I don't think so, but if you're having trouble with ground targets, I suggest you check out LMG's Ground Attack guide here: http://forum.worldof...ff-up-properly/

 

Hope it'll give you some pointers!

The most we have right now is the health bar over the ground targets. Sadly, it doesn't display the health of each building, so you'll have to guess which ones are more beat up than the rest

Individual pieces has never shown health...the overall health does give you an idea how much the individual piece has, though.

 

...I think it IS there, but getting it shown consistently is impossible.



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

welcome to the game, and welcome to the forum!

 

you'll have a good time in one, and you'll learn a lot in the other

 

you'll have to figure out on your own which is which...

I will say unless you are flying a GA, you are not doing much damage with your guns. The bombs do okay, but if you are a heavy or multi-role shooting down planes is your first priority. Hit ground targets with ordnance as targets of opportunity. 

 

Welcome to the forum! Look forward to flying with you in game!

Actually, certain aircraft deal very respectable damage with their guns. Out of the top of my head, the Hurricane II almost works like a mini-GAA with the quad 20s (if you can keep them from overheating) and the quick-reloading bombs (didn't try the rockets), but I still say "clear out aircraft first, then go ground pounding". The only exception being doing a quick hit-and-run on an almost captured sector to flip it in one go, but those are rare cases anyways

i'm always shocked by the amount of damage that i do with the T5 stuka... super long range guns slung under the wings

 

pair them with marksman one and two and eagle eye... and a nice chianti = profit!

Too bad the Hurricane IID which has the same gun format is a piece of crap
DICTA BOELCKE for WoWP
    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

Multiroles with big guns usually have to shoot at ground targets twice as much as a GAA with a big gun. That said, after watching the Hurricane IID in action it's pretty competent all things considered (its 40s have double the rate of fire of the Stuka's 37s)
