  1. I dont see how P38 can be problematic. Germans for long time had supremancy as for bomb load on their fighters (not to mention the bombers) . 110 is taking more bombload than PE 2, the 190s bomb load is also quite heavy. But for some the parity seems like opression...
  2. @Katon I thought that there is anti disco mechanizm in place which when You disco within 5 minutes of the damage You loose Your virtual life (if its only for player induced damage, it should be extended to all damage: The below disco queen is not loosing the life, although is exiting just after receiving damage (one of the below discos I've seen with my own eyes and was about to attack, the disco princess shortly after joined the server again...) : https://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=44999&name=1./JG42flesch https://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=43745&name=1./JG42flesch
  3. Its as i was afraid. A "saving wanaby hartman ego" setting. And how is it fair for I16 pilot who has really hard time catching 110 or next map ju 88 and not many options as for approach due to speed difference? All planes schould have same settings, be it lowest but same
  4. For me no problem i always shoot myself anyway. I also understand the concept od saving the precious wanaby hartmanns egos. I Hope though that in all fairness this is valid for all planes on both sides and not only Pe2.
  5. Its the game mechanic. The gunners will not fire when you enter the clouds or when its dark. You have to man the guns yourself unfortunately. (I think IT was changed by devs after many complains that the gunners fire trough clouds etc.)
  6. Check costal command black friday od 1945 and what happens when the target is under attack by small groups at a time and from one direction instead od the whole squadron attacking and swaping the defences from different directions. In taw the attacks are not like in real life by squadrons but done by smallgroups or single planes against aaa which for the targets IT protects is quite numerous.
  7. Funny to see people who state that they dont fly current taw but still come and drop their 5cents ...
  8. I see a problem. I cant catch 109s neither in horizontal flight nor in dive with i16...
  9. 10 vs 21 is more like 1 vs 2.1...;)
  10. You can register 2nd nick for the other side to ballance.
  11. Its there - I lost one engine to the flak over german coulmn just few minutes ago and I've seen it fireing
  12. 1) and I ask again - what was the cloud base and horizontal visibility? Was it the TAW 2k/8k or something wholly different? As it happened in winter, the dew point was very low so Your overcast was skimming just above the ground plus most probably severe icing conditions - quite on the opposite end than our TAW conditions. 2) for the visibility in TAW you dont have to "feel" just check with the map what you can see - from what i've seen the worst was 8k horizontal visibility. 3) Real aviation doesnt work with statements "good weather"/"bad weather"/ " its raining we dont fly " but it works with numbers: horizontal visibility and a number, cloud cover - and a number, cloud base and a number, wind direction/speed and a number... So find the real conditions with numbers when the real pilots were not flying so You know what about are you speaking 4) so you say that they were not flying when it was raining or snowing - it might be true when they would use gliders and had to find thermals to gain the hight... 5) If you want something to read - read "Winged victory" diary wrote by Yates and find in what weather people were waiging war in machines that didnt even had artifical horizon or even turn indicator...
  13. As per Katon statement the aaa accuracy is reduced.
  14. I'm sorry but the thing You fail to see ( i think I wrote about it before ,but might be mistaken...), is that the "bad weather" we have in TAW is not the bad weather You are speaking of. Its only "less good weather" with decent visibility of minimum around 8km, ridicululsy high cloud base of 1600 m (minimum which I remeber) but ususally 2k +. And light rain or snow. In aviation the conditions and I'm only speaking about VFR flights (and no gps, NDB etc nav but the old school map, compas,clock, mark I eyballs) which can hamper the sorties are visibility (both horizontal and vertical) , wind strenght and its direction, the wind mostly for take off and landing, (also icing conditions and real thunderstorms with all the conditions they bring like hail, wind shear etc play a role but they are not modeled in TAW). and both visibiliti and cloud celling are really good in Your "TAW bad weather"! (as a side note , the minimum conditions for student pilot first solo cross country flight at my place is 500m cloud base and 5000m horizontal view…). If TAW admins want they can put the real bad weather with 150 - cloud base 2km visibility to have it more real, but I think for our purpose the less good weather conditions (your bad weather) is enough for the diversity . edit. I checked and Yes I wrote about it before
  15. The bad weather as you call It that we have in taw is not a real bad weather. Its just overvast with light rain , slight fogging (where still you have something like 7-9 km visibility )And unrealistic high cloud base of 1.8 to almost 3 km (You can call It bad weather for armchair pilots). In europe even in summer when the weather is good the base of the good weather clouds (cumulus clouds) is rearly as high as 1.8km . If You want a real bad weather (about which You are quoting Patton)the clouds base should be much much lower (much below 1000m And sometimes even just above the ground)And visibility in rain also shorter. Additionally the icing is not moddeled in il2 which was also hampering the real life missions quite often during bad weather in winter, early spring etc
