I'm just surprised the 20mm (iirc...could be a 37mm) cannon the Bf-109 sports didn't rip the wing off completely.

If he used a 20mm cannon at all.

And no, not all models of a Bf 109 have a 37 mm gun, actually only a minority. The most famous version, the G or Gustav, has no such thing: it has a 20 mm autocannon firing through the propeller hub and two 13 mm guns.

Your damage looks pretty much like a 13mm gun shell, but that also depends on the computer damage model.

The G-6U4 variant has a 30 mm MK 108 gun. But that has very low range.

The E-3 model (which is what he was flying) was outfitted with 2x 20mm MG FFs in the wings, and 2x 7mm MG17s in the nose.

Regardless, it was a thrilling dogfight :D

What the frak is going on with Google and Youtube?
I can't comment on Youtube without linking up my Gmail profile and making Google+.
If i do, i can't set my channel to not display my full name as channel name (in cyrillic, no less), if i don't i can't comment or anything, including answering in my own.

What are they up to this time?
Was there some anti-monopoly lawsuit that required Google to lower Youtube's popularity or something?

Improve the quality of the comments... as if the users become more intelligent by just using their real fake names.

I got no problem using my YouTube name with Google+ ... But I completely agree with the bad move they made here.

I just don't comment anymore. I do apparently have a Google+ account I never intentionally signed up for, though, since an orbinaut added me on it.

Do you lose credibility in discussions on YouTube comments about Metal if the other videos viewed by you are "cute kitten", "incredibly cutish kitten", "little golden cuddles you to death" and "Russian road rage compilation"?

Search results for my real name on google: Still zero. I'm seeing this as a success but it also means I never accomplished anything worth mentioning. Well, I have memorized all scenes of Space Seed and the Wrath of Khan in the correct order including their plot, which is nice.

I chose the option of keeping my YouTube username for comments rather than showing my real name. But sometimes I forget to uncheck the "also post to Google+" box...
