  1. Thing is: The Developer Diary specifically says that the Su-122's HEAT shell can penetrate 120mm of armor, allowing it to take out any German tank. If this does not work now, there is something wrong here for sure.
  2. I have done a practice round with the SU122 against a bunch of AI Tiger tanks - Couldn't damage them, neither with HE nor HEAT rounds even at point-blank range. Shouldn't this work a little better? Only chance I had was against the side armor, but that's what the T-34 can do, too...
  3. I have been experiencing severe performance issues since today's update with FPS dropping down to 15-20 on the Prochorovkha and Rheinland map when using tanks. Never had this before and I have a top notch PC that usually delivers stable 50-60 FPS with 4k when flying and at least 30 FPS when using tanks on the more detailed are in Prokhorovka. Has anyone got similar problems?
  4. Fun fact: If you die in the first mission, no matter how successful you were, the game says " Mission Successful". After some practice, I was finally able to destroy all German armour coming up the hill without taking damage -> Game says "Mission Failed"
  5. So far, I could only find one custom skin for the Dolphin here. Does anyone know if there are any more?
  6. How can you activate the Aldis gunsight on Allied planes in a way that you actually look through it? I cannot find the right button :/
  7. Very nice skins - Great job! Thanks a lot!
  8. Thanks, I had already found the template the first time it was linked here. My question was intended to find out if anyone has seen skins for the T-34 UVZ 1943 uploaded here in this forum or elsewhere. There are quite many for the other thanks, but not for the two most recent ones.
  9. Has anyone noticed any custom skins for the T-34 UVZ 1943 yet? I have looked for them in vain :/
  10. Does anybody know when we will get the templates and/or does anyone have additional skins for the two most recent tanks? Any information would be appreciated.
  11. When looking at the plane customization, the M2.50 only has blue (AP respectively solid) rounds available, while the other .50 cal machine guns (UBS, MG131 and Breda) are loaded with blue and orange (HE or similar) bullets. I know that the M2.50 usually fired Armor-Piercing-Incendiary (API) rounds, which were also modeled in IL-2 1946 as you can see a flash and sparks when the bullets hit their target, but they seen to be absent in Il-2 Great Battles. These rounds would be an important addition to the Bodenplatte module, as most Allied planes in this expansion have the M2.50 as their primary armament. They would also benefit the P-39 and P-40 already in the game.
  12. Very good work Just an idea: Has anyone already tried to make some camouflage skins for the Kv-1s, M4A2 Sherman or the T-34 UVZ 1943? So far I have only seen that on the Axis side. A good inspiration could be the skins from COH 2 or those listed on tank encyclopedia: http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/ww2/soviet/soviet_T34-76.php https://www.coh2.org/topic/27537/all-factions-vehicle-skins-database
  13. Yeah well, that is why I hope that API rounds will get the M2.50 on par with the UBS and so on. Same for me with the Jug, the P-47 really needs some careful handling -> Both joy and hatred :D
  14. Interesting contrast, thanks for your insights. Yes, I have also experienced the cases you described, but at the same time there are these situations where it seems to take dozens of hits to do some proper damage. With the other .50 cal armaments, that seems to be less of a problem to me. In Il-2 1946, I only encountered the issue you described with the Fw190s, the other opponents usually stood no chance. But as you pointed out, there are probably more factors at work here.
