FINALLY took a Jet out with a tank

In a game full of awesome moments, including the titular event, taking out a full Venom with an RPG, absolutely ruining the enemy with the LAD-AD/Tunguska (earning a second AA service star!) and the .44 Magnum and even cheekily nicking the Venom to earn several Combat Efficiency Ribbons I finally took a Jet out with a well-timed tank shell and join what I sense is quite an exclusive club!

It was on [The Sandbox], Five Flag Conquest Assault on Wake Island and included a sneaky appearance from our very own Lord Arkhan and SeductiveNoodle who I found in my squad.

Ended the game with a KD of 37-4 and a victory.

El Battle Reportio


So, who else is a member of the club?

i had a jet pounding on me for a while and put a shell right in his nose. a chopper full of people is more satisfying imo

I did it the other day actually, take a Jet out with a Tank round. So I guess I am part of the club. Nice plug about [The Sandbox], I am glad people are enjoying it

Ah, hello! You were my Havoc pilot on Sharqi a couple games earlier! Damn it's nice to see so many users get on The Sandbox.

I took out a jet with a tank a couple days ago. He was hovering though, so that takes away from it I think.

It was a fun couple matches! Haven't had a chance to play Battlefield in a bit so this was great. Oh and you guys were beasting in the chopper! It seems like every couple seconds your name would pop up in the killfeed with a double kill or better.

Man, when we were playing on Oman I was so fucking pissed that the enemy jet rammed us. He bad lucked himself and 5 other people what a fucking douche bag

I've taken out jets with tanks, and it's such a satisfying feat.

The other day, I took out a Jet with an RPG, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever.

Believe me, I've been trying to do this since I first hopped into a tank on a map with jets/helicopters. I've had no luck yet with either, but I won't stop trying! Congrats Rich.

I haven't played for a few days, but last time I was on I finally managed to hit a Viper with an RPG as it flew over on Wake Island trying to take the 'B' flag, +2 kills and I was like . In the same life as I was running to the 'A' flag soon after I also got a gunner in a Venom, the Venom itself was took down in following fire from team mates very shortly after.

But anyways, one day I'll join this club.

Good job again.

Impressive! I've never taken down a jet with a tank shell, quite a few choppers though! Operation Firestorm is a good map for that.

Haven't actually done this yet.


Have, however, done it in a DPV and Growler; and once with an RPG.

A couple jets and a more than a few heli's.

My fav was on Kargh, right off the start my bro and I jump into a tank and as we get moving the opposing jet tried to spawn kill us, I just lifted the cannon and pulled without thinking, the jet just disintegrated in front of us with my bro laughing his ass off "dude was that you?!?!"

Second was on Oman, was support and hiding/capping at A from a heli doing a circlejerk cap and trying to find me. Someone must have put some damage on it, he landed and started to repair, I managed to drop a single C4 on it before he took off again, waited for him to get to a pleasant viewing height and triggered.

Disabled, and as he's coming down for repairs between A and B a tank spawns at A. I hop in, line him up and finish him off. Just as soon as I take out the heli, I see an F35 is hovering B, and darn he's kinda low. Lift the cannon and brought him down too Good bit of fun that.

I've blasted Helis with tanks already.

But it's always more fun taking out aircraft with an RPG.

What's funny is that during Strike at Karkand and Sharqi Peninsula I felt I was getting completely dicked (still ended with a good KD of 2 but it just didn't feel like I was doing anything right!) so when somebody flicked beast mode on I was taken aback! hahaha. As for the Venom, I love it and hope to get it pretty high up in my vehicle stats. A friend of mine is a absolutely brilliant pilot and we basically run the thing as an attack chopper with the added bonus of dropping one or two teammates off. We've got into countless scrapes with Havocs and Kasatkas but we have always came out on top.

Don't tell anyone, but this was actually my second jet kill in a tank - the first was a hovering F-35 but that was too easy to consider 'joining the club' :P
Keep trying man! It'll come in time, best to go for the pilots who like to engage ground targets - they make their run, you shoot them in the face! Everybody's happy!

Except the pilot.

Those hovering jet kills still count in my mind, the guy thinks he'll get easy kills hovercrafting, well fuck 'em!

count me in....I've shot down quite a few planes and choppers with the barrel of my little tank.

lot's of F35's on WAKE where they would fly in and slow down near our flag to capture it. Easy target. But other planes at full speed as well when attacking my tank;

And every low flying vhopper pilot is a victim of my tank shell....but lots of chopper pilot know just how low they can go to be out of range of the barrel elavation.

But I've taken down a few...starting to do this a lot in BC and continued this in BF3

Damn overachiever!

I shot down my first jet with a tank on Kharg Island after spawning on the US side. I rolled up the hill towards A and he was making a strafing run at me. One shot made short work if his ass. Last night I shot down an Attack Chopper on Kharg Island as well. I don't know if he saw me or not. I suspect he was going to try and capture D but flying at street level towards a tank is not a very brilliant idea.

It's not quite as hard, but I love shooting down Scout Choppers on Nosharh Canals with tanks. They just make such compelling little targets, and damned if they aren't generally a double or triple kill! As a matter of fact I shot Hent High down last night on Damavand Peak. Damn did that feel good!

There's always one that has to come along and make us look shit, isn't there? haha

I share your feelings on Little Birds. There's something about them that just feels awesome to shoot down - even more so than Attack or Transport choppers.

Speaking of anti-air you'll all call me a fat liar when I say I went from 20 to 35 total IGLA kills over the course of a couple of games last night. Did the patch make them worth a damn again?

I'm not sure, but now that you mention it I might have to give them a whirl again. I'm up to a whooping 15 kills with my Javelin now, and depending on the map, I may go ahead and see if I can earn the Mastery Dog Tag for it. It's definitely a lot easier to rack up kills when people are painting choppers with the laser designator.

The master tag for the Javelin is a thing of beauty, I should know I wore it myself for a while!
