Default Yak-9T - incredible firepower (or maybe incredible tank's lack of armor?)

Hi DT
Please pay attention on strong disproportion between aircraft's firepower and armor of tanks and self-propelled tank destroyers.
See results of an on-line sortie here - http://www.il2.corbina.ru/sortiedeta...&playerid=2245

Destroyed in only one(!) sortie:
21(!) tanks (2 of them were heavy Pz.VIE "Tigers"!)
6 APCs Sdkfz251.
5 armored Rocket launchers (Opel blitz Rocket)
4 trucks
------------
Total: 36 tanks and vechicles

Please do something about it

Was this an unlimited ammo scenario? If so, with a skilled player I could believe it.

While the Yak-9T is one of the most heavily armed planes in the game, its low firepower and relatively limited ammo make that many kills unlikely otherwise.

No, ammo was LIMITED, that's the point. Almost every shot kills a tank.
I think there is a common problem with armored units..

It says that he fired 200 rockets.
Are you sure this was not some MOD cheat?

I guess no cheat here, just skilled pilot + good joystick & maybe pedals. I think pilot is OK, but wrong is armor model..
I can believe that 37-mm shell could destroy a tank, but not with single hit and 100% probability...

How could he fire 200 rockets in a single sortie? Or did we understood the mission outcome screen incorrectly?

I'm afraid it's only a FBDj's bug. I've looked several players stat pages - most of them have strange figures in section "rockets"
So I still think the "example-guy" shooted only 37-mm gun and 12,7-mm MG..

The Yak-9T carries 252 rounds of ammo, 200 of which hit. FBDj shows it as rockets fired, bug with the database.

I've done similar things, too, 80% hits with the 32 37mm rounds, mean 25 (medium) tanks gone.

So what's your verdict on the issue?
Are tanks too soft, is Yak-9T cannon to strong or, perhaps, the cannon is to easy to use and control? Or everything is OK?

The cannon has significant random spread angle compared to other guns. Although, I doubt it makes much of a difference if fired from point blank range which I assume is happening here.

IMHO moving tanks are too soft.
