that depends, i have had perfect games before, 65 and 0 on Gazala, must have taken down at least 10-15 Hurricanes. and no just because I know how to fly doesnt mean I don't ever die. it takes 1 well placed bofors shot or 3-4 blasts from the 20mm cannons to take out the 109, most of the time when i do get taken out by a plane, its when hes coming in from above and its usually when I'm on a strafing run or engaging another plane, or typing.

There are plenty of good pilots from way back in the day, Holster, The Cleaner, Adder, Lukestral, Mosquito. And most of them had joysticks.

seeing the names mentioned you seem to get your selfconfidence mostly from playing at US servers. maybe you should have cared to visit the much more populated european servers for a better comparison about who is an ace and who thinks he is one.

but as alfi stated, futile & past discussions are not realy worth the effort. anyway, nice hints for aspiring pilots.

The problem with flying on Euro Servers for Fh1 is the hits dont register, Ive played on TDP for FH1 and had trouble with this, just like Euros have trouble playing on American servers.

Having been violated by many a strafing run I can honestly say Hitman is up there in terms of skill level. I will add though that many guys don't bother going AA because he (Hitty) has all the locations memorized and can nuke them every time. Spending that much time playing, Hitman deserves to be that good. What I want is mobile AA or fixed multiple batteries (First Strike has them) so I have a better chance to provide suppression and or get the kill.:naughty: I will never compare in pilot terms but as long as I have a chance every now and then to reap revenge I am cool.

we all know how proud you are when you get you "boss" kills sheik, oh the excitement and satisfaction is sometimes just a mouseclick away, I actually suggested they add mobile AAs in a post a few weeks back, with the sake of getting some challenge. Forgotten Hope 1 was so much more challenging to pilots because there is that mobile AA you had to worry about. FH1 Gazala and El Alamein were tough if they had decent players on AA weapons.

I did have a blast with the Stuka on Crete a couple of nights ago, the axis had the bleed going on the allies and they were confined to the Monastery and the Harbor, I felt like dickin' around in the stuka and was just strafing with the Mgs, man was I having a blast, the stuka flies so slow you can actually see the expression on their faces as they are diving for cover, this 1 guy with a bren (Might have been BupoTheFox) was blasting at me as i was diving at him and 1 bullet pierced the cockpit and I bled to death, that kind of sucked

that's realistic anyway :p...but stukas are really flying coffins if AA cover is good.

One of these days you will eat a thermo bomb courtesy of Moi. Just fly a touch lower... I have thought about just camping you on your reloads in the main but its too far out of my way. Mind you I don't get on AA very much anyways, it never seems to be close at hand. I will pop off small arms fire and I have shot down planes that way but it depends on volume of fire and most guys just don't chip in. Mobile AA is the way to go, if that's too hard then maps should have elements (like Anti air) that are located outside of the main rape areas. If they don't want to introduce much mobile AA, I would strongly recommend that the Coders try and link weapons fires to introduce a battery effect. The Player sits on one weapon but a couple others shoot at the same area at the same time. I do have a flying question though, do most guys use the aim to bomb with the Stuka? I have been enjoying greater success just eyeballing and am curious if the flying phenoms will grace us with an answer.

I dont use the Aimer to bomb no, the zoom in feature cuts off your peripherals and you really dont need to zoom in to spot that ground target, the aim is for the guns, hence gunsight.
