    So who else is looking forward to P-38 ?

    Ki 43 "Oscar" vs P-38 in IL-2 1946 was fun, speed vs maneuverability.

    Thanks for reminding me about that. Now you mention it I remember reading that too. That would be a cool feature to have!

    Never said it did. I was just pointing out another circumstance. Rickenbacker did mention working with AAA batteries but it was more of a special circumstance than the norm. Most I have read indicates this. Also, AAA did not directly communicate with pilots, as they had no way to. Arty spotters were the only planes with direct radio communications to the ground, and only to the arty battery they were spotting for. (barring communicating with colored panels and dropped messages which required the pilots to be close to the ground and were sketchy at best) Rickenbacker also said that the chances were VERY low that AAA would get you AT ALTITUDE, but that going low over the trench lines it was a matter of when not if you would be shot down as everyone with a weapon, from MGs to rifles and pistols, fired at low flying planes. That is the problem I see in RoF right now, like others have said, as it is safest to fly low across the trenches, but climb high and AAA gets you.

    Pilots were supposed to stay away from areas with heavy friendly AAA defense as the battery would fire upon any plane in the area. Rickenbacker mentioned this in his book and the near disastrous results from entering these restricted areas.

    P-51D Interesting characteristic

    BTW C.U.P is obsolete and has been superseded by B.A.T. Just incase you didn't know.

    That seems to be the AI's go to move in IL-2 BoX right now. This is definitely needed.

    BTW I was just flying the P-51B in IL-2 1946 with B.A.T. mod and the whistling sound is there in level flight, dipping in volume and frequency when the speed drops below 200 mph.

    @[CPT]CptJackSparrowas much as drivers keep the goods moving, you people at the truck stops keep the drivers moving. Thank You for your part.

    Nice summary RedKestrel! Unfortunately, with me as flight leader, my AI my wingmen go their own way, speed and time. I end up lone wolfing with the rest of my flight somewhere in the area flying with each other but not with me. Giving commands to them does nothing, and when the enemy engage they just fly around until shot down, not even attacking the enemy back. This is in my LA5s8 career BTW. I would like if the radio options was like IL-2 1946, and if the AI followed commands. +1

    Freightliner Classic XL. Detroit 60 Series 515hp 18 speed trany. Air ride on all axles, even the steer, makes a nice ride.

    That is the norm now. Even many of the drivers Since I have been doing local morning deliveries for the summer it has been younger kids waiting for the bus mostly. School has been extended by a week at least here in Maine due to all the snow days this winter.

    The best part of being a driver is honking the horn for kids.
