Russian 12.7mm Heavy Machine Gun!!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now and then someone in the firearm community daydreams about introducing 12.7mm to the U.S. consumer market. They often think it would compete with the .50bmg cartridge. And it would, were it not for the costs involved.

A chicken/egg scenario exists. Nobody wants to buy an expensive gun if ammo isn't readily available. And the businessmen don't want to provide ammo for guns that don't exist. Decent quality .50bmg is $1.25 USD, and that's the cheap stuff!

The market for such leviathans is fairly small anyway. The 12.7mm will likely remain the sole domain of history buffs and hobbyists with well developed reloading and machining skills.

Look at all those ricochets that I have been talking about that you regularly see at the range. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Tell Luthier that bullets really do bounce off the ground since he said they did NOT in the MP interview. This is what I have been trying to say all along. Let's get BoB as realistic as possible.

If this is the same type of gun fitted on the migs and yaks in il2 why does it not show the same effect.

The readme says a 2-3 second burst should bring a german plane down with the 12.7mm and i shoot at the engine of a me 109 for 5 seconds and all i see is a oil trail.

If you've got any accuracy at all, a 3 second burst will explode a 109. On average 2-3 hits will stop or flame the engine.

I second this, and as a Red flyer, too. The trick is to get those bullets in where they make a difference http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Wouldn't a parking ticket have been more appropriate? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif
