    Holyshit That Beaufighter did what? O_o

    As that title sais, I had a rather strange encounter with a Beaufighter today. I was tailing this Beaufighter in a arcade battle, and when I approched to shoot the bugger down he somehow magicly manages to clip my right wing straight off with his damn reargunner in 1 shot. I didn't know that one 7,7mm were that powerful, untill today lol. I will think twice before engaging a Beaufighter nowdays lmao xD

    Lol dont worry Bone that happens to me all the time and not just the Beaufighter, its every damn tailgunner
    they are way to OP in my opinion.

    A 7.7/7.6 taking off a wing in 1 shot ?? yeah right..and not just at close range..I have had it happen to me while I was at least 1km away
    and not just once ..noooo over a dozen times right now..

    Think about it that gunner is in a shaking planehandling a gun that is movingaround because its hanging on a chain or something like that then he starts firing
    making the gun shake even more and still he is able to aim and hit your plane at 1 km distance...taking ofwings / tails /pilot kills //etc etc

    At close range yes ok , but even then.. and yes i know its arcade but even in arcade its ridiculous.

    Anyway I have learned not to get right behind a bomber but try to get him from below or just BnZ him..
    stay away from those nasty gunners




    For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
    And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed,
    And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still.

    Tail gunners have been way too useless for a long time. Personally, I'm happy to see them doing something for a change.
    Since bombers don't fly in massive formations and there are no fighter escorts, OP gunners are the only protection they have, Just do as BoomBoom says
    Approach from below, BnZ from above (although top turrets are hot also) and don't sit on anybody's six. Click image for larger version.

    Indeed Rayray topgunners are OP aswell but aslong as you can keep up a lot of speed you are more difficult to hit by them
