  1. But the American planes are still spewing that black smoke with auto-rich while in combat mode, it's utterly annoying, they didn't do that in real life. The black smoke from the engine mixture is almost as if the engine is damaged.
  2. In reality the P-47 should be as fast as the Tempest but I stopped flying it because of the damage model. I love the P-51, I have no idea how the developers did not add the blue noses as a default skin. But what's also been unanswered for me, is how the American planes spew this black smoke because of the mixture. The mixture should be automatic like the German planes. I can always spot an American plane miles away now because he's always smoking.
  3. The Tempest should be more comparable to the P-47. http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/p-47/p-47.html http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/tempest/temptest.html But the P-47 isn't performing how it should.
  4. I thought the American planes had automatic mixture? I haven't seen a P-51 or P-47 hadn't had a long black smoke trail behind it. To counter this in other allied aircraft you lower the mixture but with the P-51, it's always there all the way down to idle cutoff. It's really annoying especially when it doesn't seem to happen with German aircraft, who also have automatic mixture.
  5. Russia only gets 2/3 I-16's. Germany gets 3/3 E-7's. How is this still a thing?
  6. I honestly can't wait to see how much payload Wings of Liberty is going to lock on the Tempest and P-38.
  7. I wouldn't get my hopes up for speed even though the air frame was built for speed combined with the packard-merlin. Every recent WWII flight sim likes to believe American fighters were sluggish, only high alt potatoes.
  8. What ever happened to passing/redding out and stall speed? I remember in Beta if to took too steep of a dive in a G-2 or Lagg and pulled out, you'd be blacked out for a solid 30 seconds. I you pushed forward on your stick, you see a bunch of red. If you'd maneuver like an idiot, you'd end up in a flat spin, yes even in a Yak in those days. I can't remember the last time I've seen a flat spin in this game. And while the Luftwaffe pilots go bat sh*t crazy if they see a soviet use their flaps, they're not really concerned about how the are able to do unrealistic snap maneuvers that would blow the pilots eyes from their sockets or would cause a flat spin. Laugh at my aerial gunnery all you want, but it'll be hard to convince me what this 109 pilot was doing was natural flight. There were times we were under 100mph torque did not affect at all, he was still able to jerk around without losing speed, 50 seconds is a good example, idk wtf that fish tail was but if he did that in real life he would have fell like a rock. This is type of crap is the reason I went from flying every day to once a month. https://streamable.com/qpnwq
  9. 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?
  10. More than the Germans vulch already? Allied planes don't even last 20 seconds above German airfields.
  11. Focus on aligning the edge of your propeller with the wingtip of the flight lead and your mind will take care of the rest.
  12. 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)
  13. 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?
  14. 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:
  15. 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.
  16. 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..
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. You separated 1941 aircraft from the rest.. Please separate Bodenplatte aircraft from the rest. For crying out loud, people are flying the G-14's and A-5's to 6000m in a dogfight server because they have to deal with the clipped winged Spitfire (unless they're from the JG clan because they still go to 6000m in the 1941 spawn in a dogfight server)! Please, for the love of God, give Bodenplatte their own spawn area, not 1941!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! P-40 and 202 Meatball shooter, they can compete with Kuban, but Bodenplatte planes are absolutely ridiculous. Since the Bodenplatte planes came out in this server, it's been 100% cancer.
  22. I just want to be able to see aircraft past 10km. That's all I want. Ohhh man if we could only trigger those ammo explosions!
