  1. I've noticed you've mentioned this before in one of your posts. Who would you list among your "fringe screamers" i.e. people who you consider to be neither reasonable nor moderate "Lufties"?
  2. That's interesting to know Gavrick and to some extent quite compelling. However, what interests me more is the test data I assume the Team must have on LaGG-3 and La-5 roll-rates. Would you be so kind as to tell me where this information came from? There's a story going around on the internet that La-5FN data was used for this purpose. I know, that's crazy but that's what they're saying ...

    Crash land then strafed and killed

    Well, if you're a jerk and you're looking for some justification for acting like a jerk; then I guess you just found one.
  4. Yes, except; if your enemy is at 1500 m and you cunningly position yourself at 2500 m, what's to stop yet another EA appearing overhead at say, 3500 m? The answer is there is nothing to prevent that happening. That is why, in a largely unstructured environment like multiplayer, people who fly aircraft with limited turn (ie German) and increasingly inadequate climb, speed and 'non-magical roll', are always going to prefer a top down approach. The entry of the La-5FN will simply confirm the correctness of this well established trend. So anyone flying German who wants to try and get the odd kill (or just stay alive if possible) is going to abandon the ground war aspects of the game as a lost cause - if they haven't already done so. The result is ultimately farcical for all concerned. Oh well I guess that's what happens when you get too clever by half.
  5. And just exactly what is it that Red guys believe they might have to complain about? Come on let's hear it then. What is it that you see in the historical record that isn't available to you and then some. Is it the roll rate; is that the problem? Do you think the LaGG and the La-5 and Yak don't roll quickly enough????? Is that where this is going????
  6. There is little or no dominance because the best attribute of the 190 (its roll rate) has been nullified. As we know, pretty much every VVS fighter in the game with the exception of the Spit somehow manages to roll as well as a 190. It's not mentioned in the historical record but that's what we have 'in-game'. Now we know for a fact that the FN rolled better than the La 5 ( the Russians went to great pains to make that happen and the Germans are agreed that they came up with the goods) so how much faster will that be? Are we now going to have a lol crazy uber-roller on our hands or are we going to see a quiet roll-back on the performance of the LaGG and La-5. I can't wait to see which way this goes.
  7. Why in this scenario would you take the FN all the way down to the deck? The 202 can't run away. Just stay above it and kill it at your leisure. What's the 202 pilot going to do to stop you?
  8. So, if I understand you correctly; you're saying the roll rates for the LaGG and La 5 are historically accurate? Really? So that's your position is it? So how much faster do you think the FN is going to roll?
  9. It isn't about who had the better aircraft. It's about being deceived.
  10. Wow ... it sure is going to be interesting watching this one play out. Very unfortunate if the devs ended-up getting porked in the butt, so to speak ,with their own 'unintended consequences'.
  11. If that's the case, BoB Spitfires and Hurricanes would have failed to stop the LW in 1940 - so not true. Cannon do a better job but standard rifle caliber machine guns will destroy aero engines.

    Which Wulf?

    And yet, if any sane individual was given the option of a 'no dope' root canal, or a sturmbock assault on an escorted bomber formation, you'd take the root canal every time.

    Spitfire IX discussion

    Sure, in the latter stages of '44 and early '45, when the LW fighter force was at such a low ebb that Bomber Command was able to recommence daylight operations over the Continent. But from 1939 through to D Day, the air war over the Continent, and over Germany in particular, was an entirely different kettle of fish.

    Which Wulf?

    Why in god's name would you want a Sturmbock 190? At best you might describe it as a ponderous bullet magnet. At worse, it's going to be a wet dream moment for escort fighters. Christ; as if life wasn't tough enough; now you want a Sturmbock 190..... Nooooooooooowh.

    Dog-fighting in the Mig-3

    Not that surprising given that the Germans didn't actually have an operational 'strategic bomber' In my experience the Mig-3 is decidedly faster than an A-3 at 4k. .
