    111 formation and escort intercept

    71st AH Rebel located a large formation approaching English point and directed a number of us to intercept- this was one of the most exciting bomber intercepts I've been involved with and I think its resulted in some good footage.

    Also flying- Eshark, Splinter, Kansas and others - Enjoy

    Great footage, Paranoid! Excellent flying and ammo management.

    Thanks for sharing.
    I hope TF5 will fix this "open canopy and hear the 109 on your six" and the "hurricanes don´t need 2 wings to fly around"

    That's what happens when blue fighters ignore the support request that I sent 40 mins before this bomber disassemble. Against 4-5 spacemarine spitfires we need at least 10-15 bf109s. In fact we had only 3 fighters there... So it is what it is...

    ATAG_Paranoid what do you think...How many G the pilot had to endure during the maneuver in the first minute video? Spit FM? Lets go to hell this FM and Spit with that "piece of what"...

    Well, I have just watched this footage. What to say? Well done! Keep going this way. And maybe then less and less people will fly on the blue side in such bomber raids which we had many of it, but too little succesful raids. After what I have seen especially that incredible turn in the beginning, engine coughs that doesn't bring any effect and poor bomber gunners, I can say... Ok you won. You won this battle. This game is fully yours.

    Cheers!

    As a 109 pilot the only problem I see in the video is, as was pointed out, the lack of enough escort.
    Granted, it is VERY hard to stop them once they get close to the bombers as all they do is turn which is the maneuver the 109 can't follow. They have to be intercepted before they reach the bombers.
