  1. They already where close back then. Don´t know why they changed it. Also they had evergreen spruces and firs in, which are also lacking now.
  2. I can second that. Had that happening while flying an intercept mission with III./JG 54 from Babenhausen in Feb/45 roughly into the direction of Bonn. Whole flight spawning in the Taunus forest at Ground level within trees.
  3. The map could use every help it could get. Definitively an improvement. If you could get it to your BoK standard that would be great.
  4. Just saw this on Twitter: If that means they are doing some kind of B17 revival, I admit I´m hyped. www.microprose.com/
  5. Looks like North Weald: 1939 pic: http://www.sbap.be/events/2019/038nweald2019/038nweald2019.htm and here: https://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=69125
  6. Maybe someone will also take care of this: Antwerp, "City of Sudden Death" Impacts in greater Antwerp V-1 V-2 October 1944 27 58 November 1944 64 126 December 1944 110 130 January 1945 117 155 February 1945 224 59 March 1945 86 42 - - - Totals 628 570 http://www.v2rocket.com/start/chapters/antwerp.html http://www.v2rocket.com/start/chapters/antwerpmap.html
  7. Yep. Last time with my D-9 I managed to maneuver kill 3 AI-Tempests. All of them obviously blacked out and crashed in the ground without firing a shot. I like it.
  8. A once squashed bug which rised his head with 4.004 again.
  9. 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.

  10. 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
  11. The thing should flame up after 15 min randomly due to leakage in the gas line and other malfunctions.
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.

  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. Can´t wait to do some "Schnellbomber Business" with this baby at dawn over Southampton. Two 8-round magazines with automatic side feed for the gun, if I understand Forsyth correctly. Don´t ask how they were supposed to switch magazines. The latter Staffel’s primary task was to trial heavy calibre armament such as the 3.7 cm Flak 18 and Flak 43 and the five-centimetre Flak 41 anti-aircraft cannon. These weapons were tested in a variety of hand-fed, belt-fed and automatic configurations. In the Me 410, the cannon were installed with automatic side feed in the form of two six-round magazines for the Flak 18 and two of eight rounds for the Flak 43. Forsyth, Robert. Me 210/410 Zerstörer Units (Combat Aircraft) (Kindle-Positionen1673-1683). Bloomsbury Publishing. Kindle-Version. In late August one of E.Kdo 25’ s Me 410s had been flown to Vechta, where the airfield workshop set about installing a Flak 43 in the aircraft. This weapon promised a higher rate of fire (240 rounds per minute) than the Flak 18 (60 rounds per minute), but by the end of November satisfactory experiments had still not been carried out.
