Several years ago we ran a series of challenges for Wings Over Flanders Fields where a bunch of us would all join the same squadron on the same date and report on our luck over 20-30 missions or so. Now that Wings Over the Reich has matured a bit, we decided to do another one for that game. We are flying for the Germans in JG 54. My character is the son of one of the characters I had who was unceremoniously killed in an earlier challenge. The son is named Steinhoff Lowenbrau 2. His father was the fourth son of the famous Lowenbraus of Munich. So if you are looking for something to read over your morning coffee (or beer), here we go...

Not much in the way of evasive maneuvering from that Hurricane ... just sat there and soaked up the punishment. Is that an AI thing from the CFS engine? Even the dire CloD AI would try to avoid being shot in that situation unless it was in 'go home' state.... unless, pilot kill? Hence no bail out?

Just looked at the video before this one too - not much reaction from that Hurricane to being shot either, pretty much sitting ducks. At least they do attack!

Perhaps. Being wounded and being a novice that froze under fire might also account for it. There are definitely gradations of skill from the AI. Some videos back of mine show some particularly feisty 110s(!) before they toned down the flight model for that craft. It's all a work in progress! salute

This is the shot that says it all:

Usually, I'm the guy in the British plane doing the ramming, so a nice bit of symmetry there! rofl


Interestingly, he died just like his father!



Called it in the title!
