  1. Don't know much about the old Yaks but it seems that the 9 and 9t are actually quite comparable to the C variant of the P-51, without the range of course. Yak-9 Max speed - 600 km/h (370 mph, 320 kn) at 4,300 m (14,108 ft), Just about P-51 cruise speed at 362 mph but still respectable. as the G-6 variant of 109, (its main adversary) only had a max of 365. (all at 14,000 Ft) Range - 910 km (570 mi) Not specified if with drop tanks but still ahead of the German 109's and 190's with a combat range max of 572 km and assumed drop tank range of 880 km. Rate of climb - 16.3 m/s (3,210 ft/min) Just under the 109 G-6 at 3300 ft/min. But, matching the 51 Wing loading - 167.3 kg/m2 (34.3 lb/sq ft) Exactly the same as before just slightly under the 109 but matching 51 Power/mass - 0.3066 kW/kg (0.1865 hp/lb) Exactly the same as before just slightly under the 109 (0.201 hp/lb) but matching 51 Wingspan - 9.74 m (31 ft 11 in) Shorter than both the 109 and 51 so as usual you can expect great roll rate advantage. Firepower - 1 × 20 mm ShVAK cannon, and 1 × 12.7 mm Berezin UBS machine gun. Very comparable to the German MG151/20 cannon. Overall as a late 42' early 43', fighter it will definitely be a challenger to the 109 and 190's as it was regarded on equal grounds as both. I'll try and find some more concrete info on the main differences between types if I get the time. Hope this helped a little! S!
  2. I agree with this, .50s don't blow off a tail or wings as easy like the German HE. But, once you get good with the gunnery of the American planes they are a force to be reckoned with.
  3. More of a do what you want IMO. If i'm shot to crap and don't have the advantage I'll bug out and come back when I'm able to fight on my terms.
  4. Just calm the hell down. You made your point they made theirs. If they call you an ass maybe look at how you phrased what you said. Forums are supposed to be a place to communicate and discuss about the sim we all enjoy. Christ.
  5. Redkestrel is spot on with everything, just wanted to add. Make sure your motherboard specs allow ddr4 ram sticks. To my knowledge most boards that support ddr3 cant support higher speed ddr4 sticks if any at all.
  6. 50gb is super low for the amount of content you get out of every expansion. Hell my DCS world install is 110 gb with 7 planes and 2 maps.
  7. Depends on a number of factors, What's my airspeed? Over 250 I may contemplate, but 200 or less I'd just dive away. Turning in would dump too much speed. Especially since the 109 rate fights better than the P-40. How much fuel do I have? Less weight can give me more speed for an actual fight (this also goes for ammo I've used). What did the bandit do after the merge? If he dove I'd follow but if I'm facing an F-4 and they go vertical I know I can't follow. Surprise and speed are your friends fighting in the P-40. Energy fighting keeps you in the fight longer but once you reach the deck you almost have to run.
  8. You're definitely not wrong it is a pain to fly...but I love it. Equal advantage with a good opponent will 75% of the time get you killed. I primarily use it for bouncing and hunting. stay up high and use your dive speed to make a good first pass. I can usually get 2 passes before I start to run out of steam. Plus it ahs excellent maneuverability in a dive and with speed. I find it very easy to stay behind a fleeing 109 which makes them an easy kill for my .50 cals
  9. You can probably get away with a faster 8 gb ram stick for now. But, the two issues are the CPU and Graphics card. For max settings at 60 fps a Ryzen 3600 and a card equivalent to a 1080 8gb is going to get you there. If you want just High performance for cheaper id go for a Ryzen 5 2600 (equivalent intel would be I-5 8600k) and something like a Radeon Rx 580 or 590 alternatively you could go nvidia and get a 1660 or 1070 all should be 8gb vram.
  10. That money runs out fast when you don't put out more content and you have a whole team to pay every week. They've found a good medium between the two. Hell just look at the last Dev diary. They're fixing stuff.
  11. Dude if you don't play on the server just don't respond on the topic. You obviously know a great deal about the history and that's fantastic. But, there's no reason to be toxic about it. Just let people play what they want. Doesn't matter if it's historical or not in a multiplayer server basing its self on historical accuracy. But allowing freedoms for people who don't want to know the history to still enjoy the game
  12. Great video! That second kill with the pilot snipe was beautiful
  13. I can finally live up to my name lol thanks alot for these!
  14. That skin looks amazing, I can't wait to see more man!
  15. It only shows up if you've purchased it through the Il-2 site
  16. I was talking about punishment for shooting a parachute not leaving formation. My bad
  17. Full weight for the P-47 is around 12 tons compared to the P-38's 17 tons. But you also have to realize the P-38 is running two engines. Both being Allison 1710 v12 engines. You're going to have a much better power to weight ratio compared to the P-47 which is why the lightning feels better even at low altitude compared to the thunderbolt
  18. I have to agree, it's the only skin I'm waiting for lol
  19. Right around 68% fuel is just wing tanks, anything higher fills the main fuselage tanks
  20. I think this would be a great choice but you run into the problem of this not being very common in the luftwaffe. Only coming onto the scene by January of 45'. Only one surviving 152 is currently being restored and not much is known about the development of the plane. Or, even how many were made. It would definitely be a cool plane to have as a collector but I dont know how able the team is to make an accurate FM and modeling of it.
  21. That's awesome! Did you bounce him or did you actually get into a fight with him?
  22. Just played combat box and got my first two confirmed kills with the P-51 and I'm really loving the plane. 50 cals are deadly and it feels like a rocket above 15 thousand feet. I also saw Scharfi's latest P-51 video and loved it. Anyone else having good success with the mustang?
  23. I have a Ryzen 5 2600 and a Radeon Rx 580 8gb and I don't drop below 60 anymore, haven't seen any stuttering at all either
