  1. it's not about having an opinion on it. The sources clearly suggest that an extremely quick assembly change was feasible. And that wasn't a coincidence, it was planned exactly from the first step of development. Of course, the time required to change the engine depends on the frame conditions. And the 12 minutes should only present what is feasible and were not the rule on a field airfield.
  2. An english aviation magazine also reports on an engine change on a JU 90 that took 30 minutes from landing to take-off. The exchange of complete assemblies was extremely popular and widespread among the Germans at the time. The same applies to submarines, Kübelwagen and the BR 52 war locomotive. There is an instruction in a manual for changing the engine. This shows that really only a few steps were necessary. A central point of the ME 109 must be the chassis and the fire protection wall. all cables and power connections were more or less pluggable and color-coded. Due to the landing gear, it
  3. thank you very much for this @Aurora_Stealth!
  4. i would also like to find that source again. I will let you know, when i found. I read it years ago. I try to tell the story as best I can from memory. In the late thirties, an American pilot (or other aircraft specialist) must have been given the opportunity to view an ME 109 and get information about it. Back in the States, he is said to have said in a general manner: Dress warmly. The Krauts have a fighter where they are able to replace the engine in 12 minutes. But even if the 12 minutes are an exaggeration. The reason for the closely spaced chassis was the fact that the engine
  5. There are certainly many good reasons in favor of one or the other aircraft. The actual performance in the air and in combat is certainly a decisive factor. But there are so many other reasons as well. When the ME 109 was developed, it was certainly one of the best fighters of the time in terms of performance. It was full of innovations. Above all, the powerful injection motor with the maintenance-friendly upside down installation. But above all, it was designed so that it could be built in large numbers in a wide variety of locations on relativ low
  6. Bei IL2 ist es ganz klar das eigentliche gameplay, womit es bei mir gewinnt. Karriere und Kampagnen. Nicht perfekt aber deutlich besser als bei z.B. DCS, welches wohl ausschließlich für online-multiplayer interessant sein kann. Sehr enttäuscht war ich von der Bodenplatte. Eine so lieblos, leblos und langweilig dahergeklatschte Landschaft.... Wie gesagt: Wenn es für CloD inkl. desert wings tatsächlich zu einer VR-Unterstützung kommt, wird mich dieser Titel haben - da bin ich mir ziemlich sicher.
  7. Nachtrag: Habe gerade etwas im englischen Forum herumgestöbert und dabei erfahren, dass eine VR-Unterstützung von CloD zumindest angedacht ist....das wär echt ein Ding für mich. Ich denke mit Tobruk zusammen ist das nämlich schon ein sehr interessanter Titel.
  8. Für mich ist die VR-Unterstützung ausschlaggebend. CloD habe ich daher nur ganz kurz angespielt. Thematisch - jetzt sogar noch mit Afrika - finde ich CloD sehr reizvoll. Subjektiv finde ich auch die südenglische Landschaft grafisch besser umgesetzt, als alle IL2 GB-Titel.
  9. You developed this campaign in your spare time and are making it available to the IL2 community for free. You don't have to apologize, we have to say thank you. You're right, the campaign is really, really good, and I'm really enjoying it. But sometimes there are small technical problems or, as with me, problems in recognizing or achieving the mission goal. I don't know if Mission 14 is really a problem. I also had big problems with Mission 4 in the beginning, but in the end I passed it. The fault was mine, not yours. Speaking of which: Mission 4 als
  10. Hallo, ich heiße Jörg, Baujahr 71 und lebe am östlichen Rand des Ruhrgebietes, eigentlich schon eher Sauerland (alte Gau-Bezeichnung Westfalen Süd). Ich interessiere mich, seit ich mich erinnern kann für die Kampffliegerei, speziell für die des 2. Weltkrieges. Mit Anschaffung des ersten PCs ca. 1991 eröffnete sich für mich die Welt der Flugsimulationen. Aces over Europe war mein damaliger Favorit. Nach einer langen Pause, bin ich vor nun ca. einem Jahr wieder in die Computerfliegerei eingestiegen. Damals meldete ich mich auch hier im Forum an. Da ich ein recht ausgefülltes "Echtleben
  11. Ja, hatte ich auch. wenn ich im Spiel in die Tatstaturbelegung gehe und einstelle, was bereits eingestellt ist, geht es wieder. Daher habe ich dem ganzen nicht übermäßig Beachtung geschenkt.
  12. Hi madcop, no, i couldn´t finish the campaign yet. At the moment i stick in misson 14. I don´t know, what i have to do to finish succesfully. In full real, i´m able to shoot down 4 to 6 IL2. Don´t know what about the tanks near the stopped train. Do i have to destroy a few of them? It seems to be impossible with only MG151. I return to pitomnik, when i´m out of ammo and out of fuel. same here. fps went down to 1 -3! When i still stayd in the mission, later i could finish. What you tell about mission 19 seems to be a problem maybe with different versions or a missing mod, you
  13. Thanks Marvel, same here. My first mail to jazz was via google tl, translated into russian. His answer was in eglish. No problems. But i will have to be patient. Don´t know, when he ist able to deliver. But i´m also waiting for my throttle box, ordered by gvl in ukraina. In the meantime i can construct a cockpit...🙂 bye, Jörg
  14. ...ja, auf jeden Fall. Aber auch beim Anfliegen von Bodenzielen oder im Luftkampf ist es höchst nervig, wenn plötlich irgendwelche Bedienelemente verrutschen. Bei mir sind es gerne mal die Ruder. Ebenso ist es jedes mal ein Kampf, wieder die richtige Sitzposition in Relation zu den Rudern zu bekommen.
