For once id like tanks to try to engage my with their machine guns. Just once. Please?

Seriously the commanders MG should be used by tanks to try abd engage low level aircraft. It would be so much more interesting if the 'golden BB' element were added when attacking a tank column

Seriously, I had been blasted into pieces by a tank's main gun when I was trying to skip-bomb it... but it is in BattleField 1942, haha

They're a lot less accurate than they used to be, it seemed like every second mission with tanks in it you'd get:

{0} has been blown with a tank''s main gun.

d00d, you should have so killed that tiger with your 50 calibre machine guns.

What were you thinking of? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I got hit once in an IL-2 at extremely close range. So close I'm not sure the shell had even armed yet, or I just got really lucky.

So far as I could tell, it skipped off the top of the nose of my IL-2 without exploding, managing somehow to miss the prop, the engine, the cockpit and anything else critical. As far as damage goes, it only tore up the cowling in front of the windscreen.

Even though it didn't explode, it nearly brought me down anyway, as the IL-2 was instantly yawed about 85 degrees to the right. It didn't change my direction of flight, just the way my nose was pointed. On the upside, this kicked me around so far that I was able to strafe and destroy several targets on the side road while I was trying to keep the plane in the air.

I kicked in full left rudder and almost full right aileron to try and bring the nose around and counteract the roll from the rudder, since I was only at 15 or 20' AGL at that point. I was surprised I didn't crash into the tanks.

I managed to get the pointy end facing forward again and climbed out and away, and then spent a good 20-30 seconds checking my plane for damage, since I was convinced it should have some huge hole in it someplace. Aside from the bent cowl panel, it was fine though.

Somewhere I've still got a .trk file of it.

Some mobile aaa are listed as tanks. Your not getting hit by a tiger tank's main gun but instead with armored aaa.

Did anyone see that or was it just me?

I guess it's still better than having your wing bitten off by a tiger, but maybe that's just me.

I wish MY shooting skills were that good. I hit a convoy in a 190 and took one right between the wings angling into the engine. One minute everything was fine, the next my plane exploded. I saved & replayed the track in slo-mo and got the surprise.

Question: Did you back-up your files?

This happened in real life. But I wish they would make it random, like only 1% chance of tank deciding to fire on airplane.

Then there was the Romanian infantry officer turned fighter pilot who commanded a Fb109 squadron and he used his infantry training to think of propping up Fb109 tail with a barrel and use it to shoot Russian tanks trying to overrun airfield. That would be cool to do.

You think the tank gunners got mad skills? Fly head on in an He-111 or IL2 against the Tirpitz. If you're the largest target, All the 18'' guns pointing at you will fire at you, and you will wake up with a giant back pain in the morning, presuming you make it out alive.
