Ok ... i like ground attack planes like Il-2,Stukaa or SBD ... but i got bored of them tried fighters.
I`m a romanian so i started the romainian fighter campaign Iar-80 (kuban '42).

Afther 5 missions without much fighting due to small numbers of enemys ... we got attacked by a large group of soviet P-40 ... bla bla bla ... i got above a P-40 came down on him ra ta ta ta ... the plane is smoking ...and it crash lands bellow me ... the pilot runs from the wreck.
I get no kill ... i say ok no problem i did good... and suddenly a fellow AI pilot strafes the P-40 wreckege and guess what he gets a KILL... wtf ?
Next mission same thing a get above some P-40 i choose my target shoot it from a dive ... he tries to escape ... and while we manuverd low ... he hits a tree and explodes ... now i was the only one who shot him ... i get no Kill.

I realy don`t understand what else should i do ... blow it out of the sky with an AMRAMM to get a kill or at leasta a group kill or something.
Thank you.

lol.

AI is notorious for killstealing. If the AI strafes the crashlanded plane before it disappears, the AI gets the kill.

For the second one I think you just didn't hit it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif, and although you deserved it, didn't get the kill http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

The AI will continue to shoot at a target so long as it is alive. It's not overly sophisticated AI, all they wanna do is kill stuff, so they end up shooting things like pilots running away from a crash, or a plane without a wing.

Or when you parachute near AAA the gunners shoot at you untill you fall and die.
I realy hate that.. i always had the impression a prissoner is better than a body.

If i play offline which is rare, and an AI tries to steal my kill, i order them all home, they break off immediately and i go get my kill. Once im succesful, if i need to i tell them to engage again. Rinse and repeat.

I don't much problems with AI stealing since I like to glue myself on E/A tail. AI is not what it used to be in old days nothing could stop them to destroy E/A not even if they have to shoot friendly first http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif.

It depends on your rank.

I like to fly the BF 110, since is is good for ground attack (which i like) and you also have the option for a bit of a scrap, if you are feeling frisky enough. Normally i'm not though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Tell that to my elevator.

My escorts just blasted away at E/A while I was actually in the line first.. Fortunately I flew
an IL-2 so it didn't hurt too much.
