  1. That little bit of added strategy and skill might encourage more people to go for the chute kill, but overall i think it would improve pilot survivability, altitude depending of course!
  2. Chute killing is a hot topic that seems to pop up at least twice a campaign. Its part of the server and i don't think that will change, you can chose to or not, at the end of the day its a game getting the silk shot its immensely frustrating its happened to me a few times. But it is just part of the server and an inevitability that we just have to respect, regardless if you personally chose to or not. We just have to accept it and move on!
  3. I think i have some video of that as well from the german side, there was 4 of us in F-2s a Km or two below you, if only i had the panicked coms of the realization that there was a high altitude flight of pe-2s in tight formation with a number of mig's with a huge energy advantage coming the way of our airfield , it was one of my most memorable dogfights and something that could only happen in TAW. The admins have created something amazing, and good team work and the use of comms really give way to some amazing game play and fun of course!
  4. Oh boy its reading week at uni come Monday its perfect timing! I think i will be going blue this Campaign i am always looking for people to fly with, i am on mostly nights AST.
  5. I'll be flying red this time, mostly afternoons and nights ADT and am always looking for people to fly with!
  6. Try to start the engines separately that i find limits the number of times the engine will sputter out, with that they tend to fail once but on the second startup they will stay on. Sometimes they will take two or three times to start you just have to be patient.
  7. The Techno chat defiantly has its advantages to just using the gauges, but also keeps the server a little bit more accessible for the more casual and less skilled players (ie:me)
  8. Ill be flying red this time and will be on in the evening est.
  9. i''ll grab that last g-2 if it's still available. Thanks. That might have been me my engine died and i was forced to put it down at agoy then proceed to destroy some parked migs with my flare gun.
  10. This was such a great introduction into Friday night bomber flights, with an interesting run in with a train. A dogfight with the yaks where i had to quickly learn that the g-4 is not the strongest at defensive flying, cant wait for next one!
  11. If theres any open G-4 spots left i would love to give this mission a try.
  12. Historically the pe-2 was quite effective at defending itself and had an average survivable rate of 30 combat flights according to Russian estimates. "The records of the 16th and 39th BAPs of the Western Front Air Force note that the Pe-2s crews had the greatest success in repelling the attacks of enemy fighters in June and July 1941. On 1 July, for example, six Pe-2s fended off attacks by four Messerschmitt Bf 109s, shooting down two of them. A week later a group of Pe-2s was attacked by four Bf 109 and again brought down two of the attackers. On both occasions the Petlyakovs suffered no losses." i am by no means a great pilot in taw but in my limited experience flying both sides the pe-2 loses its edge as the blues get access to better and more guns. While the e-7 really will struggle good team play, and well planed out attack paths can help alleviate the effectiveness of the pe-2.
  13. I think the current set of what both the reds and blues have available is fair. The most important factor is not who has access to what, but who has the best teamwork and balance between attackers and fighters.
