    3cm MK108: Historical test data vs ingame test data

    Apparently, mostly due to badly made-up belts.

    I cant play anymore!

    Solved. Not broke any more. Strange thing is, I flew DCS and then when I had finished decided to try and launch BoX, and as if by magic BoX started working again. Computers are weird things, LOL. Happy landings, Talisman

    Update 3.010c broke by game

  4. Update 3.010c broke my game. The launcher opens and I click the red bar to PLAY, I then get the message to say it is 'loading please wait', but then the launcher just shuts down after a few seconds and I am left with my PC screen saver to look at Perhaps the next update will sort it out. Talisman P.S. I don't use Steam.

    Rearming and refuelling the aircraft

    So, you are on MP, perhaps on a regular weekly squad night, and you land to RR at a frontal airfield. But wait, you have sustained some battle damage (some holes in the wing or other damage, etc, etc). No RR for you then, LOL, as your plane needs to be repaired mate, so off you go and find something else to do for 12 hours or maybe 24 hours or so, or more. What's that, you are fed up because the squad mates you are flying with did not get any battle damage and all of them take off again after RR for a sortie without you? Shame, never mind, you can re spawn in at the rear airfield you originally took off from and fly on your own for a while. Or you can wait for next weeks squad night to fly with your mates again. Or you and all your squad mates can just spawn in again, without RR, for another sortie together like you always do. How will it be decided how much battle damage is OK to take off with (any or none)? Something else to be coded and modelled for each aircraft perhaps. Voted no to RR. Happy landings, Talisman
  8. Thanks for all your work with the updates Jason and team. Like the new map transparency I very much appreciate your work ethic, passion for combat flight simulation and customer relations. You are a top team! Happy landings, Talisman

    Can a plane fly and manouver without the tail fin?

    Moving on from paragraph 10, above, paragraph 26 of the Spitfire Air Publication also says that rolling is very easy, though the aileron control is extremely heavy at high speed, and may even be done with feet off the pedals, if it is barrelled a little. Happy landings, Talisman

    ability to rearm, refuel, and repair

    Never understood the clamour for RRR and never been a big fan of it when flying on other simulations. Have experienced it on other simulations and MP servers, but consider it the lowest of the low priority issues in my book for this stage of development of IL-2 GB. Lots of more fundamental issues for the developers to spend time and resources on for the time being IMHO. Happy landings, Talisman

    What is your favourite plane

    Hawker Tempest V. Happy landings, Talisman

    Any TWCS users?

    Love my TWCS and would not want anything else at the moment. But, I fly mostly IL-2 Great Battles and sometimes a little DCS, WWII aircraft and Mig-15 only. I don't use ministack and don't find throttle stiction a problem at all. However, if you fly a lot of modern fast jet types with systems to operate you probably want something more expensive than the TWCS. Something with more buttons and options. You cold check out the second hand market for a high end throttle and pick up a bargain. Good luck. Happy landings, Talisman

    KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

    Yes, the FW 190-A5 is rather past it for those scenarios, as well as the Spitfire V with the current in-game engine. Happy landings, Talisman

    KNIGHTS OF THE AIR Multiplayer Server

    On the subject of the Spitfire Mk V, at this time it was obsolete and was hardly used. On an earlier date there were some on the order of battle for D-Day 6th June, but they were mostly reserves for Air Defence Great Britain (ADGB) and used for resting squadrons back in the UK. A small number were used for artillery spotting and one for delivering post I seem to remember reading about. Also, the type of Spitfire we have in this simulation is an earlier representation not representative of the later modifications and engines (also clipped wing) used by the RAF on 6th June 1944 and onwards. The model of Spitfire Mk V, in terms of engine and wing, we have in the sim is on the timeline with the Bf 109F. I humbly suggest that the type of Spitfire Mk V we have in this sim is irrelevant to the above scenarios. Happy landings, Talisman

    Spitfire Mk.XIV poll

    The first production Spitfire XIVs appeared in October 1943. The first squadron to recieve the Mark XIV was No 610 based at Exeter, which re-equipped in January and Febuary 1944. During March 1944 Nos 91 and 322 (Dutch Squdrons also began to re-quip with the Mk XIV. All three squadrons of Spitfire XIVs were fully operatonal.Source for above information: The Spitfire Story, Revised Second Edition by Alfred Price, ISBN 1-85409-305-3 (Foreward to the book is by Jeffrey Quill and the Preface by Dr Gordon Mitchell. Also, there is a combat report recording Spitfires XIV in combat with FW 190 aircraft as early as 7th March 1944 (this was 610 Squadron, see post November 14th above). Later, five squadrons operating with 2nd TAF based in Europe and other Spitfire XIV launched from England operating over the mainland Europe battle space for the BoBP map. Thanks for a great combat flight sim :)) Happy landings, Talisman
