Do any of you take a few shots at someone hanging from a chute?

Check six & aim for the cockpit.

I thought about it yesterday but didn't. It's not that I felt it was bad form or something, so much as I was trying to get out of the area and didn't want to waste the time and/or energy.

But speaking of dethroned airmen...

I saw a new one yesterday. I watched a pair of Ju-88s crash land. In both cases, the crew jumped out and ran away from the wreckage before it exploded! Wow- I had no idea stuff like that was hidden in the sim.

Now; had I seen it from my cockpit instead of in the F12 view, would I have fired on them? Yes. No sense letting some English farmer or child get shot by a pissed off junkers crew!


Good hunting.

Not Yet! Most chutes I get a chance at are comrades!

Casey,

Go shoot up a column of trucks, half tracks or tanks. Watch'em run. Be careful when you head back to strafe, the ground comes up VERY fast!!

So far I've only tried to shoot down wingmen (single missions only) who have screwed up perfect bounces by opening fire way out of range and scaring the target off. After the "wingidiots" bail out I try to shoot them if I can! (unfortunately, you can't seem to do this in EAW.......they're impervious to damage)

Something else..........when trying to shoot down a "wingidiot", I HAVE deliberately hosed his plane down well after he was going to go down just to break a wing off so he couldn't bail out..........

Get'm when he lands, he cannot be allowed to spread his genes. It's for the good of the human race.

I used to do it regularly in Secret Weapons. The chute would collapse, and the guy would plummet to his death.

In EAW, I have somehow discovered my moral side and it's just not proper. It's also a big waste of precious ammo.

Mane:

Shot up a small group of trucks in my P-38 last night. Yup, same little grey-uniformed dudes came running out all over the place.

COOL.

They "blowed up" real good too!

Good hunting.

Yes, I remeber Pilot kills in SWOTL.

When I was flying the US campaign I shot down german pilots so that they would run out of pilots sooner. It worked. I punched four poor devils chutes in one mission in my P-51B.
