i love to shoot down planes with tanks main gun. i always did this in FH1.

now i wanted to try it in FH2........

i just played on el alamein and there were not much enemies nearby. so i decided to shoot down some planes with my panzer iv f2.

first i tried AP rounds. i shoot at fighters and recon planes ... i often hit them, because i saw the bullet blowing up. but they did not take damage.

so i changed to HE rounds. i hit the allied recon plane. the HE round blew up direct in the middle of the plane. but guess what: it did not go down. WTF ?

i only managed to shoot down one fighter. but in this case the ap round really went straight through its fuselage from the backend to the frontend.

the only plane i managed to shoot down several times is the large beaufighter. but this plane you can not kill with one AP round. the hit just makes it smoke. is this meant to be like this ?

The BF2 hit detection is a mysterious thing.

Explosion/Visual hit != actual hit.

Unless you get a hit indicator(and sometimes not even then) you didnt hit.

agreed hitting planes is very hard you often get explosions and sometimes even hit indicators but wont do any damage say thx to the bf2 hitboxes for this one

just tested this one

i could destroy all planes whit 1 shot of AP / HE/pzgr40 of panzerIVF2 but the recon plane (piper cup) needed 2 shots with AP/pzgrd40 the you hit the wings, but only 1 hit to the fuselage so i guess there is something wrong with that one

I have only successfully shot a plane down with a HEAT round. All other attempts with both HE and AP have failed. It will show a hit and sometimes even a damage indicator but the plan never goes down.

Or it could be intensional, seing the wings aren't as vulerable as the fuselage. A gap in your wing would be damn annoying (losing lift perhaps0 but it wouldn't be directly fatal like a hit int he cockpit. Doesn't explain why the other planes are killed when hit in the wings though... it may be intentional, it might be inconsistent/wrong settings... I don't dare to burn my fingers on this one... devs?

PLanes seem to took damage just fine and other testers agreed. So this should be fixed if it ever was a problem.
