The mustang engine doesnt seem to durable, took a quick mission flight, 4 109 F2, the one with 15 mm mg, and 4 mustangs, i managed to get one hit from above at the engine, ap round without tracer, the engine bursted into flames, saved a track of it =)

I think they coded the mustand so that it would not take as much battle damage as u might expect. apparently one disadvantage of the mustang was that it couldnt take much damage

The P-51 sucks. Fly a mans plane, fly the P-47/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif .

Well I dont think it sucks Shifty seeing how its not even flyable yet. You cant base the FM on a AI plane.


As for the engine. 1 HIT!!! is all it took. Do some research and you will discover that the engine was very fragile and 1 round from a small caliber mg could send her to the deck. Sad I know but true nontheless.

Take it this is the pre-merlin Mustang then?

Dodgy yank engines, slap a roller in it and it'll be fine. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Does this mean the spitfire was fragile too? (they both had the merlin/griffon engines)

Even if u read the IL-2 Sturmovik data on the homepage about p51d, it states the plane could be brought down by damage that would not effect other planes. The p51 motor was known to take a single hit and she was out of action, and havok is right you cant base this off a AI plane, its modeling might not be completed yet.

It's not that the engine or the plane couldn't take damage. It was that it was water cooled. It could take as much damage as a spits engine. It was the placement of the radiator. One hit to the radiator or a coolent line and it was done. That why the lone magic bullet brings down planes it's the placement of the the bullet also.

Sorry if I didn't make this clear enough but I was just playin around, the P-51 won't suck, and it doesn't suck right now.

There were about 10 places onthe Pony that a single rifle calibre bullet could cause it to sieze up in about 10 minutes. The trick was to hit it... It was a very maneuverable plane and the AI wont fly it like a real pilot would so dont go by that.
