  1. "Biorobots" cleaning the roof (watch the series to learn how it came to that):
  2. Of course there are. Even in the series, most of the main characters were trying to fix the problems despite the denial and cover-up by the state officials. I believe those lines of Legasov were directed against the official policy of the state in general and more specifically about the information he withheld from the International Atomic Energy Agency during the meeting in Vienna in August 1986 (about the graphite-tipped control rods in the emergency shutdown system, that instead of slowing down the reaction, increased it until it exploded). Yes, the same universal instinct of the bureaucrat -- silence, denial, finding someone else to blame. Better thousands to suffer or even die instead of admitting fault and taking responsibility. Same pattern with the Boeing 737 MAX accidents.
  3. "What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we will mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that, if we hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all. What can we do then? What else is left but to abandon even the hope of truth and content ourselves instead with stories? In these stories, it doesn’t matter who the heroes are. All we want to know is who is to blame." -- the opening quote from the TV Series
  4. Nice graphic. Here (in Bulgaria) the media kept silent. The party held the traditional parade on May 1., 1986. It was raining on that day.
  5. “Oh, my sweet summer child, what do you know of timers..."
  6. Damn it, missed my chance to try the extremely rare La-5 variant with an FN engine...
  7. I meant those switches on the 110 (and similar on the FW-190): There are also circuit breaker switches on the SZKK / SKK: About the Hs 129, the MK-103 manual states that it's breaker is on the SZKK but I couldn't find info about the other weapons. There are 2 switches on the Hs-129's SZKK-4 though, like on the FW-190. On the SZKK-4, the upper switch should have the standard On/Off pictogram while the second one has a space for a label. See for example https://www.deutscheluftwaffe.de/fl-47319-schalt-zaehl-kontrollkasten-szkk-4-1944 The lower switch might be used to separate two weapons grouped together, but whether that happened on the Hs-129, I don't know.
  8. Except that the particular planes had separate circuit breakers for every weapon which would allow to disable them by flipping the switch. Those are not implemented in the game.
  9. That E-8 would be the best dogfighter in the game... Lighter than E-7 without the cannons and as powerful as the F-4...
  10. Hs-123 for example, it flew until the end of the war and was the main CAS fighter of LW in 1941.
  11. The FM topics of the forum are the few that I check regularly and I enjoyed reading Kwiatek's opinions. Now he won't post any more. RIP Kwiatek!
  12. The oil rad. on IL-2 has armoured shutter, you should close it before attack and leave it open during the rest of the flight. The water rad. is hidden behind the engine and is protected by design.
  13. To enjoy this game, a head tracking solution is a must. Using pedals instead of a twist stick also improves flying precision and aiming a lot.
  14. How is coordination supposed to happen? Squads like JG4 have their own private TS channels and on the open TAW TS English channel there are usually only 3-4 people talking unrelated stories about their day life... I guess the only way to fly coordinated for Germany (especially as a solo ground attacker) is to learn Russian and join the Russian TS which usually has the most members and the most serious attitude about winning the mission...
  15. If you like BnZ or flying fast at tree top level, try the 190... 😎
