Hey, do those who like to rip through bombing formations like a hot knife through butter, whats the most kills you got in one mission? Also what were you flying? What was the AI flying, or bailing from?

My P.R. is four, before running out of ammo in a LaGG-3. The victims were 3 He-111H6 and a Ju-87 Stuka. In a P-39Q-10 I managed to whack two Me 323 flying buses and a Hs-129.

What about you guys? No big fish stories, your on the honor system O_o.

Personal best was a QMB....6 total, flying a dadadadaaaa...Buffalo of all planes.

2 109 E4's 2 Me 110's and 2 HE 111's

I got the last 110 with about 30 rounds left, High deflection shot and 98% luck, lol

I don't remember what my best is, or what I was flying, but I don't even bother unless I have unlimited ammo, otherwise it's over fast.

Air to air.

For some reason I have no problems tagging planes even at high deflection with the Ns37 and Ns45 cannon. Hitting tanks with it is much harder for me, maybe because I'm too used to pulling lead on the shots with it.

To add to it all the 23 kills were back in 1.11 where an FW190-A5 could quite easily take up to 4 37mm anti-tank hits :>

Yeah I meant with limited ammo. With unlimited, well the sky is the limit as along as you don't get shot.

You said 23...which plane were you flying?

I think my best was 7 in a ME109F4. Mainly shooting down Lagg3s and Migs. I was super lucky and they were AI.

ya I was in a co-op online with the yak 9t and got a good 12 kills with it and missed a bit with my ammo, and i don't play co-ops very often, but it was kinda fun.

me I fought stukas 190's and 109's (since co-op a few were humans and not just ai)

Yak-9T. The big gun planes like the P-39, Yak9-T, Yak-9K, Lagg-3 37/IT, and the MK103/MK108 loadouts on the LW planes are the way to get the biggest number of kills per mission. Dive down on a target from above and you can get one kill per tap of the trigger. I think the Yak-9T has something like 32 shots in the cannon, so that plus whatever you can get with the UB gun is going to be about it. The P-39's T4 cannon is less powerful than the NS-37 but I think you get more ammo. The Yak9-K's NS-45 cannon is absolutely 'one shot one kill' but you'll only get that one shot per pass :>

In coops or offline missions:

Against bombers: 6 IIRC
Agaist fighters: 8 or 9, I don't recall.



Both were freak missions, my usual is more like one or two.

Once in a QMB I got six Zeros while flying my Thunderbolt
with all AI set to veteran.

I was so ecstatic, I took my nephews for ice cream. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Dogfighting score is negligable, but boom and zoom netted my P-47 with 6 kills against online opponents (4x fighter prop, 1x Me-262, 1x He-111).

4 kills per sortie is common (assuming I make it to altitude).

I don't usually go for mass kills, but I remember one campaign mission a while back when I was defending Leningrad from escorted bomber attack in an I-16. I know I got 5 or 6 planes, including a couple of 109s, I think an He-111 and some Ju-87s. It was fun! But usually I don't rack up kills like that. In "full real" I'm sometimes lucky to find the enemy. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

in a campaign when the beta RC patch came out, flying a Buff, I should of got 11, but end of mission, it give me 6

dove on a vic of Rat's, first burst put first Rat on fire, rolled into 2nd Rat, next burst put that one on fire, finished the roll, and the 3rd Rat blew up, went up and over to attack the I-153's (looks like the first two Rats, one rolled right and the other left and ran into each other, so were claimed as just crashed)

was able to loop and attack the I-153's and blew some up or just cut them apart, got all 6 of them, then went back up and went to work on the last 3 Rat's, got a head shot on one, then my mates came in and finished a Rat that was smoking, then I ran a damaged Rat into the water as my ammo ran out

end of mission, didn't even get a medal !, and only showed 6 kills, checked the map and it said that my wingman got 1, and 5 of the others Crashed, well, duh, HARD to fly with out a wing ?

think this was when there was some complaining about the 50 Cal's being too strong http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
