Tonight I was in a coop with my squadmates.. We were attacking an airfield which was heavily defended by flak & 109s.... On the outskirts of the airfield a 109 was attacking one of my AI squadmates so I went after him. I popped a few short bursts into him as he started to jink and try to evade me. I was on him pretty tight...a little too tight in fact...he slowed down by spiraling and I dropped flaps and pitch and climbed to bleed some speed..... the timing was perfect and I probably couldnt duplicate it...but as I came on him I hit my externals to see just how close I was to him.... (I like those flybys of real tight flying../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) .....anyway at that precise moment...my wingtip bumped his wing, between the center and the wing root...maybe it was weakened by my fire...I was peppering him up pretty good...but his wing fell off..... it just broke off....I was amazed that I didnt loose mine as well but when I thought about the angle I could see why...and the fact that I was in a JUG...much sturdier.... didnt hurt. This sim still wows me... I know there are issues but I have never been so impressed with a comercial product in my life. I think this was the best $39 bucks I have ever spent in my life and if I could get the same quality/value to dollar ratio for just 50% of the things i spend my money on......umph...umph...umph.....
Some of us complain and cry and moan but lets face it guys.......there isnt a better sim out there and even out of the box..we got a great deal....

I absolutely agree. Very few games, if any, can match IL-2 for the $/fun ratio. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
