The new AI has a few more tricks up thier sleeves, IMHO. I now find that when an AI opponent is flying a faster aircraft, they are actually taking advantage of it. Extending away so they can come back and slash back at you, usually with a head on pass. Also, when they fly planes with superior climb, they will fly up in a spiral climb, trying to lure you to your death, And if you fall for it, ( if you are stupid *** hint *** ) they will get a good altitude advantage and dive down on you in a slash diving attack. And they are snipers that won't miss most of the time, despite your effort to evade at the last second. Why can't you evade with a manuever?? Because you were stupid, fell for it, and have very little energy for a manuever in your desperate climb after them, that's why.

The AI are more like human fliers now but still can't shoot deflection at high lead pursuit angles. Plus they still don't seem to squeak as much turn out of a plane as it really has, enabling you to out turn them if you are flying a plane that should not out turn them. This has not changed since day one of the IL2 demo.

By the way, I am going to watch that track.

Yep, that's a fancy move alright!

I'll grab some tracks from my coop tonight and you'll see what the AI can do inverted now http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

You'd think you were chasing one of these:

The main problem with the AI isn't that it has more moves - that's good - it's that it has "crosshair sense" - as soon as your crosshair gets within its vicinity, it goes into evasives. It's impossible to bounce it, lead it properly, anything.
