  1. yep but Pe-2 is very fast and uber strong. German fighters has very weak engines also i think that Pe-2 has more than it's chance even with reduced bombload...
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. No one for the 6 x MG151/20 loadout ? or the 2xMk103 + 2xMk108 loadout ?
  5. 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)
  6. Yep like engine and pilot... but in case of Pe-2, engines and cockpit seems heavily armored which i understand for an Il-2 but not for a Pe-2
  7. 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
  8. I think something is wrong on D-Day map. Allies side cannot capture Bagerovo airfield. I played the map several times and only Zamorsk is captured...
  9. Great as usual ! Which month for the Bodenplatte map release ?
  10. This rocket was put on April 12th to remind Gagarin flight on April 12th of 1961, isn't it obvious ?
  11. This server fills a lack of overall late war scenario which is welcome howewer when i tried it last night, i found out sadly i got lower fps with 30 players on the server than on WoL or KOTA when full... There is too much AAA with tracers (which takes a lot of "power"). Too much little caliber which seriously affect flight pleasure near AF and objectives.
  12. i think he tried a Ta-152C previous week, this is why^^
  13. 6 Peshka destroyed in air to air with the Zerstörer 8 in Macchi including 3 Bostons. Used all ammo tough 32% of accuracy over 10 planes hit with the Würger
  14. Tried yesterday on WoL and it wasn't a pleasant experience unfortunately I have VR with OC GTX 1070 card and i didn't have good fps even after decreasing from Ultra to High. Flying over Belgorod railway station was just impossible
  15. Who speaks about 262 ? On such map, you will find A8, F8 and G14... Thanks for the new map on Prokhorovka. Unfortunately, this map is hardly playable for VR users even after decreasing quality from ultra to high. (GTX 1070 Oc) Fighting over Belgorod railway station was simply impossible and near too for example
  16. Hi DenLarik, Do you expect to make western front maps as well when Bodenplatte map will be released or the server is eastern front orientated ? I know there is no maps for eastern front 44-45 right now but is there any chance to see more oftenly scenario of this time ? I know there isn't all VVS plane of that era (however Yak-3 and La-7 were only 20% of all the VVS fighters) Also La-5FN is faster than D9 in winter. Add the rack if needed but it would be nice to see some maps with F8, D9 and K4... example : Note that on Stalingrad map, you can delete all town & village names or replace them to make it more "realistic" (this is the only map which allow this) Also, i don't understand why headrest is always locked on 110 G-2 ? it kills all the pleasure to fly this plane...
  17. No it isn't. As a proof of what i'm saying, i will just show u my best mission online with 340 rounds of 20mm in the La-5, i can destroy up to 12 axis planes online... with the 190 which has exactly twice more rounds of 20mm (680 shells), i was never able to destroy more than 10 allies plane (and i dont speak about light mg) My accuracy was almost the same in both case : 21-22% You basically need twice less shells to down a german plane than a soviet one.
  18. Sympa comme tout ! Putain, je savais pas qu'un B2, c'etait aussi énorme. Le F15 est tout petit à côté (à 6'50) xD
  19. With 3250 rpm and only 1.38 ata at sea level on winter maps, there shouldn't be any time restriction right ? I made the test. The engine didn't broke after the usual 10-15 min of MW50 but there was the message after 30 min that the combat mode was over and the engine was therefore damaged after 35 min To CountZero : Open the cowl flaps at 100% in winter at sea level and check speed results / radiator visually. The plane is faster xD
  20. Very interesting. Indeed, the engine gives around 1.38 ata on winter maps at sea level... however how do u explain that it climbs to 1.5 and even 1.7 ata when climbing as the temperature is still cold on those winter maps ?
  21. La-5 (ShVak), Il-2 and LaGG-3 (Vya-23) allows to choose between AP and HE rounds... I would like to know if the russian pilots of those planes really had the choice between AP (orange) and HE (blue) rounds like in the game? Thanks
  22. yes and this is really missing in the D9 specification text...
  23. From Wikipedia... xD The Pe-2 regiments' operations were not always successful and the service pilots complained about insufficient defensive armament and survivability: there was a great risk of fire and insufficient armour protection, especially for the navigators and gunners. German pilots soon discovered the limited sighting angles of the ventral gun mounting and its poor reliability. The Ammunition belt of the UBT machine-gun often jammed after the first burst of fire when shooting in extreme positions. The navigator and the radio operator were poorly protected. On average, ten Pe-2 gunners were wounded for every pilot, and two or three were killed for the loss of one pilot. Throughout 1942 the design was steadily refined and improved, in direct consultation with pilots who were actually flying them in combat. Improved armour protection and a fifth ShKAS machine-gun was installed and fuel tanks modified. Despite anecdotal reports by Soviet fliers, Pe-2s were a daylight bomber, often crewed by comparative novices in the early years of the war, and took significant losses, even when well protected by fighters.
  24. http://il2stat.aviaskins.com:8008/fr/sortie/log/4062419/?tour=44 CIA-Elanski : Poor mentality player After hitting me, i got him and he did disco to avoid being killed when bailing out too low... Yeah, you can be number 1 in ranking with such trick
