not hard when bots get on your tail and catch bullets.

Or some humans for that matter.

 

heck I have noticed an increase in people getting ACE across the board no matter what they fly in.

Everyone except you of course.

I can pretty much get aces on demand in my Fw 190, it almost feels like seal clubbing. :hiding:

There is a solution to that.

Stop chasing me when I'm in a TSh-2, IL-10, IL-20 or IL-40

Stop making head on attacks and expect to survive it.

 

Seriously, the bots are a contributing factor.

They happily sit behind you and die.

    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

all my ACEs are front guns.

I may get 1 TG kill a game and that is all for me.

I dog fight in the GA's and direct my bots.

So the 1 kill rear gunner gets your ace for you........ I have to do it the hard way.....in a very low HP fighter with lighter guns and NO zombie rear

I get aces in them too, just more often than you.

normally it is 2 heavies, 1 fighter and 2 GA that makes up my ACES.

You know the routine.

Take out both high altitude heavies, then take out a fighter as you drop down to take out the GA.

Let the bots finish the rest of the fighters.

If you know a plane has a tailgunner, why do you attack it from the tail end of the plane. There are six major directions to attack planes and various combinations. From a level attack you have front, 2 sides, and the rear. From a 3d perspective you have top and bottom. Then there is any combination of the above. Obviously you shouldn't go head on, so that leaves that option out. The ga will probably be flying low, so attacking it from the bottom is a no go. For the ga's that have a tailgunner you don't want to attack from the rear because the tailgunner will kill you, especially if you stick on its tail(which is really dumb to do). So that leaves attacking from above and the sides. And a combo of attacking from above and the sides. Also you can attack from above and the front or come in slightly to the side. If the ga pulls up to shoot you you can make your pass and the tailgunner is facing down so it won't get you on that pass. The trick is to start your attack and finish your attack out of the tailgunners arc of fire.

Tail gunner represents about 20% of my kills with these planes.

(I have to admit I do install a titanium bathtub for my tail gunner).

 

Most of the kills are pilots, both human and bot who ignore the massive plane that's flying behind them.

Or worse, they just fly head on towards me guns blazing in their lightly armored fighters.

By the time we merge, their either dead or soon will be.

 

Others are other GA that I kill as the mission or opportunity dictates.

That's a lesson that every player should know by the time they move on to tier 3 and up.

Don't know why so many still don't.

I'm sure it is very hard for you. Perhaps you should show us your videos of how easy it is to win and ace in a sky whale. I'd love to be schooled in how OP these legendary beasts are.

After all the only way to prove something is OP is by posting video's over and over again.
