I have my range set at 500m and with a rear\frontal aspect profile of my target, I'm deadly. But leading my angled moving target is really not working out too wellhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gifhttp://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

I've been practicing with four KI-84c's set at ace and when these planes turn, its really hard to nail them from all the angles they present me with. Of course, I'm using my fav. LA-7.

I'm trying to get in squad joining shape http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Anyone know of any good documentation on this subject I can browse over.

Or, can offer some sound, tested advice.

Appreciate it BIG TIME. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/11.gif

Thanks

Set convergence to 200 m and get in close! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

500 m is a sniper shot, Arrra. Most RL pilots did their shooting at other fighters from 300m or less. The farther away your target is when you fire, the more things that can happen before your target's path and that of your round intersect. Greater distances require some reliable idea of what your target is about to do, how fast he is going, bullet drop and windage, which all require lots of experience.

If you're flying the La-7, sniper shooting is not the optimum solution; you have an aircraft with monstrous climb, turn, and accelleration. Your ammo is relatively limited, so you're not in a position to waste it.

In an La-7, I'd get into knife fighting range, because nobody's going to run away from me, and few will be able to out maneauver me. My cannon give me a terrific first punch, and the closer I am to my target, the greater the impact of that punch.

Coincidentally, the shorter the range, the less lead is necessary, and the wastage of firing time is minimized.

If you want to snipe, get lots of practice, starting out with easy targets, and working your way up. After a while, it will come naturally.
