  1. What do you mean? Don't you like the Ai handling their energy state like a normal person? Or the Ai using all possible angles in a fight? Or that ai quits the fight when dammage occured or the fuel/ammo is low? Or maybe that the ai wingman actually protect the leader? I'm sure you'd prefer the ai turning horizontally at infinity and following you to you base when leaking fuel/oil and coolant at the same time.....
  2. I think the Marketing guys/women tried to avoid the 3 forbidden names in the sim software world, so they had to make a workaround to not pay enormous royalties to the 3 TradeMark-Trolls companies that won't hesitate to send a whole Lawyer Army to 1C offices within the hour, won't write their name here because otherwiser, myself will have to pay for it, but i think you know what companies we are talking about "NORTHTROPiCaL" -- "GRU$$MAN"--"BOING-BOING"
  3. You recall wrongly as the 109E7 was the first operational plane using drop tanks and not, there was no issues with them. And also you're wrong about the 190, nothing to do with bombers (except the R8) but evolution in production and operational needs. The 190 gained 800kg in it's evolution(A1-A9) Keeping it's weight ratio constant at 2.2kg/ps. The spitfire as example gained 1190kg (Mk1-MK14) going from 2.6kg/hp to 1.9kg/hp (numbers with small error marge due to data differences depending on sources) the 190 wasn't the Fat-dog as it represented with the A8, it was a very nimble and agile airplane through all versions, just the roll-rate was slightly increased or decreased depending on the wing guns presence or lack of it... Anyway, droptanks are really needed in the game.
  4. Yes and they will loose the prop and some parts in the process. such speeds are simply instrumental errors, especially in the case of pilot's reports. the best sources are always the factory trials as those test-planes were mostly equipped with special measuring instruments, much more precise than the standard dash-speedometer. at those speeds(500mph+) the prop act as an airbrake, no WWII prop-airplane could even dream to reach those speeds of 600 without any kind of damage.
  5. Great! impatient to see the sand, the sea and a lot of tank battles...from the air
