  1. Apparently early in the war compliance wasn't very good on the continent either. 201 Harold L. Smith, Britain in the Second World War: a Social History (Manchester: Manchester University Press, 1996), p.2. 202 Calder, The People's War: Britain, 1939-1945, p.337. 104 A pilot leaves England which is ‗blacked out‘ and his first impression is one of thankfulness for neutral countries. In reasonable weather conditions he sees Holland, a blaze of light, and later perhaps Denmark with a blacked out area between them. At first the blackout in Germany was not complete. Towns like Hamburg and Bremen could be identified by the fact that there were large lighted areas in the positions where the pilot expected to find these towns.203 skud
  2. I guess the HE-111s threw me off. I didn't consider UK friendly territory for 111s although a few were captured and test flown. You're absolutely right. Black out meant blackout sir!! skud
  3. Target area can be blacked out. The rest of the flight in friendly territory would be lit. It looked great when we had it. skud
  4. Very Nice! All the effects and environment coming together nicely skud
  5. Why not make it a expansion pack and/or collectors? If they don't like the night fighters or the way its implemented they can choose to not buy it. I'd buy it. BTW I know the modder that put the '46 version together in his spare time and although he might be real busy I'll bet he could explain how he did it. skud
  6. Why not both? Maybe we don't mind warping positions (which I do in my Ju 88 all the time already) or happen to have a real radar operator in the backseat in which case the AI chatter would be switched off? How would this be greatly different from your AI gunners now who give you that crucial "He's engaging" just as your wing is being sawed off? We would need some kind of GCI to get us close. skud
  7. These are the original Jumo 004s. They have been modified in key areas using modern materials though. The sound and thrust should be close to original though. The other newly manufactured 262's use GE CJ610s (civilian version of the J85) nestled in a mock-up nacelle. skud
  8. Then he wastes all his ammo spraying away at 800 yards. He should be able to see things, speak and not shoot. skud
  9. It seems gunners cannot see more than 200 meters. They call out "he's engaging" at about 200 meters. I would expect a real gunner to call out a contact at 1KM at least, thus giving you time set the autopilot and man a gun. Now they call out the contact at the same time the attacker opens fire. Seems like it would be a simple update. Thanks skud
  10. Nice! Can you give us a night raid with city lights and searchlights on? skud
  11. Dan Patterson is a photographer and has two books out that feature the cockpit and gunner positions of the 410.I've got he cockpit book and can vouch for the quality of the photos unfortunately it is in storage back in the states https://www.amazon.co.uk/Cockpit-Illustrated-History-Aircraft-Interiors/dp/1550464884 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Gunner-Illustrated-History-Aircraft-Positions/dp/1550463322/ref=pd_sbs_14_t_0/258-7580783-7812130?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1550463322&pd_rd_r=20d92ed2-9715-4572-a431-28e2b0da2f40&pd_rd_w=XpkGr&pd_rd_wg=5SCnj&pf_rd_p=e44592b5-e56d-44c2-a4f9-dbdc09b29395&pf_rd_r=PAH85D73F2QEPHQYHCBC&psc=1&refRID=PAH85D73F2QEPHQYHCBC skud
  12. Well done. Sandstone strata in the cliffs is very convincing👍 skud
