A question I have been itching to ask..

DO they???? Ingame of course

I mean, im assuming it just takes a bit of time to do it, but ive never actually seen them reusing their guns...

someone comfort me...lol

Nope. I've beat 'em silly with my logbook but they refuse. Keep muttering something about being 'out'.

good looooooooooooooord :'(

I wonder, when you look around inside their gunner positions, all those pretty magazines, hanging there...are those abstract art to make it a more "liveable" place?

Well the question now is....why is it so hard to implement that?

I mean, its no where near realism is it?...isit??

Although you never see the physical action and pause in firing happen of reloading but those magazines do actually dissapear when you are running out of ammo. At least in the JU-87 they do....as far as I know ammo quantity in this game is fairly realistically modeled for the most part.

As well as in the He-111, Ju-88, etc, so yes, they reload if applicable, and the magazines do disappear as they get used. That was one of the first things I noticed playing as a side gunner in the He-111.

Though magazines do disappear on some aircraft, you can actually keep the trigger pulled al time, until all ammo is expended. So for human gunners there is no need to reload.

I suspect the same is true for AI gunner, though it's more difficult to prove (you should count the number of rounds thot by them)

They don't need to reload when they're sniping engines and pilots from 1km with a mere double-tap. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif



Sorry, couldn't resist the ripe opportunity to b!tch about those underpaid sharpshooters that always seem to be working for the other guy.

Hmmm, a big gripe here as well, especially online http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
