View Full Version : Its moments like these

Last night i was flying online in a japanese betty bomber. Flying out to target i intended a torpedo attack on one of 3 enemy aricraft carriers.

I knew enemy fighters were in the area and i had no escort. So i stuck to cloud level hopeing to hide my bulky frame as much as possible.

Enemy targets appeared in view. I started my decent for a torp run and line up.

At that moment the thud of enemy fire rang through the hull of my plane. I could hear various gunners returning fire.

There was not much time.

I dove hard to sea level. Intermitant enemy rounds still penetrating my plane. I tried to line up as best as possible and let loose my torp.

My gunners were firing like crazy. An enemy fighter overshoots me and i see him fly past my cockpit. But there are still more on my tail.

A long string of thuds rings out as the enemy line up a perfect shot on my port engine, which engulfs immediately into flames.

I scream out bugger as i drop throttle on no.1 engine. Push no.2 to full. Fire still blazing.

I then cut ignition to no.1. feather the prop and go mad on the extinguishers. Nothing happens, she is still blazing. I am thinking, does my betty have extinguishers?

Thud Thud thud,

Reports of my side gunner being torn to shreds from another volley of bullets. I am also loosing response of the craft. I know the tail must be in bad shape.

I try to level out but the betty is really unresponsive...

Thud thud thud, i have lost another gunner.

Struggling hard to keep her level.... i see my dashboard guages explode in a flurry of bullets. Everything goes black. the cockpit looking like swiss cheese.

All i could do is switch to the last remaining gunner and watch as he heroically unlaods his fury into an enemy before the final seconds as the better nose dives into the water.

Now that was a great game. I really enjoyed. it.

He he seems like you will have a lot of such moments if you are a dedicated G4M flyer. Nasty Wildcats. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

While I find it absolutely amazing in the terms of manouverability, that bomber is maybe the most vulnerable one... anyway make sure that you always carry 100% fuel, you are going to need it. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Did I shoot you down with my F4U.

That time G4M's torpedo missed the ship bow about 1m http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I have no idea if it was you. If it was, you got me right through the cockpit. But i think there was at least two involved.

Missed by one meter you say.
