  1. Not doubting anyone assertions in here...I am curious how this battle really turned out...seems there was a lot of disinformation from both sides after this incident. It at least gives a baseline for the P-38 vs Yaks. I only recently discovered this gem of a story. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_battle_over_Niš
  2. Pretty sure SLI will not work in VR. Very few games do because the game has to be written to perform in SLI mode while using VR. This may be old news but last I knew that was how it works.
  3. Agreed, SLI is a must for higher res but the scaling is awesome in this game almost doubled my fps. I am waiting for SLI in V.R. support...pretty sure it wont happen but I can dream.
  4. I was running 2 980ti's in SLI(which made a huge difference) and 6700...I would stay above 60fps for 90-95% of the time. I did notice on the 10 days of Autumn DLC i would get lower fps in those missions but online stayed playable.
  5. I had the same issue with 3 4K monitors...the thing that fixed it for me believe it or not was running the ingame AA at 2X also not sure but I think I was running in windowed fullscreen mode.
  6. Gambit...I am from Ohio(city boy with KY,WV roots), I would be willing to help.
  7. All that's needed is a detailed crew roster...I still have a copy of The Mighty Eight on my hard drive. It was my favorite game for years. I will say one of the most compelling parts of that game was the audio interactions among the crew. When people were hurt you could hear the desperation in their voices. Really gave the missions atmosphere during the long stretchs between takeoff to target. Is what I am trying to say is this is a great idea.
  8. I remember playing a Friday night bomber flight mission where we had a team of panzers assaulting a town held by T34s with a full compliment of air forces fighting right above the tanks(approx 12 tanks and 40 various planes). I was in a German tank and I will say with IL2s hunting us from above you quickly forget about lack of infantry. Also the aa guns were used as anti tank guns to great effect. During the action I was cut away from my team by 3 IL2 who pushed me out into the open. With no hope of escape I was heavily damaged by rockets after 3 to 4 mins. of trying to land a shot and getting close, one of the IL2 made a pass head onto my gun...boom out of the sky. My point of the story is if missions are set up right with a mix of A. I.and human players multi and co-op could be downright exciting. Nothing like knowing that tank has a human inside. Don't get me wrong infantry would be a nice addition down the road but in my opinion not a priority. I would think some type of bunker with "infantry" shooting out will be in game as well as an assortment of anti tank gun teams of various sizes.
  9. look forward to turning into the 262 in my Po2
  10. Force Feedback will rise like a phoenix in your soul when you go V.R.
  11. Sorry it took so long Gambit but just checked back and the last few posts will go nicely with the Air Bridge missions. Germans shuttling troops out en mass in JU 52s and the Russians could rescue downed pilots in the Po2. I wonder if there would be a way to mark a pilot as downed after a real pilot goes down and somehow other pilots in the COOP go to rescue the becon. The downed pilot could wait and call out bad guys for his rescuers or he could respawn and the PO2 could still use the downed craft as a rescue mission. Not sure if that even makes sense or if it could be done with ME? Any way here is a good backround on the Cauldron. Long but good read, I will post others as I dig them up. https://erenow.com/ww/stalingrad/21.html Here is a cool video as well. https://wn.com/pitomnik_airfield Here are some pictures of Field Marshal Paulus as he was surrendering. http://www.allworldwars.com/Paulus-in-Captivity-NKVD-Files.html
  12. EDIT...Merry Christmas to all, and too all a good flight.
  13. If he is over the Sea of Azov, and going down anyway sure a pilot may decide to Taran if he knew he was going to be a sharks dinner no matter what anyway...so there is that. Okay getting nibbled to death by dogfish isnt really that scary but freezing to death in the Sea sure is.
  14. I have 4 kids...bring it
  15. So you may have responded but not really sure? vs the word of a guy who clearly remembered shooting you down nearly 2 years ago. Hmm...again pick one of these statements and stick with it.
  16. O lord...ice one pass on a busy airfield is not vulching. Let me help you chief, if you were following the thread it was brought up to show Robin talks a game of rules and realism and whines when he was realistically killed. So my point for the simple folks is, don't claim to play the game like *real life* then complain when some real life tactics are thunderously brought down upon you from the heavens. So in closing pick one. No you are acting like "Billy bad-a$$" saying you will see people online so I thought I would let you catch a gander of how stupid it sounds.
  17. I'll see you online...O wait.
  18. Sir Robin...you are flailing.
  19. Lol...I have six during that month? I generally fly the 110 so yeah.
  20. Yes sir...I just got done researching this "battle" for months. When I get home Sunday I will follow up with my sources. JU52s shuttling tens of thousands of troops out of "der kessel". It would be amazing I am sure.
  21. BraveSirRobin "I already told the rammer that I’m looking forward to seeing him online. Now I’m just mocking you for making s#!t up." No need to make this up...why else would I remember a kill from years ago? Because you complained, that's why.
  22. Gambit...if we get medical evacuation capabilities we must have Pitomnik Air Bridge missions. Please and thank you.
  23. Okay...well since I was "vulching" maybe this time was an exception for even "gasp" you. You have complained in this thread about your views on ramming for 2 days. Now you want me think you never complain in server chat? The odds are not in your favor. Ramming is a part of the game and "real life". Get on with your life my man.
  24. Robin obviously you replied as far as I remember...even more amazing is your ability to remember my memories more accurate than I do.
  25. So what if I ram someone in a chute who just vulched a smoking bomber? Asking rhetorically for a friend...
