    Is it true what I have heard about the Mossie's hitboxes? I understand from others that even near misses from flak will register as hits. Is this true? If so it will explain why when flying the Mossie it explodes on a reagular basis. I realize this planw was made of wood but it seems to get destroyed rather easily when you fly over a single vehiclle convoy or a 20mm AA gun. It seems like the AA is doubled in this plane.

    Any confirmation on this issue would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    The bug on the Mosquito is simply that there is an additional hitbox located above the right wing.

    This has nothing to do with it exploding, though. It's just modeled as a very flammable and generally weak plane.

    Yes but on real mossies alot of the flak hits would pass cleanly right through the wood

    I sincerely wish we had some hard data and information about this, but I don't think we'd ever convince the majority about the strength of the plane, who all just see wood = fragile.

    And if we complained too much it would look churlish.

    Classic catch-22.
