Just wondering if it was, and if dumping your ammo while limping home would be a good thing to do. (If the aircraft was too crippled to be able to fight should you come across something)

I know it is modelled into the ballistics but I dont know about the plane itself.. at least not bullets. Bombs defionitely are. Drop those puppies before you land.

I wondered about this. Like Bearcat says, I know it is modeled for ballistics, but not sure about in A/C. Good question, anyone know?

I believe ammo weight is modeled and goes down as you fire.

Yes it is. Dispensing all of your ammo will make a difference in the performance of your airplane; although it maybe minimal. Most of the performance difference will result from fuel, and of course, rockets and bombs that may cause you to explode upon a bad landing.

Is it also modeled in terms of energy received by the plane that gets hit? I mean shaking and kicking the target out of balance, rather than inflicting damage.

YES

defenitly, if your flying say a yak and you recieve a hit from a FW on your wing and you remain airborne you'll "feel" the hit and if you are at low speeds doing a turn you'll most likly be spun out of controle.

So it is

It sounds like a classic game of air-quake!?

Ah, the detail level of this sim! M$ should not be worried by the fact that FB has the advantage over CFS3. They should rather be worried by the size of that advantage!

I have been flying the Hurri MkIIC lately, and with one cannon out, oyu can feel a yawing as you firing the remaing guns...missed a few kills that way, too!....and I have also had both guns on one wing jam, too, and the yaw from that was quite pronounced!...almost spun me out, in fact

I also think we should be able to clear the jams in the 7.7mm's in the zeros, as the breeches protrude into cockpit, and this is historically accurate

There are currently no jams in FB.

When you get the message "weapon jammed" it is because the weapon was hit and destroyed.

Definitely! Everytime I'm full of lead, I reeeally feel the weight! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
