Does anyone else feel that the .303 rounds are somewhat deficient in power. I know that this ammo wasnt the most destructive but it still seems to fall short when attacking stukas/bombers. I pumped a full complement of ammo into a stuka and produced the merest wisp of smoke (and yes..I did get my rounds on target!).

Try to aim in a spot... like engine/gas tank... you'll get a nice blaze of fire

and do all this, very close to convergence range. It also works for the P-47.

its extremely weak and needs to be fixed im sorry but 10 .303s should tear apart he111s stukas and emils with ease in a few short bursts.

a few days ago I hosted my battle of britian map with the hurri iib vs 109e he111 and stuka, there was not one person who was able to shoot down 2 he111s before running out of ammo besides getting pks which we always had to shoot for the he111s noses to down them


same goes for p11 fights you have to aim for the pilot to down the person online

,50s are very weak against the la7 yaks lagg and 190 wings and tails "besides a side gastank hit or direct belly gastank hit on the 190 that you can see in the chinese video in olegs rr"

its a rifle bullet. It works great on soft targets but hard target are a different story. And i do beleive thats what they did with the hurris during the BoB was aim for the guy flying the plane.

So you have to get in close and fire em up to do anything to a plane.



"Of all my accomplishments I may have achieved during the war, I am proudest of the fact that I never lost a wingman. It was my view that no kill was worth the life of a wingman. . . . Pilots in my unit who lost wingmen on this basis were prohibited from leading a [section]. They were made to fly as wingman, instead."

I had trouble doing much damage with the .303's at ranges of 350 meters, though closer in, they do better. My aim could do better also, however....
