  1. @=FB=VikS: there's some really good info in this topic about the rocket rail arrangement on the FB VIs of Coastal Command: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235077203-question-on-mosquito-paint-scheme
  2. In the fall of 1944, at the least, the Stabschwarm would go up as part of the larger Gruppe / Geschwader formation. There is one notable incident from this time where US military personnel, as they were eavesdropping on Luftwaffe radio traffic one day, listened to Josef Priller - by then commander of JG 26 - curse out the pilots of the subordinate JG 26 Gruppen as they struggled to form up properly for a bomber intercept mission.
  3. Source? Not so - it uses the same G-model as the player (we've gone around and around on this, both here and in the beta testing forum. I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but you are misinformed). Not really - they're subject to the same laws of physics as the player. Again, not so. Altitudes higher than 2000 meters can and are generated.
  4. Not quite sure what you are getting at here, since wartime firing tables for all these weapons - whether WWI or WWII - exist in one form or another. It's not like we have to go out to the Mojave desert to find out what sort of dispersion a Vickers MG has - I have mountains of those tests on my computer.
  5. I'm not exactly sure what my involvement at Subsim.com or ROF cockpit views has to do with the question here, so what exactly about my response above was out of line? No, there has never been a downscaled map of Rhineland made, and nothing has ever been said that they plan to do so.
  6. And of course it was escorting B-29s all the way up to V-J Day in August 1945 in the form of the P-47N. From what I've read, that version was very, very impressive.
  7. ...in late 1944-45, over Western Europe and the Med, sure. But, you're leaving out a lot of other time periods, theaters, and roles where it excelled quite well in the air-to-air role.
  8. It goes back to the way things were coded when the Hs 129 was built. Sure, but it's still ultimately a half-solution that doesn't really solve the problem.
  9. No - Soviet careers end with Kuban right now. Besides, Normandie Niemen doesn't exist in career mode right now.
  10. Yes, it had a weapon selector switch between Group 1 and Group 2, and also for all guns.
  11. That can't be a stock career issue, because there are no Yak-1s there.
  12. But that's not the way the firing groups were ordered on the Hs 129. It had two firing groups - one for the gunpod and another for the fuselage guns. So, moving the gunpod to weapon group 3 wouldn't solve anything.
