  1. Are they still relentlesly chasing you back home in large numbers?
  2. To my knowledge (and I might be wrong) they don't have blind spots and they see through clouds.
  3. Searching youtube and I can't find any usefull videos about shvak, shkas or ub machine guns. Maybe I'm blind. Any leads? Found mg17 video from forgotten weapons but not on youtube. Would be cool to watch this sort of video about other aircraft guns that we use in the game.
  4. No warning whatsoever. Set my throttle to zero while diving, my guess was either I overcooled the engine or I maxed the throttle too fast when exiting the dive. Killed p40 in that way a few times. Dont know of it applies to I-16
  5. I was flying with technochat on. Had no warning of overheating, all the time engine in normal mode not boosted. And suddenly my prop just stopped turning. That's why I created the thread because it was very strange to me.
  6. It stopped working some time after I exited the dive and was flying level. I just got bamboozled because it never happened to me before. Thought that radial engines were tough, guess I treated it too rough. Will hop to the mig for rest of Moscow
  7. Hi all! Is it possible to blow my engine in I-16 if i give too much throttle too fast? I was playing yesterday on moscow map single player, start of war, flew for about 20 mins and suddenly my engine stops. I remember I was exiting a dive, fighting a 109. Or maybe I overcooled the engine? Is it even possible? It was a long time since i flew ishak and forgot how much should I open the inlet - had it about 50% or so. After that happened i restarted and it happend again after some time. I had no battle damage. Mixture set to auto. Didn't use boost. 90% rpm, 100% throttle.
  8. Thx for the reply, not a problem, more people understand english so it will help others. Don't understand the turbo and rpm lock but will try when Im back home. 15 minutes total so it doesent "regenerate"? Like alcohol in mig21 for radar, if it "drinks" it all you cant use it.
  9. Any tips on flying this magnificent aircraft? Yesterday i set up a fight with F4 on average, 1500 m and couldn't keep up with it. I believe I should fly the P47 as an energy fighter? Was putting too much pressure on the stick (used to yak1-b) and stalling too much. When to use the turbo? Does it work as a boost in other aircraft?
  10. The 7B is too sluggish for me and it overheats more easily😉 Thanks for all the replies it figures I'm not doing so badly after all.
  11. Thanks for nice words but I feel I can do better😉 maybe you are right and I shouldnt be so concerned.
  12. Well if its an accurate shot one burst can kill a fighter. I run out of ammo usually after scoring 4 or 5 kills.
  13. Also have a warthog but using first stage only to fire all guns at once.
  14. I'm flying the yak 1b and loving it. The only thing that I don't like is the little ammo compared to the luftwaffe machies. As now I'm firing both of my guns simultaneously, but is it good practise? Should I rather first use the .50 cal and when its out use the 20 mil? Or maybe the .50 is too weak alone and will require much more shots in order to down a target? Whats your experience in this manner? Looking to conserve ammo and maximise the kill count.
  15. Bought it! How can i look through the sights as the commander? Shift+t doesent work.
