  1. Looks like VikS delivered this for the release of the Spitfire XIV, in terms of 150 rounds per gun, with the latest patch Many thanks VikS and the dev team; brilliant! Happy landings, Talisman
  2. Hopefully others may chime in with more information and knowledge, as I am not so knowledgeable on the subject and just thought I would pass on information I happened to come across. Happy landings, Talisman

  4. Lets get real world about this, there is no aircraft to counter the Me 262 in the conventional sense of air-to-air combat, not the Tempest and not the Spitfire XIV; pilots in the war needed either a lot of luck, a lot of planning, a lot of ground control (intelligence and radar) information, or all three to shoot Me 262 aircraft down. Other than that, multi disciplined special operation's were mounted in a joined up way to try and counter the Me 262 threat. The Spitfire XIV is already clearly slower in level flight than LW late war conventional piston engine types, let alone a LW

  7. Hi Folks, This combat report from 7th March 1944 shows 150 rounds per cannon with 76 rounds S.A.P.I. and 74 rounds H.E.I. per gun for the Spitfire XIV and makes no mention of machine gun loadout. This armament information is near the bottom of the report just above the signatures. http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/610_Harding_7march44.pdf Regarding RAF loadouts, Semi Armoured Piercing Incendiary (S.A.P.I.) and Hight Explosive Incendiary (H.E.I.) for the 20mm Hispano, according to this source: Guns of the Royal Air Force 1939-1945.: Amazon.co.uk: Wallac
  8. Hello Folks, Any tips on how best to use the Tomahawk II in combat in MP, in the desert, would be very gratefully received. I shall soon be flying the Tomahawk in MP and would very much appreciate any tips, particularly beyond the basics, obvious and well know. Perhaps, for example, things like loadout recommendations, guns convergence recommendations, fuel loads, manoeuvring/handling in combat vs opposition aircraft, optimum radiator settings, boost settings and rpm settings for prevailing circumstances, etc. Anything to help give an edge over the Bf 109 Tropical var
  9. Happy Birthday Jason and many happy landings Talisman
  10. Which book, do you have a link? Happy landings, Talisman
  11. I think the damage is done and it is too late. I am a Pimax 5K+ owner and have not had any problems with Pimax, but this issue has put me right off and I shall be looking elsewhere for my next set of VR. Happy landings, Talisman
  12. Plus they don't get to feel the rough end of attacks from 4 engine bombers like the Lancaster and B17; its like Allied 4 engine bombers were the proverbial unicorn, LOL. Not having 4 engine bombers allows for a big, big balance in favour of the Axis. But never mind, Axis can still have Jet bombers and jet fighters. Happy landings, Talisman
  13. Some interesting information on engine detonation and cooling systems, etc, in the video below, plus lots more associated information too: The Secret History of Fighter Aircraft Engine Development in WW2 - YouTube Overall, a 'must see' and extremely informative video for folks interested in WW2 fighter aircraft engines. Hope you enjoy as much as I did. May be useful for the IL-2 developers too, if they have not already seen. Happy landings, Talisman
  14. Folks, Extremely interesting and all historical archive material, enjoy: The Secret History of Fighter Aircraft Engine Development in WW2 - YouTube Happy landings, Talisman
