  1. All server admins have to do is make the 262 airfields far back so the pistons get bored. But from my understanding in reading this thread, people are just going to use the 262 to vulch for personal kills rather than help the team. What is everyone worried about if you're going for a 1 way trip in the first place?
  2. More than the Germans vulch already? Allied planes don't even last 20 seconds above German airfields.
  3. Focus on aligning the edge of your propeller with the wingtip of the flight lead and your mind will take care of the rest.
  4. The only one I knew before that was Janes WWII Fighters. The Wiki is outdated to 2008. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IL-2_Sturmovik_(video_game)
  5. Had my go for a few hours in and against the P-47 in Berloga. 1. Wing comes off. 2. Engine on fire. (What are radial engine?) 3. 7mm burst to the wing and the plane spins out of control In the 109 alone, it only takes a short burst to put the P-47 into pieces while it still takes half a belt of 20mm to bring down a Lagg or Yak. This thing should be as sturdy, if not more, than an IL-2. This Brazilian pilot hit a chimney with his P-47 and returned it for crying out loud. Please tell me this isn't final?
  6. Straight out of Wiki: On the evening of that same day, Reschke was to demonstrate that the Ta 152H could be used as a low altitude fighter. A section of four Hawker Tempest Vs of 486 (NZ) Squadron were out on patrol. After attacking a train near Ludwigslust, the section split up into pairs; Wing Commander Brooker ordered the Tempests flown by Flying Officer S. J. Short and Warrant Officer Owen J. Mitchell to make their own way back to base. On the way back, this pair, which was strafing targets along the railway tracks near Ludwigslust, was spotted by lookouts posted at Neustadt-Glewe. Three Ta 152s—flown by Reschke, Oberstleutnant Aufhammer and Oberfeldwebel Sepp Sattler—were scrambled, catching the Tempests by surprise. Reschke recalled:
  7. Bombs - Set your bomb timer to 5 seconds, line up the belly with a 100, do a shallow dive from 2000m, pull up and release when he's right under your nose. You'll be blow/treetop level but that's what makes the IL-2 such an adrenaline rush to fly and you won't miss. Rockets - Single fire is tricky, so start with firing in pairs (one from each wing). Start from 2000m, dive almost straight down on a tank and release your rockets from a steep angle right on top of them. I found this to be 110% more effective than trying to broadside it from a 45 degree angle. Turn this image on it's side, I'm talking about a 20-50 degree slope.
  8. Soooo.... Are they going to surprise us with a massive update... Orrr knowing how Russia runs their internet, a massive Chernobyl explosion happen in their data centers. Because I can believe one, and I can definitely hope to believe the other..
  9. It was up to the pilots. I've read a couple memoirs where P-51 and P-47 pilots stuck with their razorbacks rather than bubble canopy.
  10. The Bodenplatte planes should be separated in their own zone rather than the 1941 planes. The P-40 and 202 can compete with Kuban planes, but the Bodenplatte planes are way over the top. Would also be insanely fun is having a map with that spawns at 6000m during the winter. Good ole contrail ballet.
  11. Eight .50 cals, I cannot wait. Heyyyy, I thought American planes couldn't compete below 15,000ft? The lovely War Thunder myth that spread like wildfire.
  12. I get a kill on a He-111 with a Pe-2, 2nd engine is damaged from flak as we were attacking a train, nurse it home, land perfectly... Shut my engines off feeling satisfied of a good sortie... Ditched. lose a plane. wtf. only my 2nd engine was damaged, did not even produce smoke, yet I lose the pe-2?
