Another wonder of SF2's AI

Recommended Posts

Today I've got an enemy airplane killed, without a single shot.

Flying a Hunter 6, I've overshoot an enemy who suddenly has deployed his airbrakes. Pulling hard on the stick, non intentionally I pointed the jet stream to the enemy. To my surprise, he was immediately caught fire falling burning to the ground.

I didn't believed that the AI is so sophisticate, to allow this to happen.

My guess is that you probably hit the other aircraft with your own. Tried it a couple of times my self sometimes without visible damage to my own aircraft

You could be right, but I didn't fill any impact or any deviation in the flight path.

There was obviously no damage seen on my aircraft, and believe me I've searched for any sign of damage.

What about the debrief?

 

According to the stats in the debrief screen: 4 aircraft were killed by hits of cannon fire and one N/A kill.

Yeah, mid-air collisions are umm.. broken. In most cases one of the planes takes severe damage while the other one gets away unscathed. I once sliced a wing off a Beagle on F-4 by ramming, with no harm to my plane.

I'm not sure if they are broken in that manner. I ran into a Yak-1 with my Spit, the Yak went down immediately, my Spit took damage and went down seconds later. At least I had time to bail out.
