    Historical planeset for TAW

    Thats why I checked units operating at Ostfront in 1941 and early 1942. I strongly recomend to it, so we will be on the same page. No need to guess that we dont need total F-4 numbers on every battle area

    Historical planeset for TAW

    Good question! Logic is the answer, ie. We have Yak-1 s69 with PF engine. We can use the plan on early maps to keep balance, but we need to decrease the speed for 1941 maps We have 109 F-4 1.42 ata which was available after producent publication in November-December 1941. We need to decrease the speed for 1941 maps We have 1 version for Ju87. We can limit the loadout to keep historical accuracy and use this plane for early 1941 maps. We have La-5. Cool, lets use it in late 1942 maps. But we need to keep that plane in service and later use M-82F engine as a La-5 F only after April-May 1943. No. First squadrons were equiped at autumn 1941 in 109 F-4. 763 F-4s were produced from May till Dec 1941. Split it for western & eastern front ( another 576 F-4 trop, 544 F-4Z and 240 F-4 R/1 were produced in 1942 ). Count that 2 factories were producing those planes. Lets say 50/50. It means 380 planes for 8 months. Count some delay between production and operational use. So. Yes. F-4s were in autumn 1941 at front line but not in big numbers. About F version. For 22 LW gruppen 14 had Friedriech ( mostly F-2 with 15mm ) 7 had Emils, in use ( mixed E + F) in June 1941. 109 F-4 1.32 ata started operational service since autumn 1941. ( historical fact about F-4, only 4-5 planes were equiped in gunpods 20mm in 1942, tested in Rechlin May 1942 and then were sent for combat tests in JG52 since June 1942) Of course similar story with 23 mm cannon for LaGG-3. No it was not common. Around 10-15% of planes were equiped with this cannon. And I have plenty more interesting facts Also some interesting planeset logic change is in plans, stay tuned!

    Historical planeset for TAW

    Dear TAWoholics! Main idea of this project is to create a realistic simulation of WWII conflict from the pilot perspective. We want to make you feel happy about success, stressed about the mission, worried about your virtual life. We want to let you feel scared when making risky task and sad after loosing life. We want to motivate you to follow the orders and care about the planes as the military pilots do. Tactical Air War is frustrating. It`s hard. It`s annoying. It`s a pure joy and happiness when you achieved your goals and finished a mission. If it would be easy you wouldnt enjoy it as much as you enjoy now. Present TAW season is about to end. With all the LG members we do the best to make every season better. We have few new ideas, but first of all we would like to know what you think about historical accuracy. [edited] By historical acccuracy we also understand keeping speed, arnament limitations & keeping logical and fair quantity of planes. So please leave your votes.

    LaGG-3 variants

    @ShamrockOneFive Thx for reply! Well, what I`v found is they suppose to load 23 mm to every IL-2 since the begin, but this gun production was probably limited in 1940-1941. Also there was a great mess because of the factories evacuation. So thats why it was so randomized... Anyways looks like 20mm was a basic & most common loadout. In total 10-15% of Laggs could be produced with 23mm after 1942-1943, when Vya-23 production increased Sources show: 1942 — 13,420 1943 — 16,430 1944 — 22,820 1945 — 873 1946 — 2,002 1947 — 1,247 But still Il-2s were priority because of the Stalin order. Even MiG-3 production was terminated at some point because those AM-38 engines were needed for IL-2`s Never found any info about 23mm in series 8 ( maybe except some testing aircraft )

    LaGG-3 variants

    Hello guys, I`v found information how many planes were equiped with 37mm, but can`t find the numbers for 23 mm cannon. There is only marginal info that, some of them were equiped with Wja-23mm cannon. Can you support me ? As an example I`v found some data about LaGGs produced in factory nr 21, anyways it seems, that LaGG -3 with 23mm versions was around 10-15 % of total production. And when IL-2s were started to be equiped with 23 mm cannons ( and around which month of 1944 with 37mm ) ? @Brano @ACG_Kai_Lae @ShamrockOneFive @CrazyDuck @Bilbo_Baggins
