I was just running my 1st test play of my homemade BOB scenario. 16 hurries Vs 12 109E's.6 JU 88's and 6 202's.

In the furball that developed my ai mates performed like champs and in short order the Jerries were dispensed. All that remained was one 202 which began that insane " I'm going to climb to the sun" routine.

I thought what the heck, I got ammo left. He had about 1500 maybe 2000 meters on us and was just a tiny lil spec as me and wingy started our climb.

At around 9200 we are finally getting close, this has taken almost 15 minutes estimated time, in the next two minutes I am confident enough at the range to let fly the 303's.....I adjust my bum comfortably in the seat...get my elbow in a steady posistion...gently grip the stick and start to squeeze the trigger....and run out of fuel http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

I always have just enough fuel to arrive at the scene of my crash.

Any landing you can walk away from is a good one!

Pardon my ignorance...
but how did you get 20 bandits. FMB? I have only played with QMB which has a maximum of 16 bandits.

Substitute the 12 with an 8 and the 6's for 4's or just try some of my new allergy medicine and the math is fine either way.

Hi there,
I had a similiar experience in a AM62 Zero, I was fighting a P-39N1 over the Kuban mountains simulating the Owen stanley ranges of New Guinea.
It was 5 minutes in to hosting my DF server Online he was the first player to enter the server.
I forgot to allow 100% fuel in the zero, taking only 75% from a previouse flight.
Well this P-39 pilot tried every trick in the book from booming and zooming to attacking me head on.
I easily evaded on every occasion, finaly got a burst into the P-39 and he started smoking and then my motor stopped (out of fuel) he! he! ended with a forced landing in Kuban mountains while P-39 was escaping for home.

Lucky for that P-39.

S!
