  1. This nails it. A. This is the proposed order in the schedule, but I warn you that it will likely change, some may finish early and some may take longer then planned. Also, dates will shift so I'm not going to assign any dates to them. They will be released as soon as they are ready. Yak-9/ 9T P-47D-22 Hurricane Mk. IIb/c/d C-47 (AI) Fw-190 A-6 Spitfire Mk. XIV Typhoon Mk.Ib P-51B/C Bf-190 G-6 (Late) Ju-88 C-6a B-26 (AI) Mosquito FB Mk.VI Me-410 Ar-234 V-1
  2. Some enlightening stuff here: Kursk 1943: A Statistical Analysis von Anders Frankson, Niklas Zetterling https://books.google.de/books?id=qdr9AQAAQBAJ&pg=PA178&lpg=PA178&dq=panther+kursk+technical+deficiencies&source=bl&ots=HVl37lBNau&sig=ACfU3U0IC_OYrS4x0cap_A8mBavZXgeAOg&hl=de&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwigrN3TkZXnAhWNKVAKHe_zCMEQ6AEwAHoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=panther kursk technical deficiencies&f=false
  3. The thing should flame up after 15 min randomly due to leakage in the gas line and other malfunctions.
  4. Thanks. Things are getting better and better. Any info on coniferous trees for the Rhineland map? They are in Battle of Moscow. Any plans to port them over?
  5. Good Questions. I guess only the programmers can answer that. I hope the gameengine is build somewhat modular, so that they can optimize/replace parts as need arises. They have done great things if we compare BoS of 2014 fame with where we stand now after 6 years.
  6. Hi Pat, what about one of these G6s? Would fit nicely in the BoBP career mode? Both planes flown by Klaus Mietusch III/JG26 in spring and fall 44.
  7. It will happen sooner or later once they hit a tech wall they can´t get through. Until then (2023/2025 ?) they will try to optimise the existing engine. It will get interesting once they have to decide what will follow after BoN. My guess is a 44/45 EF module with Yak3 and La7, but after that, maybe with PTO the gameengine will be maxed out.
  8. Dunno if it is that easy to code, but it is one of the easier ToDos for sure. Plane will look as one of Klaus Mietuschs machines. Either like his spring 44 or fall 44 crate. Flown by Hautmann Klaus Mietusch, Stab III./JG 26, Vendevile/France - Rheine/Germany, March 8, 1944 Flown by Major Klaus Mietusch, Stab III./JG 26, München-Gladbach/Germany, September 17, 1944
  9. Yep, they will be there for a purpose. Flightsimming is not the only thing I will be doing with that rig. I will wait, however for the 10900K release and see how the benchmarks turn out for that CPU before finally pulling the trigger.
  10. Thanks for the hint. Any estimate when the 10900K might arrive? I guess my trusty old rig will easily carry on for another 6 months or so.
  11. Quick Question for the more knowledgeable with regard to hardware. At present I am using a i7-2600K@4.000Ghz on a Asus Mobo (Maximus IV Extreme Z) with 16 Gigs and two Asus GTX980 in SLI Combo, which served me well over the past years, but that rig is getting a tad bit dated and I am no more able to max out graphics in FullHD. Based on the Infos thankfully posted here in this thread and the Remagen benchmark thread I am planning to do some upgrades and during 2020 I am planning to invest in the following components. The aim is to have maximum reasonable performance for Il-2 GB for the next years to come and to have some horsepower to do the next step and perhaps later in 2021 go for VR and a Pimax 8K+: MoBo: Asus Maximus XI Code CPU: i9 9900K RAM: Corsair Dominator, 64 GB (4 x 16 GB), DDR4 3200 (PC4-25600), C16 SSD: Samsung MZ-V7P1T0BW 970 PRO 1 TB NVMe M.2 CPU Cooler: ASUS ROG Ryujin 360 Watercooling Solution GPU: My aim is for Asus 2080Ti which will replace my GTX-980-SLI Combo in the 2nd half of this year. Any ideas? Good? Bad? Suggestions for optimisations? Possible performance bottlenecks?
  12. Doesn´t look too good for MK 103 combat usage. Looks like that variant was shelved in favor of the Bk 5 solution in late 1943. Some quotes also on 151/20 and rockets: So it looks to me as if MK 103 solution was shelved somewhere end43/early44 and they focussed on BK 5 which went operational with II./ZG 26 and 2 machines which were ordered from ErkKdo25 for operational trial fitted with Flak 43. Until march 44 they flew with 4 rockets per plane and 4x 151/20 armament.
