    Skin Begging

    I have no doubt that all the bases for American and German aircraft markings will be covered in no time, my main dismay is the real lack of skins for some of the VVS aircraft, particularly those in the pre-1942 period. It doesn't help that the skin selection for the original BoS Soviet aircraft is in my opinion lackluster at best. Coupled with the lack of a dedicated tactical markings system (which I know Jason has said is in the works, but not a priority) it makes the variety of VVS skins very minute. Another factor that definitely does not help is the language barrier and difficulty to access reliable information regarding the Soviet formations and photographs to identify and skin aircraft correctly, seeing as photos of 1941-era aircraft seem few and far in-between, much less ones with units and pilots identified.
  2. Brief description: Rail bridge southwest of Rzhev on Moscow map seems displaced Detailed description, conditions: Played on both Career and Scripted Campaign modes, the railway bridge southwest of Rzhev (Grid 1105.7) seems to be dislocated upwards from its path. I don't know if this is a realistic design, maybe it moves vertically up and down, but looking at it gives the impression that it's not placed correctly. Additional assets (videos, screenshots, logs): Your PC config data (OS, drivers, specific software): N/A

    U2 land in a road, then take off

    Considering the A-20 can do it, I don't see how the U-2 could not.

    Can a plane fly and manouver without the tail fin?

    I've once had my vertical stabilizer knocked off clean in an A-20 by one direct hit of a 37mm German Flak. I had a friend directly behind me who was also in a Havoc that told me immediately of the situation. Quickly I used differential thrust to maintain directional control and not yaw into a spin. I was able to fly all the way back to base and land successfully using only differential thrust to yaw left and right. I wish I had video evidence to prove it but I do have a friend who witnessed it all and video of me getting my vertical stabilizer blown off. https://streamable.com/m3y6g

    Best aircraft for attacking ships

    A-20 Havoc: high payload (I usually take the 4x250 and 8x100 payload, which in ideal conditions means you can obliterate a good 6-8 ships with); high speed; high maneuverability; good survivability and good single engine performance make it the ideal choice for anti-shipping in IL-2. In real life the B-25 and Beaufighter could probably outclass the A-20, but in this sim the Havoc reigns supreme for the time being. The replies suggesting the He-111 are the best gave me a hearty chuckle. The Ju-88 is probably the best the germans get in terms of anti shipping, but the 110 falls short of both the A-20 and Ju-88, and thats a cold hard F A C T.

    What is your favourite plane

    A-20, no doubt about it

    [MOD] Multicoloured Tracers

    Hello, I believe that after some recent updates the 7.62 ShKAS green tracers don't work anymore. Any chance for an update to the mod?

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Your tester colleague seems to disagree.

    Be careful what you wish for 😬

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Giving the fact that: 1. A thorough Korean simulation in the depths of the Great Battles series has not been done for quite a while and it the Korean Peninsula situation is somewhat relevant in the current year; 2. A 1950-53 scenario would present some of the peak classics of early jet aviation, pitting two of the largest GB markets (Russia - USA) against each other; 3. The only competitor for the jet lineup being DCS has sold fairly well in its Korean-era modules, despite having ABSOLUTELY NO CONTENT to work with aside from a few token campaigns; I think you are sorely mistaken

    Finally someone who's listening. Although the 2nd part of your statement is a bit disheartening it is something I can live with for the sake of the prosperity of the sim. I do still hold firm that the most likely scenario after BoBP is Korea, specially given the little hint that was dropped in the last Dev Diary regarding the Me-262s jet engine tech.
