Getting attacked when landing


#1

seems a good tactic? pounce on a wounded target easy kill usually.


#2

A successful tactic during the real war as well…


#3

Yep, even Chuck Yeager utilized the tactic.

He finished the war with 11.5 official victories, including one of the first air-to-air victories over a jet fighter, a German Messerschmitt Me 262 that he shot down as it was on final approach for landing

We used to call that vulching back in the day. As in ‘vultures circling the airfield’.


#5

IMO that’s just cheap.

In a real life situation I can kinda understand it. It is war after all and that fighter might just kill you tomorrow. In a sim, especially in MP where the game is about having fun with other people? No.


#6

Right. It was a big no-no. Calling people filthy vulchers was about the most insulting thing you could do.


#7

Hadn’t considered it being MP since it looked more like an AI attack to me.
