Here's a short glimpse of what I have been doing off-line. Take it or leave it, but I do have a couple questions: Although I heard tiny-tim rockets did not come around until after ww2, were they really as devistating as depicted here fired from my F4u? And, were Japanese fighters as fragile as they seem here, because these AI zeros and other Japanese planes seem to go down pretty easy.

I don´t know about the rockets, but indeed japanese planes were really rather vulnerable, as they were not fitted with armour plating and self sealing tanks, thence a few well aimed rounds were enough to bring them down...especially easy if wing roots or cockpit were hit. Engines weren´t protected neither, so they smoked easily too.

Before you go into that you need to tell us what your settings were.

Pre-1943 Jap<span class="ev_code_RED">anese</span> planes, I think, lacked the armour and self sealing tanks. After 1943 ? they were introduced which made the 'invincible' planes normal. I'll have to check my facts but this is the general line of developments. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I play a lot offline. About Tiny Tim I don't know whether it was used in ww2 widely, but for fragile Zeros they were fragile in real life too.
In 402 you will notice that you will not usually set Zero on fire with one short burst; instead you need to hit him with good burst to inflict critical damage.
Also because Zero is equipped with large caliber (12,7 & 20mm on later variants) it is effective against anything that flies in the sim.

Bardzo dobrze, I was into sim realated movie making last year but gave it up. It's a different world than dog fighting. Some of those movies that you can find there in the movie maker forum are really-good. But I signed-on with JG52 about five or six years ago while on JanesWW2 so if and when I fly on-line I will have to fly axis I guess. But I do like that PF scenario. I noticed that those Japs can pop a cap in my *** tho if I'm not careful, didnt mean to say too-much that they are so fragile. OT. But as soon as I get my patch order in-line I will start to fly online, but I don't think I will be able to use the tiny tim or f4u. Maybe have to use my 109 with pods. We'll see. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Tiny Tim rockets saw very little use. They proved to be very inaccurate and upredictable in combat. They were used in small numbers on targets at Okinawa and the the Marines gave them another shot in Korea but they never caught on.
