Is it possible to implement this on some fighters possibly?

Schräge Musik was the term for cannons or mgs mounted on the top of a fighter-plane and positioned so that they fired upwards, not forwards like most guns on a plane. This was used mostly for killing enemy bombers and such.

It's possible to code that, but it would be a pain in the ass to aim them :(

It is already on the UHU (?) on FH42´s Operation Blacknight and its totally useless. The only point in having this would be in a real large air raid map where you have Bombers flyin straight for a while and you can "sneak up" on them.

Since there are (hopefully) no more big Bombers like B17, Lancaster and Wellington in FH², there will also be no need for the "schräge Musik"

I've managed to nail a P-47 on Alpenfestung with the two rear guns on the Ar234, but that was mainly a fluke.

And yes, you've been siggified. I like that quote :nodding:

EDIT: love your sig btw :lol:

It wouldn't be that hard to set up the sights for those. Just make it a sight that you switch to when you press F9, just like on the tanks. You can still fly the plane by intuition, hell, that's what they did in real life. Same goes for the Arado's rear firing 20mms, they had a periscope for aiming.

Seriously? Never tried that, to be honest. Dammit now you've got me curious.
