Scenario:

Maybe Ghost Town....pilot hops in the HInd. Your a M95 sniping machine on a rooftop across from its pad. You have had your aim set on that cockpit just waiting. Waiting. Finally there is your victim. He's in! You line it perfect. Fire.


What happens for you at this point?

Erection.
Actually, it's never happened to me. The killing the pilot thing, not the erection.

If he's on the ground with a cold chopper, everytime.
As for airborne choppers, I've landed 4 during strafing runs and at least a dozen during hovers or stalls.
M95 is awesome in the right hands. Mine are good, but not even close to perfect.

m95 is a teamkillers weapon of choice on wake or some other air map. as for scenarios as described above i find the m95 to be the worst sniper rifle.  I'd take an svd or a type 88 over an m95 any day.

That seems quite cheap.  I prefer moving targets.  I'll show you one. 

<WP-r> Postal_Worker was the gunner, as you see he crashed.

other than the M95 sights suck, I can hit hovering or cold chopper pilots about 20% of the time.  Moving targets, I'm 0 for something.

Once I master bullet drop, I'll get that thing to work. I've come close, though. In fact, I probably would have had that pilot if one of his teammates in a FAV hadn't charged me and made me rush my shot.

80-90% of the time if the chopper is still.

cold copter on Sharqi from the Construction site to TV? Over and over and over and over and finally get artied by the commander...I generally don't use the M95 anymore, though, as the hard-on of shooting a pilot has faded and I prefer the sights on the L96A1...but often STILL get enough to warrant the attentions of the frustrated commander...

however, i use it on SF maps because i don't like the SVD, well, actually i use the M24 if it's available, but i do use the M95 rather than the SVD, i just normally don't b/c i think it sucks

o well, as for the scenario, never happened, but i've had the option to do it many times... too bad i was using the L96 every damn time, lol

once, and that was when blackhawk whoring was the rage. if was Gulf of Oman, a full blackhawk, and the pilot was good. He hovered and i was on the crane said to my self "hey i heard my new unlocked m95 can shoot through glass." I fired, he slumped on the controls, the blackhack when out of control, two guys jump out- one did not get his parachute quickly enough and the other got gunned down by a fellow MEC on a jeep, the rest die when the chopper hit a building. I was so happy but i only got credit for 1 kill.

I don't know, it seems like i'll shoot about 3 bullets at the pilots head before he notices, and then i waste 2 more clips trying to hit him while hes doing a panicky chopper dance on the landing pad. Then i get knifed.

I've hit about 4 pilots out of the air whilst doing full on circle strafing.
Hovering, every time (may take a few shots though, but if they stay hovering there gonna get ownt)
Slow moving, is 50/50.

I've done it a couple times, but most of the time when there is a hovering chopper i will have the l96a1.....
It all comes down to for me how close and how much they are moving.

Right before takeoff, I can knockout the pilot maybe 75% of the time. I've had 2 moving kills, but they were coming right for me and I died soon after(the chopper crashed on me). No screenies, sorry. But both kills with the nonstationary helo had very slow moving helos that were trying to strafe me or rocket me.

I hate the M95.  It's inaccurate because of the wide sights, it's not ideal for moving target headshots and it's gotta be one of the loudest guns in the game (short of the tank and artillery).  Really, you get one shot and then you have to run because it's easy to track down an M95 user.

On the other hand, It's a good excuse for me to miss with it (damn sights are so ******* massive, grrr), and sometimes it comes in handy.

By the way, is it the only sniper that can go through windshields?  I remember headshotting a driver heading towards me with a M24.
