    Well, a 90% wounded gunner should not be doing much at all. I can't compare with us, but I think that at 90% we lose elevator control, it is hard to turn, etc. We basically go for a somewhat controlled crash. If we get lucky, we ditch into a pond. That gunner was jolly good bringing that cannon all the way to the right.

     

    Several times I've been completely 100% out of control while severely wounded. The aircraft essentially would act like it would with the pilot killed - a death-spin. No control surface input would do anything. Some of the Bosches have also reported not being able to bail past a certain level of injury. 

     

    I would imagine that a gunner wounded that badly also wouldn't be able to do much of anything - much less swing a heavy Becker around like it's nothing!

    I need to check back because I had seen two contacts prior to this that looked like they disappeared as I was watching them. But I probably just lost sight of them. They were a long ways out, probably 10k, and we moved to attack something else and I completely lost SA on those two. 

     

    Yeah, I saw em too. In fact, I'm sure one of us said on comms that we were expecting high D7s from the position those two approached from 😄

    Hey look! More invisible D7Fs! 
     

     


    I found the same moment from Hotlead's perspective! I'm thinking that it looks like he may have become visible when he cocked his guns...

    I've yet to see an invisible plane.:biggrin:  In your video, what was 2nd DVIIF firing at?  Looked like he was just shooting randomly as he flew away.


    Assuming a 3rd invisible D.VII F that he doesn't get along with...

    Huge lag hit at the end (if it was caused by ping). Good flying, just one spin!


    Yep - to add further insult to injury my pass on that Halb 89% wounded that gunner!
    One spin and one 'flop' out of a left turn ;)


  6. Oh! Before it slips my mind...

    The clerk's are working on the award system under threat of transfer to the front. Everyone's patience and understanding as we continue to work on this pretty significant undertaking and improvement for everyone's benefit.

     


    I wanted to add in that this was being worked on, but ran out of space in the section! ;)

    the best FC pilots should similarly have to visibly demonstrate who they are, rather than hide in anonimity.


    I'm not so sure about that. You'd probably end up with a few players suicidally chasing the 'good' guys just to kill them for bragging rights. Back in RoF I remember hearing tell of a certain Squadron who would deliberately ram high-scoring pilots just to end their streaks. 

    I also think there's something to be said for 'Ace Anonymity'. The only pilot that I've heard of being recognised by their opponents in the air was the Baron. Apart from that, even with the fancy colourations, most pilots didn't really know who they were fighting unless the same two squadrons ran into each other several times. 

    That being said, I have my colours on display:

    Once the Germans get a bit of a better engine, and when they expand the timeline backwards a bit then the Alby (hopefully we get the D III too!) and the Pflaz should fair better. These planes weren't as outclassed as they are in the game, it just happens they are the most obsolete aircraft being the oldest at the start of this time period. They would usually be facing a fair amount of older craft aswell but instead its mostly camels, spads, and a few R2bs


    I'd say they were pretty badly outclassed....when they ran into the top Entente scouts or Bristols!! But, yes, there was plenty for the Albs and Pfalzes left to prey on apart from them. No. 3 Squadron RFC springs to mind....poor bastards flew Morane Ls until something like November 1917! 

    I'd love to see the D.III. Was always my favourite Alb to fly.
