    Tactical Air War

    A really weird thing happened to my mate Geo in his sortie stats. He had a normal sortie, a bit of combat but he wasn't hit, later on landed normally. Yet in the sortie stats it says his plane was destroyed not even 1 minute after spawning, and the pilot killed. And then when he landed it says he crashed. Really weird bug. http://taw.stg2.de/pilot_sortie.php?id=6056&name=-=PHX=-Geo- Is there a way he can have his previous points restored?

    Tactical Air War

    Thanks for the changes. I have one question about the penalty: Is this if one side has 10 more players spawned than the other side or more than 10 players at all? So for example 11 vs 11 both sides get the penalty? or it has to be 11 vs 22?

    Thoughts on the P39...

    That info isn't correct, The -85 series has a bit less power at low altitude but more power at high altitude: -63: War Emergency Power (60"): 1550 HP Take Off Power (51"): 1325 HP Military Power (42"): 1150 HP 12000 feet crit alt -85: War Emergency Power (57"): 1420 HP Take Off Power (50.5"): 1200 HP Military Power (44.5"): 1125 HP 15500 feet crit alt

    Thoughts on the P39...

    I'm not sure, I think an early N would have the best performance. The N has the same engine as the Q, and the early N had reduced fuel load to reduce weight. The Q variants either increase fuel load, increase armor or even both. And the late Ns (and Qs as well) replace the armored glass headrest with steel armor, so no rear visibility. Though it seems that they were removed as it's a bit hard to find pictures of P-39s with the metal cover, but after a while I could find some:
  5. If they make a Typhoon I hope it's the later variant with four blade propeller and the Tempest tail, or maybe have those features as a mod. I also read somewhere they had armor plates at the side of the cowling, but couldn't find any detailed diagrams of it.

    Thoughts on the P39...

    I suppose it's because it was the most numerous variant in the P-39 squadrons during the initially planned timeframe (from April to June) for BoK campaign. Later on it was decided to extend it up to October... maybe we could have got a K or N if they were to go to October from the beginning.

    Too many Bf 109s in the game?

    The part in which the K-4 isn't that good of a stand in for a G-14/AS or G-10 is in low altitude performance. Their high alt performance is at a compromise for low altitude speed. With the K-4 you can be fairly safe to run away if the fight ends up at the deck, or catching a fleeing opponent, as long as it isn't a Tempest or a high boost P-51. So it tickes all the boxes unlike the more common G-14/AS in which you would have to be careful to pick your fights and stay mostly at mid to high altitude.

    Hype about ME262

    A good video from Military History Visualized about the Me 262 development. It wasn't really delayed, but more like rushed into service. As for how slowed down by bombs it would be. What are the exact numbers? Because for a plane that makes around 800 km/h at sea level, if its dragged down to 700 km/h it would still be pretty hard to intercept.

    Developer Diary 215 - Discussion

    The extra plates would be cool to have. That being said they were only 25/38mm thick so they don't really increase the armor protection that much. Also ironically the side armor ones are just behind the ammo storage zones, so they really work as bullseyes for the enemy gunners in order to achieve an ammunition explosion 😅

    Li-2/C-47

    They could make the DB-3F that was very similar to the IL-4. IIRC you could implement the main changes via modifications to convert it to IL-4.

    P-47D Level Speed

    Thanks JtD, so for the particular case in game (6250 Kg at 18.7 m/s down to 5500 Kg at 2600 HP) what should be the estimated improvement? 2 or 3 m/s improvement instead of 4 ?

    Smaller 1 Nation Modules

    I agree, this can be a nice way to fill gaps.

    P-47D Level Speed

    Well Sheriff slowest P-47 test was a bit heavier than the standard one, as it had 100 liters more of fuel and extra ammo. Making it weight around 6250 Kg (standard would be 6000 Kg), the lightest configuration weights 5503 Kg. So it's a ~750 Kg reduction, making it go from ~18.7 m/s to ~23 m/s, a 4.3 m/s difference. The relation is still higher than in the P-47 N/M comparison though.

    What planes have boost

    Yeah, makes it go up to 1.5 ata, useful for take off. With a bit of flaps and manual pitch to have 3000 RPM it can get in the air rather quickly when fully loaded.

    P-47D Level Speed

    The one for reference would be the P-47 with half fuel (700 liters) and standard ammo load. Removing four guns and loading 400L fuel is around 500 Kg of weight reduction from that configuration. I think the G-14 was also tested at half fuel.
