  1. I've been trying to find information on pilot rotation for the Russian pilots during the second world war. From what I know the Germans typically flew until the end of the war or they were killed, and this allowed them to rack up a number of kills that was unheard of from the allied airforces. Also, I remember reading that American fighter pilots had a mission cap before they were rotated back home for other duties like training new pilots. I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on how the Russians pilots were rotated in and out of front line duty.
  2. I found this tutorial to be very helpful. Requiem mentioned that holding back on the stick upon touch down helps dig the tail into the ground as GrinderX9 mentioned in a previous post. When I get some time I'll have to practice landing the Fokker DR.1.
  3. Thank you so much for the reply. I found it really helpful. Now, to put this into practice ^_^
  4. Hello, I'm new here to the forums. I started to get back into flight sims and maybe someone could help me with some tips on landing the dr.1. Whenever I'm landing the Fokker and I am on my final at about 80-90 km/hr I touch down and always end up skidding to the left. How do I prevent the airplane from skidding to one side or the other when landing? I'm trying to use the rudder to help control the aircraft and keep it centered down the runway, but it seems whenever I make rudder inputs it makes the problem worst.
