Relatively minor thing but kinda annoying.

Tail Gunners don't shoot at Bombers from Command Center.

In general I've had times when my tailgunner simply stops shooting. It's not that he's aiming either, he just refuses to shoot for some reason :sceptic:


This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

Not to nit-pick, but bombers aren't hard to farm with tail gunners because you can control you plane speed too

Keep your head on the swivel.

Umm, what? He's saying that you cannot target bombers with the tailgun.  So..you can't farm them with a tailgun.


 

@hoom,  they also will often not target GA (although sometimes they will fire automatically at them, and I occasionally will be able to manually fire at one, no idea what the conditions of this are, altitude maybe).  They won't fire at ground targets in manual mode...a little annoying considering all my bombers think they are very fast GA...and those tents look soooo like they need bullets.


 

On the can't shoot at ground targets thing, I want to say it's a bug.  The vehicle is designed to kill ground targets, afterall.  As for not being able to manually fire at GA or Bomber command bombers, I'm guessing it's to offset the 1000% aim-assist the TG gets.  But, still, there's no reason not to have the TG fire if an enemy is in the firing arc.

Well you may be able to manually target Bombers with tailgunners.

But they don't automatically engage which is my complaint.

this is not true however if they are over bomb point and dropped load they no longer have the targetable info thus the tail gunners cant focus them. Solution is simple get to them before they get there.

Its only not true if it was fixed with the latest patch.

I haven't tested/observed since then, hopefully it is fixed.

 

Would be cool if there were patchnotes so we could see what bugs they fix...
