    Shot a 109's tail off with .303's!



    Can't believe I'm still seeing things in this sim I've never seen before. Bloody wonderful stuff!

    Not to be a nitpicker but you shot off the tail control surfaces, not the tail itself from what I can tell. Still a very rare sight for sure and some good shooting!

    I did that in a Hurricane a few weeks ago. It had never happened to me before. I guess firing right at the convergence distance is what does it.

    A factor is if you hit the gas tank and it explodes... helps with the tail separation.

    Looked like you did that too.

    Although normally the best way to get an explosion in the 109 gas tank is by firing from below and behind.

    Tank is located under and behind the pilots seat... although it is protected by laminated aluminum armour plate from directly behind.

    ehhh this was amazing. some years this had already happened before the new updates of the game, since the release of the cliffs and second time I see 109 lose its tail. Check out the video link I made of the event there. Thanks for sharing
