Am curious if anyone has managed to bounce AI? I've been trying for ages, and have yet to pull it off. frown

First off I tried it during normal missions. No joy. Then I started a normal mission, and went off on my own, usually getting lots of height and flying up sun of targets. yet every time I drop on an AI it always seems to spot me and take avoiding action before I can gain a shot.

If anyone has been successful I would really like to know their tactics. smile

Sometimes in very cloudy weather you can pull it off.

It's always hard to tell exactly what is going on in the AI's mind, but it seems to be possible from below. Although I guess that isn't exactly a bounce.

I was beginning to wonder if anyone had successfully bounced AI. Good to see some have.
Guess I'll just have to persevere. smile

Aye, 'tis the WWI airman's perennial question:

To bounce from above,
Or trounce from below.


(For the record, I have occasionally trounced the AI successfully in my WoFF "casual campaigns" of yore, but never bounced them.)

Good hunting 'gents,

~ For my various FM/AI/FPS/DM Mods. for First Eagles 2, WoFF, RoF & WoTR, and tips for FlightGear, recommended is to check over my CombatAce profile (https://combatace.com/profile/86760-vons/) and to click on the "About Me" tab while there. ~

Yes, but dont wait tooo long to line up a perfect shot at 10m. They will react at a certain distance regardless of bad weather
