Ho.... How....

H8K is such a big target most fighters can get you with your gun being hopelessly outranged, and he took on an entire team of spitfires?

Wow...

Yeah, it was a perfect storm of cockiness on their part, and a lack of cannons. Only two of them had cannons IIRC, and I disposed of them fast. The rest were needling me with 7.7mms, but their aim sucked. They could have lit up my engines and wing tanks, but they focused on my fuselage instead. They had all gotten cocky too, as they had wiped my team in like five minutes, so one after the other they got sucked into tail chasing me on the deck.

Many moons ago it could've been done, but these days all .303 into anything that isn't vital will do is... nothing. And there's a lot of nothing on the H8K.

I figured it out after the tweak to .303 when I took my hurricane II up against an HE111, gave him the business, and instead of dying like he would've previously, he flew along entirely unaffected.
