    Very nice tank models there, the textures are superbly done.

    My last give away

    It’s one of these: Classic Norwegian knitted garment.

    Impressive amount of good stuff this time around. Nice to see the Prokhorovka map in all its glory. One has to appreciate the amount of work that goes into animating the crew members in those extremely tight compartments inside the tanks.

    When Do You Stop Shooting?

    Let me guess: You were flying a German fighter. The enhanced visual effect of the Minengeschoß ammo explosion can give the false impression, that the target has been utterly destroyed, when in fact the damage is superficial.

    No credit for a Taran kill

    A succesful taran doesn’t necessarilly result in the destruction of the attacking aircraft. Take Khlobystov’s infamous action in spring 1942, where he shot down one German fighter and having run out of ammo proceded to ram two more with his right wing, destroying both, after which he returned home and landed with a good portion of his right wing missing.

    No credit for a Taran kill

    Since the VVS awarded a credited victory for taran, and a few pilots actually turned it into a viable tactic and scored multiple kills that way, we probably should, but it comes with some issues, since it would mean, that accidental mid-air collisions (which as we know happens much more frequently than we'd like) would count as friendly fire kills.

    Listening to music while dogfighting?

    Judas Priest is a good gateway drug into heavy metal, since they were pretty instrumental in creating the genre in the first place.

    Listening to music while dogfighting?

    I find Judas Priest to be excellent dogfighting music. Their latest album “Firepower” in particular has been in my ears while flying quite often recently.

    Me 410 and Mosquito

    I’d like to see them. We need something to break the relative monotony of single-engined, single seat fighters. As to how they would fit into the game: Pretty much the same as the Bf 110G-2, as primarilly a fast ground pounder with a respectable payload with some secondary capabilities as a fighter/interceptor.

    What is your creative outlet?

    I draw from time to time, but not as much as I want to. At the moment I paint miniatures. I’ve jumped head first into the golden age of board games, and a lot of those games come with some quite paintable figures. Right now I’m doing the miniatures for the Spartacus board game.

    Ju87 D-3 Weight

    And the oil. For a big engine like the Jumo it can be quite a lot.

    Ju87 D-3 Weight

    The crew members make up the main portion of those 257kg. The rest is the oil in the oil tank. For obvious reasons ‘minimum takeoff weight’ always includes the weight of the crew and a full oiltank - empty does not.

    U-2VS or Not?

    Do it, if for nothing else then for the thrill of trying to fly across the highest part of the Kuban mountains in windy weather carrying a bomb load. Trust me, it is NOT easy.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!

    Glædelig jul og godt nytår 😁

    Was the U2Vs also used during ww2 ?

    Also: The number of combat missions some of the U-2 pilots flew are just staggering - not least with the 588th. The founder of the regiment flew well over 1000 sorties and more than a dozen of her squad mates ranked up more than 500.
