  1. Are they H-2s or P-2s? The P-2s unfortunately slipped under our radar.
  2. Russia wasn’t the only member of the USSR. Don’t forget that Ukrainians, Belarusians, Georgians, Kazakhs, Turkmen, Armenians, Azerbaijanis, Estonians, Kirghizes, Latvians, Lithuanians, Moldavians, Tajiks, Uzbeks, and Karelo-Finns also made up the Soviet armed forces.
  3. Because some of the women who play this game would find it more immersive if they could play as a member of their own gender. This was explained in the first paragraph of the first post of this thread. Or flying a Yak or Pe-2 in combat (and that’s only considering all-female regiments and the service of Litvyak and Budanova). Also, women drove T-34s and manned AA guns.
  4. Well, the Handley-Page O/400 is the largest WWI bomber in the game so far, and even when it had to compete with the Ilya Muromets in Rise of Flight it carried the largest single bomb. I imagine that the FC2 version will be able to be equipped with a 57mm cannon like the RoF version as well. The Breguet is pretty interesting too, it has a primitive flap system, being the only plane in FC and RoF to have a design feature that’s standard on WWII aircraft. The Nieuport 28 is a nice looking fighter that I’m not very familiar with, but I recall it being the mount of quite a f
  5. Interesting. It’s a shame that it and a bunch of other modern fighters didn’t get to Poland before the Nazis invaded. No. 303 SQN made the Hurri synonymous with Polish aviation in the end, though. The PZL P.11 is honestly an underrated aircraft IMO. Admittedly I always thought of it as Messerschmitt target practice when I was younger, but apparently they managed to turn back one of the first raids against Warsaw, destroy 7 Do-17s in one engagement with no losses, and ultimately shoot down around 110 German aircraft for the loss of 100 P.11s. I’d say that’s pretty damn goo
  6. So, in short: Pacific Carrier Battles Australians ❌ A playable framerate ❌ New Guinea Australians ✅ A playable framerate ✅ I like where this is going.
  7. There is no doubt that SS-Hauptmsturmfuhrer Michael Wittmann is the most famous tank commander of all time. Even to this day, flowers are laid at his grave. Tank historian Stephen Zaloga has described him as "the hero of all Nazi fanboys", and his actions at the Battle of Villers-Bocage continue to be lauded and criticised in equal measure by enthusiasts and historians. After serving as one of Adolf Hitler's bodyguards, taking part in the invasions of Czechoslovakia and the USSR, fighting with distinction at the Battle of Prokhorovka, and cementing his legacy at Villers-Bocage, the Nazi war he
  8. I was wondering if anyone would be able to answer this question for me; did Luftwaffe fighter and zerstörer HQ flights (stabsschwarme) ever fly by themselves, or were they always leading their gruppe or geschwader? I'm currently unsure, and haven't found much evidence either way. On one hand, a gruppe or geschwader's HQ flight would presumably exist for the sole purpose of leading its gruppe or geschwader, so it seems logical that it would only fly with the unit it existed to command. This seems to have been the case for the RAF, as Johnnie Johnson reportedly said (while explaining
  9. You can browse HSD on a vehicle-by-vehicle basis, so you only see skins for the vehicle you want.
  10. Nice! Should probably put that image in spoiler tags due to the swastikas, though.
  11. I haven’t found anything to suggest that IXs and XIVs were mixed. I would guess that Merlins and Griffons were kept in seperate squadrons to make logistics, maintenance, and formation flying easier.
  12. @PatrickAWlson found the generic 487th FS (352nd FG) P-51 skin, the author is @Legioneod. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9f5tf5jc9q0ldae/P51D15NA_BlueNose.zip?dl=0 Also, I was doing some research into Spitfire squadrons, and found that No. 66, No. 326 Free French, and No. 403 RCAF SQNs never actually flew any Griffon-engined Spitfires, only Merlin-engined ones. It seems that they flew the Mk.IX and/or Mk.XVI in the BoBp timeframe. No. 193 SQN, on the other hand, only ever flew the Typhoon in the BoBp timeframe. The Spitfire Mk. IX might arguably be a better stand
  13. Did the British really need to inflict it on us? 🤮
  14. His novel writing is also laugh-out-loud, but also surprisingly creepy when it needs to be.
  15. Random failures sound great until your Ferdinand blows up because it went up a small anthill.
  16. Nice work! Spoilers aren’t working though, looks like you tried to use BBCode. I don’t think this forum runs on that.
  17. I have a generic skin with the blue nose and tail of the 487th, I'll let you know when I find were I got it from.
  18. Now it's our PWCG campaign with the 352nd
  19. Great work, never seen markings like that on a German fighter before. Never heard of a ‘jaboschwarm’ before either. I know that some gruppen and geschwaderen had jabo staffels, though.
  20. @PatrickAWlson just so you know, it's historically inaccurate that I./JG 27 is flying the Fw-190. Everything I've found indicates that they flew the Bf-109 for the entire war. Here is the Bf-109 G-6 of Major Ludwig Franzisket, commander of I./JG 27, in early 1944: Then there is this Bf-109 K-4, which was apparently found in the Czech city of Hradec Králové in 1945. It was apparently from 3./JG 27 (Marseille's staffel). The green fuselage band shows that it belonged to JG 27. According to both Wikipedia and this Luftwaffe website (which cit
  21. We’ve gotten to the point where it’s surprising to see that a WWII veteran is still alive. I’m glad I was born just in time to meet some.
  22. I’ve never been so offended by something I completely agree with. As much as I love the Spitfire, there was simply no way for Germany to win the Battle of Britain when the Royal Navy outnumbered the Kriegsmarine by such a wide margin. Hmm, maybe I should do an alt-history mission for CloD with air battles centred around some RN capital ships bullying German landing craft/supply ships in the Channel... Anyway, for me, the plane I love to hate is the Vickers Wellesley. It looks like the child of the Wellington and the Swordfish if the m
  23. Saigon is a city in Vietnam, now officially known as Ho Chi Minh City. From what I can find, Vietnam has had many names, but Saigon isn’t one.
