3 strikes rule is just the RoF's pilot's damage model. 1st wound gives you the red splat vision, 2nd wound a heavy red veil, 3rd wound - you are dead. 

 

That is not correct.  Most often the pilot is not killed until there are 4 hits.

But can be killed with ONE hit.

I've seen pilots killed by 3 hits, but never 1.  Post the stats if you've got them.

I do not know if MP is the same as SP, but I have always assumed so. I am sure I have never been killed by a single bullet in SP, or even two for that matter. Whether it is always 3 I cannot say for sure, but I use a rule of thumb that says break off and look for friendly base after 1 hit (unless fighting on is actually less dangerous), emergency panic landing anywhere ASAP after 2 hits.

But then it is a long time since I got killed by MG fire in SP: collisions and AAA are much more likely to do for me.

I suppose that it is possible that 1 hit could kill, but by the number of bullets I have to put into enemy AIs to get PKs I very much doubt it.

You may not be able to say for sure, but I can.  The MP servers keep mission logs, and it almost always takes 4 hits to kill a pilot.  However, there are some occasions when it only takes 3.

No stats it was on a training server,(NWBT long time ago) ONE ricochet fired by me.

A one time event with no log data to back it up isn't exactly compelling.

Believe what you want but it happened, and can happen at any time.

It apparently happened once.  That isn't really evidence that it can happen at any time.

in a high speed bnz attack i would go for the engine... if you hit the pilot that's a bonus.  from any angle.  this from a 4 day newbie to the game.
