Me...

had an awesome experience online the other day.

i was flyin over Burma on UK-D2 at aprox 1000meters when i spot a Zero chased by 3 Spitfires on the deck. I crank my own Zero over and dive for it. leveling out right behind the rearmost Spitfire (they were flying in 1 line all chasing the same Zero http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif)
i fire the first few rounds scoring hits i the rear of the fuselage and the left wing. the power of the impakt and the big whole in his left wing spins him left and he crashes into the jungle while i continued ahead to get the next spitfire.
I almost imidatly reached a good firing range for the next one and gave him a few rounds aswell however he maneged to pull away leeking smoke from his engine, (he was finished off shortly afterwards by another Zero)
after a few more seconds i reached the foremost spitfire and opened up on him, he broke off the chase and i followed him in a high speed climbing turn, we did a large barrelroll but unable to shake me off i shot him to pieces and he crashed into the jungle aswell...

3 chasers killed by a single Zero in the right position at the right time http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif...i reckon the spitfires were very foolish to fly like that but im thrilled that i succeeded in killing 2 and damaging the last one and i think the chased Zero (some [BF's] member) was very happy and suprised to see his 3 chasers suddenly disappear

had a nice feelin in the stumach afterwards.

lol, anytime I can score hits on someone, let alone shoot them down, I always leave with my hands shaking. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

I should get online more often.

I was on a dogfight server, and just happened to be stooging around in a B17 when my wingman came over the comms and asked if I was anywhere around. He had a Zero on his tail and he was damaged.

"I told him I was nearby, but"....what the heck, I dived down in the -17 and pulled right up the tailpipe of the Zero. Instantly, the nose gunners opened fire and shot his wing off.

Wingman: "Thanks! Where did you go?"

Me: "I'm in the B17 right behind you..."

havent maneged to do that yet however i saw a funny little thing happen today.

down low and dirty on the russian front (UK-D2)
an IL4 is desperatly trying to evade a Me109 with a few other planes fighting around nearby. during the evasive turning the Me109 makes an attack from the front and flies past the slow IL4 on its left side BUT suddenly a gunners hits something valuable and the me109 crash

i was watching from a distance so i dont know what brought him down but it certinly was that gunner. And it was a quite impressive snapshot from the gunner, totally random more like...

One of the more interesting facts about Jochen Marseille (probably the greatest multiple kill per sortie exponent of all time) is that the Luftwaffe kept stats on shots fired per kill and his average was 15 mg rounds fired (and less than one cannon round) per kill. He tended to 'save" his cannon (which was prone to jamming) and use mg when possible.

Another curious fact is that many of his early multiple kill sorties were against allied planes in a Lufbery circle. His technique was to dive under the circle pull up and deliberately stall fire a short burst at a target aiming slightly forward of the pilot (often taking it out with the one burst) and then intentionally spin to avoid pursuit, recovering a few thousand feet below the circle and coming back for a new target.

i guess his special way of fighting left the allied pilots surprised when he suddenly had his guns on them and wondering how to counter him.
i think i understand the tecknique..would be fun to try online..but 15 mg rounds...you gotta be a sniper to do that.

Was that me in a Ki-61 being chased? Because that situation sounds almost exactly what happened to me the other day.

Ended up in the middle of a Spitfire furball in my Ki-61 Otsu. Blew through the furball, picked out a single Spitfire and gave him a burst. Must have done something because he crashed ...but I ran like hell from there with four Spitfires on my tail. One of them broke off quickly but there were three chasing me until a couple of Zeros were dropping in to help.

Was probably you http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It was brilliant shooting in any case! Happy to line up a bunch of target fixated Spitfire pilots any day http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

That's what they get for trying to daisy chain someone rather than covering each others butts.

Good work I say, good work.

To add to the flavor- I posted a longer version of this yarn awhile back so I'll give the shorty version.

Flying along in my JU-88 to do a ship strike on Spits v 109's- I see a fellow bomber under attack from a spitfire, and there were no friendly little guys around as far as I could tell.. I dropped my bombs to shed the weight, fire walled and came in behind the spit- gave him a burst up the tail pipe with my forward gun.. he broke off.

My next step was to tuck myself into a close formation with the other bomber as a deterrent and so we could cover each other with our guns.

It does make you feel good to help someone out like that and show some teamwork when often there isn't much going on...
