    FW190 A5 armament doubts

    A8, not F8. F8s were used with the SGs.

    De Havilland Mosquito & gun camera film

    Great film. I watch it every now and then. IIRC even George Lucas took some Inspiration from it for his death star attack sequence.

    DD today?

    Looks like the real deal. Nice work. https://www.relikte.com/quakenbrueck/

    Best aircraft for attacking ships

    I´d love to see this in a 1941-1943 British Channel module with RAF Hunting down Axis ships and U-Boats and leaning over the channel with rhubarbs and circuses. http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_mosquito_XVIII.html btw:

    De Havilland Mosquito & gun camera film

    Nope no Propaganda. http://www.historyofwar.org/articles/weapons_mosquito_XVIII.html The first unit to use the Mk XVIII was No. 248 Squadron, which added it to their Beaufighters. Operations began on 24 October 1943. The first U-boat kill came on 25 March 1944, when U-976 was sunk in the Bay of Biscay by two Mk XVIIIs. The Mk XVIII was also used by Nos. 235 and 254 squadrons, and saw action against surface ships in the build-up to D-Day. However, the heavy cannon was generally felt to be less effective than normal rockets, which could be carried by the standard FB Mk VI. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Havilland_Mosquito Another fighter-bomber variant was the Mosquito FB Mk XVIII (sometimes known as the Tsetse) of which one was converted from a FB Mk VI to serve as prototype and 17 were purpose-built. The Mk XVIII was armed with a Molins "6-pounder Class M" cannon: this was a modified QF 6-pounder (57 mm) anti-tank gun fitted with an auto-loader to allow both semi- or fully automatic fire.[nb 23] 25 rounds were carried, with the entire installation weighing 1,580 lb (720 kg).[139] In addition, 900 lb (410 kg) of armour was added within the engine cowlings, around the nose and under the cockpit floor to protect the engines and crew from heavily armed U-boats, the intended primary target of the Mk XVIII.[176] Two or four .303 (7.7 mm) Browning machine guns were retained in the nose and were used to "sight" the main weapon onto the target.[139]

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    See and that is where we differ. I would happily buy those simply to have a full 1941-1945 eastfront career timeframe or an early 1944 until end of war 1945 westfront timeframe. Different people, different tastes. Absolutely normal I guess. BTW: all those planes you listed I would buy also.

    Questions about the campaign mode (BoS)

    Bevore ending a mission, always make sure you are over friendly territory, or your pilot gets captured and your war is over.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    True. I wouldn´t mind getting some map packs with integrated career options for the planes already released and the add-on planes on top. But I think they aim at releasing "full stand alone" modules. Maybe they change that in the future. Would love to see a Kurland pack 1944-1945 or a Leningrad pack 1942-1944. Hell there is so much content on the eastfront still untouched. Yes. 1944/45 could still work though for eastfront with 190 A9, 109 G10 and Ta 152 and a 1944 westfront module with 190 A6, 190 A7 and late 109 G6 in Normandy/France would also work. Then add two 2-engined german bombers/heavy fighters to each module and everything would be set.
  11. I´m on Corsair Vengeance 4x4gig CMZ 16GX3M4A1600C9. Those are DDR3 Chips. So it shouldn´t be a problem if he has DDR-3 or DDR-4.
  12. Hard to tell, really. I´m on an olderly Sandy Bridge I7-2600@4200Ghz on a ASUS Maximus Extreme-Z and 16megs Ram with an ASUS Strix SLI 980 GTX graphic solution running everything graphically maxed out at 1920x1080 on Windows 10. It is all smooth sailing without any hickups for me. Don´t know why you get those response delays. I´m Alt-Tabbing all the time without any problems. IL2-Box is not even stored on my SSD, so we can exclude that as a problem. It is stored on one of my internal 4TB Western Digital purple harddrives.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Fingers crossed and that better be two. 1943/44 and 1944/45 is sorely lacking EF-content. I hope their market data on this would make sense and let them prosper.

    DD today?

    Same for me. Actually I´m more impatient about the Career implementation for the U2 then for the release of the Dora or 262. I can wait for them until eastern but I want to start a night witches career.

    Historica "hors-série" - Bodenplatte

    Get that one instead: Bodenplatte: The Luftwaffe's Last Hope (Stackpole Military History) (Englisch) John Manrho (Autor), Ron Putz (Autor) Better bang for the buck.

    DD today?

    Would make sense. Additionally content of the january patch which should bring career mode for U2?

    When Do You Stop Shooting?

    It is a result of the changes introduced with the 3.008 patch.

    I read that. I meant release timeframe.

    Haash, any approximate timeframe on this? I love Spitfires 🙂

    Career Missions

    This tip, stepping the career date forward by one day, helped me in the past to get my "stuck" career going again. Have you tried the tip described in this thread?

    When the P51 will be available?

    British Mustangs were doing business with 2nd TAF on the continent and thus Mustang IIIs would indeed make much sense for BoBP (19 Sqd, 65 Sqd, 68 Sqd, 122 Sqd). even Mustang I/IAs (2 Sqd, 168 Sqd, 268 Sqd, 430 Sqd) and Mustang IIs (2 Sqd, 268 Sqd) were there as per 2ndTAF book by Shores&Thomas Vol.2-3. Don´t know about 9th AF squadrons and Mustang B/Cs though. Could be, on the other hand, that we have to wait for the "Razorback" Mustangs & Thunderbolts until they do a Normandy scenario from 3/44-9/44 starting with tactical strikes over the Channel as preparation for Overlord and ending in the Netherlands where BoBP begins in 9/44.

    When the P51 will be available?

    True. But on the other hand it is a game after all, supposed to make fun to play. If we would have "real" conditions at least one side (german) wouldn´t have any fun anymore.

    When the P51 will be available?

    Sure, but don´t forget the 190 A6/A7 and G5/AS and G6/AS guys also got a few of those.
