Hey guess what? I just flew a german airplane!!!!!!

I always have liked the guns on this thing but just never flew it. I love watching those WWII videos of this thing.

My question is that when the ammo hits the ground or water, it doesnt make such a big splash in the game compared to the vids and gun footage of WWII. What ya think?

Apparently thats some of the HE ammo they used in place of the AP rounds typically used. I asked the same question http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Good point http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Actually...that'd be nice armament option...HE instead of AP rounds!

It wouldn't have to be HE to make a big plume. I think IL-2 overdoes the difference between the two types.

After all, even just a 50cal AP will make a water plume some 3-5m tall. A 37mm AP round going even faster might make a plume 30m tall!

Putting explosive in it might not make a lot of difference, given that there's already an enourmous amount of energy transefer by KE alone.
