S!,
Is it just me or has the fw190a5 been castrated? I feel like I'm flying the old POS from the original IL2 v1.0. I just got myself schooled by a fine pilot. I don't have a problem w/ getting beat by a fine pilot. Heck, I enjoy the challenge. However, I wonder what the heck is going on to cause the A5 to lose its reticule w/ a single hit of MGs nearly everytime. I lost my reticule 4x in a row during high speed deflection shots by my opponent. Another gripe is the over abundance of Pilot Kills occurring in the A5 now...ala IL2 v1.0. I encountered 4x PKs tonight...I guess I had to keep it even w/ the shot out reticules? So what exactly happened w/ this so called advance DM of the FW? You can still fill the fuselage full of lead and the FW keeps flying. Aim at the wings and they snap right off. Fart in the direction of the FW and the reticule is busted and the pilot is killed. Let's observe 2 minutes of silence for the once deadly, well armored A5...RIP.

Rant over.

PS, just for curiosity's sake, Is anyone else experiencing the same thing in the A4/A5?

The reticle bug is very annoying...I agree. Thats a bug to be worked out. The rest of the DM seems to be quite fine. I've hammered away at the A-5 before she went down. The DM is certainly more advanced...I haven't been PK'ed yet but thats something that happens quite frequently to me in others such as the P-47. Quite annoying...

The Fw190 gunsight breakage is a known bug and will be fixed. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif The new DM for the 190 is great! It's still a tough plane but, takes damage in the same fasion as other a/c now.

The PK thing has always been an issue in the 190. I think it's a result of the 190's high roll-rate. As a defensive move you quickly roll to one side and pull back on the stick to enter a scissors move. As you roll and pull back on the stick, the top of the canopy is exposed and there is a good chance for a PK. I don't think this is a bug, just a hazard of performing this maneuver.
