  1. Hi, maybe that coul be interesting for you: source: https://stormbirds.blog/2019/03/21/part-3-an-interview-with-jason-williams-on-tank-crew-and-flying-circus/
  2. Stunning news as always! The possibilities for the tanks (and later for the planes) sounds extremely exciting! With the Albatros and S.E.5. you did a great job and just like the Me 262 I can't wait to fly them. The American summer uniform looks good. I'm curious what the Royal Airforce pilots will look like. I hope that sometime in the future the Russian and German uniforms will be brought to the new standard. Thanks for your hard work Il-2 Team best regards Rico!
  3. Die Aufnahme is dir wirklich gelungen mit dem gemischten Verband! Hut ab
  4. If you look at this configuration for the A3, it's the same for the FW 190 throughout (apart from the new Mg 131, of course). If you think away the outboard guns, it's the only way to fire the engine near guns together. When it comes to design, you'll have to ask Kurt Tank and his development team.
  5. Jason showed the schedule a while ago and there were also two anti-aircraft vehicles as Collector vehicles. So it's not right to say there's nothing for tank crew.
  6. That's what I call a surprise! Great trailer! And very nice news I must say. I think it's great that the Rearm/Refuel/Repair will be possible for both (tanks and planes)! Thank you for your efforts and time you put into this great simulator. Can't wait to see the new features in action. best regards Rico
  7. Good evening, for every plane in Il-2 there are the specifications. You can click on these, for example, if you go to the map during a flight ("O" default). There you will also find the power levels for the engine. If I remember correctly, 85% Auto Rich - that means your mixture is automatically rich. If you want to fly more economical then you should take Auto lean (I think that's 60% or 65% - you can also find it under specifications). I hope that could help you a little. Otherwise I have a video of Requiem here about the P-47. Hopefully this should help you. best regards Rico
  8. Hello and welcome! That sounds good. I hope you keep having fun with Il-2. I switched from WT to IL-2 at the end of last year after a long time and don't regret anything. If you are looking for someone to fly or if you have any questions you can send me a PN. In this sense have fun! best regards Rico
  9. Thank you very much for sharing! I can´t wait to get my hands on this bird. I think it was in 2012 or 2013 when I saw the Redbull P-38. Since then I have been fascinated by this special beauty.
  10. Good Evening VikS, After a short search I have found 2 pages so far that mention this. One of these here is in German: https://me262.de/versionen/messerschmitt-me-262-a-2a-sturmvogel/ And the The Aviation History Online Museum mentions it as well: http://www.aviation-history.com/messerschmitt/me262.html There is also a list with their sources on the end of that article. Hopefully it helps you best regards, Rico
  11. This is the sweet little Amiot 370. I love the design.
  12. In the book: "Focke Wulf 190 at war" by Alfred Price, there is also some information about the weapon system. Here it was about a Fw 190 A3, which had 3 possibilities: 1. MG 17 + MG151/20 (wing root) 2. Oerlikon FF 20 mm (wing outside) 3. All weapons This weapon control can probably be applied to all 190 as a standard system. At least I have no information to the contrary for the D9.
  13. And you forgot one Fokker D VII ^^ But wonderful idea man!
  14. Good morning, wouldn't it maybe be better to create a thread and post all the clips in there? You opened 10 threads last week. Just in case you haven't noticed.
  15. There was no offical announecment yet (as far as i know), but i have a good feeling. I mean the Pz. III´s interieur should be the same and the T-34 has the exact same chassis. Only the turret is different. So i think they will update them in the Future.
  16. Hi Pedro, to answer your 1. question. No they will be 2 new and independent tanks (like the Pz. III L and the Pz. III M). And your 2. Question. I think that´s a matter of time, i mean the fokker dr. III got a few more skins with one of the last patches. I bet they will be more! have a nice day, Rico
  17. Can´t wait to get this stuff into my hands!
  18. I feel you man. I would love to see the pacifc expansion here. My favourite of all time is the A6m Zero. I slightly prefer the early versions more than the later ones. And the G4M2 Betty is a sweet bomber. Hopefully the dev´s go to this Area, but i have the feeling, that they won´t go with the next expansion to this spot.
  19. Ja das stimmt wohl, ich hätte auch gerne den nicht existenten 2. Part gesehen.
  20. Das Interview mit Erich Brunotte is klasse! Es gibt nochmal ein etwas längereres mit ihm, welches ich auch sehr schön fand. Aber Simpit ich weiß ja nicht. So grob falsch sind die Flugmodelle glaube ich nicht. Und das ein Simulator an seine Grenzen stößt ist glaube ich auch verständlich bzw. logisch. Auch die "unrealistisch" überlegenen russischen Jagdflugzeuge möchte ich mal sehen^^ Offenkundig scheinst du davon nich viele zu fliegen? Praktisch jede deutsche Maschine ist schneller und kann mit solider Bewaffnung arbeiten, die noch dazu mehr Munition haben. Im Multiplayer gegen andere habe ich da meistens kein schönes Leben mit. Da nutzt mir auch die bessere Wendigkeit nichts wenn meine Gegner mir wegsteigen und ich nicht hinterherkomme. Was die gute alte Jug angeht, hält man sich an die offiziellen Handbücher dazu (wie bei jedem anderen Vogel auch). Zugegeben sind die Sturzeigenschaften ein wenig eigenartig, da sie da eigentlich besser sein sollte als andere Flieger. Aber naja is noch EA, also werden wir sehen was noch daran gemacht wird. Ich meine es gab ja auch schließlich nochmal ein Rework für die A8 & A5. Sonst vergiss bitte nicht, dass hier im Spiel die Maschinen (meistens) nicht in großen Höhen (8.000m +) geflogen werden, wo die Thunderbolt mit unter am meisten geglänzt hat, was Performance angeht. Selbiges gilt auch für die P-51, bei der sich noch herausstellen wird wie sie sich im Spiel verhält. Aber auch da würde ich mein Geld eher auf die Tempest setzen in niedrigen Höhen, als auf die Stang. Am Ende ist es sowohl hier wie auch damals die alte Geschichte. Es kommt auf den Piloten an der seine Kiste beherrscht und weiß was die seines Gegners kann und es zu seinem Vorteil nutzt. Vielleicht auch noch eine Portion Glück dazu.
  21. I don't think any simulator is perfect. No matter which one, there will always be a certain discrepancy. I like the way Il-2 has chosen to stick to the official manuals. Besides, it's sometimes not as bad as indicated. After all, the engine "recovers" after a while with lower throttle for example from the emergency power. Best planes to demonstrate that are the Bf 109 G14/K-4. Also, the engine does not explode immediately after this time. Even if it tends to do it quite shortly afterwards. Of course there are also airplanes, like the P-40, which suffer from the fact that they destroy themselves with overspeeding the engine, although they were flown later with higher manifold pressure. But there we are again with the not perfect. At the moment I don't think there will be a big rework for the engines. First of all there will be the Marshal feature, just as there will be the rework for the fuel system during the year. And if I may remind you, this game will be continuously developed and improved. So a tweak with the engines is not impossible. And before the complaining starts about how bad the condition is. If it were that bad, you'd probably notice it in the player numbers, wouldn't you? After all the reviews of the last 30 days on Steam are 85% positive. So the Dev´s seem to be doing something right. At the end we have to wait and see where the journey takes us.
  22. Well, in the specially described situation, it was about a flight on the D9 (unless he remembered it wrong). Of course, that's just his story. Unfortunately, I haven't found any further confirmation yet. But yes the statement allows the conclusion that the brakes have to hold the full power. But since it was described only in this interview, about the D9, I hold myself back with further assumptions, until I found other sources to it.
  23. It is like in the other modules. You can join in one of the positions, like in a bomber. So yes it is possible.
