is it the more of an shooting arc overlaps with the enemy plane, the more hits u get on them? ie. if i have an arc that overlaps alot with a barshiki, do i get more hits vs if i just overlapped my arc on him a tiny bit?

No, one wingtip in the arc is just as good as the whole plane bathed in green.

Having the plane in more than one of your arcs is better than having it in just one, as each arc shoots its own ammo, and each arc can hit that plane.

thanks for the ans. how about in relation to sillouttes? does the arc coverage affect that? or does silloutte only affect the size of the plane displayed on the screen?

Silhouette is loosely tied to the sprite size. It measures how hard the plane is to hit once it is in your arc.

A plane with a low silhouette is a very small target, and some guns won't hit it very often. On the other hand, some guns are very accurate, and will hit small targets more often. Flak guns, specifically, get a lot of critical hits, which ignore silhouette altogether -- a critical hit *always* hits, whether or not the shot would have hit the target in question.
