Nope...thats what the Refly button is for. Thats when it counts your points as well.

I hear in real life WWII pilots had a refly button in their cockpits and would push it upon running low on ammo and fuel.

A little known fact is that Stalingrad was contested not for its symbolism, but for its many power-ups.

Thats why gun camera footage is often not representative of weapon effectiveness.

Pilots were notorious for using quad damage.

If you want to simulate refueling and rearming, just sit and wait for a couple hours before hitting refly.

Good Question fluup, at least for offline play. Some aircraft were re~armed and re~fueled in minutes...We should wait at least 20 minutes to 3 hours depending on aircraft...some are too long to wait, some not. But for offline play AI must be programmed to make multiple sorties and that will have to wait another flight sim.

They managed to fly about 15-16 missions per day each! No other Romanian group made as many sorties in one day, as the 8th Assault Group did then. There was always a patrula (Romanian for Schwarm) in the air covering the infantrymen. Thus they managed to rescue the lives of more than 10,000 men. Five assault aircraft were lost, as were two pilots. The other three were rescued by their comrades.

Pilots from the 8th Assault Group on Lucenec airfield, Slovakia, in February 1945. This aircraft was used by lt. av. Lazăr Munteanu.
