  1. 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.

  4. The 262 has a weakness with tail.

    You can lose it without combat damage or G's


    I broke many of them and i never hear anything when it happens...

    I realize it only when looking behind.


    Here is an example how it can happen.


    Speed was fast but normal for the 262. Pilot and plane wasn't under high G's as everyone can see with pictures



    The track can be downloaded here.

    It happens at the very beginning after 20 seconds





    1- I get close of the P-51 but i cannot aim it properly



    2- I overpass it on the right




    3- Watching behind at him, we can see, i lost the tail




    4- Half second before losing tail



    5- The Tail has gone

     This suggests that several players do not perform in any way the role of attacker

    A lot of us play online to meet other players and not to destroy AI ground stuff


    Well done.


    I think you can do even better next time.

    You were spotted before being in the forest and players started to crash on you because very few has the ability to destroy tanks in a correct way


    If you had reach the forest first, hiding in it with little moves inside, it would have take much longer for all of them to realize the threat and start target you

    but i remenber pokemon was doing it in pe2 one month and it was not as effective as it was in ju88 so he went back to ju88s, best he did in pe2 was 6 destroyed on spawn, in ju88 15, so thats why you see this more on axis side then on vvs. 





    This is just because of loadout i guess. Pe-2 takes less than 50% of Ju-88 loadout.

    You need 500 kg bomb for doing so and Pe-2 can take only 2...


    Considering this, 6 is a very good result

    On another hand, it climbs much faster and can defend itself much better


  7. Spawn base are never objectives in briefing in WoL however it is possible to win the map by destroying enough enemy planes therefore this tactic is valid


    Your links shows Ju-88 pilot count0. Do you know someone doing so with Pe-2 ?


    Scharfi probably holds a record but it wasn't a level bombing

  8. i expect Bodenplatte map and late western front planes to boost MP attendance more than anything else...


    For that however, the Bodenplatte map must be perfectly optimized unlike the new Prokorovkha map which is just not pleasant to fly over (too low fps especially in VR even after lowering graphics)

  9. Obvious to few but not to the majority therefore i'm sharing this tip on how to down a Pe-2...


    This plane as everyone knows is a hell to shoot down. Strong and very fast combined with hum... AI gunners

    I consider myself that everytime, a russian side player takes a Pe-2, you can delete one german fighter because it takes more than one fighter on average to down the Peshka.


    The weak point of those two planes is THE TAIL.

    You just need to destroy 2 of the orange parts in the image below to shoot down it.


    FEW HITS is needed of course and if you succeed, you will know it immediately because you will notice the missing parts and the Pe-2 will start a 45° degree dive straight to the ground.

    If you don't manage to down the Pe-2 in one pass, keep trying as this part get weaker every time and doesn't sustain a lot of damage unlike wings.




    As everyone knows, this plane can sustain huge damage if you hit a bit everywhere therefore it is essential to focus on something especially with few guys in comms

    I tried to hit on one engine, then cockpit but the best results were achieved when focusing on tail.


    Unless you kill the pilot which is harder (much smaller zone to aim), this is the best way because if you light fire, it still can fly one minute and drop his bombs if over targets


    Note that you won't hit the tail part from straight behind as needed because you need some angle to clearly see the stabilizer surface when firing.

    The more angle you have, the better it is


    For this reason, you may not be able sometime to hit this part if the Pe-2 is flying too low as you can't go under him


    Also, the best moment to attack a Pe-2 already bombing is right after his drop when it turns for a second pass and show itself his tail to you.

    On this moment, the AI gunner isn't efficient as usual but for very few seconds.




    While slower and somewhat easier to down, it works as well with the Il-2 and is essential to use if you have only one cannon (like the 15mm on 109 F2)


    For training, i suggest to practice with Il-2 model 1941 or 1942 without gunner but without shooting from right behind as you won't be able to do so when there will be a rear gunner
