I was on the TX-OC3 server and was flying a Fw190 a9 with 50% fuel and mk 108s cannons. I saw 2 Pe8s quite close together and went to engange. Obviously attack from behind is suicde. So i tryed from every other angle, and it was VERY hard. The other pe8 kept on shooting me which put me off protecting the other one and the same the other way round. It was virtually impossible. After a while i managed to blow some elevators off one and it went down and i got help to take out the other. But imagine 5 pe8s all squaded together. IMHO 7 A9's vs 5 Pe8's, ill bet on the Pe8's winning

(agreed, and must add that Pe-2 and Pe-8 are made of granite)

Do you speak of FB1.0 Pe8s with snipers boarded or the FB1.1b Pe8?

I will down ANY Pe8 on the first or second attack with an FW190A9. No bs. Just aim for the wings.

This is the exactly type of scenario we would love to see on the TX-OC3....a combined coordinated attack with bombers aloft and fighters supporting the bombers... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif S~~

Thanks for flying the friendly TX skies /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Yeah, but he's talking about Pe8s flying in formation, not a solo Pe8.

I've taken on two He111s in close formation and the same thing happened. Killed one with but the 190a9 was too banged up and low on ammo to close the deal on number two.

Are the flyable AI aircraft on servers given "Ace" level AI? I went after a Pe-8 on the TX server last week and it seemed to be shooting at a far higher skill level than your typical offline AI. Literally blew my 190 to pieces during my first fast beam attack. Pe-8s are dangerous, but I had never encountered defensive fire like that before offline.

Nothing better than loading up a wing of PE-8-s with ordinance and flying in formation...using the combined gunners to take out any fighters that you encounter en-route...and blowing a base to smithereens!

the Pe8 has snipers two specially as you say in a fly of two. i take donw two using a K4 but i to buit up a speed of 700 KM/H and aim to the wings and fuselage junction, if you come to them with less speed the guners will got you.... so built up altitud over them firts...

I love taking Pe-8's up on TX-OC3. Its my fave stomping ground! One thing, anyone notice the wing gunners dont fire anymore? Just the tail and top fires, and also the chin. I will check it out tonight. Well flown P-39's and any FW A series is the only thing I fear in a Pe-8. I cant wait for a B-17! That will be painful for anyone to attack!

You attacked a pair of bombers bristling with guns with a single fighter aircraft? I can't say whether or not the Pe-8s are too tough, but I imagine if you attacked any two large, reasonably well defended bombers with one fighter you'd be asking for trouble.
