I've been playin' Il-2 for some time now, both the first one, and FB, but i've never noticed if enemy AI Can run out of Ammo, cause they lay on the trigger, and never seem to run out, so i was just wondering, thanks

BF110s fire their 6 guns for a while every time I go by them, and don't seem to run out, so I am wondering to.

You must be kidding? That's the easiest way to beat them. they always blow their ammo fast, and then head back home. That's when you can nail them.

In FMB, set up enemy plane right behind you and select "Invulnerability" in the difficulty menu...after you click PLAY (if you use keyboard to start mission you won't see the difficulty menu--at least on my version of FB 1.0 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif )

Fly nice straight and level and so they can hit you but don't let them overshoot (pass you)--Try 110 behind you, 109s overshoot (pass you) and come back. But they blaze away and then let you go when they run out. They go to next waypoint. Set their last waypoint at like 10km and when they leave and start climbing away, you know they are out of ammo and not just turning away to come back for another pass at you.


I think I said this right.

Yep. A lot of fancy manauvering on your part will get it done quicker, too. Then... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Aaron, AI fighters have normal ammo loadouts, and can run out. Some aircraft have lots of ammo however, at least for some of the guns. The early 109's have boatloads of ammo for the machine guns, but much less for the cannon. Looking over your shoulder as they fire (a view I see often), all guns fire for a while, then just the MG's as the cannon run dry. Eventually the MG's run out, too. Bomber gunners and AAA do not run out of ammo, AFAIK.

They only seem too. Once your guns are "shot" they steam in and blow you...out of site. I am certain that there were pilots who conserved their ammo, but this pushes it a bit far.

Yeah, they run out, but unfortunately when they do they tend to fly straight, level, blind, and stupid. Even on Ace difficulty.

Yeah, they run out of ammo eventually. Seems that they don't know how to be judicios with their guns. Easiest way of killing them.
