My squad has seen this many times in Normandy flying BoE campaigns.

They "sink" when you shoot them too.

This is much better than seeing "Foo Fighters". http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Nyet, nyet, moi droog! Floating train was secret project created in glorious city of Novosibirsk in 1941.

Sadly it was cancelled after all the graphs and statistics to it's performance were destroyed in a tragic fire when a bear got into the offices and knocked over the night-watchman's brazier.

And you are surprised that something Russian doesn't obey the normal rules of physics?

I'm surprised that you're not surprised.

Tsk! So cynical! Always thinking the worst of poor old Med. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

Nah, it's just a funny little glitch - nothing to worry about.

Oddly enough, I do know a Russian physicist, but that's another story for another time.

Go on...I'm all ears

Of course, it could be a British train with the wrong kind of water on the line.

it's the river which are over-modelled......

if after putting a train on the map, you go into its mission file in notepad, then add or alter the co-ordinates for each turn (not waypoint) you can get them to go anywhere...

up and down mountains..... under the forests too....

see my mission 'railyard' (or trainyard i forget) at airwarfare....

thats pretty funny, but I still think the funniest thing I ever saw in a flight sim was the giant faucet at the head of the Colorado river in Falcon 3.0 or Godzilla eating the love boat in the Tiger add on.

Obviously the Russians built their bridges underwater to avoid their detection by the Luftwaffe.

The Germans actually built and used an underwater bridge for an armored counter attack on the eastern front in '45 I think.

It was bombed.
