    I have never heard of that before nor how it could prevent someone from hitting something at 300m at level flight. The retical always keeps zero from any direction of view so long as you can see the center.


    I was compensating for the reticle appearing off center and it was making me shoot lower all the time. *shrug* It works now, so.

  2. Hey all,

    Many thanks for all the help. I did plenty of research, and still something was just not working out for me. Like I had said, this was not my first combat sim, nor the fist time I've practiced deflection, and types of pursuit.

    However, it WAS the first time I had been using Track IR on IL-2 after using it on DCS World, and that was a mistake. The profile I had set up for DCS was incredibly inappropriate for IL-2, so I modified a profile for IL-2 and BAM. Problem is solved. It looks like the gunsight tends to go into a misalignment if the Track Ir profile is too sensitive and twitchy and that little misalignment was enough to throw off my aim completely.

    I sorted it out, and I'm back to my usual self of a 4 to 1 K/D ratio.

    Practice makes perfect; Set up your convergence higher and shoot higher!


    I can't mate. I have to shoot so high I can't even see the target. I don't know if it's because the 109 has such a long nose, but it's not working out for me. I don't have xray vision to see what a plane under my nose is doing.

    What is your convergence setting? With the historical correct convergence of 400m this can't be. Or you are guessing the distance wrong, when your rounds all fall short.

    350 meters. I was just in a match where an IL-2 filled my reticle and the shells still did not hit it as I was diving on it. This game cannot be this hard, it's not my first rodeo, but I don't get how people do it so easily and I just can't even land shots on planes that are not parked.

    Don't confuse a good sustained climb rate for better at climbing in any situation. Generally speaking, German planes climb faster than Soviet planes, yes. This doesn't mean that you will be able to just point the nose up and get away every time. Even though a Yak can't keep up with a 109 in a 5 minute, max power, climb it can hold out long enough in a climb to get guns on target and as you slow down in a steep climb you become easier to shoot. At the end of the day you can't out climb a bullet so you shouldn't try. One thing you can try, rather than climbing like mad and hoping not to get shot is something 109 player's seem convinced is a terrible idea: turn. Contrary to popular belief the 109 is fairly good in a turn, and rolls decently. These facts along with the climbing performance mean the plane is good is scissors, better in rolling scissors and very good in yoyos. The low speed stability imparted by the leading edge slats make for wicked overshoot potential as well.

    Yeah I get what you mean. It's impossible for me to get a kill on the 109. I was just in a sustained climb at 600kph chasing 2 MiG-3s, one of them stalled and I kept chasing the one with more energy.

    The one who stalled took 5 seconds to 180, get energy catch on to me and shot me out with a short burst from over 600 meters away. That doesn't make any sense.

  6. Heya,

    What are some tips to fly against Russian planes? I know they are superior to Germans at low altitudes, but even if I am clocking 600 MPH and go for the clouds they still catch up to me, outclimb, and perform at any altitude be it 2k or even 6k. I thought Russians underperformed at high altitudes?

    Also, I noticed when I was chasing a level flight plane that even in level flight my guns fall way too short even if I am at 300m from the target, I feel the shells fall way too short when I am in any kind of persuit and no amount of lead helps as there is a point I need to give so much lead I can't even see the plane I am aiming at. Not a rookie in flight sims, but things just feel ''wrong'' with this game when it comes to energy management and gun accuracy in Germans vs Russians.

    Could you share some tips, please?
