View Full Version : Parafrags neither para nor frag

When I drop parafrags, which are listed as x40 in the loadout option, two smelly little bombs fall out of my plane and go boom when they hit the ground.

Nothing. Nada. Nyet. No parachute cluster goodness at all.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It's a known bug, actually not even a bug, just a typo. If you want parafrags in A20 take 2*100 lb bombs, and if you want 2*100 lb take parafrags!

It's a bug. What is labeled "Parafrags" is actually 2 100-lb bombs. Select "2x 100lb Bombs" and you will enjoy parafraggage.

[Drat. Beat me to the post.]

HOLD ON!! If you want the A-20 you need to select the 109G6 with Finish markings.

Ahh.. stop messing with peoples mind. Now take your **** FW off the carrier and make room for some real aircrafts.

Actually, my A-20 works beautifully off a carrier. Takeoffs are fine, landing is something else.

And I LOVE them parafrags. For now they both para AND frag.

Thanks again gentlemen!

It's not a mistake at all.

It's just listed in French.

There's "Para", meaning "two" and "frags" meaning "small bombs".

Really. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I love the parafrags, but they seem to have an anomoly. When dropped very low the explosion is not visible.

Also does anyone know the maximum height above ground that they can be dropped from, because I see they have a time delay fuse and will explode in the air. From my quick testing it seems you don't want to exceed 150 meters, with 100 being better. Below 50 the explosion effect does not happen although they still do damage.

The AI won't fly low enough to drop them in my experience, either. Treetop alt is proper for parafrags in RL. 15-30m.

They work nice against flying bombers. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Hmmm, well aside from the rather angery tone, I believe that's an F4u on the carrier in that pic.

Though only operational on U.S. carriers in late war they were carrier based after the Brits showed us that it was possible to land them on carriers without going over the deck http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.
