View Full Version : Mister oleg maddox, why did u brake the bf110 antitank cannon????

that cannon is supoust to shoot downwards, as the rockets shot upwards...... the antitank gondola canon in the bf110 used to shoot as it is supoust to shoot downwards... till one of the patches... now it shoots straight...... even if i get more tank kills now... i dont care because i know that the canon in real life shoots downwards.... can u please leave it as it was at the begining?

Aztek_Eagle, Oleg mentioned before changing the cannon in one of the patches that they had either mis-read depictions of the cannon mounted on the 110, or had gotten the diagrams after including it in the game. As it is currently depicted in the game (shooting straight with reference to the gunsight) is as it was during the war, to the best of the info Oleg currently has. It's also a lot easier to use now, for me at least.

it can do both i think, players wanted straight ahead so it was changed

It *needs* a muzzle brake

It's not an antitank cannon. It's for shooting down heavy bombers. Try shooting a tank with it--it fires high explosive rounds, not armor piercing. The worst you can do to a tank with it is bounce it around some.

Well its a anti tank weapon and i use it for this purpose for bombers mk108 or gr21 sounds more reasonable.

Bk 3.7

fastest velocity cannon shell of WW2 IIRC

tungsten core AP tho , have to get it to hit something good cause it aint explosive

think of it as the most Uber AP gun in FB http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

that canon indeed shoots downwards... now it is wrong.. it was right before......

? perhaps the canon was able to move up and down? witch i dout it..... if he says they did use the gunsight..... may be the gunsight did move to be able to aim that... may be wiht the rockets to.........

and indeed... it is called flak canon for anti bomber porpuses

This was discussed ages ago, IIRC Oleg commented that the bf110 G2 fitted with Bk 3.7 Easternfront variant in IL2 FB AEP was used for attacking bomber formations, it was a mistake to have the barrel aiming down as anti tank weapon he correceted it quickly .

He fixed the gun but broke the plane... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

As said, the Bk37 fitted on the 110 was not an anti-tank gun, eventhough it perfectly suits for this purpose as far as you follow some rules (30-45? AoA, from the rear).

Try shooting on the ground, with the 110 and the Ju87G1, you'll se the difference of shells.
