the engines on the pe-2 are wayy to reistant.
in was in me-109e4 right on the pe-2's tail.
i put the game on slo-mo and fired away. i know i fired at least 6 seconds worth of machine gun into the rear of the engine. maybe a bit less. then i get light grey smoke. i fire a little bit more and then black smoke.
when i put arcade mode on, all i could see were arrows comming through the engine. too many to believe
its either the 109's guns or the engines.. i think its the engines though.
i have a pic and track of it.

how do you post pics?

If you believe it is a bug, send the pic along with a bug report as per the instructions in the 1.1b readme file.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Posting possible 'bugs' lets other people know and they can also check if what has been stated can be repeated.

Probably a waste of time. This has been reported hundreds of times since IL-2 days. There are many problems with the Pe-2 and Pe-3 damage models and have been as long as I can remember. Wouldn't hold my breath on them ever being fixed.

To be honest I've never noticed this bug - their engines fall off just fine in any kind of angles based attack. If you're shooting them from dead 6 ... you shouldn't be doing that anyway :>

This is definitely a DM error. You can fill a Pe-2 engine with the whole MG load of a G2, and have better chances to sever the wing or the engine, instead of smoking it on the first hits.

Ive smoked a Pe2 engine in one burst from an F4. I was coming in at about 600kph and at an above angle so that might help. Are you guys sure you are hitting the engine and not the rudder?

That just confirms my earlier suspicion.

Don't attack them from behind.

Seriously, if you have even 10 degrees off angle - attacking from above or below - their engines fall off and flame out just fine.

Attacking bombers from the rear, where all their defensive armament was pointed, is not a good idea, and you shouldn't be attacking from there anyhow.

It's sort of like if someone posted that there was a bug causing ships not to take torpedo damage from 12 or 6 o clock - that's nice dear, but you should be aiming them broadside :>
