  1. FWIW, I've gotten 3 or 4 IL2s in a C202 in a single sortie quite a few times. I do take the wing mounted 7.7mm machine guns though. Ammunition load provides for a fair amount of trigger time for the 12.7mm guns, and I never shoot unless I'm sure I'm going to hit, and I won't shoot unless my rounds land in a concentrated area. Those 12.7 mm gun rounds have lackluster ballistic performance at over 250m, but I shoot at less than that, and when they hit, they DO hit hard.
  2. The suspense is killing me: I'm assuming the screenshot in the OP was from an actual sortie he had. Was it a successful kill? Also thanks very much for the posting of the technical details and photos of that sight. Fascinating.
  3. FWIW, a fly-along video from the cockpit of the later P-63. The gearbox whine is LOUD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGFoWfoMZfU Another video of the same plane, more fine details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F54jcEFECck&t=2s
  4. Sometimes that works, others not ( for me ) In the midst of the constant loop of "target destroyed" chatter, I'll issue a command like attack nearest ground ( or air ) target, rejoin, RTB and I will get a reply, which does interrupt the chatterer, but then after a few seconds, he's usually back at it again.
  5. Thanks. I'll give that a shot.
  6. I've had similar results. On some sorties I was able to bag all 4 IL-2s, though 1 or 2 took a few minutes to eventually crash. I take the optional 7.7mm guns. Sure, not much "oomph" but they don't adversely affect A/C handling in a way noticeable to me, plus they're good at "chipping away" or applying a coupe de grace to an A/C teetering on the edge.
  7. "Ki61 vs. F6F" I'll second that... 😀
  8. Early on ( earlier on ) in the sim the Bf-109. I like the '190 more now. I've become very used to the Fw-190's handling to the point where recently, when I picked up again on the 'Fortress on the Volga' campaign ( Bf-109 G2 ) the roll rate was so "bad" I thought I've sustained damage or that the ailerons were reduced to the size of a typical smart phone, or maybe I was carrying a 250kg bomb under each wing or was equipped with those stupid MG151 gondolas ( on missions not so outfitted ) I still hold the 109 in high regard though: it's probably the best "does everything pretty good overall" plane in the game, and I'll tell you this: After flying the Spitfire MkV in the 'Achtung Spitfire' campaign, the Bf-109 seemed like a trainer by comparison in regards to it's relative docility in ground handling, take-off and landing.
  9. You can use the multi direction "castle" switch just beneath the hat switch on that stick for trim. Works very well for me.
  10. FWIW, it could be that some or even much of the recoil generated by firing a round is absorbed by the mechanism that auto reloads the next round....assuming the gun is gas operated.
  11. I would like to know this too. Playability is OK but only as long as I use aging drivers.
  12. Thanks for the advice. Very good. I just received a reply stating the book will be sent.
  13. It looks like it was originally designed for the air racing circuit and that someone said "let's add armaments and we'll have a hot interceptor".
  14. I'd still waiting for my copy of Volume 4...sent payment 4 months ago.
  15. Should be good: Provisioning should be easier with much less crowded stores, and the roads to/fro will be all mine.😀
