    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    πŸ˜‰ But why? Don't you think, that this PTO scenario will attract new player groups, which have not been present here until now? I think, PTO will exactly do this and that can only be good for revenues (hopefully) and for the growing player base, of course.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    Exactly my thoughts. πŸ‘ŒπŸ» The only difference is, that I am waiting for the Me 262 and not for the P 51. πŸ˜‚ But nevertheless, you are right!
  3. Due to the fact, that the PTO ist probably a bigger project, I am willing to accept compromises easily. If plane models are based on best assumptions in the beginning, it is totally acceptable. Flight models can be adjusted step by step. As long we are seeing ships, islands and and interessting plane set, I am very patient.

    Where to after BoBP

    I think, it is necessary for the sim to be developed further in order to attract new members. This cannot be achive by Korea or the x installment based on the Estern Front. The PTO has everything we need. New components, as ships, torpedo bombers and. a new landscape with green islands in a blue ocean. New kinds of weather and navigation needs to find carriers in sunset times. Maybe a great deal of work, but maybe the most rewarding, too.

    Lotfe 7 (and russian counterparts)

    Hello F/JG300_Gruber thanks for the link to the documentation. Another good source is the "Luftfahrt Archiv Hafner". There you can find the "D. (Luft) T.7002" - document for Lotfe and BZG 2. From this, I thought, that Lotfe 7C is modelled (nearly) in CoD. This picture of the bombardiers station (left) is much more immersive than the Il2 sturmovik station. The reason, why I am missing it. On the right, the real thing. But maybe in the future .....

    Lotfe 7 (and russian counterparts)

    Hello dingsda! I wasn't aware, that it is a yearly topic. πŸ˜‚ But nevertheless, sometimes it may be worthwhile to remember the old "Moebelwagen", too. πŸ˜‰

    Lotfe 7 (and russian counterparts)

    So true. While differences between the Bf 109, model E, F, G, there weaponry, superchargers, ... are discussed in length (not criitizising this), a fundamental part, als the Lotfe is missing. Hopefully we will see some love for the bomber details, too. πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»O
  8. Years ago, when Il2 was very new and I saw it in comparison to CoD, where I flew mostly He 111, I found the bombsight to be a step back. I that time the devs were not interessted in doing it similar to CoD. Is the number of pilots, being in favor of a Lotfe 7 really so small ? I am really missing it. 😞

    Radars or the lack of it...

    Hello Gambit21, where can I set the frequency of the NDB? And in the PATIN-instrument I have to choose this number. How is this done? (I know, how it was done in CloD) Thanks for an answer.

    Radars or the lack of it...

    Thanks, Gambit21! Being here after a longer period of inactivity, I am glad to hear this. Is there a written dokumentation about this? And where? Frequencies, usage in the instruments of the He 111 (my favorite) , and so on ... Thanks again. πŸ˜ƒ

    Radars or the lack of it...

    I think, it is unlikely, that we will see any kind of electronic warfare in the sim, but its a pity, very true. - Airborne radars for night fighters - Guiding systems for the approach to enemy formations - Landing systems for finding runways in the dark Maybe, all these are to complicated / cost intensiv to implement, but I would pay an upcharge, only to have the possibility to learn these technologies in the aircrafts. πŸ˜ƒ

    Radars or the lack of it...

    I had hopes, that sometimes a flightsim would go into the details of radar, because its WW2. We have "nightfighters" in the game, but they are not "real", because the core is missing. The German FuG 202 /FuG 220 Lichtenstein airborne radars for the BF 110 or the Ju 88 would be a dream (and their allied counterparts, of course). Years ago, some enthusiasts used Il2 1946 for a try, but the project was not finishes, unfortunately. Maybe the number of interested people in this community is to small, to implement this, but it is still a very interesting aspect.

    Me 262 Questions

    Of course, right. But nevertheless interesting for its design and performance.

    Me 262 Questions

    I know, that it was not used in Bodenplatte, but an interesting collector plane for me would be the Do 335 as the fastest piston fighter of its time (775 km/h accordingly to Wikipedia). And it fits into the timeframe.

    Does IL-2 GB need to return to the Eastern Front?

    I would be glad, if the Pacific would be chosen for the next scenarios. Probably it would attract new players and e. g. Guadalcanal has nearly everything you need for a new experience. From fleet operations with CV and BB to air operations with long range bombers and fighters, the main ingrediences for an exiting new install are there. Please add a new aspect then: the needed navigation tools to fly over the vast areas of ocean. Interesting aspect, too.
