  1. It’s also worth noting that there were a lot of cases of ‘atrocity tourism’ in the Wehrmacht, where troops would photograph the victims of atrocities and even their own comrades who had been executed for desertion. There are quite a few cases of Wehrmacht and even Waffen-SS personnel refusing to take part in atrocities, and only one was punished. This punishment wasn’t a result of their refusal, but because they denounced the atrocities in front of their men. Such cases can be found here: https://www.jstor.org/stable/1429971?seq=1 I should also mention Albert Battel, wh
  2. Hi guys, would anyone be willing to make four generic Fw-190 A-8 skins? The skins just have to be the default skin with the yellow identification numbers 5, 6, 7, and 8, as well as the Jagdgeschwader 2 defence of the Reich band, as seen here: I'm intending to use these for PWCG and the career mode, and I hope that others find them useful as well
  3. Interesting, the two aircraft closest to the camera have yellow spinners, while the other two have black spinners. I wonder why that is?
  4. @PatrickAWlson I've run into a problem with the FC version of PWCG. I've set the base altitude to 3000m, but every enemy and friendly AI flight in the missions is flying very low, below 500m. This even applies to balloons.
  5. Interesting, never heard of this guy before. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Planck
  6. - To have a Cadorna moment - to be extremely egotistical, and then to get bounced by an enemy that everyone warned you about. - To have a Barracca moment - to type ‘S!’ whenever you shoot someone down. - To have a Göring moment - to do well in FC, only to fail completely on a WWII map due to substance abuse, then ragequit. - To have an Udet moment - to do really well in FC, only to then go and use the He-111 as a dive bomber, then ragequit because everyone else on your team underestimates Soviet aircraft. - To have a Park moment - to do pretty well in FC, then backseat pilo
  7. Not funny. Some things should never be joked about.
  8. I’d recommend getting the A-20 and P-47 campaigns sometime. @Gambit21 has a great talent for taking an aircraft I’m not very interested in and making me a fan of it.
  9. I should charge people for that, could make a fair amount of profit.
  10. You’d almost certainly have more difficulty performing routine maintenance on a Tiger or Panther’s road wheels, so I imagine it could be repaired in the field.
  11. Great work! The I-16 might not be fast or ergonomic, but it’s not harmless and shouldn’t be treated as impotent cannon fodder. Also, thanks for the Russian lesson. I always assumed that ‘zveno’ meant something along the lines of ‘parasite’ due to the I-16s of the Zveno parasite fighter project. Didn’t realise until now that it means ‘flight’ (as in ‘a flight of I-16s’).
  12. If you want, sure! Unlike other famous Luftwaffe aces such as Adolf Galland and Hans-Joachim Marseille, Nowotny’s military career started after the beginning of WWII, in October 1939. As part of his training, he was posted to Jagdfliegerschule 5, which Marseille had attended previously. While there, he befriended Paul Galland, the younger brother of Adolf Galland. One of his instructors there was Julius Arigi, Austria-Hungary’s second most successful WWI fighter ace. It was not until July 1941 that Nowotny scored his first two victories in the same fight, shooting down
