The same day, he bombed an artillery battery near Hotin. He also destroyed a machine-gun nest and an artillery column the following days. He volunteered for the most difficult missions and on 29 June he was intercepted by an I-16. Lt. Dragomirescu and serg. Grigoriu were killed and the pilot was wounded. However, he managed to bring his badly hit IAR-39 to Botosani airfield.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE> So, IAR.39 can carry a bombload too?

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif It must have been one Hec of an dogfight.
I wonder at the lenght of flight time during the airbattle?
Even though it was basicly onesided with one oberservation aircraft with a Pop-Gun in the rear... againest the mighty Guns of a I-16.
Good Post! THANK'S!

Many times I have damaged an AI bomber or recce plane and ran out of ammo, got chased away from my target, or all my guns jammed (haha that can't happen in FB unless you are damaged yourself but it keeps me from having to admit I'm a poor shooter). But in real life sometimes all guns jam, like here... <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>By concentrating on the second and third Chinese flights (with one shotai each), only left one Ki-27 taking on the most experienced of the Chinese pilots (Ma and Teng). Although the Japanese, First Lieutenant Yoshio Sotomura (47th Class), also was a senior pilot, he made the critical error fighting to the strengths of the Chinese (probably as a result under-estimating the Chinese pilots and their inferior planes). Instead of fighting in the vertical plane where the Ki-27 had the advantage, Sotomura got into a turning fight with Teng. While Teng kept Sotomura occupied, Ma climbed above the two and bounced the Japanese from behind, hitting the Ki-27 in the fuel tanks. Smoke poured from the Ki-27 as Sotomura tried to escape. Evidently damaged, the Ki-27 could not pull away from the normally slower I-15bis. Ma was able to close to 50m and appeared to hit the Japanese pilot with gunfire as, all of a sudden, the Ki-27 stopped evasive action and flew straight with level wings. At this critical juncture, all four of Ma's ShKAS machine guns jammed.

Nevertheless, the Ki-27 was done for and it crashed shortly afterwards. The Japanese pilot died of his injuries. Although, he did not hit the Japanese, Teng contributed to the kill through fine teamwork with his element leader. The Japanese fighters returned claiming 11 shot down against a reported 20 plus I-15bis for the loss of two fighters (Harada and Sotomura).

Remember when we had to use Yak~1 to sim Spit? Was that Desperation?

Just thinking IAR.39 could be used to "sim" R~5 -- er -- depending on if the performance is reasonably close.

Also been thinking of what to use for Su~2. If the FP is compatible with the FB then maybe a Japanese carrier bomber would work, or a Devastator (if it can carry bombs). Just a thought.
