I downloaded the fleet air arm campaign.In the first mission I have to shoot down a Pe-8. I fire my machine guns at the Pe-8 for 20 seconds, I see my bullets hit (the sparks/small explosions on the plane). The gunner in the tail didn't die though he should be soaked with my bullets, and shoots me down. I quickly press Ctrl+F2 and don't see any damage?

Why is that?

Bad DM for the .303 machine guns?

Only a few shots hit?

Invincible enemy?

Try ramming next time /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif


Other than that, dunno. Ever tried to shoot down an Me-323 with a MKIIB? It's fun...

Try a head on, you may be able to kill the pilot and the gunners have less time to kill you.

Sad , isn'y it? The most vulnerable point of a Pe-8 is above. There's only one gunner , trick is to aim at the cockpit. Once everybody bailed out when i blasted the cockpit of a Pe-8 being in a P11. Don't , I repeat , don't attack from dead six. There are 4(FOUR) gunners waiting for you , you have less than 1% chance to survive if you are doing it this way. your best bet is to attack from above aiming for the cockpit or to come for a head on , especially in a hurri which has very weak armour.

Concentrate all firepower into one point(especially wing or engine), and you can see bomber's engine on fire or wing broken. To do it better, you should approach it to convergence distance of your gun. After several tries, I finally succeeded in that mission. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
