Would be nice if the scope view in tanks of the bullets arching was fixed where you see the bullets going downwards in the scope view for some reason but they actually aren't they're hitting where your crosshairs are, frustrates me when i'm in the tank quite alot would be nice to have it as a fix in 2.15?

Man, it's cause MGs aren't laser guns... You see thx to the tracers your hail of fire going down with the distance cause of the bullet drop. So don't expect to see this "fixed" ;)

You might very well think that

Yeah... the bullets *aren't* hitting where you think they are. They are indeed going downwards, as the tracers show.

Hmm my problem actually has been the contrary. Sometimes it seems the tracers do not correspond to the bullets.

From the tracers it seems the bullets are going downards, but I've still have managed to hit infantry that is way up where the tracers are falling. Aren't the bullets supposed to fall where the tracers fall? :confused:

tracers and regular bullets may not have the same weight...

On the allied plane's MG's, there were a succession of one tracer, one AP bullet, one explosive bullet, another AP and another HE, then the same serial again.

The tracer to see where you shoot, the AP to make a hole in the fuselage, and the HE to explose in it passing thru this hole.

But in fact pilots had to count with the fact that AP bullets were heavier than tracers and HE, and so had a more important drop.

There isn't a difference in weight. If there is, its not going to affect anything.

Bullets drop. The greater the distance, the greater the drop. Bullets loose velocity. Which is why they drop.

Hmm then it seems most if not all tanks tracers are heavier than the bullets...

Pay more attention in school kids. Does Newton or Galileo+Pisa tower experiment ring any bells?

I personally haven't had any problems, rounds have always gone where the tracers are pointing.

I recall tracers were just for looks.

Yeah, it's not the weight difference that causes different arcs, it's the velocity difference. Two rounds fired at the same velocity, regardless of weight, will have the same arc (unless they go far enough for drag or wind to have more than a negligible effect).
