  1. I don't think so because laptop RTX 2060 version is not same as normal RTX 2060...

     

    For information, mobile RTX 2080 is equivalent to normal GTX 1070 and the normal 1070 is the minimum to play VR with good condition on a normal computer

    Your mobile RTX 2060 is just slightly better than GTX 1060 6gb

     

     

    I'm ordering a laptop myself those days and i choosed a laptop with RTX 2080 because you can upgrade memory but not the graphic chip

    I am not saying a P-38 could turn with a ki-43, but mcguire died because he failed to jettison his tanks.

    McGuire didn't fail to jettison tanks, he just didn't. Who knows if he tried ?

    But jettisonning tanks meant to go back home earlier and less chance to engage more enemy and he was on a race with Bong so he ordered other pilots to don't do so without orders from him.


  3. Did i compare sim to real pilots ?

    What is true in WW2 remain somewhat true in our sim...

    Real pilots fear for their life and don't have do overs.

    Of course they can. When P-38 appearead in the Solomons in Feb 43, their pilots started to turn, losing few of them against Zeros before learning how to use better tactics...

    McGuire died because he tried to engage a lonely Ki-43 in a turnfight. Need more ?

    Hello chaps, 

    im new to the sim, and pretty interested to master the P-38 in dogfight.

    i know for a fact that the plane in the hands of good pilots could be very effective, as it allowed many aces to be born.

     

    The P-38 allowed many aces to be born... in the Pacific and not in Europe

    and they didn't turn there for sure, using mostly their extra speed advantage over japanese fighters

     

    When McGuire (38 victories) and Rittmayer (12 v) met a plane as fast as them (the Ki-84), they died in the ensuing engagement. I think it was probably the first time they met the Ki-84 btw

     

    On the Western front, it was easy target with his size because he was not faster than german fighters and as a result was withdrawn of fighter role before the end of war because it could not compete with lastest german designs.

    In Europe, their most precious sucess was probably the death of german ace Walter Oesau in a 109 G6/AS on May 11th of 1944.

    He fought 4 Lightning for 10 mn alone from high to treetop before being killed.

    Otherwise P-38 pilots over ETO never had a bigger tally than P-47 and P-51 of course and was never much feared by LW pilots.

     

     

     

    In game the P-38J we have as nothing to do with the Il2 1946 surpringsly

    It turns in 20 seconds in BoS

    when it did

    in 26,01 sec for P-38J

    in 27,27 sec for P-38L

    in 25,75 sec for P-38 L late in 1946.

    (Il2 compare date for 4.11)

     

    Same with rate of climb with a maximum of 16,3 m/s in 1946 compared to the 20 m/s in BoS.

     

     

    All of this allows the current P-38 to outurn all era axis fighters which i found quite unrealistic. Seems it was more realistic in 1946 honestly 😕

    Sure the P-38 was turning great but for a twin-engined fighter only and it should not be able to outurn a late 109 for very long time because it is more twice more heavier, simple as that.

    That’s a very strange thing.

    Are you wearing a hockey helmet?

     

    Only a VR one xD

     

    More seriously, if there is a increased rear view ability, this one is marginal


  6. Does the Bubble canopy brings more protection for the pilot ?

    I mean the headrest which is way much bigger than the one on Anton series which is thinner...

     

    Because the plane is 1 km/h faster with the default canopy

     

    Thanks

     


  7. You turn crazy when you see a 262 doing crazy things hoping you can give him a burst...

     

    Result : catched by a K4

     

    Looks like there was 2 Me-262 according your track ?

    Could be quite different experience to fly with someone like Hans-Joachim Marseille (stay out of my way, while I shoot down my enemies)

     

    Marseille didn't need to say that lol

    He was the proud of his squadron and comrades were fine to let him shoot at any opponent

    because he had exceptionnal aim and used very few rounds to down an aicraft in any position and everyone knew it.

     

    Inflicting the first loss between two groups who meet in combat gives a big advantage for the final battle result.

    I was straffed on the ground less than a minute of spawning into my plane while my engines were not running by =VARP=Tvrdi

    image.thumb.png.3a25edde918cb890efddf251d308908f.png if you look at the time stamps on this you will see I spawn in and then die like within seconds....

     

    Quite funny to see that you can report what you do yourself teufelhunden...

     

    On Oct.6, you killed me on the ground after that i landed a heavily damaged 262 resulting in losing a precious aircraft

     Of course no one would get their super planes so it might not be very popular.

     

    It will. Flying P-38 or P-47 is just crazy as of now with K4 1.98 ata around.

     

     

    I'm not very aware of 150 octane service use

    Did all the allied planes really had it from march 44 ?


  11. Combat Box is good server but may i suggest to make some Summer 44 scenario because with all Bodenplatte planes available, everyone takes K4, Mustang and Tempest with boost...

     

    It starts to be a bit redundant/repetitive.

     

     

     

    Suggested Summer 44 Fighters Planeset :

    - 190 A8

    - 109 G14

    - P-47

    - P-38

    - P-51 (without 150 octane fuel)

    - Spit IXe (without 150 octane fuel)

    - Tempest (without 11 lbs boost)

     

     

    Suggested 1945 Fighters Planeset :

    - Me 262

    - 190 D9 + A8

    - 109 K4 + G14

    - P-47

    - P-38

    - P-51 (with 150 octane fuel)

    - Spit IXe (with 150 octane fuel)

    - Tempest (with 11 lbs boost)

    What server was this on? What trim settings were you using?

    I get the feeling this happens a lot more on combat box than on other servers for some reason (maybe the weather settings make this more likely...)

     

    It was on Combat Box. The map is Battle for Eindhoven.

    WoL and Kota doesn't use yet the new map.

     

    Can't remember my trim setting

    Great video.

    262 can dominate the skies if you give 1 for each pilot on the blue side. But if you limited the quantity that will be more fun

     

    I don't think so. Most of pilots cannot master this plane and will turn far too much in order to get a victory turning them into easy meat.
