I was in a co-op mission flying the He 162 jet when my engine was hit. I had downed a couple of bombers.

I shut down the engine and was able to glide to the nearest base and land. Not too easy to do but somehow managed it.

I was sat on the runway for some time whilst the battle raged overhead.

The engine was smouldering so I thought it would be a good idea to leave the aircraft and head for the bar for a well earned beer.

I forgot that the He 162 has an ejector seat! I was thrown about 20 feet into the air and Avro was medically dead as soon as his seat hit the ground.

So,if you land in this plane you are trapped forever!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Try taxiing of the runway and on to the grass. Might be a softer place to eject. Then again, you may never stop bouncing. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Don't ever bail if you want all your points and you're on the airbase, even if your wreck is burning. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Hi,

The solution is hidden on the second to last page of the PF manual.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Change your pilot's name to John McLane and you will always be able to eject from an He162 without injury </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

It also said something about hand grenades but I never got to the bottom of that.

Ta,

Hmmm. I thought this was fixed in the latest patches. Ah, whatever, it's still fun as hell.

He-162 does not have a zero/zero seat. So, if you eject at zero altitude with zero airspeed, it will flip you over and land you on your head, thus killing you.

What you're hinting at wanting is a "pilot exiting the plane" option to be added to the eject/jump option.

In all other planes it's not needed as a 4' belly flop won't kill you......However it is the same for all planes as if you jump with the plane 20' above the ground you'd die.

So that leaves 2 options.......
1. Have 1C make an entirely new command and add it in to the sim (which I suppose they could make for all planes it then not counting as a bailout/loss....)
2. Bail out at a reasonable altitude if hit losing the plane.

I'd not plan on option 1 in this series yet might be worth asking for it in BoB.

I don't think you can taxi the 162 on the skid, can you?

When u crash land, What would be nice is if the pilot could climb out of the A/C as opposed to jumping out with arms up in the air. For Water landings give pilots a fishing pole for those long days at sea http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
