i guess it is because they bail from the plane and so they suicide as most pilots use actualy the engineer kit.

I think pilot kits should be enforced to get in a plane. Just like in PR, when you get in a special asset, it doesnt allow you to control it without the needed kit.

Here's where I stopped listening.
Different philosophy of game. And besides, if they are forced to get a parachute, won't that make the dogfight MORE pointless? They'd bail at least provocation.

It all works out. It's rare to see people bail without a chute.
And we maintain the freedom to drive a tank with a sniper rifle ;)

Although I think placing parachutes right next to airplanes it better than placing them somewhere away.

I'm fine with that most people don't want to use pilot kits in planes but having a limited kit while operating a tank is not a cool thing to do. If you are going for a tank, please leave the limited kits alone and take an unlimited one. The limited SMG is not very effective inside a tank.

I always thought that point of dogfight is to shoot down enemy fighter

That's why you go prone on the ground and shoot them down with an MG. Then everyone knows how big of a badass you are.

I always use Engineer Kits while flying. Cause not every Airfield repairs your Plane. Also yestarday was a good Example - i played Mareth Line in the 109 against Fair_Player who is a better Pilot then me and he was flying the Spit IX (which is better then the BF). Shot my Engine down, i managed to land on the Big Hill in the Middle of the Map - repaired and took off.
