7x A6M5 with P-40M

2 Were on the ground when I bombed them though, and I strafed a AAA gun and Halftrack which took most of my ammo

2nd is 4x Fw190A with 1 Bf109(G?) in a P-51D-5

In AEP, 9 total including 3 Yak-9D and 6 Pe-2 while flying Ta-152H (today actually). Most ever was in EAW, 19 B-17's while flying Fw-190A8.

Edit: settings were full real + externals in both scenario's.

The most I have ever managed to shoot down in aerial engagement was 8(4 262's, 1 FW, & 3 109's). Ground pounding I managed to drop my 500's and 1,000 pounders right in the middle of a huge row of 30+ aircraft destoying them all. The wise mission builder had added a few fuel trucks for accuracy. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif You should have seen the look on my face at end of mission after bagging two air kills, a train and those 30+ aircraft. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

In the original Il-2, while flying the Bf-109 Barbarossa campaign, I got 9 Sturmoviks in one sorty, flying an F-4. Only used my cannon on one of them, the rest I just slid up on from behind and below, and peppered their oil coolers until they started smoking.

They all crashed within 5 minutes, and my wingmen didn't steal a single kill.



PS Just ran the same mission in FB, and only got three, and had to hit 'refly' a coupla times to get that.

Three is my best so far, with externals + map icons. One P40 and two IL-2's in a bf-109F4.

The P40 kill was I think down to some rare coding event, I think he lost his nerve and baled prematurely because I did very little to his plane. Perhaps a lucky shot took out some critical controls, I dunno, but it was a bit strange.

I somehow managed to blow away the first IL-2 in a single fast pass with only three or four cannon shots directly into the engine (from rather close range), it burst into flames in short order. This was my first encounter with the 'flying concrete'. One of my best victories to date.

The second IL-2 was a pathetic contrast - I unloaded completely on it (from sitting on the six) and seemed to do only minor damage. It was smoking a wee bit and leaking fuel when I returned for home. The pilot force landed, quite well, gear up, on ice, about seven minutes later. About twelve minutes after that, the tank blew up, giving me my third kill. Not exactly the stuff of movies.

few times i got 5 kills online on full real sttings in P-47, also 4 kills in 109G-2/R-6 and in Fw 190A-9/MK108. Those big, fat planes like P-47 are the best for that I think. Just fly up high.

In IL2 Sturmovik, 8 in a single sortie (coop mission). I also once reached 1600 points in a ground attack coop (no aircraft kills).

In FB nowhere near as well, but I've also not flown as often as I used to.

I got 10 IL2's flying a 262 a2. What an awsome weapon.

06-20-2004, 01:49 AM
in aerial gunnery practice, 16. I was training to save ammo in a Bf109F4.

In aerial dogfight training, 4. I train almost every day in 1 vs 4 dogfight.

In coop, i think it is five. I did it numerous times. Last time it was on a bomber interception, i was in a fw190A8, shot down three Pe8, and two of the LA5 escorting them. It was my best number of points in a coop, 1400.

So, you see, it is possible, but it depend greatly upon the circumstances.

Lets see here...to be honest, I think the most kills I have been able to rack up in one mission is 6, flying in an A6M5. Most kills for quick missions is 5, flying my Fw190D-9 and commanding 15 others against 16 P-51D-5's at dusk. "Full real" settings.

In single player campaign, full real except icons on the max so far is 7, 2 Bf-109 and 5 Ju-87's with a Il-2 Field modification.

In QMB I reach the maximum of 16, types like FW-200, Ju-52 and Ju-87 with AC with heavy armament like the Hurricane IIc.

For me, 8 in one mission (7 Ratas and 1 Yak 1b, although he was one of those "named" aces)flying a FW-190A4 over Stalingrad.

This one is still really a shock for me, because just 2 kills in one mission usually makes me pretty proud of myself. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif It was just one of those missions where everywhere you turn, they appear in front of you, and every short burst sends an enemy down in flames. Then again, the elevated kill total may have been because I was using "Il2 Shturmovik Stab" to increase the size of the formations and random flights, and so the sky was practically choked with aircraft in this mission.

Regardless, I even still had ca fair bit of ammo left over when I landed. My proudest Il2 moment. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

My personal best is five DB-3 bombers that were attacking my base. Got 'em with my BF-109 G10. I probably could have gotten one more had I not run out of cannon rounds. Two of them were one-shot kills. Gotta love the MK108!

If you do it right, you can take down ANY plane with a single round from this devestating weapon. A head-on shot into the cockpit from the MK108 and it's nighty night.

06-20-2004, 10:42 AM
I got 6 109s flying an LaGG, I think that's my best flying with full difficulty. I was pretty lucky though. The LaGG has a lot of ammo.

Normally, if I get 2 or 3 I'm really happy. Sometimes, one's a tough number to get...especially those dang Il-2s!

My personal best, at least that I can remember, is 10 kills in 1.21 with the P-47D-27. I think 6 of them were Fw-190s, and the next 4 were Bf-109s. Settings were locked pit, minimap on, speedbar on and padlock on.

my best result online on one flight was
9 kills with a 262.
2 PE 8 and 7 fighters mainly las and jaks...

I get the last one with my last 5 bullets.

6 in an offline campaign

4 Bf 110 G-2s and 2 Bf 109F-2s. Got lucky with a 109 and a 110 hitting the engines in the first pass. Then got the other 109 through the cockpit and killed the pilot, finally finished the last 3 110s by setting fire to the engines or inboard fuel tanks.

Oh boy...

In one mission?

Seven. Flying a Bf-109G-10 against P-47's and 51's. Mostly Mk-108 wing breaks, a few engine kills with the MG's.

But, that was the only time i've gotten over four.

Air to Air: Gunnery practice against Ace level Ju-52s: 13 kills with the P-47 with extra ammo on the online islands map in QMB. Full real except for icons (cause i suck). Aim for the inboard wing section, where it joins the fuselage. Unlike the outer wing tanks the inner ones aern't self sealing (just like in real life) and a quick burst at the wing joint will set the plane alight.

Air to Ground: 12 He-111s on the ground and 1 109F4 in the air with a Hurri MkIIc in a FMB ground attack misson i made. Got the last 3 111s when ground fire clipped my wing and i lost elevator control in a dive. Boom! 3 more dead heinies a one very flat pixel pilot.

Best performance against bombers: 5 SB-2s in the Experten campaign (still loving that one BTW) flying the 109E. Got 3-TB3s as well.

Both of these were fairly recent, flying 2.0, with the so called 'marshmellowed' mg 151s.

All my victories where scored flying german planes.

- online,in dogfight, my best score is 4 airplanes downed in one mission (2 Spit Mk-Vb, 1 P-47, 1 P-51) flying the Bf-109 G-2. full real except icons
-online in coop, 4 La-7 flying the Bf-109G-10? in the hungarian mission over Lake Balaton (1 real pilot, 3 AI) full real, no icons
-online in coop, 6 SB-3? flying the Bf-110 G2, attacking from behind and staying out of range of the gunners

-in he mission editor, 6 B-17 in one mission, doing frontal attacks aiming at the cockpit of the bombers, flying the Bf-109 G-2
-in the mission editor, 6 B-25 attacking with Bf-110G-2 with 2xMG-151/20 pods, from the rear staying out of range of the bomber gunners (&gt; 700 yards).

But online, the victory I enjoyed the most was a single kill scored on a Spit while flying a Stuka loaded with 1 SC-500 and 4 SC-50. It was on full real no icons, and I was able to sneak under the unsuspecting Spit driver flying at low airspeed, low altitude. I was just taking-off from my airfield when I saw a spit roaming in the vicinity, looking for a prey. The spit didn't notice me untill it was too late: the only hint he had of my presence was my 2x7.7 bullets hiiting him. He was so surprised, that he made a violent evasive action, so violent that it sended him spinning into the sea. I resumed my flight toward the target, was able to drop the bombs I had kept during the chase for the spit, and went home feeling more like a fighter pilot than a bomber pilot ;-)

06-21-2004, 09:05 AM
In online dogfight, my best score is 4 A/C downed in one mission, flying the Bf-109 G-2 (2 spits, 1 P-47, 1 P-51), full real with icons.

In online coop (hungarian mission over lake Balaton), I downed 4 La-7 flying the Bf-109G-10 (1 real pilot, 3 AI), full real no icons

In coop offline, Bf-110 mission at dusk, I was able to down 6 SB-3 with the Bf-110G-2, from behing and staying out of range of the gunners. I had some trouble with their escort, but my rear gunner hit some of them who headed for their airfields, and I was able to go home with only one engine left.

In the mission editor, 6 B-17s while flying the Bf-109 G-2 with MG-151/20 gunpods, doing head-on attacks and aiming at the cockpit area. (no escort to bother me)

In the mission editor, 6 B-25C with the Bf-110G-2 with 2xMG-151/20 gunpods - 1 during a head-on pass, the 5 others from behind, staying out of range of the gunners (&gt; 700 yards) with again no escort to bother me.

But online, the victory I enjoyed most was a single victory on a Spit Mk-V or Mk-IX, I don't know for sure (full real with no icons) while flying a Ju-87B-2 loaded with 1 SC-250 and 4xSC50.
I was just taking off from my airfield, when I spotted a spit in the vicinity, flying low and at a low airspeed, looking for a prey. I was able to sneek under him unnoticed in a good firing position. He noticed my presence only when a burst of my two MG hit him. He was so surprised that he made a violent evasive maneuver, and went spinning into the see. Having kept my bomb load during the whole affair, I was able to unload it on my target and go back to my airfield, feeling more like a fighter pilot than a bomber pilot http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I love to play online dynamic campaign. Always on the Allied side.


06-21-2004, 09:18 AM
My record for kills in one mission is 5, I have achieved this twice, both in offline dynamic campaigns:

In a P-39N1 - 4xJu-52 transports and 1xBf-109F4.

In an IL-2 Sturmovik - 4xJu87 stukas and 1xBf-109E4. In addition I destroyed numerous light vehicles and the odd medium tank or two.

In both cases I was extremely surprised since my airial gunnery is normally totally ineffective http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif

16 kills in dynamic campaign in early version of FB. I was either a P-40 or I-16-24. The kills were He-111s and Bf-109s. I'm damn proud of that day...

7 kills is my best in an online dogfight. It wasn't actually a dogfight though - I got my Pe-8 around the back of the enemy field without being noticed and dropped a FAB5000 on a few newly-spawned planes. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

It was in the original Il-2 Sturmovik Barbarossa campaign, about the 40th mission, where something like 15 Sturmoviks attack your base just as you are taking off. There were no rear gunners, so the key was to avoid getting in front of them. I caught three of them over the field (took the first one's wing off with the cannon & got the cockpit of the second one as he crossed in front of me left to right), and took the rest of the kills down in a long pursuit, with most of them still in formation.

I had icons on, spent most of my time in cockpit (I consider the in cockpit wide view pretty limiting, in view of the fact that I have two eyes, and my natural range of vision is over 180 degrees up, down, left and right) because I believe the game is more forgiving of your marksmanship in cockpit mode, but I toggled back and forth between wide view and gunsight view as I closed on my victims and lined up the oil coolers. My convergence was set to 150m, and as the range closed to .15, I'd center the crosshairs on the cooler and fire a burst. If there was smoke, I stopped firing and slid on over to the next target. Most took less than a 2-3 second burst to start smoking. Most would crash within five minutes, and take another ten to be credited as destroyed.

Since the majority of my flight was caught on the ground by the rockets, and my leader had rammed his first target, I had them pretty much to myself.

The AI was pretty dumb in the original game, and the trim adjustments were easy to stay on top of, so I was able to take full advantage of the situation. It was just after I'd hit on the idea of putting my trim adjustments on my joystick hat and moving the POV to the throttle hat, and I could keep it steady by applying trim and combat flaps judiciously. The fact that I hadn't had too much coffee that day certainly helped keep my stick steady.

I saved the track & gloated over it often until I sold that computer last year, although with the last patch, it didn't quite run the way it had.

As I noted in my original post, trying the same mission in FB got me a maximum of three, even when I knew what was coming. The AI was more active, and my wingmen (this time they all survived) got a lot busier. The trim adjustment delay in FB didn't help me either.

I only play online...

In a coop with my teammates, using a BF-110G2 i shot down 5 fighters (2 Spits IX, 2 P-47D27 and 1 P38-J), plus 1 P47 and 1 Pe-3 that my gunner crippled with bullets and sent to hell when they was in my 6...

The first Spit was the first plane to go down in this misson, i just managed to dive and get a 1-shot with my Mk108 in his wing, deprivig him of it. The second Spit i shot when he was pursuiting one of the 109's, giving him a Mg little burst that set his engine in flames , blowing him almost instantly. The tihrd plane, a P38, i get when he finished a diving pass on other Bf110 and tryed to climb again. when his speed was ridiculous low, i surprised him with my cannons, cutting his left tail ection and his left wing. By the same time, my gunner was shooting at his first Jug (in the second horde)), the mg burst looks to have cutted his controls and the pilot hit the silk. Then, the second and the third Jugs of the formation passed 500 meters down in a large curve, giving me the oportunity to dive and shoot my last bullets, taking more 2 kills.
When i was reading home, 3 Pe-3 of the 3 horde started to pursuit me. I started a dive to gain some speed and fly for almost 20 minutes at a max of 100 meters. When i was coming to my base, the Pe3 formation was approaching me, and the leader was getting close to start his attack. I feel that some o his bullets hits my rigt wing, because the plane started to do a light roll to the right. Then, my gunner gave him a long burst iin his direction, set his left engine in fire. He managed to evade the battle, and, seconds after, i get a "enemy aircraft destroyed" message in my display. Then, despite the other Pe3 pursuiting me, i managed to try a force landing in the base, coz my fuel was dangerous low at the time. They used to strafe me, but i ended the mission alive, despite my plane was plenty of holes...

In this coop, the axis used to have 8 planes (4 Bf110, 4 BF109 and 4 FW190), withe the 109's escorting and helping the Zestorers, the Wurgers in "freie jagd", and the allies have 5 hordes, attacking with 3-5 minutes gap one between other, of 10 aircrafts each...

06-21-2004, 10:10 PM
I got four in a J8A online-3 I-153s and a single MiG-3 of some unknown variety... I picked off two of the I-153s in a low altitude turnfight, and I got the MiG and the third I-153 after I was bounced at high altitude (the MiG overshot, I got it with deflection, the I-153 showed up a few minutes latter and was destroyed in a turnfight).
Offline I got 6 playing a finnish campaign flying a B-239 against a flight of I-16s and I-153 bombers. I took out the two I-16s which attacked my base [while the rest of my flight was taking off] and proceeded with the mission until the I-153s showed up. I still had most of my ammo, and I flew down the line they formed and shot them down in order.

I had 6 in a Forgotten Skies mission once(all human). I was in a Lagg3 ('41)

Reminded me of a book - I formed up behind some 109F4's, and I don't think they realized I was a enemy, I took them down in order after some crazy turns, etc..

I was flying home low, quite amazed to get 5 kills - as that was my best ever, decided to check my six as I was nearing my base- and a stream of bullets just missed me!

I was able to take advantage of his high speed closure, and we got into a scissor fight. Luckily for me, I was able to get a clean shot off and PK'd him.

Typically a good mission for me is around 3 kills - but to be honest, I enjoy returning home alive - my favorite night of flying was in a df server where I flew the whole 3 hours without dying http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Ofline my best mission was 11 kills, a mix of La-5, Yak-3 and SB-2s I colided with target number 12. Settings were full real.. aitcraft flown was a FW190D

Online my best sortie was in a Bf-109K on Warclouds 44+
Kill 1 a P-51 whose engine I shot out with a single cannon round
Kill 2 a P47, who dived across me giving a me a snapshot that in all honesty with my poor gunnery skills was a fluke and took off a wing... two cannon rounds tops..
Kill 3 a another P51, this I exploded in mid air with a burst of about 1 -1.5 seconds after I dived on it from behind.
Kill 4.. Spitfire that tried to bounce me, over shot and got the remainder of my ammo.. he burnt all into the side of a hill..

I then got bounced by a pair of p-51s and a P-38 just as I was approaching a landing... avoided the first pass by the P-51s but the P-38 shot out my ailerons and elevators... no choice but to bail... got shot in my chute by one of the P-51s and then deathkicked.

The above is the exception to all my other sorties where I've scored one kill and a damaged at the most.
Normally I'll get one kill every 2 or three sorties, and shotdown once for each kill.

The highest kills in one mission for me is 8. This was in QMB, where I set up a mission with me leading 16 A6M2's against 4 B-239's, 4 Hawk 75's and 8 P-40's.

I splashed all the Hawks and four of the P-40's before running out of ammo. My AI comrades downed all four B-239's, but completely ignored the remaining P-40's.

In one mission:

With unlimited ammo: 9 (Ki-84b vs F4U-1As and Hellcats; Okinawa, IJA fighter campaign)

With limited: 7 (F4U-1C vs A6M5, 2 in air, 5 on ground; Iwo Jima, USMC campaign)

12 is my DF room record - using the G10 Bf-109

20 is my coop record , bomber killing with the Me-262 = 8000 points , but i am jinxed - try as i might i cannot get over that , & for the longest time i couldnt beat the 12 kill mark in that same mission

(although , one HL member has apparently gotten over the 10,000 points mark in my mission)

1800 is my G/A record using the IL-2 FM

all were a RTB finish

You is wrong, be sure. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
It was debated and tested here few years ago. You can test it yourself. Put few Mg bullets in the lower opening of the oil radiator and move to the next one. You don't have to blow them in little pieces, you just have to shoot them down. Last time I checked if you hit the oil radiator and see grey smoke coming out of it, that plane goes down in around seven minutes. By the time you finished with the last one you start cashing in. They go down one by one. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Not a myth, you can try it yourself in QMB.

Best I've managed online is 4 kills. 1 in the air, snuck up right behind him in my dora and blew his wing clean off with a half second burst he never saw it coming and I left his wingman in the dust, one of my most satisfying kills. The other three kills were planes taking off or just leaving the airbase. I'm starting to love boom and zoom in the tempest and dora. I don't think I could go back to a spit now.

Online i got 14 or 16 kills on a single sortie in a P38.... ofline around 10 is my max i belive

(this is the report i wrote for my friends at Greatergreen long time ago... on the event)

http://www.greatergreen.com/scripts/ikonboard/ikonboard...=ST;f=19;t=3894;st=0 (http://www.greatergreen.com/scripts/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi?s=7f6f73c669372fa1757b66dfda58d79c;a ct=ST;f=19;t=3894;st=0)

This is me, Aztek Eagle in Aztek Eagle's Deadly base Atacks

that day, it started like any other, me and my wingman Tintin woke up and whent for briefing at our base, when we saw that we had to bomb again that city to the side of that evil fighter base wiht those supper powerfull aircraft, in witch many of our buddys had die in illfated atack atemps, we realize that only chance to win that battle was to atack not the city but instead a well coordinated atack against that evil base.
On one of the several sorties we flew that day, my wingman and i took a plan to fly very low avoiding any sighting of enemy aircraft and atack from a heading witch they would not expect, but sadly when we were half way, i saw a plane flying over us diving, and i scream on the radio to my wingman tintin, but it was to late, i saw him explode, but the fighter lost me, or i still dont know where he whent.
Finaly i sight the enemy base, and i speed up at very low alt, almost hiting some trees in my way there, and there they are the german pilots getting cofee on the ground, when suddently the hear the aerial atack alarm, but was too late, i saw them runing to their planes while i blew up the aaa position wiht 2 rokets, and i pass as fast as i can, and i see some one traying to take off, and i turn imidiestly to him, and from a head on i fire 2 more rokets to him while he is speeding up, and he is blown off the map, and then i go for the next parked planes and i shoot several rokets, and i did several passes till i had no more rokets, at that moement the base was full of smoke colums, and bodys all around the runway, of pilots who were traying to sclamble, while i my self had some enemy aircraft on my six, but i stay alive wiht my brake sharp turns, when i came back for one more pass wiht no rokets left, i see the most beutifull sight for a ground pounder, more than 5 or 6 planes in the ground, and 3 of them where line up sideways, one afther another, we no rokets left, i come in low, and start to shoot like insane, making a line of fire across them, and saw heavy damage to them, as i passed feets over their heads, i speed up and i turn back, at this point i am been shoot at by several planes, and i have bulets holes all around me.... i come back, and the smoke is so big, that i cant see the planes under it, but i know they r there, so i shoot into the smoke dont knowing if i was hiitng anything, but i got 3 victory marketings on that pass, so i sure did hit some one into that black smoke..... at this point i start to think about going home, this was a one way mission, but afther the sucess, i tough if i had live this long, may be i can be allowed to go home.
when suddely!!! a bf109 came fast firing his cannon to me, his face looked full of hate towards me, and wanted me to send me to ####, and my rudder suddently was blown off, i said to my self, this is time to run for life like the brave pilot you are, strangely the bf109 was no where to be seen, and i was singning victory when my engines quit, i had leak all my fuel now, so i look for a safe place to crash land, and i made the perfec no gear landing... and walk away from my plane, and the bf109 made a low pass over my head, i tough he was about to shoot me while i runed for dear life, but he didnt, i was captured and beat up for several days by the angry german pilots who maned to live..... what allowed me to live so much time on that base atack, was that there were several of my camarades fighter in a battle over the base while i atacked...........

Me and my wingman tintin destroy 35 planes on that day, at less than 5 were aerial, i destroy 29, and tintin 6, but he helped me alot, and he was blown off my tail while flying to target 2 times...... the funny thing is that we still lost the mission......

only thing i regret i vulched some one named help like 6 times in that mission of the 29 kill i had.. he surely suffer alot, i am sorry
