Oh come on, have a little fun with it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Just doing a little research.

04-06-2005, 08:47 PM
I did not not vote becuse my choice would be to hold fire until I know for sure what it is.

Gosh. I have no idea. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

75 is convergance. I'm squeezing the tit. Kill kill kill kill kill it!!!1111

04-06-2005, 08:51 PM
I believe thats a mustang with crosses on. EDIT... maybe not. there is one pic in the series that looks like a mustang with incorrect markings. there's also an unlinked pic of a jug with no markings, so it may be a 109 after all.

Either way, its at the point where my guns converge so i say kill it. Kill it good.

In the pic linked above, the icon tag appears to be blue. The Mustang should be flying for red. Therefore, foe ...

At least I think the tag is blue. It could be black. Maybe the Mustang is also flying for black. Maybe the Mustang is flying for blue. Maybe the unknown plane is a neutral or a civilian. Yeah, I don't know.

I would also hold off to shoot. I have flown that 109vsSpit server the last couple days and I rarely shoot at that distance if I'm not sure. If he's shooting and I see blue tracers I would also have to "Squeeze the tit" as Baldie would say lol.

04-06-2005, 09:22 PM
Baldie, All planes have their correct markings.

04-06-2005, 09:49 PM
Friend or foe it dont matter he's to far away to open fire.

04-06-2005, 10:24 PM
109!!!! Kill it!!!!

04-06-2005, 10:38 PM
I think 109 (87%)
could be P40 (13%)

04-06-2005, 10:42 PM
No under wing rads.. not a 109.

Dihedral not steep enough for a P-40.

Looks like a Russian bird?

Me109.Can`t say which type though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

Think it's a 109 poss?

04-07-2005, 04:57 AM
voted friend so as not to shoot.... tooooo far away by half think its a P40

04-07-2005, 04:57 AM
Its 109. However I'd get allot closer before opening fire 1: to make sure and 2: to concentrate my fire.

04-07-2005, 05:04 AM
By the look of how high the elevators are up the tail fin, BF-109, possibly a K-4? Couldn't be Russian, look at the height, it'd be scuicide.

Burn it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Foe, but I still would get closer.

I'm in the neither camp. From that angle at that range its too far for a positive ID and chance for damage is minimal at that range while the chance of alerting the pilot to your presance is high.

04-07-2005, 09:14 AM
Gun view -P51
Other plane - Foe 109

04-07-2005, 09:59 AM
109 - shoot

04-07-2005, 10:07 AM
Looked like a 109 to me too. I would KILL IT...but would get in convergence of 275 first.

04-07-2005, 10:16 AM
From the angle of the wings, it looks like a 109.

The acid test would be to shoot a few rounds at it. If it immediately started to trail black smoke, it's a 109...even at that range http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

P51.. the horizontal stab only looks high because of the angle of approach.

04-07-2005, 11:28 AM
This is why I got about a dozen sorrys last night.
There is know way to tell, and as Oleg said himself this sim is not built for (full real) as you cannot see or tell till you are to close and you have just made the sim way to hard not real.
I love to fly , but it gets very boring getting shot by your own team because there is no way to tell for sure inless you are about 100 feet away!That is most of the time not all

But you are right that aircraft could be about any singel engine aircraft in the game.

04-07-2005, 11:47 AM
thats got to be a 109. low wing, dihedral, high tail mounted elevators, short vertical stabilizer,

because of the angle, its hiding the radiator fairings under the wings.

I'd say that Im 90% sure its a 109, but i'd let it close to about .50 out before shooting.

04-07-2005, 12:07 PM
The gunsight says it's a 109. And it's doomed.

04-07-2005, 02:07 PM
ANSWER: Shoot to kill. It's a 109. With German Crosses.

Shucks I was gonna say 109..... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I still wouldnt fire though till I got closer.... I hate wasting ammo.

04-07-2005, 09:46 PM

For both the dead 6 o'clock ones, I can't really tell. There are things I can rule out (re: no dihedral=not P40), but nothing I can be sure of. Definitely need more practice id-ing from the rear.

Sparx--I would add a category of "Not sure (get closer)".

For the other two, I could identify the markings (roundel and black cross).
