  1. There are areas on the Stalingrad map that have a very desert like countenance to them... The desert camo Hurri will be right at home here.
  2. No, it's a Ford design, not a T34... Very cool vonNutz. The Ford Model A was introduced in 1928 as the long overdue replacement for the Model T. The Model A would be made for 4 years, 1928 through 1931, and was replaced by the Model B in 1932, which introduced the 221 cubic inch "Flathead V8" to the market. The first popularly priced 8 cylinder engine. Note the last year the A was made. Kinda shows just how out of date the GAZ AA was in the WW2 time period.
  3. As someone that regularly maintains and drives Model A Fords for my customers, the GAZ AA will be an instant buy, as will the German vehicle. The shot of the cab of the GAZ AA is spot on for a Model A or AA Ford. So cool.
  4. Jason lives in Los Vegas, as of the time of this post it's only 5:15am there.
  5. One could hope. A Rolls Royce armoured car... "Fighting deluxe", to quote Lawrence.
  6. It's already in game. It's a part of the "refly" sutra.
  7. And those "mirrors" are actually just highly polished areas on the engine nacelles.
  8. It's not fuel tank damage he is talking about, but rather more realistic fuel handling, switching between tanks, etc.
  9. The textile flight jacket replaced the leather A2, mostly because of cost to produce.
  10. That would mess with the rating system, causing some areas to limit sales, etc...
  11. I'll give it another try. I should have taken a screenshot. Broken planes all over the runway.
  12. Massive crash on runway at start of mission 3. We spawn in and planes are running each other over. Pretty funny really. Guess I'll put running any more on hold till fixes happen next patch time.
  13. Whatever G force changes happen, they HAVE to be the same for everyone. No sense wasting effort on multiple body types, as a "best" type will emerge soon enough, and no one will bother with the poorer choice.
  14. The inclusion of API for the US .50" Browning is long overdue, and a glaring omission in a title that calls itself a simulation.
  15. I see it more as proving the validity of the original design. It won the war you know.
  16. The turboprop conversions have been happening for a long time. They make a lot of sense for someone operating the DC3 for revenue. The gas turbines are FAR less maintenance intensive, and hence less costly, and they have fuel commonality with jet aircraft, and it is just more economical all around.
  17. Well, Bendix did invent the aviation disc brake, as I recall. I do give a nod to Triumph though for the first popularly priced production car with front disc brakes, the Triumph TR-3.
  18. That is just not the experience that I and my friends have had Luke.
  19. I'm sorry Luke, but years of going up against the AI, and seeing them perform maneuvers that would put me in total black out forces me to call BS on this.
  20. I don't mind the current system as it applies to human pilots, but the AI all seem to be G proof supermen. The AI need a really good look at their G tolerance routine, either that or the humans get the super ace G tolerance that they have.
  21. I don't know about how it works today in Europe, but in the US trees directly along the side of the roads are generally removed as the safety hazard that they are. It was not so 40 to 50 years ago and earlier. Trees within a few feet of the roadside were quite normal, especially in the eastern US, and from what I remember in Britain and France. So in areas where forests are common, yes, the trees should be there. On the Russian steppe, I don't think so. Somewhere in Ohio, in the very early days of the motorcar. From a lecture I gave on how the Automobile changed the leisure time habits of the US.
  22. Rjel, if the Ju52 experience is anything to go by, the C47 will not sell in numbers large enough to justify it's conversion to flyable status. In my group of friends, only myself, and BlitzPig Voidcracker have purchased the Ju52. Is a 20 percent buy in enough to make the C47 viable? I doubt it. I hope I am wrong, I really do, but my inner skeptic says it won't happen.
