DCS Spitfire is a superlative module of the series. I have spent many hours practicing takeoff and landings and now have 75 successful landings logged. Now that I can get this outstanding aircraft back in one piece I have been trying my hand at some combat.
Using the Normandy map I had to blow things up. Those things come in the form of fuel trucks.
Spotting the convoy (which is quite difficult on this map) I roll into set-up for the strafe. After some practice you get a feel for the right time to do this but if you give yourself time and try not to rush you soon get good control.
I level off the wings gain some speed and then start to level out to line up the target.
A smoking target from my AI teammate marks the area nicely for me. The fuel truck is a few seconds away from getting a tank full of 20mm cannon and .303 calibre from my browning machine guns.
All guns ablaze the rounds rip through the truck with ease. You can’t help but have a massive grin on your face when you are letting rip in this phase of the maneuver.
A view from the office. Now it’s starting to explode. A successful mission. Time to fly back doing some barrel rolls, a good landing, and some tea.
