Strangest thing happened to me in QMB. Setup a quick jet battle, me in a YP80 against the Notowny 262 on ace.

Managed to pull off a cracking deflection shot on the first pass, and severed the 262's wing and set the jet engine on fire.

he was going some tilt so he descended in a slow curve. Wait a minute! He started gaining height again! then he continued to fly at 800 kph rapdily oscillating but staying in the air.

observe:

ive also got the track if anyone wants to see.

I basically persued him for another 10 minutes get some more 50 cal into the other engine. still not down!

eventually i ripped my own wing off in too sharp a turn and he carried on for another 5 minutes before crashing!

weird!

I just picked up BoB II and did a quick mission in a Spit. A 109 shot 2/3rds of my left wing off and I was able to fly on for quite some time before losing control and eventually crashing.

awesome pic dazza9806482 !

out of all my time flying 262's i cant say ive ever managed fly on with the outer wing ripped off - must be a AI thing

id sure like to see the track

doesnt the P-80 ripp wings easy ? once you got a bit of speed you really have to watch its turning ability

yes its a ai thing many other ac do it too. Hey badsight since you such a me262 expert look for me on HL if you care to fly 1vs1 for fun.

Ill have to ask fish to fly also hes one of the best me262 pilots i seen.

I use the center view exploit tho put a tiny red marker dot where site lines up in normal view then switch to centered view which is a huge advantage in FR settings.

Give me a pm if you see me on HL.

@ DHS: Yeah, im a big reason fan. totally love 3.0 and really enjoy days spent wiring CV outs into lots of different units. spaghetti junction after a while! only thing holding me back is a lack of musical talent http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

@: Badsight, yeah i love the P80 very agile, id actually expended all my ammo and was trying to ram the 262 after following him for so long! if u want PM me yr email and il send u the track...

i long for a korean war sim. like jets but still dogfighting
