WHERE DID THIS COME FROM DUDE?

We've had the P-38 in FB since AEP came out, except the P-38's we have have N-5 gunsights, not the K-14. No P-38 we have should have the K-14, as I understand.

Is this an FB/AEP/PF P-38L? I don't remember seeing the K-14 sight in the L, although I've spent most of my time in the J, of late.

And bullet holes in the yoke handles-ouch. Reminds me of the punchline from the classic Cheech and Chong bit: "Sign zee papers, old man..."

It seems that I remember a discussion about this while FB was beta. The K-14, it was decided, was not in use among enough Lightnings to warrant the placement, so it was removed. That shot was probably a wip screenie posted way back then to display cockpit damage.

PS, Womenfly, I keep trying to take engine damage, but I haven't had any luck yet. I either get killed letting the ai have a crack at me, or else get all PO'ed and just shoot it down. I'll report back in as soon as I have the results from my testing, Ma'am. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
