Hi, I´m just wondering how much ammo they had at the rear gunner position ?? I was convinced that it was a few clips or magazines they had...but in the game flying for example dountless...i shoot them japs for about 15 secs and the ammo is gone...nothing to do but pray ...any answers ??

Wondered the same... to often I run out of ammo.
But on the other hand - short bursts should be fired. And normally you are supposed to have a fighter-escort http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

The AI-gunners are even worse. Sometimes they hit the enemy when you (as pilot) fly like a funky chicken, but sometimes they waste ammo on an enemy who is far below their weapons horizon...
As attacking fighter with enough time, this is good, just leave it to bombers AI to run out of bullets. As bomber-pilot: switch AI off from time to time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
