View Full Version : Fix AI Damage model for G4M series

Please consider fixing the AI control/damage model for the G4M series. It seems perhaps an issue with center of gravity sending this plane tumbeling upside down, more of a flat spin but tail heavy!! It is really sad.

Also perhaps a cure for the extended dead man glide many of these planes beyond just the G4M when they loose power. It seems they can glide for considerable miles. Perhaps program something like after 15 seconds with no prop turning, have them start to spiral down or something.

Why single out the G4M? It happens on all aircraft when they loose both elevators.

Also consider the G4M1-11 was a very light bomber, an exact opposite of the B-17 and B-24s. American bombers were heavy, heavily armoured, carried a considerable bombload, and had strong defensive armaments. The Betty had no self-sealing fuel tanks, no armour, light bombload, and was defended with 7.62mm guns as opposed to .50 cal (and twin) machine guns on the 17s and 24s. It is extremely light for a bomber, with an extremely long range. That is why it glides for miles, if anything it has a correct FM/DM.

===&gt; Correction. Various marks of the G4M series carried defensive armament up to 20mm in caliber.

Aye, that is correct, but on the whole, most 20mm armament was for the rear only.
