Yeah, the idea was first addressed in WWI, due to the whole "don't want to shoot the propellers off" thingy.

If I remember they didn't think it through at first and they would shoot the off. Also, I seem to remember stories of even with a system in place the MG's could still get the timing wrong and shoot the prop out, that's why, at least in a part I believe they decided to mount MG's on wings.

One solution was to put metal plates on the prop blades, but this could be dangerous as the pilot was at risk of being hit by his own ricochets.

So do the planes in FH2/1 have interrupter gear? Obviously, not REAL gear but a slight delay in rate of fire?

Or how about no hit boxes for the propellers? that would be much easier =p

I think I'm right in saying that even Max Immelmann shot his own prop off?
