  1. Brief description FW190D9 career not really ending... BoBP Detailed description I was about to fly my final mission in this career, April 1st 1945, and this is what I got... All personal and squadron data were lost, except for medals and awards (before April 1st) Headquarter (3rd) screenshot suggests that I ended the career ("show battle results" tab... btw I have access to the closure video), but the 4th screenshot indicates that the career is still in progress (Nowotny). Can't trace back any pilot info, unit hq info, etc., whatever the day. I only have access to
  2. Thanks for your answer. This I know and can understand... But 8 or 9 out of 10 is not 40 out of 40.... In any case, the main issue remains the fact that you always encounter the same E/A, mission after mission. No Spit in sight for months ? No P51 ? It is a bit awkward. On a different note, It looks strange to see British fighters escorting P47s with British markings... To my knowledge, most if not all RAF squadrons flying the P47 served against the Japanese, not in NWE. Hopefully, with the Typhoon, this historical inaccuracy will be corrected and British planes will conduct ground attack miss
  3. I am presently in the late stages of a FW190 (A8 and D9) career in BoBP. I'm way into March 1945 and the campaign is about to come to an end. Initially, I flew in the British sector and after a few missions of the "intercept enemy planes " and "troop cover" variety, all I was flying were Free Hunt missions. My last 40 missions at least have been Free Hunts. I recently transferred to the American sector (late February 1945), flying the D9, and I'm still getting one Free Hunt mission after another. Against the RAF/RCAF, I initially encountered Spits and even some P47s in the ground
  4. Thanks for the list. Made me realized that Kommando Nowotny went under my radar. I already had all the others, except the Ju52 one, because I do not really like this plane.
  5. @Jade_Monkey, Thanks for this campaign. It convinced me to buy the GAZ. Not sure how to handle it (is there a tutorial for vehicles ?), but I love the Hurri (This kite, I know how to handle 🙃)
  6. I can confirm that AI suicidal behavior affects all careers and all planes. It is not only affecting E/A but friendlies also. 2 days ago I started a FWA8 campaign in BoBP. Initially, I only saw Spitfires committing suicide. Then I flew a free hunt mission and 3 of the AI planes in my squadron just decided to dive to the ground and end it all right there...
  7. I stongly suggest that the devs co-erect, I mean correct this typo asap
  8. Brief description : E/A dives & crashes to the ground while being chased Detailed description : May be this is a problem that has been reported before. I noticed this on multiple occasions in at least two different careers : BoM (Mig-3) and BoBP (Spit XIV). I'm on the six of an E/A trying to get it in my sight and all of a sudden, to evade the pursuit, the E/A in question just dives to the ground and crashes !! I don't even have to fire at it ! Then on the radio I hear "target destroyed", but I don't get the credit for the kill. Strange AI behavior... I started no
  9. Sea Dragon was one of the first, if not the first scripted campaign I completed a year and a half ago. I performed poorly (in terms of targets destroyed) but truly enjoyed the campaign, although some missions are repetitive. I decided to replay it recently and just completed it tonight. Did much better, but nothing to write home about I guess. At least I was only shot down 3 times I think, lol... AAA is deadly, you want to avoid it as much as possible. I was pleased to see that my accuracy with rockets and bombs had improved from 18 months ago. But my favorite weapon was the VYA-23, what a bea
  10. To my knowledge, no... May be the probable was initially credited as a firm kill, and then the decision was overturned, based on different evidences... This happened, but generally the other way around... Again, thanks for the skin and the historical research.
  11. Strangely, but may be not, the site "acesofww22" reports that all of his kills occurred between June 7 and July 17, 1944 (second tour ?) when he was flying the Spit. The claim painted on his Hurri was quite likely the probable Bf109 of 18 sept 1941. Still, great pics and skin, thanks !! He was nicknamed "Robbie" Robertson. No, I'm not talking about The Band's lead guitarist here. Same name, both Canadians, but one generation apart... not even related , lol https://acesofww2.com/can/aces/robertson.htm
  12. IMHO, as far as AI is concerned, E/A behavior may have improved a little more than that of friendlies. At least, when you're on their six, they just don't stand there like sitting ducks waiting to be shot. They take evasive actions and are much more difficult to shoot down than in the past. And when they chase you into your territory while RTB, they eventually abandon the chase if you manage to put some distance between you and them. You will still attract them like a magnet though, the moment they spot you, and they will spot you...Specifically...Re friendly AI : it seems like sometimes there
  13. Bonne Année à tous nos cousins français !! Et à toute la communauté IL-2 en fait !
  14. I concur. Gotta give my vote to the FW190A3. Heavily armed, fast and agile
  15. Description : Career mode, hurricane, BOM... Squadron's airfield is located in enemy territory... Detailed description : Those screenshots tell it all... More detailed comments : Ok guys, I'll sound like a whiner again, but I can assume it, because some things seem obvious to me ; let me say first that I love this sim and the Hurricane, a joy to fly...But, cause there is a but.. : I know that the MP community is very vocal here, but why are you guys releasing a plane or an update if it is not well implemented into career mode ? This is the 3rd
  16. Brief description : BoM, Hurricane career, no reinforcement Detailed description : I'm 6 operational weeks into this career (early December 41 - mid January 42). My squadron has obviously lost pilots and planes. None (0+0) have been replaced since the beginning of the career. For more than 2 operational weeks now, I've been stuck with 8 pilots and 3 planes... Miraculously, nobody is getting KIA anymore, no planes are total loss anymore...Seems like a bug...
  17. Brief description : Bomber run within held territory Detailed description : Hurricane career, Moscow. Bomber escort missions are often within held territory. No "pockets of resistance " involved here... just plain f***??up. It happens regularly. Out of 10 or 11 missions so far in career mode, it happened 3 times. You will understand obviously that in such missions, nothing happens : you escort the Pe-2's to the target... They bomb the target... And you return home... There are no E/A to be encountered. Zzzzzzz...
  18. I'll probably make a Borat out of myself, because English is not my first language, but here are my first impressions about the good old Hurri, in career mode. I have started 2 different careers, BoM and BoS. Moscow is frustrating; the .303s don't pack much of a punch, but I did get one kill after a few missions. Now... When you fly BoS, you have the option to modify with 2 BS and 2 ShVAK; they deliver, believe me, it turns the Hurri into quite a beast. Ammunitions are few, you have to get close and personal, but you will shoot down those F4.
  19. Yes, that's what I thought... Tks...
  20. Since the Hurricane is about to be released and playable on the Eastern front, I have a question for those more knowledgeable than I am : How many Soviet pilots achieved ace status with the good old Hurri ? I only know of a few : Pavel Gavrilov (Пётр Миха́йлович Гаври́лов), 152 IAP, who was KIA on March 22, 1943. He was deployed on the Karelian front and only one of his kills (with the Hurrri MkIIB) can possibly be confirmed with a certain level of certainty, based on German / Finnish records http://surfcity.kund.dalnet.se/soviet_gavrilov.htm Petr Sgibnev, w
  21. This is an interesting campaign; in career mode, you can fly a "night fighter" Bf110 squadron (BOK), but actually you only fly... Day missions !!! And 3 times out of four you end up going after 8 A20s escorted by 3 Yaks. It becomes a bit boring after a while. That's why I ultimately stopped playing this career after 15 missions or so. Only did one mission of this campaign so far, but I'm curious to see what's next. Good work.
  22. I obtained the same results (reactivating all missions) using the "Convert mission to binary" option
