Encountered a couple of interesting things recently.

Using M95 on different occasions Ive noticed the following.

Close range got +50 vehicle damage sniping Blackhawk Engine or Rotor shaft.

One time got +100 vehicle destruction credit, sniped front of blackhawk turbine.

Only once so far, took out Apache Gunner, head on shot at close range :)

I've taken down choppers too with the m95. Wasn't the m95 designed as a high powered armour peircing rifle??

I must admit I've been having great succes with the grenade launcher in close quarters combat maps as my primary weapon.

The .50 sniper rifles are designed as anti vehicle, not really anti personnel weapons. Indeed, with a lower muzzle velocity than most other sniper rifles, they suffer from more "drop" than most sniper rifles. But they will generally decommission any light, non armored vehicle.

In spite of certain SAF members claims the contrary, the .50 is not an immensely accurate round, indeed, a .223 is a far more accurate round than the .50. The .50 does not suffer wind or deflection effects as much though!

Ok, I will go there; - except when in the proximity of Mayhem after a feed and beer session :P

Yep, know the real weapon is supposed to be but it was my understanding that it wasnt possible to have any effect on the heavy attack helicopters. Its back as far as BF 2 that any in game gun had any real effect (not including rockets or pilum)

I must admit sometimes I'll waste ammo trying to get blackhawk pilots, very enjoyable :laugh:

If they're not very skilled pilots, and flying directly towards me, I'll always waste ammo firing at the cockpit if I have the right gun. Like a high-dmg LMG or Assault Rifle. I've gotten the pilot 2-3 times or so before. Totally awesome fun. Like something out of a Rambo movie... lol

I got 2 Apache Pilots as fast moving targets at good range tonight :woohoo:

Lucky really as it was a case of estimate a good lead and height on the target and blind fire.

Good thing is the gunners went down with the heli as they didnt realise the pilot was gone quick enough lol.

The second one threw a fit which was funny.

Phantom turned up just after the second one, wish Id had a witness :)
