Pilot Sudden Death Syndrome

I was flying a mission in the Bf 109 above 35,000 feet when my pilot suddenly and instantly died. One second I'm flying along happy the next second I'm staring at my wingman's plane from the F2 postion. Is this supposed to happen?

I guess he died because of low air pressure. He couldn't breath.

35k feet is very high for such a machine.

If it was hypoxia then why did it happen so suddenly and not start showing symptoms at a lower level?

I thought they modeled malfunctions with the pilots now! Strokes, heart attacks. wait they need to model severe airsickness! Picture it! You're flying along and turning, and before you know it, you toss your cookies all over the cockpit!

No. It was in the Bf 109 Challenge Campaign. No enemy anti air assets.

I'm pretty sure the Oxygen wasn't on because I tried it again with it on and made it to 40k without dying.

While I haven't tried it in the 109, rapid onset death from hypoxia common when I forget the oxygen. You can kill yourself on the ground in the Mig-15! Lol
