Hi,
is it possible to ripple fire me262 rockets??
i recall that someone said that the convergence setting could be used for this?? or any other planes?
cheers

The R4M rockets can only be fired all at once.

cheers That is how they worked in real life, thus no good reason to change it IMHO.

I think allmost all rockets fired by WW2 Ground attack planes were fired in salvoes, including rockets fired by Typhoons and IL-2s, probably because they were so unaccurate.. for some reason only the ME262 fires them in salvoes here.. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

i remember when the 262 rockets fired in pairs. shot down 20 bombers in one sortie with the guns and the rockets.

Problem is effective r4m blast radius is not modeled in il2 or the dm is not able to register the effect. Similar to bombs damage effects that are only working from some angles where other areas you can drop a sc2000 with no effect.

You can't.

The rockets are inaccurate and not very powerful on their own.

By firing them at once, they scatter and cover a wide area, making a hit almost certain.

Also, given the dangerous conditions, the Me-262 pilot couldn't hang around and liesurely fire single shots. They had to get in, kill something, and get out fast before the escorts or gunners got them.

IRL the R4Ms used on the Me262 were usually fired in 4 salvoes of 6 missiles each at intervals of 0.07secs from a range of 600m. The missles used an impact fuse. The missles diverged slightly after launch in a cicular pattern with a diameter roughly to that of a 4 engine bomber.

I've seen a video of Typhoons firing their rockets in pairs.
