Well in real life obviously his propellor would chop off your tail and you crash. But in the game the only this can work is if you have insanely low HP. If a 100% fighter crashes into a 100% GA from behind the fighter will die and the GA will keep going at about 75%. The only time a fighter can destroy a GA from behind is if you have low HP.
"It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed."
"The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire."
The three most common expressions (or famous last words) in aviation are: "Why is it doing that?", "Where are we?" And "Oh S...!"
"Airspeed, altitude and brains. Two are always needed to successfully complete the flight."
Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

I will have to take a screenshot the next this happens to me but I can say that the OP is right. This did happen to me on 2 or 3 occasions and my aircraft was at full health. And my Tier 3 GA was taken down by a Tier 1 light :ohmy:

Honestly expected some wise cracks at the heading lol.(Part of the humor) But these here do explain things I guesss I never thought of. I was taking fire of course before they reached me so that's probably it . Thanks guys.
