View Full Version : Love the Patch, but what's with AAA and tailgunners accuracy again?

It seems every time we have a major patch to the game someone on the dev team sneaks in and ratchets up the AI's ability to track with laser precision. Perhaps some Russian programmer who fears for the lives of the ai pilots he created.

This is not just me personal opinion, I am hearing it from lots of fellow pilots.

This applies to AAA and tailgunners, although tailgunners seem to become idiots when they are in a human piloted plane, either holding fire or shooting at 1.0K, or firing at ground targets you are strafing on the pullout.

Most everything else is GREAT! (except the trim...)

First thing I noticed when trying out the MG151/20s was that "average" B17s couldn't hit me even when I was flying right behind them.

I don't think anything's changed.

Against the 111s and 110s anything around their 6 can be deadly with veteran or ace, more so than before. Going at them from an angle and speed and they're not as accurate as before. They also maneuver better, or with less predictability. Overall its more real, and fun for me.

Flak seems a little more accurate. I have noticed that.

Don't know if they're more accurate or their weapon damage is now higher too.

Thats the right way to attck bombers; Hanging on a 6 level and slowly gaining on a formation is asking to be shot down by enemy fire.

A little OT but in V 4.00 AI fighters shoot in shorter bursts than before. Nice not to have those 10 sec AI bursts anymore. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
