  1. At the risk of reviving a dead thread. This is my 2 cents about why B-17/B-24 should be added at some point as an AI aircraft. The reason it should be AI is because I feel that the management of the aircraft is more than just those of the plane, but also the crews - so in order to give an authentic experience, that would require IL-2 to go beyond the realm of their concept. 1) They should be AI, as much as I'd love to fly them, I think that in IL-2 they don't fit into the game as much. 2) We have many very high performance aircraft that have been and are going to be released. They were designed around attacking and defending bombers at 27,000ft. I play more multiplayer than SP and currently there is no reason for a P-47 to climb to its best fighting altitude because there is no reason for the Germans to want to/need to fight that high as well. 3) Immersion in SP, to see the contrails of a light of bombers passing overhead while completing ur missions in BP sounds incredibility immersive. Furthermore, a good chunk of Western front ground battles happened on the BP map, so if they ever wanted to release a tank pack for the Western Front with a battle zone or two on BP, again seeing the bombers flying over and crashing around you would be very immersive. (See Belton Y. Cooper's book, Death Trap, for a just hand experience of this) 4) It could be a cool campaign expansion for both Axis and Allies on the BP map to be defending/attacking the bomber streams.
  2. Hey Jason, Im working on an American as well. Ill be done on Tues or Weds.
  3. Work In Progress... but we couldn't resist taking her out for a spin on "The Unprofessionals" this weekend. I'm happy to say that Pengie IV is looking pretty decent.
  4. On the subject of gunners. I was working on them and when I read the line " I have a turret malfunction." It seemed very... odd, especially for an American. I know we are to do it as it is, which is fine, but I feel like "My TURRETS JAMMED!" or "My damn turret is busted" seems to be more natural and in the moment. Also, I take it we don't need to do any mixing or balancing before we send them?
  5. @Jason_Williams I am about halfway through them. Ill get them to you by EOW. To join in this conversation as well. Perhaps she should record the British Spotter or Airfield lines?
  6. OK everyone... "Ole Cock III" is ready to rock! I hope you all enjoy. Ole Cock III Download Ole Cock III Winter Download
  7. Click on DetCord's Hanger in his signature. Then find the P-47 drop down.

  9. Here is a little sneak peak on the finished Ole Cock III. I know someone already made one. So, I don't mean to step on any toes. I really liked the skin so I decided to give it a go myself. I am still working on other ships from the 56thFG.
  10. Dang @325th_Bugsy, those are awesome looking! Great job!
  11. Yes. He mentions at the beginning that he had a Ju-87 on station... and once his ordinance was expended, it seemed he was doing recon for them... watching for targets they might not be aware of.
  12. I think the Fi-156 has a very important role to play actually. I just watched Magz Tiger I video and I feel like in Co-Op or PvP the Fi-156 can be a huge asset to the tanks on the ground.
  13. Well.. if you guys need some backup.. as it seems u have many already. American- Mid 20s - California born and raised I'd be happy to help if you guys still need it.
  14. I think you are correct Bugsy, I was looking at the P-47D20(somethings) and it seems that the earlier in the war the greener the Zinc Chromate was. Here is an ARTICLE outlining some trends of colors. An excerpt from the section on the P-47...
