When enemy plane loses fuel, it should be much easier to set it to fire - even with small MGs. It is not working in that way now. Is it possible to code the leaking fuel as "highly flammable"?

MG bullets are not explosive, so why should those set the fuel in flames?
And even if there is some explosion or something to ignite it, then you still need the right mixture of air and fuel...

MG tracer round passing through leaking fuel = Tracer(fire) through Fuel/Air mixture(leaking fuel in slipstream) = boom, time to bail out.

if you check the ammo types even for MG bullets, there are plenty of them of incendiary type.. and I believe in leaking tank the bullet explosion will find the proper fule/air ratio any time.

bullets are presumibly very hot indeed.

I don't think that actually happened. This isn't Die Hard 2 http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif While the vapours may explode, it'll be outside of the aircraft because there is no (or not much) air in the fuel tank, so there is not an explosion hazard. An external explosion won't do much. Just a small poof.

Explosion, possibly not. Massive fire engulfing the plane, i think so.
