View Full Version : Weak .50s?

One of our squaddies put together a mission based on the Janes Fly Now mission. What a blast! Anyway - I decided to fly it with limited ammo - not sure what the ai settings are but anyway - in the mustang the trick is to aim very carefully. I found 109s and 190s going down with short bursts. still, I was running out too soon (10 or so kills). So I exchanged the mustang for a p38. Took a few tries- much harder to get kills - I ended up against four a8 or a9s with only 3 .50s working. I managed to get three with very short bursts before running out of ammo. All three of these last were in the 5-7 o'clock position with convergence set to 200m.
So - careful aiming work in both a/c - though hits were easier in the mustang and the six fifties do alot of damage and allow more slop. Against the 'tank' 190a8/9 from the nefarious six position I was able to consistently get kills with very short bursts of 3 .50s. targets were pilot, engine and wing.

And may I ask why a member of a german sqadron would fly an american plane? And against our Fatherland's fighters? Traitor http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

I never thought the .50 were weak, i always thought the key is to aim carefully, alldough i have to admit that i find it easier to aim with the Pony, then with the P38, cuz, the Lightning's has a nasty nose that shakes like crazy. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

Its easier to get kills with wing mounted guns since you're shooting at angle at the convergence zone. Its harder with the P-38 because it shoots straight forward and you have to make those deflections shot more often.

Yes but those two guns are syncronized to fire through the prop. So its not all peachy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

As an usual flyer on Bf-109´s I´ve managed to get a more punchy 151/20 turning off REALISTIC GUNNERY. I believe this way it get closer to the real s*** we´ve seen in authentic footage, a bit too much , but better then default. Perhaps a 3 nochs config. for this matter would work.
Best,

If your saying that turning off realistic gunnery improves the 151/20's then why not leave it on and just get closer.

I get close ( 70m ) as I can but love my *** specially when dozens of .50s are shooting at me. What I´ve said is like many posters on this topic complaint about the lack of real punch of the 151/20 cannon and disabling RG feels closer to real footage.
Best,

Hi, Zen http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

a single 151/20 just for a clever and good education guy can use this gun...! do you belive that ?

ok then I move to use MK108 becuase I'm not clever ... and you know what ?

someone said "MK108 is too strong..!" well I feel shamed on it but sorry I have no choice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

use mk108 shooting a fighter plane is a very funny and not concern for a history aircombat.. but it's COOL... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
