So I was flying a TB-3 over an enemy airbase. My tail got blown off by a succession of flak hits, so I bailed out as my plane spiraled downward. As my parachuting pilot neared the ground, I saw tracers fly at me from the ground. I was ripped to shreds, as was my parachute. I kept watching, and the AI anti-aircraft gunners cleanly picked off crewmember after crewmember as we parachuted in. None made it to the ground alive.

Has anyone else ever seen this?

wish I could shoot that well. They are also good at suckering you too. I hit a Russian train and thought I took out the AA car cause it quit shooting. I made a second pass & kept going and heard a couple of shots followed by a loud bang. Windscreen covered in oil & a smoking engine which locked up before I got back to friendly turf. Haven't been chewed up in a parachute yet.

I have been shot down all the time in my chute by naval AAA.I have yet to make it to the ground if I am within range.

I once, to test this out, made a mission with dozens of flak cannons of all kinds, and dozens of C-47s loaded with paratroopers.

In this game, every single anti-aircraft gunner apparently communes with demons.

You've never been shot down in your parachute by flak? Then you've never bailed out near flak. I've never once survived bailing out near flak. It's been my second biggest gripe about the bailing out system, right before not being able to open your chute manually like you would have to in real life, and right after the pilot dying from falls that I've taken in real life with no injuries whatsoever.

Yes, - never survived a bailout near flak!
I don't believe, that Oleg has programmed flak or backgunners in AI-Bombers that hard.
The AI has trained their skills themselves http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gifby shooting down parachutes...

I guess it's just their revenge for being a common target in the game.

Fly friendly!
