I had an Il-2 overdose today and discovered a couple of details for the first time:

An exploded Me-163 reveals it's Walter rocket engine...

And a Macchi 200 shows an impressive damage model.

Any details you guys were surprised by, even after all these years?

This is not bull****, I saw an outhouse toilet shack in a town and washing on the clothes line, I think it was the newest map that came with the last beta patch. Unfortunately I dont have a screen shot.

Another suprise was not a graphic one but was quite spectacular was when my wingman snuck up behind a flight of 9 vals in 3 flights of 3 and shot at the middle one and all 9 blew up, but unfortunately also my wingman!

I think this is what you meant, a screenshot from the Slovakia map:

On map-building, I use the toilet-shack all the time as gate-guard shacks.

I was flying on a Hyperlobby dogfighting server about a month back and there were several Zeros and Las coming in to straff just as I was coming back to base with no ammo in my trusty but crappy F4U-D Corsair. I had no speed and no ability to turn with them but I caught a Zero down low and remembering what I had read in these Ubi forums before about some real life F4U pilot taking down a Jap plane with only his prop, I did the same thing and ate the tail right off a Zero with my prop. After that, I was at about 400 m height, and just put the Corsair into a slight dive to pick up speed and glided her right back down onto my own runway. Easy 100 points by a totally unconvential method - LOL.

When strafing car columns and seeing the soldiers running away from their trucks. The first time I noticed I thought: Hey what's this! Kewl!

Once I managed to shoot up the 20mm rear cannon of Pe-8 and watched the gunner sitting in his cabin without gun. Poor man http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif

I had that happen yesterday! I was chasing down a flight of fleeing Sallys after dispatching their fighter escorts when I ran out of ammo. Instead of turning and RTBing I did a zoom climb between the remaining pair and clipped ones tail with my right prop, totally accidental! Result: 1 departed engine and a Sally cartwheeling down end over end tail-less, it was very spectactular! I made it home the 70km on one engine and a fuel leak, u gotta love two engine a/c!

Ahhhh, so guard doesn't have to leave his post.
But I would hate to be stuck there on hot days.
