Killing barrage balloons

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to kill barrage balloons? I have set up a mission with a  Spad XIII with balloon guns but the balloon does not take damage and the aircraft can fly through it with no damage. Is this just the way it is or am I missing something?

The barrage balloons don't have a damage model. They are only intended to be seen in the distance over Moscow.

That’s what I thought, with the red star on the front. 

 

Hopefully we we will get an observation balloon for use on the WWI front. It’s going to be difficult to do much without that since many of the late war missions revolved around destroying observation balloons or escorting missions to do so, or intercepting others trying to destroy yours.

IIRC, I've seen 1 multiplayer map that had a barrage balloon at an objective.  You couldn't kill the balloon by shooting it, but you could kill the truck it was attached to and eliminate it that way.
