I've read the book of highly decorated Hans Ulrich Rudel (500+ ground kills). He also wrote that he made some air kills with his Stuka? Even with the G1 version.. So that was for me the trigger to test this in FB. Here is the result/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Nice shot, I guess everyone can down an enemy aircraft in a Stuka, even aces! But you have to surprise them, otherwise I'd stay away from aircombat in that aircraft.

LOL Rudels tail gunner shot down one Russian ace. But he never mentions to shot down an ace himself. So I stick to the average pilots before they there guns at me/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I used to down lots of aircraft in the IL2 single seat in campaign. Low and slow and then hit them head on.

I've got few kills in VEF with Stuka, both B-2 ang G models. Record was three kills in one fight: 1 La-5F and 2 Il-2's. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

La pilot was one of the best in VEF but he was careless. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Only air victory I ever heard Rudel had was against a il2.
He was on the way to target(if Im not mistaken) in his cannon stuka and saw a formation of il2s flying low heading home and just for the heck of it he turned torwards one of the il2s and made a potshot from 300 meters away, hitting the plane in the wing and downing it. Funny was even he mentioned that he didnt even plan on hitting the il2, that it was just a "lucky" shot.

He also mentions of shooting at a p-39 that overshot him in the middle of a huge furball but only scratching his wing, which was enough for the pilot to almost crap his pants and give up the chase...

A Ju87b flown by Liuetennant Frank Neubert is credited with the first aerial combat victory of the war (1/9/39)
in Janusz Piekalkiewicz's "The Air War 1939 - 1945"
1985 Blandford Publishing.
Apparently he took on two Polish fighters - the one that escaped is credited with downing the first German 'plane of the war.
