Often when you score hits on an opponents canopy area a brief small yellow flash will appear. Does anyone know what it signifies? My guess is a crew hit. I am offline only so I don't know if you can see it online.

It just signifies a hit and doesn't mean anything special possibly a ricochette ?

My initial reaction to this thread subject was :

Only when I pee but I see that would probably not be appropriate

You can see it online...I figure it means you hit the canopy glass and there was a richochet off from it.

Not exactly...
The flash indicates that the bullets are ricocheting off the planes' armor.
Nearly every cockpit had armored backs.

Shoot a IL-2 1 series with 8mm MG and you'll see it big time.

Huh.. I always figured that was the explosive ammo.

Maybe not?
