Very good PDF. Next:Wich type of axis fighter was the first to destroy a B-17 bomber in ww2 ?.
a) Bf-109.
b) Ki-45 Toryu.
c) A6M cero.
d) Nakajima KI-43 oscar.
E) BF-110.

Amrit
10-28-2007, 11:59 PM
Well, the first B-17 destroyed actually made it back to base but disintegrated.So not technically shot down. That was one of the B17 acquired by the RAF - AN523 (42-2055) which was damaged by enemy aircraft over Brest 16 August 1941.

However, the first ones actually shotdown was AN525 and AN533 which were shot down by Bf 109s near Kristiansand, Norway 8th September 1941. They were both from 90 Squadron

Taking a big guess here, a 20 mm cannon, hope there is no reduction of score, even though i have not answered any

Hmmmm, a bit poor answer isnt ?

Amrit
10-30-2007, 11:39 AM
I'm rubbish at aircraft guns but the barrel on that doesn't look 20mm. More like .5 or equivalent. A very wild stab in the dark - 12.7 mm Universal Berezin?

RifleMan20
10-30-2007, 04:48 PM
am not the aircraft type you know

tankgeezer
10-30-2007, 05:32 PM
It looks like the Berezin with slight difference in details, perhaps a copy, or a different variant. looks like P.K. went deep into the knacker files to get this one..

Panzerknacker
10-30-2007, 06:34 PM
Deep?

It was very much used in ww2 and is not a 12,7mm. Note I said "cannon" teorically the cannons are 20 mm bore or more.

tankgeezer
10-30-2007, 08:16 PM
thats true,, just commenting on its look.

i will say that its a Breda20

Well, I have to admit that I was pretty laisy lately, so i have to counterpise all those furloughs. :)

However, it has to be emphasized that aforementioned airplane actually represents the Soviet post-war heavy ground attack airplane.

No my dear Mr. Drake – only the first prototype, finished back there in 1936 actually used Gnome-Rhone 12N16/17 radial engines, with respectively 900 HP (662 kW). All serial built airplanes have used Piaggio PXI RC-40 (1000 HP – 736 kW) or Fiat A 74 RC-38 (618 kW – 840 HP).

This is a easy one:

Wich type of aircraft scored the first air-to-air victory in ww2 ?

Amrit
11-19-2007, 06:45 AM
If we accept that WW2 started on the 1st September, and not the 3rd (when France and Britain declared war) then it is probably the Ju 87B (T6+GK) from I/StG2 "Immelmann" flown by UnteroffizierFrank Neubert who shot down a PZL P11 flown by the CO 121Eskadra Mysliwska, Mieczyslaw Medwecki. He was killed. This occurred at either 5.30am or 7 am (depending on which account one reads).
