    It’s still August 10th, second scramble of the day. I probably just got back with a lorry after crash landing and destroying my hurricane and I’m off again.

     

    Doesn’t go well. The rear gunner in the Stuka is obviously a former Olympic sharp shooter. And skills ny engine within second.

     

    I gilde towards land for several minutes having not really done anything of value. And destroying my second Hurricane of the day.

    I might get shot for collaboration with the enemy soon.

    Lol, you left that plane looking more like a “quick build” model kit.

    Next time maybe a high angle head on dive attack?  Then you can come back around using the dive speed to hit from behind?

    Straight on the nose is the most effective way to take out bombers, even those heavy B17Gs with nose mounted duel .50, you are closing so fast they usually  can’t get a beat on you. The problem is.

     

    1. To get in a position to do a head on attack.

    2. After the first attack,  you have to catch up with the bombers fly past then several km. Then do another attacks.  This means if the bombers are close to their target, you might only have time for one attack.

    3. If bombers have escorts, you can can just forget about a second pass(granted this is true for any attack direction)
