    RP-3/60lb rocket fusing and failure rates

    The game do not model failure rates. (Half of VVS would go down just because unreliability and technical problems.) But seriously, it's probably too hard to obtain reliable sources to model failure rates of different systems/weapons/planes/engines and so on.

    DD today?

    Yes, in USSR the role of aerial recon was far smaller in compare with other militaries. Contrary to GB, USA, Germany, Japan there were no special aerial recon training schools in USSR, to recon units the worst pilots was delegated, often as a form of punnishment. Recon service in USSR had vely low rank and respect. VVS didn't order even one dedicated recon plane throught the whole war.

    On the topic of Thunderbolts

    I'm afraid Ta152C with 150 octane fuel would be more or less like Spiteful. And i think more Ta152's were built than Sitefuls.
  4. La-5FN had similar cooling system, even with summer Kuban i can fly La-5FN with cowl flaps fully closed, oil radiator also fully closed, full boost and max RPM and after 10 minutes i'm even below optimal temperature! In La-5FN manual there is stated 10 min boost was restricted due to thermal issues of cylinders. Here i can fly with fully closed radiators in the hottest enviroment without consequences with cold engine. What is even a purpose of oil radiator in La-5FN if you can fly with fully closed in the hottest conditions?

    KOTA GPS

    No. It is not true. It is the opposite Technochat, in it's first form, has been added to the game in September 2014 as an option to turn on to already complete game engine. "the games engine system is based around it" - no, it is the opposite again. Technochat's messages are fiction and it will lie to you. Technochat will tell you "you are combat mode, dont fly at combat mode during cruise" and so on even if you exceed some parameters with 1%. I.e. Normal "mode" is 2250RPM / 1.15 ata and Climb is 2,400 RPM / 1.25 ata, but even if you exeed this parameters with tiny amount like 1% - technochat will lie to you "you are combat mode, dont fly at combat mode during cruise" but it will not cause any negative consequences for the engine. You still have to comply with numbers from manual. Technochat is a relict of old which should help new players to gain some general idea, but it had been just added to finished game and that's why it will mislead the player in many cases. But let's talk about the topic - GPS, not technochat.
  6. Let's take Fw 190 A3 or A5. You have 3 minutes of 1.42ata/2700RPM guaranteed but in practice you can go more than 6 minutes. With ~5 minutes you are 99% save all the time. So there are no "strict limits". The engine is not going to give up after the time delivered by developers from manual. (In real life the engines would go even longer but it's another story) No, it's not a bug, it's a choice and necessary simplification of techno. If you supass the limit by 1% what is completely insignificant techno will tell you you are in i.e. "combat mode", "don't cruise with combat mode" and so on. But you exeeded the RPM limit by 1% what will not have any consequences contrary to what you could anticipate seeing "combat mode" warning. Anyway it's sufficient for novice players which have to know the basics.
  7. It is not a bug. It's a decision to put the workforce in much more important matters. Technochat is kind of novice players help to more or less know the limits of the plane. I doubt it is even consider to expand it even more to cover every specific engine regime in every plane. Who would lose the time to code all low mix different economy modes, cruise, nominal, different types of combat, climb, emergency, take off, all out, maximum possible, boost, erhohte, forsazh, international power with different mix, RPM, manifold, supercharger settings and so on and so on. Devs would lose a big amount of precious time to code some tutorial functionality. Techno will give you some estimated most basic regimes when you are begginer (and lie you in many cases) and that's all you need to know for start. When you will know the plane better just print them from official topic or from here and you are good to go:

    DD today?

    Luftwaffe on the eastern front was scattered, small and lacked people and equipement. Since the summer 1943 Luftwaffe, when it comes to fighters, was far stronger on the western front, more numerous, better trained, better equiped etc. because the enemy was more demanding. Western front and defence of the sky over the Reisch was priority for Luftwaffe.

    US Tactical Air Command conducted research during the Vietnam War to determine what factors are most important from the point of view of aircraft survivability in CAS missions. It turned out the speed, manuverability and small size are the most important. Armor surprisingly proved to be far less effective. That's why slow, heavy, armored IL-2 suffered the biggest combat losses in whole history of military aviation, during the victorious war. Fast and agile Thunderbotls or FW 190F, even in CAS missions, suffered relatively small loses; delivering a lot more ordinance to the enemy in every mission than IL-2.

    Things I'd like to see fixed/added in BOBP

    The panel is animated, you can clearly see amount and position of bomb to be released, their release order, release interval etc. Technochat is not needed, the only thing which is not is animated is bomb disarm/arm selector. It would be very nice to have this tiny animation also but as long as you don't use bomb fuse disarmament you don't need any technochat.

    Late War but no Griffon engine - Shame

    When it comes to bubble canopy - 18 March 1945 Luftwaffe practically didn't exists anymore. But malcolm hood XIVs saw some fight. Bubble top XIV from March 1945 would be as historical as Ta-152H-1 and P-47M over Europe (also allowed for combat flights in the middle of March 1945 when there was no real opposition anymore, the war was over, Luftwaffe was no more). Mk.XVI with bubble top also became available since March 1945 and Malcolm Hood variand was nearly identical to LF Mk.IXe we already have. Just an engine produced in different factory. Spitfires (all of them) will always have special place in my heart and i'm really glad we have V and IX with different engines.
  12. Don't look at technochat, it's fiction and it will lie to you. Use parameters -IRRE-Therion- wrote. Technochat will tell you "you are combat mode, dont fly at combat mode during cruise" and so on even if you exceed parameters with 1%. I.e. Climb is 2,400 RPM / 1.25 ata, but even if you exeed this parameters with tiny amount like 2,420 RPM / 1.25 ata - technochat will tell you his "you are combat mode, dont fly at combat mode during cruise" but it will not cause any negative consequences for your engine. Technochat is a relict of old which should help new players to gain some general idea. Have a fun with the game.

    Red fighters Reset trim exploit

    No problem to leave the button to this two planes.
  14. With Korea there is one issue; only two planes are on the top of the food chain, Sabre and Mig-15. The rest is far inferior and can't compete.

    Red fighters Reset trim exploit

    Yes, of course, removing this option would be historically correct. TWWII planes did not have any magic button that canceled the values on the trims. You had to spin the wheel.
