has anyone else had the experince that the avenger blowes up very easy? every time i get behind one and shot it it never smokes or gets gas leaks like other planes it just blows. iv found it a much easyer kill than a zero as far as how easy it is to kill once you get her lined up.

That shouldn't be. The real Avengers were noted for being able to absorb a lot of damage and they had self sealing fuel tanks, so they should not be flying fire bombs.

well thats what i was thinking to. but at least for be it takes less dmg than a zero. I just did some more "testing" and in a hellcat 10 out of 10 times i blew the target avenger up with only a sec burst. not even at perfect convergence eather. im going to try next in a zero only useing the two guns in the nose and not the cannons.

Yep, no doubt no self sealing fuel tanks.
Its now my favorite target. The Mig 3's and P series planes (the mid engine ones) also go boom real easy. The Avenger is very visually interesting, so is my favorite to just watch fly.

Wonder if they got the avenger and kate mixed up. The kate seems to take alot of damage.

As does Val. The DMs in this add-on are somewhat confusing, I must admit.
