I was in a zero and it was a wildcat. I came in high and from the side and missed with a deflection shot, he tried to dive away and I peppered the top of the fuselage. I was so stunned I immediatly dove into the water http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. This may not be a big deal to any of you guys but I'll be grinning about this for a while. By the way this is my first post. God I love this game!

correction it was a hellcat and it was GOOD.

Woohoo! Congratulations. You'll always remember the first. Mine was in a A6M, Model 21. Caught a P-51 on the deck as he was chasing a friendly. Two lucky shots into his wing root and he flipped straight into the trees. Then I got consistently slaugtered for months after that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Ah, for me it was FB 1.21. It wasn't actually my first kill. I went online with the original IL2 once and had a good experience of ACM. When FB came out in 2001, I ventured onto HL and joined a relatively well-pinged server. I had a blast, missed lunch and dinner just flying. I managed to get killed not terribly often, but my gunnery wasn't just up to snuff. After several hours I got the hang of it though. I took up a Fw-190A-5 with the outboard 20mm cannons deleted. I snuck in on a Yak, missed the first deflection, and blew past him. He, in turn, stuck on my tail, I shook him, etc... It went back and forth for a while. He got a few hits on my fuselage, I popped a 20mm cannon shell or two on his wings... BUT finally, after 15 minutes of intense combat in this 1 vs. 1 dogfight, I gained the upper edge for a deflection shot and blasted him with a half-second burst into the engine and cockpit. His plane burst aflame. I leveled myself out at 250 meters (we had gone REALLY low) and one second later I got this message:

Engine: Out of Fuel.

I ditched on the road near a village. It was, to this date, one of the most exhilarating flights I've ever had. There are others, of course, some more fun, others more exciting, but nothing beats a first FR kill!

I remember my first. She had lots and lots of curly hair and a pretty smile and ... I guess this isn't the right forum after all.

Well done.

think back on all the WW2 footage you've seen. Do you remember seeing little #'s floating above their planes? Nor do i. It's good that you've chosen to fly on a server that has icons off. You're one step closer to understanding what the veterans went thru.
i applaud your choice and hope to see on more icon off/cockpit on servers in the future. oh, and don't forget to join the coms. there are many players on coms that are willing teach.

I didn't seem to remember my first victory (I always prefer to say this instead of 'kill"), but suddenly I just came back.

I don't remember the aircraft involved, nor the map, nor the pilots. I don't remember any of those things.... except for the fact that that I felt so sorry for him that I indeed typed "sorry" in the chat line after shooting him down. I felt not worthy for it.

Yea, I know this is pretty wierd. But I am weird, so in fact, this behavour is not weird from me, if you get my point.

Anyhow, to this day, I still feel sorrow and sadness after shooting a human opponent down. No amount of chatline *****ing, KS-ing, TK-ing or FW-190 gang-banging on my I-16 changed it. Probably because I always played on the tightest settings, where this childish behaviour is less, and these days I only fly co-ops, where each opponent is precious, you don't want to ruin someone's day by blasing him into a big hole in the ground. A touch of 0.50s into his engine compartment, he will have fun landing the aircraft somewhere on his way home, I will have my fun collecting my points at the end of the mission.

Now you can understand why I call it a 'victory' and not a 'kill'. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Yes, congratulations on your experience, and congratulations for having the intelligence to fly on full-real servers.

I cannot remember my first kill on a full real server, I flew so much, and it was five years ago, but I do remember other events and kills from back then.

It is a great thing we are a part of here. After five years, I still get the greatest satisfaction when I flame some red trash.

Congrads and welcome aboard!

Mine was a P51 VS a Dora I somehow managed to surprise the dora and for once my aim was on. I watched it go smoking down to the ground.... and was then bounced by the fellows wingman who I did not see I crashed about 20 feet from my first kill.

Congrats... Wellcome to the club "killer". My first online "human" kill was in a P-47. I skragged a FW-190 that was peppering Winddancer after we'd made our bombing run. The guy was a JG and saluted me afterwards. I promptly crashed on landing.

I also remember one special game me and my squad mate joined, we jumped in two F2's and flew towards the target, there we saw two dots and we prepared to combat them, we covered each other well and we menage shoot them down cuite fast, then we where kicked out of the game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I think I maybe in the getting slaughtered stage .
Been shot down alot lately. Also someone on an otherwise full real server clued me in on f6, i didnt know about it. I was dissapointed, made it seem less a sim and more of a game. Someone mentioned feeling bad about making a kill, I dont, nothing like a huge fireball of flaming smithereens http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif A p-47 went up especially nicely yesterday, i dont think he saw me, maybe he was sightseeing . Thanks for the congrats everybody, I look forward to killing and being killed by you all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

No it isnt and I was disillusioned and disapointed that the players I thought were so good, because they were killing me regularly, were using f6. I thought someday I might be as good as they were, but they were using f6, so they were never as good as I thought they were anyway. Thanks for all the kill stories everybody, I enjoyed reading them.

02-02-2007, 05:01 AM
I remember when that happned to me on Ukded. I flew for a month, always getting bounced, then someone told me about F6 key!

To be fair on the server operators tho, they dont like F6 padlock either- they just need externals enabled, and F6 padlock has to be on if you want externals (insert moan here).

One good point about f6 is that it really gets the action going even with just a few people on the server, as everyone can find each other.

I wonder if it was me who said he felt bad for making the kill? I was flying a 109G2 yesterday and came upon a lower Hurricane. I let him go and typed into the chat 'I feel too bad to shoot the Hurricane down, I have such a better plane' or something like that.
