I think that there's a definite language barrier here.

I do not understand. Could you ask the question in a different manner?

do I hear the echoes of the days of '39? ~Clash

You can shoot ships with machine gun fire and cannons, but it probably wont do much.

Of course, Oleg never said you were not allowed to sink ships with a machine gun, so maybe theres a cheat floating (pardon pun) around.

Yes you can.

It just doesn't do any good though. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

If you want to sink ships the only way I've found is bombs and torpedos.

The problem is that to get good aim you have to stay in "one place" (diving w/bombs or straight & level for torpedo planes) just long enough to get blown to smithereens by the oh so accurate ship gunners. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Most of the real footage I've seen shows tons-o-ammo in the air but most planes seemed to get through. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif

But it fun trying! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

you can't even sink a submarine with the 40++mm gun from yak9k, but can with rockets and flying into ship/sub with 1 ton of exploseves makes no damage to it either.

If you attack a small ship with the Ju-87G you can sink it with guns alone.

yeah you can kill it with gunfire.
but its, well, unrealistic (at least with calibres below 30mm), and in FB not very effective.

i mean, you can kill it in FB with gunfire.
