fergie Posted February 25, 2013 Share Posted February 25, 2013 I was at my dad's house this weekend, I was teaching him how to fly first world war biplanes on Rise of Flight. I managed a spectacular dogfight involving a Sopwith Camel, a SPAD VII & myself in my Pfalz. III. The SPAD came down within the first 2 minutes of the hair raising battle, I employed a simple bait and boom tactic by climbing in a gradual large circle, the pursuing aircraft was forced into a tighter circle whilst attempting to bring me into his sights, eventually he stalled and had to fly straight. I kicked the left rudder to full and dived onto the SPAD's tail, 1,2 maybe even 3 seconds of burst fire and thick puffs of tar black smoke began to bellow from the aircraft's engine as it fell towards earth. The SPAD spiraled into a river, a fatal impact for the pilot on board. Next I had to take on the Camel, he was faster, more agile and constantly on my tail, I received serious damage to my right wing but not enough to down the aircraft. I couldn't out climb him or even out turn him so I employed another tactic, I allowed the Camel to approach my tail at which point I would jink right and then immediately snap left. The Sopwith would briefly lose my tail giving me enough time to track onto his, the battle lasted a few minutes before I managed to get a decent shot on the Camel. I would out maneuver him briefly before he would get straight back on my tail, eventually he was caught out and unable to compete with my Pfalz IIIs great low level stability, a quick burst from the machine guns and his propeller stopped, victoriously I watched as the wounded warrior was forced to ditch his stallion. I ran out of fuel before I managed to make it home and had to land out about 10 miles from where I downed the Camel, luckily for me I was on home territory. We don't play this game nearly enough, plus it's one of the few online death match orientated games that I'm actually pretty good at. http://riseofflight.com/en razgriz33 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
