Seems like if you look at them the wrong way they burst into fire!
Well, they were not supposed to get shot. At times they would produce a pretty catastrophic explosion.
If only we saw things like that in IL-2 and DCS!
Actually, I’ve seen this happen in IL-2 with random planes.
really? against what airframes and with what ammunition?
at 4:00 minutes of my vid you can see something like that
Yup seen some messers blow up like that. It’s a great feeling flying through the explosion.
Funnily I remember that CFS2 or even CFS1 had such explosions, usually when you had a plane in front of you that had already damaged fuel tanks, you could then ignite the fuel with your tracers. It looked pretty cool.
I think the probability for exploding aircraft have increased with the latest damage model update.
I was shooting at a Camel with my Albatross when it suddenly blew up right in front of me! An impressive sight in VR and totally unexpected…!
I guess that FW-190 had its fuel tank burst. The vid should start at 4:24.
And as Aginor pointed out, he was leaking fuel before final blow.
First time I saw it I was in a Me-262 and it was a Spitfire that blew up. Subsequently, it happened again in a P-38 vs Bf-109.
I have been on the receiving end of one of those explosions.
Makes the bail out or land the plane decision for you…
That it do @Troll.
here is another example! this was a mig attacking a 262
Lol, Tracks should not be smoother than a field.
Its close held secret that railway tracks are smooth as butter
