  1. Also being able to fly an (almost) complete fighter career in the Hawker family from the Hurricane II in Sept 1940 through the Tiffy to the Tempest. And similar Spitfire career from V to IX to XIV. Can we pleeeeeease get an earlier engine and 2x20mm 4x.303 armament mods for the IX?? I've been such a good boy this year...
  2. For Barbarossa? What about... Do-17 HS-123 (I almost never fly German, but would LOVE to have a razz around in this lil beauty) 109-e4? (this may be too similar to the E7 we currently have, but, since drop tanks are coming....) FW-189 (its so weird I love it, but probably limited application / appeal until reconnaissance gets tweaked) Throw in a couple of Italian / Romanian birds?
  3. Daring low-level cross-channel raids in Typhoons and Mosquitos. Dash in at dawn, under 500ft to avoid radar, pop up and blap the port / uboat pen / marshalling yard / enemy airfield, then run away back home before the oppos have got their slippers on. Can we have fog? It would be great if we can have some proper fog...
  4. How dare you Sir! I'm not Scottish! Down here all that's required is a soft, damp flannel, some Jeyes fluid, a vigorous scrubbing motion, and one of Sgt Wilson's Extra Strong Turkish Cigarettes.
  5. Some discussion on this thread verging on unfrivolous. Outrageous I say. While the chaps enjoy a well deserved break this week, and maybe next, what do you all hope for from the next DD? Sometimes I think 'mk xiv liveries', but then I have to call the nurse for my meds because I've got far too excited to be in polite company...
  6. Would be interesting to see some data on number of aircraft lost (by a particular squadron etc) v. number of pilots lost... Obviously you're never going to lose more pilots than aircraft, but would be interesting to get a feel for the average number of prangs one could expect before one got the chop...
  7. To be fair, comparing the narrative to the historical facts, this should be more reasonably categorised as 'fiction or fantasy'. It seems Mr Bishop was a Very Naughty Canadian...
  8. Thank you all, Jason, team, and you buncha freaks and geeks. This community and sim has been the single most enjoyable part of the last year, and I see nothing bit good things for us all coming down the pipeline! Take care all. And happy new year.
  9. I must have been a good boy this year...
  10. Merry Christmas all, thank you to LLv34. I've had a blast on the server this year!
  11. I've sat in the back seat of a Spit & a T-6 Harvard. I think the new sounds are a more accurate reflection.
  12. Idk, I've flown in open cockpit 30's biplanes and warbirds and it sounds perfect to me.
  13. I don't think we have anything to complain about
  14. Guys, just to say have been having a blast on the server recently. loving the more varied weather, and maps. Keep up the good etc!
  15. zomfg I've been thinking the exact same thing...
  16. Almost certainly! I'm a regular at Old Warden, it's properly amazing. Shame 'Dodge' Bailey didn't manage to dodge that fence post! V glad everyone was ok, and with characteristic sang-froid the show went on - despite pretty miserable weather. And was very glad to see the tripehound back in the air this year!
  17. And now as she will look after 5 minutes with me at the wheel...
  18. I would like to state for the record that I would perform strange and unnatural acts for a Sopwith Snipe...
  19. So. It's tuesday. Man I'm hungry for news. I reckon we're gonna get something big & beefy before that thar xmas...
  20. In my adventures as a daring but incompetent low level pilot, I frequently manage to brush treetops with my prop. I've seen everything from instant prop break and engine seizure to severe vibration and rpm fluctuations to getting an 'engine damaged' notification and marginal loss of speed with no other real consequences. Admittedly this is terrain damage rather than projectile damage but it does seem to indicate that different states of prop damage do exist...
