Hello pilots.
Recently as I play some lower tier battles I have noticed a trend that seems to involve a lot of Tsh-1 ramming. As my Ar68, I recently collided with a Tsh-1 head on, in which I pulled up at the last second but still winged him, as well as collided with one as another plane head on. In both instances the Tsh-1 lived, where my plane was destroyed. Similarly, I saw my brother battling as the Tsh-1 in which a A6M1 was on his tail going too fast, and collided with him. The A6M1 (tier 4 Japanese CB fighter... correct me if wrong) who was at about 80% or so hp died while my brother's Tsh-1 survived.
I know ramming dynamics have not still been perfected, but is there something about Skywhales that makes them harder to ram? Or this is just a Tsh-1 thing? I just wanted to comment that I have seen that plane survive some odd stuff. Any of you notice something similar?

Thanks,
venser

Getting rammed by a TSh requires one dumb mistake. Really, baby sky whales are extremely clumsy and slow.

I see them rammed sometimes by inexperienced pilots (me sometimes) who get on their tails and can't kill them in time and then hit them because they are so slow.

most rams are when the following attacking plane goes too fast and the tsh slows down  :trollface:
then tsh only take like 10% of hp or even lower I seen sometimes from getting rammed from behind

Its a massive plane, makes sense that in a collision it is going to come off better than a fighter. And they better not nerf it because the only reason I play lower tiers is because I love air braking and watching the noobs behind me ram me and then die! Its funny.

Or better yet:

Pitch up - move mouse upwards, or press down key.

I use the 'up' key to pitch up.

Even better, break away by moving the mouse away...

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...

I have been playing Russian GA's almost exclusively. Getting rammed from behind happens quite often especially with the low tier (1,2,3) aircraft. I get more xp when someone dose that than killing GT's LOL. Several battles I have got 2 air kills from being rammed even with the Pegusus. Because it is the rammer's own fault I just LOL.

To avoid ramming the hapless TSh-1 (or Pegas, or BSh-1), do this: 1. Move your mouse to the side. 2. Install your new joystick, 3. Calibrate, and 4. Keep in mind that even if you slow your plane when approaching from the rear, the bomber is likely to be moving even slower. Apply the same rule you would apply in driving: "Maintain the ability to stop within the assured clear distance ahead." Wulf

The TSH-1 is probably my favourite T2 funwise. Ramtastic and it has a great set of guns on it.

They can be fun buggers, had 7 kills in one one fight.
if your flying head on at one in a low tiered fighter is a mistake they arent too hard to avoid :)

ram is a very last resort ! avoid it as much as possible - this thing has a double 7.92 mm rear gun !just slow down and maneuver to expose the enemy to your  rear gun. And if you don't rush at the beginning,and kill enemy rushers GA at first at your base, then go with yours fighters and either support them with air to air or kill ground AA under your fighters - just don't go to enemy base alone- and you'll be very useful even at tier 4 fights.

This is a problem.... GA's getting more experience for a single ram kill then for filling their intended role

it depedns how you understand their " intended " role. for me - it's supporting fighters with firepower and selling your own HP  first with air to air, and only then with ground targets close to your fighters - and i think it works pretty well in my case. Killing only ground targets is sad and not fun. After all it's not a war simulation but a arcade game on ww2 theme.

I had my Tsh-1 rammed into from behind three times in a row within about two seconds. My HP was just low enough that the third down destroyed me.

Well in my Tsh, I was rammed a lot but the heavy fighters and attack aircraft can be rammed because they have the higher hit points especially in lower tier battles.
