  1. I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I will take any variant of any plane that the devs are willing to model. The historical airframe progression is one of my favorite aspects of this sim.
  2. I feel rather foolish, but it turns out that I had bought the Yak-1b last March! So...who wants one? FCFS. SKG210_Molders is the new owner of the Yak-1b. A big thanks again to SCG-Tzigy!
  3. The Yaks are the only planes that I don’t have. Yak-1, if it isn’t too much to ask. Thanks!
  4. It is underpowered, undergunned, and its armored cockpit isn’t worth a damn given the tendency of its wings to fold when hit by AAA. But there is something that I love about its look, its cockpit, and its crazy taxi/takeoff procedure.
  5. Straight out of ROF! And as someone who is very excited for Normandy, I’m right with Jason re: the heart attack factor of that vid 😓
  6. I was rather intimidated by the lack of technochat at first, but it forced me to learn about the planes' gauges/indicators and ultimately deepened my immersion and overall enjoyment of the campaign. (I had a similar experience with the lack of map contacts in my first TAW campaign.) I flew on Red this time around, and I appreciate Blue's level of automation that much more now! Thanks to everyone for a fun Western campaign. Now, time for me to go learn the new-ish dive systems in preparation for a return to the Eastern front...
  7. I am extremely disappointed by the lack of attention shown to this thread of late. How are we to get our Friday fix without any wolololoing?
  8. This is what I am excited to hear more about...
  9. I am finally ready to take the plunge into VR but want to ensure that I am not throwing money at a bottleneck first. I have a GTX 1080, i5-7600k 3.8 GHz, 16 GB DDR 4 DRAM, and SSD. I am leaning toward the Valve Index (or something with a comparable resolution) and, according to Steam's Index app, I should have no problems with my setup. That said, can anyone provide feedback regarding how well that GPU/CPU combination in particular will be able to handle IL2 in VR? Thanks in advance.
  10. The recent BoN announcement has sparked some complaints on this forum about the fact that we are revisiting a number of planes (P-47, P-51, Spit, Fw-190, Bf-109) that have already been modeled at in the series. I want to provide a different perspective on this that also explains why, in my humble opinion, this is exactly the direction that the dev team should be going. Like many (most?) players of this sim, I am a dyed-in-the-wool history junkie. I would have happily pursued a career in history had there been any money in it. One of my favorite aspects of WWII history in particular
