  1. Since there is a bug with German AA it seems the best solution would be to switched it out with allied AA until it is fixed.
  2. He isn't making excuses he is stating a fact that red players pretty much spammed the map with pe-2's as it is the only good allied plane in map 1. It can also be said that there wasn't much effort on the part of blue to hit ground targets as out of the 25 top ground killers after map 1 only 4 were German. I wouldn't be surprised if the number of people predominately flying Pe-2 sorties rose massively on map one this TAW compared to the previous two. Now had blue countered with equal amounts of 110 spam map one would still be hanging in balance. If you want a realistic mix of aircraft types flown the total number of aircraft available should broken down to number of specific types. Keep in mind this would also result in limited numbers of 109's available so that could result in more prey for allied fighter pilots and less infinite 109 spam to contend with. It would be cool to implement a supply system where airfields had to be replenished by aircraft ferried from the airfield next to the depot.
  3. I would like to fly the Il-2 more, but don't want to risk it unless I can get good fighter cover. Flew it once this campaign so far and got gang banged by 109's even with I-16's in the area.
  4. I don't know about you, but I don't spend nights at the airbase I land at.
  5. Meh. not necessary IMO. Your not clumped together with a bunch of others in a predetermined spot on landing and you can hit the gas if you see a bomber bearing down on you.
  6. Make any deaths before take off not count towards your life counter sounds pretty reasonable.
  7. Siddy you traitorous scum. You shot up my Pe-2.
  8. Artillery and Defensive positions have had almost non existent flak during the last few sorties and they were untouched before our runs.
  9. I'm not seeing any fast shooting aaa over German Tank column even though I destroyed one; also seen none over German train station but we took heavy AA. Is something wrong?
  10. Makes sense as your only partly alive.
  11. This is because people would just belly land at high speed just to get back up in the air quicker. Rarely are you able to RTB with 30 percent combat damage.
  12. No wonder he doesn't have FC yet.
  13. I've shot down F's that high while in a SPAD.
  14. Noticed that the Aldis sight doesn't look like its mounted at the same angle as the Vickers MG. Does this mean that the line of fire of the guns will not line up with the 3d model of where the guns are pointed? I remember this was the case in RoF and I was hoping it would get fixed in FC. By the way thanks for getting rid of the annoying windscreen tint.
  15. In this situation he pretty much committed to nose low if you pointed your nose at him once he did that then it wouldn't have been a true head to head pass. If he did try to go head on with you and you really didn't want to roll the dice split S and dive out before he gets close. Had he gone head on with you and you went vertical like you did in the video he would have a low 12 shot at you.
  16. Wieghs less than Albatross DVa, Fokker DVII, Dolphin, SE5a, and Pfalz D3a.
  17. The moment you saw him go nose low you should have either simply put your nose on him started shooting or you might have been able to turn onto his six, but I'm not sure of the later option.
  18. Yeah, but it does you no good when your out of position (not high and behind). Maybe I should have stated that you weren't in a good enough position prior to engagement. Notice he went nose low if anything you should have applied pressure right there in the merge and not have gone vertical as he was able to get behind your 3-9 line and give you a hard angle. In the end you were not in position to use your energy effectively.
  19. Should have refused engagement all together as you didn't have enough of an energy advantage at the very beginning. Looks like you should tried to have made a run for it after missing your shots at the 24 second mark rather than go vertical and and let him catch you at a low energy state with no ability to avoid his nose.
  20. Might not be exactly within the scope of the current topic, but currently the visibility of bullet hits are excessive IMO and make long range sniping easier than IRL as one just adjusts fire until they see brown puffs coming off the enemy plane at 500m. In real life I doubt a FMJ rifle bullet would create a such large puffs (if any at all) striking against a wood and fabric target that isn't dusty. I think it would be more realistic to not have any rifle bullet strike dust puffs at all on WW1 birds. I agree, FC's damage model is way better than RoF's.
  21. I think this a big reason why we hear reports of Camels being unable to catch anything simply because the Germans in slightly faster airplanes at altitude avoided getting anywhere close to camels while at a disadvantaged or equal position. In MP people are way more likely to chase others in a suicidal manner to the ends of the map even if it means sacrificing all your altitude going deeper into enemy territory.
  22. To be fair those rules were written while he was flying Nieuports which had no hope of diving away from anything German. That is not saying that SE5a's could outrun bullets, but they could quickly get out of effective gun range by diving presumably in a jinking manner especially when the Germans would be afraid of their Nieuport knock off wings departing the air-frame.
  23. Love flying Peshkas in rainy weather.
  24. I'm hoping we get a scoring/logging system for recon so servers don't have to make everything centered around bombing as. Would also be nice to have somewhat realistic artillery spotting in MP that doesn't rely solely on flying over a designated area for a specified amount of time. I hope the HP400 and Gotha are some of the last RoF aircraft that make it into FC as both aren't nearly as important to the daylight air-war as the other aircraft in RoF and would take longer than other aircraft to develop.
  25. Didn't the Finns use a French fighter of some type?
