  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. More than the Germans vulch already? Allied planes don't even last 20 seconds above German airfields.
  4. Focus on aligning the edge of your propeller with the wingtip of the flight lead and your mind will take care of the rest.
  5. 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 The Wiki is outdated to 2008.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)
  6. 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?
  7. 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:
  8. 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.
  9. 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..
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. I thought they already had this implemented but I guess it's a bug.
  17. I'm having this problem also. I reset and now I don't have a map option. "O" isn't even bound to anything.
  18. It's 2018 and this problem is driving me nuts. Yes I know, I Ctrl+Alt+Del works after I smash the Win+Tab/Alt-Tab about 10 times but it's getting annoying. Maybe Windows 10 is the culprit.
  19. Not talking about taking off or landing which is where I use them.. This happened more than once but tonight I lost it aside from the fact that it was 30 Germans vs 10 Russians. I dive on a German, he then turns on his navigation lights and how cliche, there's 2 Me-109's diving on me. I bail out because if he wants to use his lights to call in his boyfriends because they can't identify an enemy, I'll play Apples to Oranges and bail out because like hell if I"m going to be their cannonfodder that they didn't even earn. Then there was about 12 virtual Hartmanns saying I was the bad guy because using your navigation lights to identify friendlies is not a dick move. There's some players I know calling me an idiot who had no idea wtf was happening, I'll remember that. In the end if you have to use navigation lights so your wingman can identify an enemy on your 6, in what is supposed to be a flight simulator, along with those who defend those who use navigation lights when an enemy is on their 6 ..... You guys are right, this isn't 1946 where it is a bannable offence, so please defend your point here?
  20. How is this even a topic? Half the time the German pilots think they're fighting a Yak and complain about how it out dove them, flap usaged, or the 109's have paper wings.. We all know the Lagg won the war....
  21. I don't know what it is but he makes me view WWII in a whole new perspective. He really needs nerf.
