View Full Version : Something weird...

I have been reading a lot of post's on convergence, and I thought I would share a little something that I have not been able to figure out.

I set my convergence at 200m MG and 199.5 Cannon, but I typically shoot at targets that are anywhere from 100m up to 300m away (more often then not 250/300m away...I generally shoot at targets of opportunity).

I hit the fighters I aim at with mixed results(a little better then 50% http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif)
It seems my instincts (if any) on lead angles work best at the 250/300 meter range.

But if I set my convergence out to 250m or 300m my hit rate goes down...

If I leave my convergence at 200m and wait to shoot from 200'ish away my hit rate goes down...

If I set it at 100 meters I never really get (many) clean shots...

Is it my imagination or is their something I'm missing? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I have my convergence set to around 200-250 meters.That being said,I still wait till I'm practically on top of my prey before I start firing.

Most the planes I fly are armed with .50 cals or .303's so its best that I get real close anyway.But I keep my convergence around 200-ish because it allows me to get cleaner hits on snap shots.

Your best bet is to just hold your fire til your real close as its easier to hit your target as well as do better damage on top of it.
