Whats so unusual?Kills can come in many different kinds...The flames or explosions arent necessary to down a plane .IL2 will go down eventually with one small mg bullet in back of radiator ...Spits and especially Hurricanes and Mustangs will have engine halt instantly with a single bullet also Mind you at one stage the P39D would fly on forever pouring smoke with no loss in performance !.A kill is a kill. S!

Yep see that semi-regularly... you hit the engine and it seized. Never happened to you before?

I've had it happen to Italian SM-79s over the Med in 4.09. For good reason, I was attacking in a P-38J. Hit the port engine and the prop stopped instantly.

It's completely normal, after all, all it takes is a piece of shrapnel getting stuck in the wrong place in the workings of the engine. Also happens very often on the Tempest, along with the aircraft ytareh mentioned.
