Since we have FAR too many threads that are turning into the virtual equivalent of monkeys flinging poo, I though we needed something a little more light hearted. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

What are some of your most amusing kills?

For example;
My all time best "It wasnt me" kill.

I was on the deck in a 110 skip bombing ships, and went hauling over a allied destroyer, pickled my bombs and shot right over the ship. 3 seconds later, I get "Enemy Destroyed". About 10 seconds after that, I get "Enemy Destroyed" again! I havent seen a single enemy fighter!

Turns out I had a pair of Mustang jocks burning in right behind me, and the bomb blast got both of em. One blew up, the other lost major parts of his plane and bailed. I never saw either one! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Probably the funniest one; (and this only happens on full switch servers!)

I was running a P-51, with a custom skin (The Undertaker). Apparently the skin was causing some confusion with my own side, as the D-Day stripes + US markings were being confused for german insignia! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

I got shot twice by my own flipping side, and was trying to exit the area and run for home, trailing smoke and fuel.

I am limping away, and what do I see, but a 109 forming up on my wing! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I flew on for about 10 seconds trying to figure out what to do, and decided that no good deed should go unpunished! So I gave it some right rudder, slewed across the 109 and blasted him. He caught fire and headed to the ground, and an angry message shows up in chat "FRIENDLY FIRE YOU IDIOT!!". I typed back, "Dude, Im in a P-51".

HE had mistaken me for a 109! Needless to say, I dont fly with that skin anymore! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Mine probably happened a few days ago on UKD2. I was flying a B17 with some other guys, one of them got hit bad and started sinking, while a 190 positioned itself to give the wounded bird a final blow. Without hesitating, I pushed my stick forward, dived on the 190, positioned myself behind him so nose gunner had a nice shot. When a 190 pilot saw me tailing him got confused a bit (who wouldn't) and went into a zoomclimb. Heh, due to my build up speed I had no probs following him, and my nose gunner clobbered him right on the top of his zoom, during stall. Saved a teammate, got a kill and triggered lots of laughter on the server. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

Just yesterday I was flying an offline mission in the DCG Crimean '41 map. My flight of BF109-E4s were sent on a mission to intercept some inbound Pe-2s. In the ensuing melee one of my wingmen successfully killed two birds with one stone.

He got behind one of the bombers and set it ablaze. The burning craft then turned and collided with his perfectly intact wingman (whom I was zeroing in on) and took him out before I had a shot.

Talk about kill stealing! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I will see if I cant plug a shot in when I get back to the house tonight. You can find the skin over at Flying Legends.

I did a "domino kill" once.
I was shooting up a B-24 and I was concentrating my fire on the port wing and engines. The B-24 started rolling on to the left, and he smacked right into another B-24.

Another one I did was a "big bada boom kill".
This involved me shooting at a flight of PE-8s with 5000 pounders. Suffice to say I took out the whole flight but I also took out myself http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif.

Once a while ago, I think it was on WarClouds, I was a P-38 attacking an airfield, and somehow ended up alone with an enemy glued firmly to my six. I was in no position to do much of anything, low and slow... so I figured I'd cross their lines of fire, or at least ram something expensive if I were to die, and turned towards the airfield. The enemy high yoyo'd following me through the turn (good man), but as he came down and settled back in on my 6, the airfield's AA opened up.

For a second I thought the smoke in my mirror was my own, but then I realized there were 3 streams of it, and one had just gone into a climb.

I didn't make it back to base in the end due to massive damage, but the incident made me snicker. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

One day while flying in the QMB I was in an KI84, and was in the process of being tore up by a corsair and his wingman. I started leaking fuel from hits and figured it would be all over soon. I looked a bit to the left and spotted the 4 B-29s I had included in the mix and figured I might as well "make em pay". I approached very close to the B-29s hoping the corsairs would slack off a bit to avoid hitting them. I gave one of the b-29s a short burst just before I got to them the shot took off a section of the wing and it swerved right into the B-29 next to it causing them both to break up all over the sky. By pure luck I went through a very small opening in the debris and I hit F-3 just in time to see both corsairs hit the massive junk pile I had left for them.
Very cool 1 burst 4 kills. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif

I was actually the victim in this one.
Warclouds, long time ago, in P-47 low and slow (yeah, yeah bad idea, I know) trying desparately to stay in behind this 190 and give him one more good squirt to finish him off without overshooting.

He pops the canopy, which comes right at me from close range. I reflexively jerk the stick, stall out, and pancake, as he's floating down laughing.

My funniest kill was actually several that were stolen from me; back in the original Il-2 days, I was playing the Barbarossa campaign mission where your field gets attacked by four or five flights of Sturmoviks just as you're taking off.

I was a lowly Number Four in my flight, and barely got off the ground before the Il-2s smeared the second flight on the runway. I managed to de-wing one of them over the field, and ran down another and blew his tail off, in the process using up most of my 20mm.

Well, stretched out in front of me were 10+ Sturmoviks heading back to base low and slow, with no rear gunners, an inviting sight for any fighter pilot worth his salt. I came up on the nearest one, and fired away the last of my 20mm to little effect, but somehow, I'd managed to hit his oil cooler under the nose, and the little tale-tell stream of smoke announcing that he was done for in four or five minutes was clearly there, although I hadn't aimed for it. Bingo! I think. I'll just slide behind and under each of 'em, and give the oil cooler a dose of 7.9mm, and get'em all.

So having a boatload of 7.9mm, I proceeded zig-zagging up the ragged formations of hapless Il-2s, steadying my aim for a quick economical burst of LMG fire to the oil cooler, watching for the thread of smoke to signal my success, and then moving up to the next one. I had ammo left over as I happily headed for the barn, counting my unhatched chickens...

And heard "This is Number One - he's going down!" nine times!!! Ending the mission after landing, I see that I am only credited with 2 kills, so I saved the mission, and viewed the track.

Number One (an AI piloted a/c) was trailing me, and giving each Sturmo a quick burst before moving on to my next most recent victim...the only reason he didn't get credit for a tenth kill was that I had ended the mission before the last one crashed.

I think the funniest one was... well, it was not actually my kill, it was one of those "everyone died" scenarios. We were hosting Friday night COOPs. So we fired up Mistel run: 3 Mistels and like 16 fighters covering them against Mustangs and P-38s. When we spawned, about 10 sec later... one of the mistels drivers decides to go up and collides with the fighter above him - massive explosion. So massive that other mistel blows up near by and then remaining explodes too... When smoke settled... there was not a single LW plane in the air... just parts and chutes. Quickest victory of allies in the history of VFC COOPs, they even got the message "Red Won!" http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

But as far as funnies kills go... probably one in the WindsOfWar... 2 Mustangs and P-47 chasing Dora on the deck, shooting over each others shoulders, etc.... i dove from 3-4k in the G10 and fired at P-47 that was more to the right... didnt kill him but he broke left and knocked out both Mustangs.... big kaaaboom, but no credit tho. P-47 dude got the "credit" hehe...

i saw a video clip of a squad night, where 4 of them (in Corsairs) took on 4 AI ace Japanese planes.

that was when they were all tried by that point and as they merged, they fired an opportunity head-on shots... just like the enemy did... huge explosions...one after the other... and then...nothing.. just the empy sky.

The akward silence was soon broken by an uncertain voice from heaven "uhmm...are we.... all dead?"

I was running a QMB mission the other day, my flight of average Spit V against 4 ace 109-E4.

After a few minutes there was only me and one 109 left. I got on his 6, followed down to the deck, lined him up, fired. The 20mm were dry, MGs popped out a couple of rounds then they went dry, too. Damn! So, I figure what the hell, I'll just play with him for a while.

So, I follow the 109 all over the place for about 5 minutes until he levels off at 100 meters, then pulls a split S right into a river. Dumb AI.

probably the funniest for me was. I had just spawned in my 38. the base sirens were going off. Just entering the game I see a 109 turning to make a kill on a plane on deck near me, in the middle of his turn he flies right into my gunsite, so I opened up on him cutting his wing right off and putting him into the deck.

I got frustrated with that Ar-234 mission where you are supposed to shoot down the damaged B17 with your tail gun. After several attempts I couldn't shoot it down so I ended up just dropping a bomb on it instead. 1st 2 bombs missed, 3rd hit. Unfortunately I damaged my plane too from the blast.

Looong time ago I went on warbirdsofprey PF server, Guadalcanal map. I fly my zero to the island, no sight of enemy or friendly over the airfield or the fleet. I'm sooo lonely, decide to quit when I have an idea: what if I fly above sea level in the middle of the fleet? If I do it right I might get the destroyers and carriers hit each other or the cargo ships when shooting at me! So I started doing that and I can't say for sure how long did it take till I got hit, it was amazingly intense. 2 minutes, 4 minutes? But it worked, somehow I had one carrier and some other 2-3 ships smoking by the time I got killed. The rate of fire of the ships was "reasonable", still I think it was a wonder I survived so much time in a zero.

Well, I actually hate to own up for this one.
It's a co-op, a very important mission as it's getting toward the end of our internal war campaign and everything hangs on this last mission.
we have bombers lined up on the taxiway and every second fighter has an AI behind him on the runway readying up. I'm having some TrkIR problems when I hear the aircraft infront call
"airborne" and so I throttle up with WEP.
Thats when all hell broke loose, I had miss heard the call and ran into the aircraft in front.
So I'm sitting there in the smoking ruins of two vital aircraft trying to apologise when the AI behind me runs into the wreckage, bounces off it and careers down the taxiway wiping out our entire airforce (almost) then crashes into the fuel tanks on the apron blowing verything to hell.
Do you think I copped some flack over that little fiasco, well it was nothing compared to what was said when the CO of the opposing force publicly offered me a brown paper bag marked
"For Services Rendered".

Well, I've had quite a few things happen that have struck me as funny.

First, I was in an Il-2 with AJ-4 Cassettes. I was diving onto a convoy of trucks when I see a FW-190 down at 12 o'clock low. I figure I'm pretty near the trucks, and the FW-190 is closing for a head on pass, So I drop my bombs to pull up hard to give my rear gunner a shot. Anyway, The FW-190 passes below, So I Pop into the rear gun to see where the bombs land.

To my surprise, Several of them landed on his plane, because all I can see of his plane is the fuselage minus both wings, plus these big green circles.

Meanwhile, He's shouting and hollering in the chat wanting to know what I did, swearing I'm a hacker and that I fired some plasma weapon at him, And advising the Admins that I should be banned immediately. Luckily for me the Admins realized what had happened almost immediately, and had a good long laugh about it.

I went after the Betty fast as I could. She dropped the suicide rocket and I thought about it. If I shot it from dead astern I would be dead. So I climbed above it in my Corsair and Boomed down on it. I watched as my tracers came closer... closer... bit o' rudder correction...BOOOM!!! Wingman and I were gone along with the Betty. Cherry blosoms are funny like that. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

Got myself into a furball flying my usual 109. I began chasing these two I-16s and it was all I could do to stay on their six. Both finally went into a left slightly climbing turn when I got the bead on the second one, took my shot and overshot him. The rounds didn't go to waste as I accidentlly shot the first one down, got the one I was trying to get after that but was lucky with him because I was laughing so hard. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif

You should post the track of you hiding behind the control tower after landing on an i16 (i think it was? or an i153 i cant remember) with the AI 109 around.

I got a kick out of that one! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>Here it is.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif it was one of the best moments in this game overall.... the chances of that happening.... is suffice to say it low.

Some other "not funny at the time" cases, relating to taking off Me-110s from that terrible airfield in Crimea with the hill at the end of the runway.

I usually do my own take-offs/landings. After the 5th Me-110 mission, I got lazy and did an auto take-off with time-acceleration. The AI flew straight ahead & plowed me right into the hill. As I sat, stunned at the stupidity of this, my whole section plowed into the same hole I had just made. Four KIA!


OK, next time, I'll take off and make my usual right turn to get over the lowest point of the rising terrain, then a gentle left turn around the high hill. But I guess I was too quick to turn back left and, yup, 2, 3, & 4 all yelled, "I'm hit", etc. I flew back around the hill and saw their burning wreckage. 7 KIA in two missions! Aw, cr@p.

BTW, our load out was full bomb loads, not the gun pod. I had flown a previously succesful mission with the bomb load out.

Now, I make sure that I turn right, get over the lowest point of terrain, flight straight for a while, and delay my left turn back to the Nav point until my wingmen are above the terrain and will miss the hill when they join up.

LOL remembered another one: I was showing a friend how to attack ground targets, so I built a "special" map for him. In the middle of nowhere I put a hangar, with a hidden mistel inside it (which, of course, my friend was unaware off). Now I told my friend to fire a couple of rockets into that hangar.

Shot the float off a Rufe. Crashed into float. My wreckage hit the Rufe, which exploded.

a while back on spits v 109's I was chasing a p38 J that had just finished vulching the field. He was running like crazy and I assumed that he knew I was back there. After about 10 minutes of chasing he slowed down some and I started to catch up. Then I noticed he was flying very straight and level. After en eternity of lineing up the shot and and very carfully centering the ball and watching him very close I let loose with a burst of cannon at about 3000 yards, and killed the pilot.

Nothing about that shot was easy.. Most importantly I got damm lucky.

BSS_AIJO,

Almost as funny as the time I was dogfighting some hurricanes with a stuka. 8^)
