Airplane doesn't explode

First of all let me congratulate for Captain Sim for its Weapon addon! It's really amazing and EASY TO USE! I'm new to this whole "weapon business" in FSX, but I quiet enjoy myself Smiley However since I'm a newbie I have maybe a crazy question. I fly with ww2 airplanes now and I wanted to create a surface for myself which is accurate for this whole milieu. For testing I just fly with a Messerschmitt bf109 and as I come across to a a321 I shoot, but nothing happens. No explosion, nothing. The bullets went through the aircraft like I didn't hit it! I believe, I can only shoot AI aircrafts with explosion, but if I'm wrong, please help me, how to shoot any aircraft in fsx. Anyway I bought other as well, but it's surface is much more difficult and I don't like that, however I know that I can shoot even cessnas is other! Do you think, it would be a problem to use other and Captain Sim as well? Thanks for cooperation Wink

You should be able to shoot AI aircraft down with bullets, although it might take quite a lot of them. I tend to fire missiles at them. They don't explode, but they do go down in a trail of smoke.

Note. My favourite aircraft for use with Weapons for FSX is the A2A Wings of Power 2 Spitfire (not to be confused with the newer Wings of Power 3 Spitfire).
