  1. may the pfalzocopter never rise again
  2. My experience with the p39 is that it is absolutely superb on the attack and utterly useless on defense. Its more than fast enough to run people down and maneuverable enough to keep on them with an energy advantage, but as soon as you are at a disadvantage it simply isn't fast enough to run away nor maneuverable enough to dogfight them.
  3. i know the germans did some test data at some point with animals inside of a tank, iirc bombs usually left the tank basically fine and killed the crew inside when they were actually effective
  4. if the current .30s are any indication 4 .50s will be the destroyer of worlds
  5. before it went down the flying circus was populated more consistently than any other server its peaks might have been lower than syndicate, but it had a sizable population on it much more often air quake servers were also incredibly popular in il2
  6. HE blows wings up and sets thigns on fire AP kills pilots and breaks engines more or less how it seems to work
  7. the p40 will definitely be interesting i think most simmers will think its bad because they won't bother waiting to reach its respectable top speed due to its absolutely abysmal acceleration itll shine in the hands of a patient player though, it also has excellent diving and good enough turning characteristics
  8. 4000m is excellent altitude for a yak at that kind of altitude you nearly match the 109 in speed going higher isn't much benefit though but your maneuverability advantage is compounded the higher up you go i generally find
  9. planes are far too durable now shooting people just makes them leak things, i've yet to see an engine broken until you've hit them 20 times
  10. i haven't seen any charts, just anecdotal evidence anecdotal evidence is almost completely worthless
  11. [Edited] This kind of post brings nothing to the discussion whatsoever. PM sent.
  12. i think he meant in manuvers a heavier higher wing loading plane isn't going to retain more energy than a lighter one when its gyrating around the sky
  13. mostly you have to win with your ludicrous energy retention within the first moments of the fight or head on
  14. does anyone know if russians increased the supercharger boost like some of the american/british squadrons did?
  15. machine guns in this game seem to do a lot of damage, even shooting a plane down with .30s on either the 109 or the yak isnt terribly difficult
