Having a whale of a time, flying around on the new Arras sector map for IL-2 Flying circus.
It’s a great feeling seeing the successor to Rise of Flight take shape.
Anyway, I have somewhat of an AAR to tell.
I set up a dogfight over Duai, Camel vs. Fokker Dr.I at 1500m. Head to head.
We chased eachother around for a bit, exchanging bullets. Mostly tearing canvas.
Then I got a good burst in, and the Oberursel of the Fokker started to smoke. The pilot climbed out to ride the umbrella elevator. This is always a satisfying end to any dogfight.
The Fokker started to spiral slowly downwards, flying around the pilot under the parachute.
As I was looking on from above I wondered what the odds would be of it hitting the chute… And then, that’s just what happened…!
The chute collapsed and the pilot fell towards a certain death while the Fokker went into a spin.
Details like this always amaze me.
Looking forward to the career mode…
