I'm pretty sure that the AI enemy has unlimited ammo, but your buddies have limited ammo.

Sometime I'll take my Ki-84 up against several dual-Mk108-equipped BF109s and test. They spew a lot of ammo fast and they can't hit me http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif so we'll see what happens.

Enemy AI definitely runs out of ammo. If you want to check, just turn "invincibility" on, fight against an enemy that is known for having litle ammo (Yak3 or spitfire),set their level to "average" so that they waste ammo, and see if they can keep up shooting at you forever.

I have seen on a number of occasions the AI break off and try to get away when they've spent all their ammo.

The AI definatly runs out of ammo. Gunners on non-flyable planes such as the B-17 might not, I don't know. But gunners on flyable planes and the planes themselves do run out of ammo. When playing in campaign mode, I often go chase down and kill the enemy AI's that run out of ammo and attempt to RTB.
