A useful trick for the SE5a
« on: September 03, 2015, 07:11:45 PM »
Hello all,

I was flying on Wargrounds today, getting shot down by a certain J5 Ice Age and I discovered a useful trick to use with the SE5a.

I was fighting at low altitude with Ice Age, he in a DVII. He was able to satay above me although I was staying with him in the turn more or less. I could not get the cowl-mounted gun on him so I decided to point the Lewis up and have a go. Imagine my surprise when I could get hits on him! He eventually won the fight but did not escape unscathed, blowing more white smoke than normal as he flew away. I was able to land in a field.

Pip, pip,
Conky

Yeah, I've finally gotten round to mapping keys for raising the Lewis and firing over-wing guns only, but haven't had a chance to try out the tactic yet.
