protecting you from an airburst shell or whatever because apparently up until that time they were using cloth helmets or something. mostly looking for an excuse to poke fun at the french

Because clearly, only a coward would want to wear a helmet when he was on the receiving end of an artillery barrage.

No, he means .50cal. He said it was an IXe. E type armament is 2 20mm and 2 .50cal.

Gee, my bullets bounce off every plane I shoot at.

Yes, I've had several types of bullets bounce off of my P-38. It's quite cool. Also, I've bounced bullets off of FW-190s more often than most aircraft. But I've never seen it with a BF-109 like many here have.

I can't say i've seen this happen, but possibly may it be attributed to the angle the round is hitting its target? rather than the amount of armour?
