Kill it, v2.

Looks like under wing rads.. Bf109, late G model I would guess. One bullet will kill the DB engine.. spray and pray away!

I'm guessing Spitfire here, or at least a friendly. Wings too long for 190, though it may be a Messer. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
def not a 190,

I'd say probably messer, but I'd get closer.

What are you doing fireing a browning at .75 km, anywho?

Looks like a Spitfire to me. Well Easy to find out.
Give him a short squirt:
- If it lets out a thick trail of smoke and catches fire soon afterwards it's a 109
- If it leaves a thin trail of smoke and crashes 90 secs later without fuel it's a 190
- If it continues to fly straight and level it's a Spitfire and he didn't even notice being hit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i'd bet on the Spit.. the wings seem to be slightly cuvred upwards, and the radiators under the wings leave liitle room for doubt, but who shoots at that distance?

04-07-2005, 04:54 AM
Friend me thinks.

04-07-2005, 05:11 AM
Spitfire. The elevators are too low to be a 109.

04-07-2005, 05:12 AM
Looks like a FW D9 or a Spit, but can't tell, difficult angle.

04-07-2005, 05:35 AM
I'd get close anyways, way too far away to think you can even scratch it with .50's.

I think its friendly though..

04-07-2005, 05:44 AM
looks like a mustang to me, I'd shoot over his shoulder to make him turn to get a better look.

From a distance the 109 spit mustang all look slightly similiar

04-07-2005, 08:12 AM
Don't shoot.

04-07-2005, 09:28 AM

04-07-2005, 09:39 AM
It's a Mustang - don't shoot

04-07-2005, 09:56 AM
You must be one h*ll of a shot to be even thinking about it at that distance. Get closer dude.

04-07-2005, 11:19 AM
Shoot first, check wreckage later.

04-07-2005, 12:38 PM
Looks like a Spitfire. However, the correct answer is to get closer.

0.75 is both too far away to ID and too far away to fire effectively.

04-07-2005, 01:13 PM
I agree - Too far away - hold fire

04-07-2005, 02:05 PM
ANSWER: Dont shoot. It's a Spitfire. RAf markings

RAF markings? Spit? All I see is a pepper speck

04-07-2005, 10:26 PM
you cant tell it has markings from the screenshot , & in locked pit you shouldnt ever fire untill you can ID anyway

Correct answer is "what plane?"

Never comes up anything on these "Friend or Foe" links.

Anyway, on warclouds there is icons, that ruins this sport. Also is hard to hide when you have this big letters following you ;-)

When i was playing with some few friends, I learned to easily spot who was flying by the style of it. On servers with no icons or out of icon range you can still tell a lot by the way the dots are moving.

To hijack this thread:

Wouldnâ´t it been a good idea for the Germans to have a version of the 109 quite similar to the P-51. They had this order anyway to attack the bombers. This could give confusion for the bombers who were friendly or not and make the life of the P-51 pilots harder. Of course, a quick shift to p-38 would fix that problem. Wonder if this was considered as an idea. The germans shouldnt dogfight the p-51 anyway and wouldnt have the same problem as their counterpart (until they should land on their own field :-) )
