So, I made this video, sort of tongue in cheek, and have dedicated it to a member of this community.

 

Here's the story behind the video:  I had a mission to complete in Tier 8 -10.  I had to score 3 Assists or 3 Kills against aircraft, while flying either a multirole or an attack aircraft.

Since I have no multiroles at Tier 8+ (all heavies or fighters), I was forced to use my IL-20, in order to complete the mission.

"Gotta shoot planes", I told myself...."Boy oh boy, will Texthor love this!".

 

Well, the map was Fjords, so I decided to try and keep the fight in tight spaces, and go after the enemy GAs. The IL-20 was an easy pickoff (bot GA pilots are single-minded).

Then sure enough, two bots in jets (a P.1056 and a 109TL) tried to dogfight with me in the fjords, and ended up as wall murals (speed kills).

A human pilot in a P-51H got greedy, and ate the blast from a 250kg bomb.

It was almost embarassing how easy it was to finish off the NC 1070 for the win and the Ace.

 

Easiest Ace medal I ever earned......maybe Texthor was right (as long as you're up against bots, and have an advantage in terrain).

 

I chose this particular soundtrack, because the title of the video serves as his personal Anthem.

This one's for you Texthor!  (For once, I think you're right). LOL

ENJOY!

A classic Warchylde fly it like he stole it flick. :great: What Tex forgets about the sky whales is they do the same things that the other planes do but the pacing is different.

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Wow..that is some very old and obscure Rush playing in that vid. Well done from a musical perspective.

I seriously doubt he would even bother watching. Even if he did, the actions and results would be ignored and an old, tired record player would get spun up....

I think y'all are missing the point....this battle proves that he just might be right....at least in this instance....seriously, this was as easy as it gets: oblivious GA bots who don't try to evade; foolish bots who try to fly fast where there's no room and get splattered; greedy players who fly right into a bomb blast.  It really didn't take any real skill on my part at all (well, that WAS a pretty sweet bomb-kill....).

We are disagreeing. Yes the bots are easy particularly the GA bots unless they switch on "We are the Borg" mode but even against bots that was some damned nice fighting.

The problem I have is anytime and everytime sombody posts about a successful battle outcome in a GA, more specifically an IL, he strikes up the band and plays that heavily worn out tune.

 

Yes, GA's bring some of most powerful, forward firing weapons into a battle and any enemy aircraft that gets caught in front of them will more than likely melt like butter. Since these same weapons are designed to shred and pulverize ground targets, their effect on aircraft shouldn't come as that much of a shock to folks.

 

Like squirrel hunting with a .50 cal, what do you expect when that round makes contact?

 

To give him credit, even he shot down aircraft during his one and only battle in his "gifted" IL. However, not going to quote his full and false mantra, he never got a win in it.

Well, am very old and obscure. :B

Fly By Night was my very first Rush album. They still played the instrumental portions of Anthem in concert for many years.  Glad you liked it.

To be honest, I doubt I would have been as successful if I had the bigger, slower guns mounted (I'm still researching the 2nd set of guns... I upgraded everything else first).  So for now, with the four 23mms, it's just a bigger, uglier, slower, and less maneuverable IL-10.

The 57's are mostly useless against air targets but if you do manage to get a hit it will hurt. I use the 57's when I really want a Thunder and nothing else but mount the 23's at other times.

Yeah, since the cannon nerf, I've found it much harder to hit planes with the 37s on my IL-2t. I can just imagine the frustration with the howitzers.

Yeah but the IL-2t has a couple MG's to at least pick up the slack. with the IL-20 you only have the choice of 23's or 57's.
