So we loaded up a mission we have always flown wherin we attack a fleet of cruisers surrounding a battleship. Not only is the flak easier, it would appear that it intentionally misses you. We flew several other missions to test it and not once, did anyone get a ping from the AAA. There is no way you should be able to approach 10 warships and have every member of your flight survive without serious jinking.

Is there a way to turn it back on for those of us who actually appreciate hard flak?

The net result of all this, it would appear to me, is that those of us who have stayed out of the whine fest on these forums are going to have to jump in and start whining. Otherwise, before long this will be the same as FS2004

Imo you are partly right.. though adjusting the flak can be hard.. in Fb 1.0 Ship AA was able to hit you -from any distance and from any altitude.. I once did a test and flew at 9000 meters and oh boy Marat killed me with only a few flak shots /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Right now they seem pretty harmless.. I think there should be a line for flak perfomance.. like when flying closer than 500 meters from the ligth Flaks (26 mm and 37 mms) they should have higher chances of hitting you.. and when going away they should have lower chances of hitting you.. right now they just don't hit you /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif no matter how close you were..

And heavy flak.. there should not be only a one or two heavy flaks shooting at you, but instead whole batteries of heavy flaks shooting at you.. though we are approaching the game engine limits /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Well I sure like the flak in 1.1 better than in 1.0

If you fly low-level past the German ships on the Crimea QMB, they will rip the crap out of you. The Russian ships, otoh, are almost harmless.

Don't be so sure about the ship AAA. Try QMB Crimea and you'll soon cry. LOUD! Just give it a try.

I'll check that out.

Not sure if the ships in these missions are Russian or not but it sounds like they may be. They actually make a cone around you as you fly into the fleet lol. It's like being in star trek with a force field.
