  1. The twin engines we are getting, 410, 88c, 234, and mosquito The typhoon will be fun to try out as well. No idea why but that’s my favorite English plane.
  2. I’m not saying it’s modeled correctly but projectiles hardly stay on a uniform path once they hit a solid. With all projectiles in this game hitting from dead 6 is probably the worst thing you can do, even a slight angle off seems to help significantly with hit detection
  3. This is purely speculation but generally speaking 190s went after bombers (not that 109s did not) and did ground attack more often so I think it was in higher risk roles than the 109 and possibly more survivable than that would suggest. Not to discredit the 109
  4. I cant connect to wings of liberty any more but I’d buy the yak9 if I could. I got the 9t and hurricane preordered, I’ll grab the 9 at some point too
  5. I only would let irl friends in my gunner seat because after bf110/pe2 tail gets sawn off by a couple randos locking the position is the move.
  6. I prefer twin engine aircraft that are able to dive well with a 20mm or 4 so I will hop in it i play this for fun, not muh stats
  7. The mc202 is my favorite premium. It’s quirky and fun to learn. Before the damage model changes I had no problems with the x2 12.7s paired with the 7.7s. Good bursts to the cockpit or engine nacelles caused pk’s and fires easily enough.
  8. Wi here Ive been on quite the hiatus but hopefully I’ll be back in il2 in a week or so!
  9. Yeah I have a handful of friends who would play but the game + stick, throttle, (I don’t even have peddles) and track ir is too much of an investment.
  10. And I hope they never do that here. memkiii is correct about the the 109s rpm controls but I just wanted to add that while probably possible, i don’t think many would be able to manually outperform the automatic setting
  11. Lag-3/p40 vs mc202 spit v vs bf109f2 spit ix vs fw190a bf109g6 vs p47 Tempest/stang vs d9 For myself I like taking a 110g vs p38s
  12. Just finish the mission when your plane is shut off and at a complete stop or you crash land (hopefully in friendly territory). Usually when you get your plane back to base in one piece it goes back into the airfields inventory and you receive a better score than ditching it. I think rearming had some issues and isn’t widely used online yet.
  13. The 129s lack of speed is the major issue for me and this weakness manifests itself in a few ways. I often lawndart the 129 when I could pull out of a dive in a 110 or il2 by punching more gas where the 129 keeps sinking. It is also harder to avoid aa and enemy fighters with the slower speed. Running away is simply not an option if things go wrong. The 110 also feels more durable, not that the 129 falls to pieces instantly but it can’t get out of its way so when you get hit you get hit a lot and it also seems to start on fire easily. The rear gunner on the 110 and the better visibility make maintaining situational awareness much easier. The 129 is probably a better turner than the 110, but the 110 has more forgiving handling imo. Have any hatches open? The ap belt has killed sdkfz 251s for me so maybe if you were in a very light vehicle it could be possible
  14. Good to see this, I haven’t had much time to do much more than a quick sortie here and there between moving, work, and musical commitments. hopefully these numbers indicate sales so the devs can keep up the amazing progress. I haven’t been around too much and don’t want to derail but has there been any word on Air Marshal lately?
  15. Could it be possible that something like your throttle axis (for example) is also mapped to your elevator controls?
  16. The p40 will probably be better as a fighter bomber, at least in my hands but the hurricane will probably be more fun to fight in with 12 wing mg’s or the 4 hispanos and its wonderful turn rate. The hurricane will be fun to take against tanks if the 40mms are available.
  17. All good to hear, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard about Air Marshal
  18. Even with just haze people cry. People draw the line for realism differently I guess. I don’t know why you would want things to be realistic like no gps, go through the effort to make it so players have to taxi by placing objects around to make it difficult to just gun the throttle to take off but feel immersed flying everyday flying the same weather and time of day. The rain and weather effects are one of the sims strong points and it is a bummer it gets swept aside
  19. I agree but the difference to me is far less than say our e7 to f4 or g6 or k4 if you stay light on fuel, the a8 can be thrown around pretty good with boost on
  20. I’m unsure, but I have never heard that. Reading about the 801 is tricky because there’s a lot of inaccurate info out there, people mix up the c3 injection (Mostly if not exclusively used by jabos, increased power and due consumption below 1.5ish km) and boost, some claim that 190a’s had mw50 injection, etc. Im guessing the a6 will be similar to our a5, if there’s a jabo mod it will have c3 injection, if not it will be 1.42 ata and may be faster at altitude and slower than the a8 on the deck, but this is just speculation. All 190a’s feel and fight similar to me, the difference isn’t as dramatic as it is in 109s to me. I just hope we get some of the fun toys like the mk103 pods or the rare external air intakes that increased power at high alt that were used around the Normandy time frame and not just an a5 with a8 wings and br21s.
  21. It will be interesting to see. Early versions would have a5ish engine settings, later fighter versions could have erhohte notleistung (boost). Of course at this point jabos would be cleared for c3 injection. I am not sure if the outboard mg151s Are optional but if that’s the case and we receive erhohte notleistung (which I believe by Normandy was cleared) it could be the fastest Anton we will see if we don’t get an a9. Hopefully what we get is a little more than an a5 with a8 wings.
  22. It could have been lag, but in about the middle of December I was doing a jabo 190 attack on combat box and was severely injured causing my pilot to pass out. Somehow I woke up in somewhat level flight despite missing most of my control surfaces and slowly due to the injury turned the plane towards friendly lines, but just died randomly in mid air while making my way back. Stats indicated I was not jumped on my way back. I’m not sure but it seemed like I bleed out mid flight. I think this was the sortie, guess it was lag or something http://combatbox.net/en/sortie/log/255453/?tour=16
  23. I like the extra ammo too. I don’t like dropping the mg’s completely because it removes the rear armor as well which really seems to help (unlike say the 110e engine armor). I’ve noticed on all American planes that taking less fuel really does help, especially here and the p47.
