View Full Version : Not able to bail out

10-30-2004, 07:05 PM
I am playing single missions PF and after I get wounded, I try to bail out of a japanese plane. It doesn't let me. I've tried opening the canopy but it does nothing.

Did the japanese just not bail out? I've yet to try to bail out of an american plane in pf.

There is an option for pilots not to have chutes. This was frequently the case with RL japanese pilots, particularly eary in the war (and late for 1-way trips).

This parameter also causes fatally damaged AI planes to look for a ground target to take with them...

They usually bailed their planes onto carriers and battleships.

Yes - they tended to bail on survival.

think i had the no-bailing problem once, i think iwe solved it by opening cockpit first, then bail
