I have noticed that it is alot tougher to do a taran in fb(in the orig & 1.11) the planes explode most of the time, maybe I am doing something wrong. I did notice yesterday that crashing into wings doesn't produce an automatic explosion. However sawing off someones tail is a lot more complicated.

I don't even mind if the prop on my plane gets damaged, but sometimes when I run out of ammo and I still have a bandit or two I like to taran. Especially on my side of the lines in the Campaign mode.

What ya think???

TARAN? Am I missing something? What is it?

I remember "Girls on Film" by a group called Turan Turan back in the 80´s, horrible hairstyles and thin leather ties.

Please tell me I misunderstood you... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

No ramming would result in the destruction of both ac .
A Taran on the other hand would ,if done correctly only leave the enemy spireling towards the ground .

To execute a Taran you need to come up from below and clip the tail of the enemy ac with your prop .
Not easy .

Soviet-inspired "Taran" maneuver - or deliberating ramming an enemy's airplane. Taran was first employed in World War I by Peter Nesterov, who ran his propeller into the tail of an Austrian bomber.

Nesterov, the practitioner, the pioneer of this technique, died. But his example lived on.

The first Taran hero who survived to tell about it was Viktor Talailikhin. He later perished in his second Taran attempt. Russia claims over 600 such kills during the war. But Taran was not a suicide mission like the Japanese Kamikaze.

Sounds suicidal to me! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Works fine for me in FB, you just have to keep your closing speed low enough that it doesn't blow you up.

I managed one in a P47 against a Zwilling the other night. Cut the back half of the right side of the Zwilling off completely and just rendered my engine inoperable. I glided down to a perfect landing with no additional damage to my aircraft.

If I can't keep my closing speed low enough, I'll come in quick behind the other plane and at the last moment diverge to one side and as I pass the tail section or wing I roll 90 degrees (knife edge) and then use rudder to fly my "top" wing through the other aircraft.

Obviously this makes my plane a complete write off, but it's usually survivable and bailing out isn't too much of a problem.
