Wow, that's what you'd expect to happen but to see these aircraft just fly off after taking 1 - 3x 40mm rounds, doing loops and then making another strafing pass is BS.

The E1 and Hawk81 come apart easy with a bofor round.  When I use the MLE38 I can pretty much tell if I hit a E1.

first time i spawned a spit i took 5-10 20mm MF/FF, 5-10 AI 20mm's, 3 AI 40mm's, 100-300 MG rounds, and still outmaneuvered a pair of 09's then RTB'd, in 1 sortie... i was soo dumbfounded i swore it off and refuse to engage them.

on TS they just shrug off "you have white smoke" all the time.

wow... I cant tell what type of rounds are hitting me 95% of the time when I fly.  I thought I got shot down by a 109F4 by the short rattling bang and flames to find out it was MS3 in a E1...  Actually the only time I know whats hitting me was back flying Axis in T0... I knew it was MGs cause I could hear the Spit or a Hawk cause I could hear the H75 engine... I knew they only had pew pews. Or ai MG fire.  As a allied pilot its AI mg or stuka.  If I have no vis on heavier AA I cant really tell if its a bofor or 20mm. Sometimes I lose the plane to a single hit from either one or sometimes its a few more.  I remember flying a spit 9 and taking 4 bofor hits while trying to straff him and only losing my propeller.. with a little control issues. I would have ditched safely if it was not for that sarlac but for me, it seems like I'm flying match box. I see the videos of planes taking many many hits but I'm never the one who does not lose control surfaces or gets blown away.

it's raindrops and glass smashing in A2A, checked the guy that "killed" me after RTB'ing 230 hits & his wingman had a good spray on me. had visuals on the AI.

 

i remember it clearly cause it was my first non-hurri contact, and it was outrageous. quit TS cause i couldn't stand Listening to spit pilots after that (squad played FAF).

It's just years of practice, that's all. 

The more you use the AA guns the better you'll get. :D

To play as bofors ingame to hunt planes is very easy.

I rember i shot around 30 planes down in one camp wirt my PzIIc. It was not really hard, only move the + in the red ciryle and press fire.

The only aa guner i fear is base21.

no the allied planes just move faster during their attack runs, their fighters have more speed down low as well.

 

any videos with para planes and guys desperately bailing?

But it is the true.

I look again in the old screenshot 35 ea kills with the PzIIc in one campain ;)

I remember that it was not really hard and i do it without Training.

 

Its my view and you have your view... All fine.

Calling mega BS. 

Call it true all you like, doesn't make it so.  Any slob can camp an AF and shoot them on the ground...which is what you probably did.  

I just checked your stats, if it's so easy how come you dont have 500 bofors kills and 50 EA shot down with the 2c yet this map? LOL

a group of crack shots could really shut down CAS/CAP over a target!

at what range do you think you're averaging when connecting?

A related question for CRS: what ranges were the inner and outer rings of the cartwheel sight designed for?

It looks to me as if the gunsight is very inaccurately designed, given that Mo gets a lot of kills at twice the angular deviation of the largest speed/range/deflection-angle-ring.

While looking earlier this evening for data on Bofors cartwheel sights, I came across this interesting data on naval AA effectiveness per round fired, from "Naval Anti-Aircraft Guns and Gunnery" by Norman Friedman.

A 1945 study by a U.S. Navy Pacific Fleet board found that, comparing 0.5" HMG, 20mm Oerlikon and 40mm Bofors using simple computing directors, "overall hitting rates were 0.144 per cent per round fired for the 20mm, 0.284 per cent for the 40mm, and 0.097 per cent for the 0.5" caliber."

Obviously, of course, these percentages need to be weighted by per-round lethality and rate of fire in order to compare the weapon types. The interesting factor is the shared order of magnitude.

And:

"The Mk 14 sight (one of the computing directors they were studying) was about 50 per cent better than control using tracers and a cartwheel sight."

So how were the game's AA guns designed again?  :lol:
